Choose the most comfortable and reliable salon furniture for your spa salonby monika r. Consultant
Spa salon furniture wouldn’t necessarily be classed as a hot topic in the industry, yet it remains an area of key importance. Furniture as a critical component in the creation of salon or spa’s look and feel, is a fundamental part of the client satisfaction. Comfort, durability, hygiene, cost, design and aesthetic, size and functionality have a big value during the decision-making process of your clients. To help you with your furniture purchasing decisions, we made a guide to some of the key items for your spa salon.
These chairs generally require access to a water source and can be configured in different ways, either as an all-in-one unit with the chair and wash basin or as two separate elements. For pedicure chairs integrating water sources, look for chairs with pipeless jet systems because it's more hygienic. Durability, comfort, hygiene and the ability to easily and safely clean a pedicure chair must be also considered in other areas of the furniture design. Height adjustable chairs are a definite advantage as well. Also, don't forget where the technician will be positioned during the procedures.
Comfort is unsurprisingly the key concern here. Clients can spend a long time sitting in them. Styling chairs should be well-cushioned, have lumbar support, padded armrests and footrests. Ensure that the seats are height-adjustable and made from a durable and easy to clean materials. Durability is also very important. Look for well-built chairs that won’t scratch, damage, squeak, rust or wear and tear easily. Also, consider how the design of the chairs will fit in with the overall look of your salon. If you're looking for bigger chairs, you may have to consider purchasing one or two fewer than you planned.
Styling stations and trolleys
The key point of the station or trolley is that it is a mobile storage unit, so the stylist has all the important items in an organized and easy to access space. As with other items of spa or salon furniture, the most important factor here is functionality. Select a trolley or station that is practical in size and will easily store all the items you need. Also, don't forget about the height of these items as well. Hair stylists usually stand up all day. If we speak about the stations for nail technicians, these often double up as areas for clients to rest their feet on, or technicians to sit on during the treatment. So, take that into account too.
Massage beds and treatment tables
These items may also be known as couches or loungers, and while bying them a ‘try before you buy’ policy is needed. Your clients will spend more than 60 minutes on them, and any discomfort experienced will reflects on your client's satisfaction. Consider the width of the bed and think about how these items will be used in treatments. Nowadays massage beds and tables come with a big amount of options. But sturdiness and durability are essential for this type of furniture. Height adjustability is also very important. A plus point can become the option of heating or warming the bed.
Make your salon furniture the central figure of your spa salon and people will always come to you!
