How to choose a white salon reception desk
The reception desk for a salon is the first thing every visitor sees when they come in.
So it must be consistent with the overall look and feel of your salon.
Style and color
You can choose a sleek modern desk or a Revival unit, that borrows some elements of style from the past.
For example, Victorian, Rococo, or Georgian.
If your salon has a chic boutique-style where the customer feels like a princess, then a Revival desk is ideal for you.
If it’s a high tech salon then a contemporary-style piece would be perfect.
Of course, you should choose a desk that matches the color of the rest of your salon.
So if most of the furniture in your salon is white you should get a white salon reception desk.
Square or curved
You can also choose between square desks and curved desks with rounded corners.
This also depends on the overall style of other furniture in your salon.
And curved units are ideal for placing in the corner if you prefer that placement in your salon layout or simply don’t have enough space.
Finish and details
The finish of the desk is also important for the overall look.
It must be consistent with the materials used in the salon decor and in the other furniture pieces at your salon.
Some desks have frosted glass panels, marble countertops, carved wooden details, moldings.
These details could be the right decor accents for your interior.
LED lighting is a very nice detail that can beautify your desk and make it stand out.
You can also place a vinyl logo of your salon on the illuminated glass panel for the maximum impact.
There are desks that offer a front display area with shelves behind glass.
It’s a great feature for upselling beauty products at your salon.
You can put nail polishes, cosmetics, shampoos, and other items in that display area.
If your salon is small and you don’t have a lot of space then your best bet is a compact salon reception desk.
If you have a lot of space then you can choose a larger unit or even make a huge round reception desk from 5 individual segment modules, like the one Linea Italia is offering.
Your choice of desk also depends on how much storage you need.
Do you need a lot of shelves, drawers, and cabinets? Should they be open or closed?
Also, do you need a lockable drawer for personal belongings or cash?
Comfort and function
The desk should not be too high or too low. Its height is an important comfort factor.
It’s also important to decide on the construction of the desk. Will your employees be sitting or standing behind it?
And if they’ll be sitting then the desk should have a working area on the back and some space below, where they can put their legs if they pull a chair close to the desk.
Some units don’t have that space because it’s taken by a front display area or by storage shelves.
Some desks also have a convenient keyboard slide-out tray, a switch for LED lights, and a grommet for electric cords.
These added functions may be important for the comfort of your employees.
Thankfully, most salon reception desks arrive pre-assembled and ready to use. Or at least mostly assembled and easy to put together.
I hope that by using this list you’ll be able to select a perfect white salon reception desk that would become a great focal point for your place.
