How to Create Your Dream Salon Studio

Boulder salon studios

If you’re ready to start your search for Boulder salon studios, you may be busy dreaming up ways to transform the space once you’ve signed the lease. At Indie Salons, you’re free (and encouraged) to set up your dream studio salon. If you need a little inspiration, we share some tips below to help you achieve your vision and wow your clients.

Creating Dreamy Boulder Salon Studios

Choose a Theme

A theme for your salon space ties the look together and creates an inviting atmosphere for clients. If you don’t have a theme in mind or are having a hard time narrowing down the options, start by identifying your favorite item or element that you plan to bring to the studio. For example, an eye-catching accent pillow, piece of art, or even a wall color or wallpaper that you love can serve as the focal point for you to build upon.

Consider Paint and Wall Color

At Indie, it’s not just décor that you have creative license with–the walls in your space are also yours to design. Several of our Indies have taken a bold approach with graphic walls, while others prefer clean and crisp bright white walls. For those looking for a pop of color, an accent wall or wallpaper accents offer fun flair for your space without being overwhelming to the eye.

Accent with Great Lighting

You already know that lighting is essential for showing off your work, but you may be surprised to discover just how influential light fixtures can be. Once you’ve chosen a theme for your studio, start exploring options for lighting. A sparkling chandelier or geometric light fixture may be a beautiful touch to enhance the space.

Don’t Forget the Shelving and Cabinets

The color(s) you choose for the walls is important, but don’t overlook the cabinets! Clean white cabinets are a trend right now, but colorful cabinets may be an excellent choice to complement white walls. In addition to the cabinets, shelving is a must for your space (especially if you plan to reap the benefits of our rent rewards program by selling products). The right shelving will help you stay organized and allow you to display your products in a visually appealing way.

Add Comfortable Seating to your Boulder Salon Studios

Want to make your studio feel more inviting? Offer comfortable seating for your clients to lounge in while they wait for their service to be completed. Whether you choose plush leather seating or sleek, modern chairs, your clients will appreciate this extra touch.

The ability to design your own space is just one of the many reasons it’s great to be an Indie. The aesthetic that you choose for your salon studio reflects your personality and the essence of your business, and is crucial for leaving a lasting impression on clients.
