In order to choose the best nail salon furniture, you must consider the needs of your salon, your budget, and your style. The furniture you choose plays an important part in setting the atmosphere of your salon, so you should plan your design carefully. Finding high quality salon furniture with the functionality you need and at a price you can afford can be a challenge, but there are many shopping options available. You can purchase a salon package, containing all the furniture pieces you need, purchase pieces individually, or buy pieces secondhand from classified ads or going-out-of-business sales.

Before you start shopping for nail salon furniture, make a list of your salon's specific needs. Depending on the size and style of your salon and the services it offers, you may need a wide variety of furniture. For instance, a small nail salon may only need a few chairs for a waiting area and some manicure tables and pedicure chairs. A larger salon may need comfortable furniture for a lounge area, a receptionist desk, a dozen or more manicure stations and spa chairs, as well as end tables, displays, and storage compartments.

It may help to ask a trusted employee to walk through your salon with you to determine what furniture you need. Remember that both your clients and your employees should be comfortable. Don't forget to add manicure chairs, pedicure stools, accessory trolleys, and other storage compartments to your list so that your employees have a well functioning work environment.

When you've created your basic list, consider what style of nail salon furniture you prefer. You can accentuate your style through your choice of accessories, finishes, and colors. You may find it cheaper to purchase pieces one by one based on their price and functionality, but if you don't have a decorating theme, the overall effect may be chaotic. Choose one style and stick to it so that your salon has a homogeneous, uncluttered atmosphere.

Next, determine your budget. Consider your monthly expenditures and profits to decide how much you can afford to spend on nail salon furniture. You will want high quality pieces that will last through many years of constant use, but balance quality with affordability. If certain items will undergo a significant amount of wear and tear, like the manicurist's stools and chairs, spend more on them. Save on wholly decorative items like displays and accessories.

After this preliminary work, you're ready to start shopping. Browsing online retailers is a good way to find out the current prices for the furniture you need. Some companies offer a service called salon packaging that outfits your entire salon for a fixed rate. These packages often provide a streamlined, cohesive look, saving you time in shopping for individual pieces, but they can also be expensive.

If your budget is extremely limited, consider searching your local area for salons that are going out of business. In some cases, you can purchase high quality furniture and supplies at a greatly discounted rate. You can also search outlet stores and classified ads, although this can be a time consuming process. The advantage is that you can save money by not purchasing new salon furniture or a salon package.
