As we say au revoir to 2022, we welcome 2023 with the excitement and expectation of bright new ideas and forward-focused thinking. But to predict what salon and spa interior design styles will be trending, we need to reflect a bit on the year we’re leaving behind. 2022 has been a year marked with inflation and financial concerns, but at the same time, it ushered in an inclusive mindset open to more personalities and cultural influences.

In terms of style and attitude, “The Bohemian” made its mark, influencing everything from philosophy to fashion and interior design. There is real movement in living and loving the planet. As a society, we will continue to embrace behaviors such as consignment shopping, antiquing and working with natural materials. Mixing organic patterns with ethnic motifs and textures lays out a style board that honors the Boho while moving us into the future.

How does all this translate into interior spaces? Continue reading to see what our friends at Minerva Beauty predict for 2023 interior design trends, and gain inspiration on these must-have styles to implement in your salon or spa!

Mighty Moments

Salons and spas can make a big design impact in 2023, even with a tight budget, by creating small areas with dramatic touches. A captivating nook that evokes a moment of magic not only serves as an interesting background for a Zoom meeting, but it also provides picture-worthy spaces clients want to capture in their own social media. These whimsical spaces infuse joy into the greater world when clients effortlessly promote and market your business. To create these Insta-ready moments in a space,  a gravitation toward the opposite—the dark and sophisticated—can create an attention-grabbing effect that clients can’t help but say “Wow!”

Tiled Textures

Textured tile provides practical but beautiful opportunities in the shampoo areas. Being both durable and super cleanable, tile is beneficial for every salon or spa environment. With TEXTURE being introduced into your interior design, a new layer of interest is created in the salon through color moving with the play of light.

Incorporating tile into a feature wall or branding moment is easy. For instance, take a look at the beautiful whimsical pink tile that dresses up the plain white wall in the shampoo area below.

All About the Curves

This past year has seen the ease that is brought through curves and organic forms in a space. Arches are a classic and orderly way to grace salon interiors, and it is an upcoming design trend to look forward to in 2023. Arches can be used in opening between rooms throughout the salon, as displays that showcase retail products, or painted on the wall to frame a shampoo system, color processing area, or a stylist’s workstation.

Arches gracefully embrace rounded forms and go back to an old-world order. Warming up interiors with Rattan softens any durable and hard surface zones. Both Arches and Rattan play int the popular Boho attitude and style which continues to be chic and trendy in the upcoming year.
