The style of a salon easily transpires through the salon furniture used to furnish the space. Clients often get their first impression of the place by taking a look at the salon, at how it is designed and at how inviting yet stylish the pieces of furniture are. The most important things to look for when choosing salon furniture is comfort and functionality. These two should be your priorities, but furniture that looks good is also important.
Some past and current trends
Years ago, the main trend in beauty parlors were the swivel chairs, but salon chairs have now changed in order to become more popular. That is not to say that inspiration from the past is not important. Hip salons, for instance, draw a lot if inspiration from who old barber shops used to look. Being that these are rather timeless pieces and that their appeal has not decreased over the years, it is only fitting that more and more salons are incorporating them into their design.
Other things, like shelves, trolley and carts are important as well. You need them to be efficient, functional and yet to look good and not make a discordant note with the rest of the salon. The waiting and the reception areas are also important, and you want to make sure that the furniture that you use in these areas will manage to give a good impression to those who come into the salon. More so, you want these spaces to be comforting and inviting.
