How to Design Your Salon Interior

The way you design the interior of your salon, depending on the quality, can leave your clients doing one of two things: feeling at ease or fumbling for their keys. You don’t want the latter result, so of course you care about how your salon interior design comes across to customers.

In this article, we’ll look at a few essential elements for the interior design of your salon. Whether you specialize in nails, hair, skincare, or another area of beauty and wellness, you’re sure to find a valuable takeaway from this helpful guide.

Get Lit 

No, not like that! We’re talking about lighting schemes. If your salon has natural lighting, use it to the best of your ability and let the sun shine in. If you’re limited to artificial bulbs, you can still create an extremely ambient lighting environment. Be sure to choose warm-hued bulbs rather than cool, fluorescent ones. If the bulbs or lamps cast shadows in your salon, just make sure they fall outside of the areas where the clients will be seating. 

Plant Seeds of Success

Just a few potted plants can go a long way in increasing the aesthetic appeal of your salon’s interior design. If you have a waiting area with a coffee table, place a vase of fresh flowers right in the center. Not only will it make the space smell wonderful, but you’ll get to switch out the blossoms every week or so and try a new arrangement. If you’re concerned about allergens or dirt spills, there are plenty of shrubs and larger potted plants that low-maintenance and won’t leave a mud-print. Consider a ficus in a terracotta pot, a large philodendron, or — if you’re a fan of aromatherapy — a small citrus tree.

Feng Shui Away

Feng Shui can be understood as the ancient Chinese art of using environmental elements to create spaces with a balanced and harmonious flow of energy. When it comes to small spaces, this design balance is especially important. 

If a salon does not have properly balanced or complementary elements, an intuitive customer may pick up on those conflictual energies and find a more “zen” place to do business. So how do you optimize the feng shui of your salon? It’s certainly easier than learning Mandarin.

Focus on the elements of cleanliness, open layouts, calming colors (blue, green, pastels, etc.), and even water features like fountains or fish tanks. Incorporating any or all of these slices of feng shui are sure to leave your guests in a greater state of tranquility than they were before their visit.

Define Your Design

Although there are a number of fundamental tips and tricks when it comes to interior design, it’s still important to define your own sense of style in the way you choose to lay out your salon. 

Ask yourself what your favorite patterns and color schemes are. If you can’t think of anything that specific, try to imagine a general sense of what kind of work environment you’d ideally like to be surrounded by. Chances are, the kinds of design layouts that put you at ease will do the same for your clients. 

Lastly, don’t forget to pick at least a few bold statement pieces. Sprinkle them here and there throughout your square footage, but don’t let them all end up piled into a corner like a gaudy Christmas tree.

Whether it’s a vibrant section of stained glass or fur-covered accent pillows, just a little bit of audacity in your decor will come across as avant-garde and luxurious.

3 Steps to Make Your Salon’s Interior Work its Magic!

When starting out with your own beauty salon you have many things to worry about.

You may think that one of the most important factors are either your finances or staff or maybe even the service you give to your clients. . Yes, all these things have their own particular importance. But when it comes to establishing a successful business, a presentation is (or should be!) on top of the list of things that must be great! The presentation of your salon is determined by its interior design and how comfortable of an experience it provides to your clients. Let’s have a look at how the interior design of your salon can work its magic on your clients!

1.     A Welcoming Area

The first thing that any client would notice about your salon would be its reception area. The reception area should be accompanied by a lounge that allows clients to wait for their turn. Choose classy and stylish couches that make your clients’ stay cheerful and comfy. Additionally, it’s super important to have a well-trained receptionist that stays at the reception desk and is available for the clients. If there is no one attending to their queries, they might not get a very good idea about your services.

2.     Pick a Specific Color Scheme

Well, you might be thinking, it’s a salon no one would be living here. Why put all that effort into selecting a proper color scheme?   Well, you answered your question yourself. Your clients will be there for a brief period of time. A color scheme which is easy-on-the-eyes and accompanies by furniture that complements it, leaves a lasting impression on people. If they enjoy visiting your place, they are likely to come again even if your salon’s services are expensive!

3.     Everything Should Be Functioning Well

Your salon should not have any issues like bad plumbing or water leakages of any kind. It doesn’t leave a good impression on the customers. Its maintenance should be first class. There should not be any peeling paint, broken chairs or even unorganized workstations. The lighting should be comfortable for the clients. The beams should not be very high. It should be good enough for you and your staff to have proper visibility. All these things create the difference between a regular and satisfied client and a one-time visitor who would never return. The aesthetic factor plays a huge role in determining how well your business would do. Therefore, when starting out your beauty salon, you have to focus on the presentation of your salon.
