A Guide to Purchasing the Perfect Beds and Couches for Your Spa

2nd January 2018 | Salon Beds

The city life is a fast-paced and taxing environment. Escaping it for a little while can be healthy for your mind and body. 

After a long day at work, spending an hour or two at the nearest spa is a marvellous idea for most of us. There’s nothing more relaxing than sitting back in a soft, cosy chair while receiving a gentle foot scrub at the end the day. 

For spas, comfort is your speciality. 

And furnishings play a big role in keeping your clients comfortable during their stay. Your choice of beds and couches affects their experience and, as a result, their well-being. It is crucial that you choose the most suitable pieces of furniture for your spa.

In this short guide we’ve highlighted the main considerations you should take when purchasing new furniture for your spa.

The Dimensions

Spa chairs can take a lot of space, so be sure to purchase ones that fit in your relaxation centre but can still provide room for you to move. Since spa chairs can prove tricky to move around, allocate a spot for it before you confirm your purchase. 

Serving its Purpose

The first question you should ask yourself before searching for salon beds or couches is: What exactly will I use them for? The answer to the question will help narrow down your options and give you a good reason to invest in high-quality and fitting furniture. Some clients come to us looking for a couch for pedicures while others want salon beds for their massage services. Knowing their purpose makes it easier for you to decide what will go into your spa.

Features and Specifications

Once you’ve figured out the purpose of your furniture, you can look for chairs with the features and specifications that accommodate your needs. Each salon couch has a unique design – choose one that fits your requirements the best.

The DELTO Wooden Fixed Height Couch, for example, is a stylish fixed height couch with a dark wooden frame. It has an adjustable backrest and a breather hole for massages. The COXI Static Beauty Couch & Massage Table, on the other hand, is a modern product that has a white finish, a removable headrest and a hidden storage rack. This is ideal for smaller rooms or beauty training schools because of its versatility.

You’ll be surprised at how many things a single salon bed or couch offers if you read more about the product. Be sure to do your research before you make your purchase. 

Coherence in Design

When you’re left with a couple of suitable choices but don’t know which one to settle on, try to visualise each product in your spa. Does it blend well with your other furniture or does it stick out like a sore thumb? Does it match your spa’s overarching design theme or does it clash with it? Does it add anything valuable style-wise to your interiors or does it create a jarring element? When shopping for spa couches and beds, we can’t deny the importance of aesthetics. A chair should strike the perfect balance between function and style.

If your spa has a minimalist aesthetic, the PJS-HERN Luxury Electric Height Spa Couch and the PJS-VOME 3 Motor Salon Couch are perfect fits. They have sleek, elegant designs and clean, white finishes that go well with a modern interior. For rustic-themed spas that want to emulate the peacefulness of nature, the DELTO Wooden Fixed Height Couch and the ULNA Electric Spa Couch with 3 Motors are suitable options. The two spa couches are designed with wood and dark brown components that resemble mahogany trunks.

A professional designer can help during the decision-making process. If you’re unsure about what it is you’re looking for, we’ll be happy to guide you through your options. 

Make and Material

Other than the function and design, you should also take a close look at the material of the spa couch. PVC upholstery leather is one of the most common materials for salon beds. Stick to high-quality material that can last years with minimal maintenance. 

Some spa chairs can collect dead skin, dirt, germs and soap scrum after several months and years of use. Fabrics that are also easy to clean will make maintenance tasks less daunting in the future for you.

Comfort and Relaxation

Perhaps the most important aspect of buying salon beds and couches is its level of comfort. When you stay still in one position, you may soon feel discomfort. Your customers could be sitting or lying on your spa beds for hours. Choose only the most comfortable equipment in the market for your spa. 

If you want to know if a piece of furniture is comfortable, feel free to test it out yourself. Stay away from furniture that is too hard or too soft – the extremes can be uncomfortable for customers. Chairs with backrests and footrests allow the customer to relax. 

Customer Ratings and Reviews

The beauty of the Internet is that you can make smarter decisions regarding your investments with only a few clicks. One way to do so is to search for ratings or reviews about the item you have your eye on.

If you’re looking for the perfect salon chair, read about what customers say about their features, quality and comfort level. Products with positive feedback from previous and existing customers give you the peace of mind that you need before confirming your purchase.
