Vancouver Commercial Painting

The best part about hiring commercial painting services is being able to lay your business’s appearance in the hands of skilled experts. After all, a business property’s appearance is almost as important as the quality of its products or services.

Soody’s Hair Studio contacted AZ’s expert team of Vancouver Commercial Painters in need of our commercial interior painting services. For this hair salon renovation, our team made intensive preparations and worked with extreme detail.

Preparation for Interior Painting

Generally, preparation involves making sure the surfaces are in good shape. This usually includes making any necessary wall repairs, such as drywall patching or caulking, followed by detailed sanding to ensure the pain lays smoothly. 

Since the artificial ceilings were gone, there was a lot of unseen damage to the drywall that had been previously hidden. We had to make sure that the full height of the wall was in perfect shape. So, we patched the drywall, going right up to the roof, and then sanding it down, as per our regular prep protocol. 

For each of AZ’s projects, preparation is vital to the management of the team, the project deadline, and the tasks at hand. This is important, not only to our clients but also for our team to stay on track and work as efficiently as possible.

Before we started off this hair salon renovation project, we first removed and covered all the salon furniture in preparation for our commercial painting services. This ensured that everything would be safe from any drips that could happen while we painted the ceilings.

Next, removed the artificial ceilings to reveal the true industrial roof. This was to be the first part of the painting part of the project but not before making certain preparations.

Commercial Interior Painting Process

Following our methodical preparation process, our commercial painting team began the process of painting the ceilings to match the salons theme. 

As you can see from the pictures above, our commercial painters changed the ceiling’s previous white, to a more suitable black color. Usually, black is not the most ideal color for interior painting, but this project was an exception. 

By removing the salon’s current ceilings, we exposed the higher industrial metal ceilings, which gave the salon more space. However, the white ceilings reflected the studio lighting in a very unflattering way.

The new black color reflected less light from the studio lighting, which had a beneficial effect. Now, instead of being reflected off the white roof, the salon’s studio lighting was concentrated downward.

Safety Concerns

Because we were working with high industrial ceilings, this project needed specialized knowledge and training to be able to work at that height. Luckily, working with AZ Painting in Vancouver, means that all of our clients can rest assured that our whole team is trained and certified in necessary skills and in all of the WorkSafe BC regulations.

Painting The Salon:

Next, our team of commercial painters started on the walls carefully color-matching them to the salon’s logo colors. We refreshed the walls with high-quality commercial interior paint, design for color pigmentation and longevity.

We also carefully painted around the new pot lighting on the walls, blending it to the theme. Then, we finished up this hair salon renovation by replacing all of the salon’s equipment, exactly the way our interior painting team found it.

In the end, the new ceiling color, paired with the salon’s studio lighting, makes a great contrast to the refreshed orange shade of the salon’s walls. Instead of looking washed out, which happens with fluorescent lighting, the wall color is now vibrant and true to the color swatch.

Thanks to our commercial interior painting services, Soody’s Hair Studio now has a completely new space that matches their brand colors and feels inviting for the stylists and clients.

Transforming Your Vancouver Hair Salon with Interior Painting

Vancouver Commercial painters

When it comes to creating a welcoming and stylish atmosphere in your hair salon, the power of interior painting cannot be underestimated. Vancouver, a city known for its diverse and vibrant culture, is no exception when it comes to the demand for trendy and appealing hair salons. Whether you’re refreshing the look of your established salon or starting a new venture, a well-planned interior painting project can make a significant difference in the overall ambiance and success of your business. Selecting the perfect color palette is the first step in transforming your hair salon. 

Your choice of colors should reflect the identity and theme of your salon. Vancouver, with its stunning natural landscapes and modern urban areas, offers a wide range of color inspirations. For a chic and contemporary look, consider soft, muted tones such as pastel blues and greens combined with neutral colors like white and grey. These colors can create a serene atmosphere for your clients. If you want to infuse a bit of the city’s liveliness into your salon, vibrant colors such as deep reds, rich purples, and dynamic oranges can be used strategically for accents. Bold, high-contrast colors can make a statement and set your salon apart from the competition. To keep the design cohesive, make sure to consult with a professional interior painter in Vancouver, who can guide you on color choices that work well together and suit your salon’s unique style.

Embracing the Importance of Lighting

Proper lighting is essential in a hair salon, as it can greatly influence the mood and functionality of the space. Vancouver’s natural beauty is often characterized by diffused, soft light, making it an ideal source of inspiration for your salon’s lighting design. Large windows, if available, can be used to bring in natural light and create a welcoming and inviting ambiance.

For artificial lighting, consider using warm, energy-efficient LED lights. These can mimic the natural daylight of Vancouver, creating a warm and cozy atmosphere that enhances your clients’ overall experience. Properly placed lighting fixtures can also help to highlight specific areas like styling stations and product displays, ensuring your clients feel comfortable and pampered.

Creating Functional and Aesthetic Zones

A well-painted salon should be organized into functional zones that cater to different aspects of your business. In Vancouver, where space is often at a premium, optimizing the layout is essential. The color scheme you choose can be used to define these zones, creating a cohesive look throughout the salon.

For the cutting and styling areas, consider using calming colors that promote relaxation and focus. Soft tones like blues and greens can help clients unwind and enjoy their treatments. In contrast, the reception area should make a statement. Bold accent colors or eye-catching artwork can capture your clients’ attention and make a memorable first impression.

The Finishing Touches: Details Matter

Small details can make a big difference in the overall success of your interior painting project. Selecting high-quality paints that are easy to clean is crucial in a salon environment, where spills and splatters are inevitable. Matte or satin finishes are generally recommended as they can hide imperfections and provide a timeless look.

Incorporate branded elements like your salon’s logo and name into the design. This not only adds a professional touch but also helps build your brand identity. Unique decor items, such as local artwork or vintage mirrors, can add character and make your salon memorable to your clients.

In a city like Vancouver, where trends are ever-evolving, staying updated on the latest interior design ideas is essential. Continuously refreshing your salon’s interior can keep your business relevant and inviting, making it a go-to destination for clients looking for a stylish and relaxing experience.

In conclusion, interior painting can completely transform your hair salon in Vancouver, creating an inviting and stylish space that reflects the city’s diverse and dynamic culture. From selecting the right color palette to embracing proper lighting and creating functional zones, every aspect of your salon’s interior design plays a significant role in your clients’ overall experience. By investing in a professional interior painting project, you can ensure your hair salon stands out in this competitive market and captures the hearts of Vancouver’s trend-conscious clientele.
