Glasshouse’s top five tips on renovating/refurbishing a salon.

  • Plan well and set realistic budgets.
  • Be clear with written quotes and design drawings. It’s important to have email chains and information on prices, timings and measurements to help manage the project and avoid misunderstandings.
  • Know your brand and clientele and work within an appropriate style.
  • Know how you will work in the space to make it useful, eg: our colour mixing area is near the basin as we mix a lot of toners there.
  • Imagine yourself as the client. What will they see and how will they feel walking into the space? Does it look warm and inviting?
