If you hope to own and run your own salon then you should
hopefully know by now that it’s not quite as easy as your daydreams led you to
believe. There is a lot of hard work that goes into opening a salon and the
first step to it all is finding the perfect property:
Type of property
There are a few options when it comes to the type of
property suitable for your salon. You could have a store front (the most common
type of space), rent a mall space, or have a freestanding building. Your
options are obviously going to be limited by your budget, which is why you need
to think hard about what you have to spend and how much you expect to make.
Store fronts are the most popular for a reason: they are the cheapest to rent,
get a good amount of foot traffic and can be easily expanded. If your business
starts getting too big for your property you could easily buy the space next
door and make your salon double the size. You can find a cheap UK commercial property
to rent online that you can move into in no time at all and have
your salon up and running in no time at all. Then, once you’ve got some loyal
customers and notoriety, you could move into a freestanding property and turn
your sweet salon into a luxury salon and spa.
Finding the right location is possibly the most important
part of finding the perfect place to put your salon. To start, your salon needs
to be accessible and visible both in the car and on foot. Finding a location
with a lot of foot traffic is a great idea because people are bound to walk by
and consider going in for some pampering. A property that has other shops
around it is a great idea because people will often be wandering around to the
different shops and spot your salon along the way. You should also find a
property in an area that’s safe and has a reasonably low crime rate. No one’s
going to visit your salon if they’re worried that they might get mugged on the way.
Finally, your salon should have a decent amount of parking available and
wheelchair access to ensure that all the customers that want to visit your
When buying your salon you need to know how much space and
what sort of facilities you’ll need. Obviously, one of the biggest things your
salon is going to need is space. Your average salon has a lot of equipment so
you need to make sure that there’s enough space to fit it all as well as your
employees and customers. If you’re going to be offering services that require
privacy, like waxing, you’re also going to need a spare room other than the
main salon floor. You’ll also need a supply of electricity and water and good
quality lighting so your employees can see what they’re doing. Don’t rush into
buying your property and always think about what sort of improvements you can
and can’t afford.
