Waiting

What to look for in your waiting chairs

A salon waiting area is the first thing a client sees, and it sets the tone for their entire experience. Here’s what to consider when choosing your salon reception chairs.

Check measurements

Take the measurements of the spa reception chairs you’re considering. You need to be absolutely sure they’ll fit comfortably in your designated waiting area.

Remember that clients also need adequate floor space to move around freely.

There should also be a good amount of space between each seat.

Make sure it’s comfortable

Clients could potentially spend 20 minutes or more in your salon lobby chairs. Uncomfortable seating can make the wait feel even longer.

Ensure that your waiting room furniture is considerate of every type of client, regardless of size, shape and mobility.

A client that’s made to feel good from the get-go is more likely to return to a salon.

Decide on the upholstery

Because a reception area is generally high-traffic, the material of your spa lobby chairs is an important factor to consider.

Certain materials are more durable than others. The longer the upholstery lasts, the more money it will save you in the long run.

Waiting room furniture should also be covered with fabric that’s stain-resistant and easy to clean.
