Optimize Your Salon Layout:

The fundamental step towards maximizing your salon's functionality is a well-planned layout. With limited space, every square inch becomes valuable real estate. For example, strategically position your styling stations with plenty of working space and ensure your shampoo units are conveniently placed near a water supply line. Efficiency in movement is key to a successful salon layout.

Choose Furniture Designed for Efficiency:

The right salon furniture can significantly enhance the utilization of your space. Proper furniture can improve your workflow and promote a professional atmosphere. We offer a wide selection of high-quality, space-optimized salon furniture to compliment any space's layout and size.

Adopt Smart Inventory Management Practices:

Efficient inventory management is crucial in a small salon. Overstocking not only leads to waste but also clutters your space. Regularly review your stock levels and order products as per your immediate requirement to ensure all available space is maximized for what's needed at the moment. 

Illuminate Your Space Thoughtfully:

Lighting plays a pivotal role in enhancing the perception of space. A well-lit salon appears more spacious and inviting. Consider layered LED lighting that includes ambient, task, and accent lights to create a warm and welcoming environment. For example, our Glo LED Styling Stations offer the benefits of a color-correcting LED light with many space-saving features such as compact storage, a pull-out appliance center, vented iron holders, and space for proper cord management.

Employ Mirrors to Create Illusion of Space:

Mirrors can significantly contribute to creating an illusion of a larger space. Strategically positioning mirrors to reflect light can help expand your salon's visual field plus add a welcoming touch to guests looking to check out their all-new appearance. Products such as our Glo LED Half Mirror or Glo LED Round Mirror are perfect for adding a touch of elegance to your salon without taking up too much valuable real estate. They both feature a full frame of adjustable color-correcting LED lights with a power button embedded in the mirror itself.


Creating a successful salon in a small space requires strategic planning, smart choices, and efficient management. Equipped with these expert tips and the right partner by your side, you are poised for success, regardless of your salon's size. With these expert tips and the support of a trusted partner like Standish, you are well-equipped to create a thriving salon, regardless of its size.
