"Beautiful Salons Don't Happen By Luck; they happen by Design." - Phil Taylor, 2023

Next to the quality of a salon's work, the greatest draw card in attracting the clientele you desire rests with the presentation of your salon space. It should speak to and be a reflection of your brand's style. From contemporary chic to raw industrial, having an up-to-date and functional salon can elevate your profile whilst increasing revenue. Here we'll share our top 5 tips to get it right.

  1. Design
  2. Budget & Finance
  3. Timelines
  4. Customisation
  5. Quality 

Salon Design

Work from a solid foundation.

The key elements of salon design should include practical considerations to ensure your space is both functional & aesthetically pleasing. Working with the right designer will ensure important cohesion between salon design & salon furniture, as the two should flow. Our expert team can cover everything from drafting designs to completing your dream salon, removing the pressure of dealing with multiple trades and, in most instances, saving clients money.

Salon Budget & Finance

Do you know all your options?

Establishing a realistic budget is critical to know what types of furniture & fit-out will be achievable. Financial options such as 'leasing to own' could be a smart move!

Financing your furniture and fittings can improve your cash flow with easy-to-manage monthly payments and no large initial outlay. Furthermore, you'll enjoy the tax benefits of leasing, which is 100% tax deductible.


Salon Build & Design Timelines

Get realistic.

Good things come to those who wait or perhaps those who plan.....

Too often, we speak with salon owners who come to us with a vision but an unrealistic timeline. As a guide and to maximise results, give yourself six months for planning and execution of salon re-design / fit-out work and up to 12 weeks for premium salon furniture custom fabrication and delivery.


Salon Customisation

Colour is the new black.

When it comes to your salon furniture, there's always been a better time to be creative, and something else will make a salon stand out from the crowd, like bespoke furniture. We encourage clients to experiment with various colours, finishes, patterns, textiles and personal embossing, to name just a few options that will set you on the path to creating an original/custom piece of furniture that's a talking point in your salon.


Salon Furniture Quality

Salon furniture is an investment.

The old saying, 'you get what you pay for,' has never been truer than with salon furniture. In a market saturated with poor-quality budget products (requiring high turnover), consider investing in higher-quality furniture, which will be more economical in the long run and increase client comfort. For this reason, Space Salon Furniture works with the most trusted names globally, including Maletti Italy which has been the benchmark and industry reference point since 1936…
