A well-executed salon or beauty salon interior design can communicate and reinforce your brand message and pave the way for a more enjoyable customer experience.
That’s why it’s important to stay up to date on design trends and think regularly about making improvements to ensure your salon looks and feels appealing to customers.
Most of the 2022 salon interior design trends are a continuation of what we have seen in recent years. It is still valued that the form, the design, is at the service of the function and the ergonomics and a preference for the natural, the organic and the simple is introduced.
In addition to taking trends into account, there are a number of factors that never fail. Here are 3 tips on interior design that will definitely help you improve the customer experience in your salon:
Build around an eye-catching piece (or two)
If you’re not sure where to start decorating and the space in your salon feels a little dull, it can be tempting to start adding cool and quirky objects left and right. However, without a central theme, you risk creating a messy, chaotic atmosphere.
Try finding one or two eye-catching furniture or ornaments – specific pieces that you really like – and start building from there. Combine the rest of the decoration with style, with colours, designs or complementary items.
A decontextualized piece of furniture such as a sofa or a chest of drawers. Or a set of lamps with a lot of personality, would be a good example.
- Use mirrors and colour to make small spaces look bigger
Use a classic decoration that is still valid: when it comes to creating the illusion of spaciousness in a slightly reduced space, mirrors are your best ally.
Above all, in rooms with work spaces where there are often several people and you have to take advantage of every square meter, it is important to use resources to maintain the feeling of comfort and habitability.
Place a mirror in front of or just next to a natural light source (windows, basically), for the best effect. Keep in mind that it works better with a single large mirror than with many small ones.
A strategically located styling unit with a large mirror can provide this effect. This is our favourite selection of mirrors for barbershops and salons (link to styling units and mirrors).
As for colours, a clear and light colour palette will keep the space feeling open: white, pastel and neutral tones are the best choice when you want to create a feeling of spaciousness.
- Try to be minimalist
The minimalist style is on the rise and allows you to completely eliminate the clutter giving your salon a fresh, clean and super chic atmosphere that will delight your customers.
Here are the accessories that will help you have your salon more organized:
– Auxiliary trolley (link to trolley section)
– Hairdryer holder (Link to CHRIS)
Another aspect to keep in mind is that minimalism has a big advantage for the pocket. The fewer items you have in sight, the more you can spend on each one, so you can invest in high-quality things that last.
