In this blog post, we’re going to take a look at two business environments in terms of design and furniture selection. So, let’s take a look…
Most women love going to the hairdressers. Not only do they love the opportunity to be pampered and have their hair dyed or styled, but they also love the chance to relax and catch up with others as well.
In order to ensure that people come to your hair salon instead of the other businesses available you need to stand out from the crowd. One of the ways in which you can do so is via the salon equipment and furniture you utilise. Not only should you make sure that the products are of the highest quality, but the different equipment used and furniture displayed should be stylish as well. After all, the atmosphere and the surroundings enhance the overall experience and thus make it more enjoyable.
Before you begin your shopping spree you should make a list of all of the different equipment and furniture pieces you need. This includes everything from washpoints, to salon chairs, to dryer banks, and so on and so forth. By creating a list you will be more organised and you will be able to source out your equipment more effectively.
Once you have a list ready, you can then begin to decide on a theme. What colour do you want the furniture and equipment to be? Do you want the style of the furniture to be modern? Or would you prefer it to have a more of a vintage look? This is something which is entirely down to you. Nevertheless, you need to think about the customers you are likely to attract and you need to ensure you cater to your client range. In addition to this, it is recommended that you stick to a colour scheme which incorporates no more than three colours because this can otherwise end up looking too cluttered.
It is recommended that you opt for equipment which is more simplistic in style. When buying washpoints for example your main concerns should be quality and comfort. You want your customers to feel at ease when you are washing their hair. There is nothing worse than an uncomfortable wash point because it causes strain on the neck and can be very uncomfortable. Therefore be careful not to be so drawn into the style of the equipment that you forget about quality.
The chance for you to add an injection of style and personality lies within the salon chairs you purchase. You can opt for lots of different styles. Moreover, the pad of the chair gives you the base to add colour and life into the salon. Therefore you can opt for a bright pink or turquoise salon chair if you wish to do so.
So there you have it; make a list of all the salon equipment and furniture needed, decide upon a theme, buy your equipment and keep in mind quality and comfort, and finally purchase your chairs and add the finishing touch of great style.
The design and decoration of your hotel is something that needs to be given a considerate amount of attention. You need to plan extensively and scrutinise every decision you are about to make before you go ahead and do so. The appearance and the quality of the furniture and interior style play a monumental role in how people view your hotel. It can be the difference between you being deemed a five-star hotel and a four star.
No place is more crucial in terms of furniture and interior design than your hotel bedrooms. This is where your guests are going to spend the majority of their time. The room needs to be relaxing and comfortable; both in terms of appearance and quality. Nobody wants to spend their holiday sleeping in an uncomfortable bed!
Nonetheless, this relates to all furniture, not just the bed. Often you find hotel owners stick an extra chair in the room merely for effect; to fill up a space or to appear more accommodating. Yet, if the chair is uncomfortable and/or of an awkward design, e.g. a small bar stool appearance, then what’s the point? This does more harm than good. Make sure every piece of furniture is selected with comfort and practicality in mind.
Now that the comfort factor has been dealt with it is important to consider the actual appearance of the hotel rooms. There are a lot of people who decide to have each room the same. There are others who have themed rooms and thus there is a different experience depending on the room you stay in. The choice is completely up to you.
Nonetheless, you need to make sure that the room itself is decorated in a complementary design. It is always recommended to go for two or three colours maximum in regards to your colour scheme. Anything else can make the place look cluttered and confusing.
If you are struggling to come up with a colour scheme then one tried and tested method is to use the colour wheel. Go for colours opposite each other, such as orange and blue, for a bold design. Go for colours next to each other for something more subtle.
Nevertheless, avoid going for anything too bright because vibrant colours are associated with energy, power and inspiration. They can make it difficult for your guests to relax. Thus, if you do decide to go down the orange and blue route then paler shades are recommended. Lighting also plays a key role here. An industrial electrician will be needed to ensure the right lighting environment across all the premises, including dimmer lights for the hotel rooms, and then you will need more comprehensive lighting in the storage areas and the bottom tier level of the hotel where a lot of the behind-the-scenes action goes on.
And last but not least, a final tip is to make sure you purchase hotel bedroom furniture that is easy to clean and look after. It is likely that your cleaners are already extremely busy as it is considering the wealth of rooms they need to clean. The last thing you want to do is make their job more difficult. Nor do you want to give the impression that you rarely maintain the rooms because the furniture picks up dirt easily or is easily tarnished due to poor quality.
