17 KL Cafe Interior Designs You Should Recreate at Home (37 photos) [Updated]

The dining and café scene in KL (and Klang Valley) has never been more interesting, with great examples of commercial interior design that you can replicate at home.

New establishments seem to pop up daily, with tongue twisting items on their menus. But beyond the quirky menu, the cafe interior design of some of these places would look awesome in your dining space at home. These places are highly instagrammable, and are great places to just hang around for hours.

So, why not take inspiration from them to give your own dining area at home the same vibe with a chic, stylish makeover? We rounded some of the best café and restaurant interiors in KL to inspire your dining room design.

4. Feeka, Bukit Bintang

What we like: The peeling paint and weathered masonry. Not something you may want to replicate at home, but great atmosphere! Oh, and the main barista area is located in a tall airwell, flooding it with lots of light. Nice!

5. Garage 51, Bandar Sunway

What we like: As the name suggests, this place really IS a converted garage. Lots of metal, chains and piping, including furniture made from oil barrels. There’s even a converted VW Beetle in front.
