How to Use Modern Interior Design Style in Your Salon

Modern Salon Design

Simple and unadorned, modern is a minimalist style rooted in a preference for asymmetry and sharp, angular lines. With a lack of unnecessary embellishment, modern interiors tend to lean towards being practical rather than ornamental. Although sparse in appearance, modern design has a flair for eye-catching details such as abstract wall art, a bold décor piece, or a pop of color against an otherwise neutral backdrop.

The goal is to maintain a streamlined look that doesn't feel overly cold or sterile. With that in mind, modern interior design styles tend to mix in a wide array of natural materials including, stone, wood, and leather. Industrial-inspired elements such as concrete and steel, and materials such as glass, plastic, plywood, and chrome are also common materials that characterize the style. When it comes to color, the focus is on clean and monochromatic. White and neutral color schemes rule the modern interior, but bold accent colors are frequently used in moderation and applied sparingly.

If you want to achieve the modern look in your salon, spa, or barbershop, check out our Designer Series, Stainless Steel, and Mid-Century Modern collections to find the perfect equipment for your space.
