A Guide to Choosing the Perfect Backwash Units for your Salon

As a Salon owner, ensuring your clients’ Comfort and Satisfaction is a Priority. The Backwash area is a key part of the Salon Experience, and the Design and Functionality of this space can significantly impact both your clients and staff. At REM, we specialise in Designing and Manufacturing High-quality Salon Furniture, including Bespoke Backwash units tailored to meet the diverse needs of today’s Salons.

Backwash Area Flooring

One of the emerging trends in modern salon design is installing the Backwash area on raised flooring. This clever design choice offers several benefits: it allows for the concealment of pipes and plumbing, maintaining a clean and uncluttered appearance, and by plumbing each unit separately, it avoids the need for unsightly link units, ensuring a more aesthetically pleasing setup.

Practical & Aesthetic Backwash Space

Hidden Wash Areas The wash area can quickly become messy with shampoos, treatments, and towels scattered around. To maintain a clean and inviting salon environment, consider hiding the wash areas behind screens. This approach keeps the workspaces tidy and out of direct view from the main salon area, providing a more relaxing experience for your clients.

Ample Workspace It’s important to provide adequate room around the Wash unit. A spacious setup prevents claustrophobia for both staff and clients, enhancing comfort and ease of movement. Ensuring there’s enough room for the operator to work efficiently will contribute to a smoother, more enjoyable experience for everyone involved.

Safety & Durability

The Backwash area is prone to water spills, chemical splashes, and shampoo spills, leading to frequent cleaning and mopping. To prevent accidents and ensure safety, invest in hard-wearing, non-slip flooring to minimise the risk of slips and falls, and keep the area clean and well-maintained to avoid any potential hazards that could lead to claims.

Lighting & Ambience

Quality lighting is essential, especially for clients in a reclined position. Overhead spotlights can be harsh and blinding, so consider creating a softer, more relaxed ambience in the wash area. Thoughtfully positioned lighting can make a significant difference in the overall comfort and mood of the space.

Colour & Décor

The Design and Décor of your Salon play a vital role in attracting and retaining clients. Using clever colour schemes and Stylish Décor can make your Salon more inviting. Collaborating with a Salon Design Specialist can help you create an ideal workspace that reflects your brand and enhances client satisfaction. Explore our Salon Design Services here.
