Having established a successful business over the years with a number of beauty salons, The Salon Stop saw the opportunity to increase their customer base in their Cheltenham store.
When they approached Mewscraft in Autumn 2018, they were in the process of moving from a small unit on the First floor of The Regents Arcade shopping centre, to a more lively location next to the prestigious Cavendish House, also part of the shopping centre.
They asked Mewscraft to present them with a proposal for complete design and refurbishment of the new unit, which was trading as a hairdresser at the time.
Planning the space in this new, small unit was vitally important. All the needs of the Staff and Customers had to be carefully considered. Our Clients required a treatment room, reception space, waiting area and a beauty bench, all to be comfortably integrated into the space.
The treatment room was installed at the back of the space, segregated off by a partial height partition. The main area was designed to have the reception desk, beauty bench and waiting area working together seamlessly.
As the Salon Stop did not have rigid branding guidelines, the Mewscraft Designers were free to choose from the many options for finishes, colours and style. Being located next to Cavendish House the expected Customer profile lead the design brief. The aesthetic of luxury yet affordability trickles through the design of the interior. The result is one of sophisticated quality and style.
Designing and carrying out the full refurbishment of the Salon Stop beauty salon, was a rewarding but challenging task, with a few hurdles along the way. With the Shopping Centre Management putting in a new glazed shop-front, this meant that parts of the floor needed retiling. Asbestos was found in the ceiling, but this was duly managed in line with Health and Safety requirements. A new ceiling, lighting and some additional electrics were all required to make the Salon work as a business.
Mewscraft tackled the challenges with enthusiasm, creativity, problem-solving and careful consideration. The result is a contemporary, professional and stylish space, and a very happy Client!
