Ample and comfortable seating, sufficient storage, and functional workstations are the essentials of any salon. 

You can invest in good quality ergonomic chairs. Even though they might be slightly more expensive than regular chairs, the comfort they provide is unmatched and makes it a worthwhile investment. 

As much as possible, aim for maximum utilisation of the available space. At the same time, ensure there is enough free space to move around.

Time has become a luxury and quite often consumers want more services under the same roof. Consider creating multi-functional spaces so you can cater to different needs. By offering hair, nail, and skincare services in the same salon, you are sure to attract more customers. 

You can use partitions, movable walls, or re-arrangeable furniture to create different zones catering to different services. Also, a separate zone for relaxation and unwinding would be much appreciated by your clients.

Natural Appeal

More and more salons are incorporating the use of natural sustainable materials like reclaimed wood, bamboo, terracotta, etc. 

These materials are not just environment-friendly; they also lend warmth to the interiors. They are versatile and can be used for walls, floors, or countertops. 

Fountains or water features can be used to create a relaxing experience. You may even place easy-to-maintain potted plants to bring the outdoors in and purify the air.

Many organisations and individuals are conscious of their carbon footprint. If you can implement the same in your salon, you will not only appeal to eco-conscious customers but also make a positive impact on the planet. 

Energy-efficient lighting, recycling water, reducing wastage, composting, and using products that are free from animal testing or harmful chemicals are a few ways in which your salon can be a ‘green salon.’

Non-toxic cleaning products and low-VOC paints are excellent choices for creating a healthy and safe environment for your consumers and staff.
