Renting a booth through an existing salon restricts you to only being able to work when the salon is open to the public. Renting a salon suite will allow you to control the hours that you work. A rental will also let you control how large your workspace is.
Real Estate Listings
A salon suite rental will require you to pay the owner of the land on a recurring basis. Having access to a rental suite will give you more freedom than you are currently experiencing. A rental may come fully equipped with high-end furnishings, electrical hookups, and salon equipment. A rental may also be empty, which will allow you to decorate and furnish the rental in any manner that you select.
First, assess the salon materials that you already own. Make a list of the items that you will be in need of, including client salon chairs, mirrors, waiting room furnishings, and reception area furnishings. Then, contact a real estate agent and inquire about salon suites that will be well-suited for your needs.
A rental agreement may require that you have a background check conducted on you or that you supply references and pay a security fee. Your real estate agent can help you find a salon rental that is located in a high-traffic area or in one that is conveniently located near where you reside.
Other Things To Address
As a business owner, you will be able to decide if you will be serving your clients on your own or if you would like to have other salon workers tend to some of the services that your clients seek. If you are going to hire some staff members, you will likely want to rent a salon suite that contains enough space to serve multiple clients at the same time.
The addition of some employees may require you to create a budget that will satisfactorily pay for your rental space, your employees' wages, and any essential materials or furnishings that you do not already have access to.
If you would like to lower the overall price that you will be paying each month to maintain your rental suite, consider renting out booth space within your new suite. Make sure that this type of arrangement is something that your rental terms will allow. If you are going to rent a suite on a month-to-month basis, rent out booth space that coincides with your personal rental agreement.
