Salon Design Layouts

Deciding on a Salon Design Layout

Finalizing on a salon design will require to take a couple of factors into account. The first and most important thing to keep in mind before picking one of the design layouts you have at your disposal is the space that you have for your salon. Whether you are renting the space or buying your own space, you need to ensure that all the equipment you have for the salon fits in and the space is not cluttered by things. You need to have enough space to allow for unhindered movement. The kind of equipment will also allow you to narrow down on the options that you have. Some of the basic equipment that you will definitely have in your salon are styling chairs, wash basins, pedicure and manicure kits and basins, trolleys, etc. Other than the basic equipment that you will require for the varied services that you offer, you will also need a reception area and a seating area for those clients awaiting their turn.

Most big salons that offer a range of services have four basic areas. These include, as mentioned before, a reception area, a hair cutting and coloring area, manicure and pedicure areas, and a massage area. The reception area is the first space that anyone walking into the salon will notice and therefore, this needs to be done up in an eye catching and innovative manner. Ensure that it is inviting and not overbearing. It should be comfortable and have enough space to allow customers to lounge and wait for their appointment. Next come the areas for hair cutting and coloring. It may be a good idea to keep these sections slightly apart instead of having them placed together. Ensure that the arm chairs that you procure for your salon are comfortable and allow for adjustment. It is advisable to have the manicure and pedicure area placed adjacent to each other as there are a lot of components used for the two services that are common and having them placed together will save storage space for you. Also ensure that wash basins are in proximity to this area so that there is no discomfort caused to your clients or your employees. The last area that you will need to plan for is the space where you will provide spa and massage services. This space need to ensure privacy for the client and should be in proximity to the restroom and the shower area.

Once you have the basics of the design planned out, there are other design details that you will need to decide on. First and foremost, you will need to consult your interior designer and zero in on any theme that you are contemplating. Your interior designer will be able to provide you with several interior designing ideas for your beauty salon. Once you have a theme decided, you can decide what color schemes work for your salon's design. For a salon for woman, the palette will be ideally made up of feminine colors like lavender, pinks, etc. For men, the colors that are ideal would be grays, whites, greens, etc. If your clientele is made up of kids, then opt for bright, funky colors. You will also need to make decisions like how many work stations you will have and the placement of the reception and waiting area with respect to the working area. Your interior designer/decorator should be able to help you decide on the accessories that you can use to decorate the interiors. Match the artwork, vases, etc., to the theme and colors that you have picked out. Picking salon design layouts becomes much easier if you have an interior designer, especially if your prior experience is limited.
