The furniture that you use in your salon is an important part of your business that is often overlooked by many business owners. There are a number of important factors that you have to take into consideration when choosing the correct salon furniture for your premises.

The first point, which some would categorise as the most important, is the design. Does the design of the salon furniture match the décor and atmosphere of your salon? Is your salon in a modern and cosmopolitan city centre, which requires a stylish and bespoke looking collection of furniture? These are the type of questions you should be asking yourself as a business owner when selecting the correct salon furniture. This will allow you to select the best, most contemporary looking furniture for your salon.

The second factor to consider is the shape and size of the furniture you are selecting. You need to work within the constraints of the space you have available, to best maximise the square footage you have. You should take into consideration how many members of staff you have, if you have 5 members of staff, you may not want more than 6 or 7 work stations. Instead, contemplate expanding your customer waiting area, offering display shelves, waiting chairs and a functional reception desk. After all, this is generally the area that a client will see first when they enter your salon.

The third and final factors that you should consider are the ergonomics of the salon furniture you are choosing. Your clients will be sitting on a salon chair or beauty bed for a number of hours, so they must not cause any discomfort to the client or you may loose their repeat custom. Make sure you select comfy, yet practical salon furniture.
