When you go to a spa, you would expect to enter a place that brings to life the ideals of serenity, tranquility, peace, relaxation and rejuvenation. You would see bamboo shoots, hot rocks, massage tables, hot oil and many other such items that would bring a feeling of relaxation to you. The attendants would treat you and wait on you hand and foot to give you a royal experience like never before.

However, service and items are only one part of the equation. Your decor has to match what you are trying to sell. The environment affects the people in it as well. Unless you have decor that matches the idea of a spa and your brand, your customers may not always leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Do you feel that you have a problem with your spa’s decor? Don’t stress! You can upgrade your spa’s decor with these 9 brilliant hacks. Scroll down to check them out!

Colour Scheming
Colour plays a huge role in establishing the ambiance of a place. For a spa, it would be best to avoid insanely bright colors. The best colors to use would be slightly dark shades of green, white, or brown; colors that represent the earth and bring in a sense of-of cool and calmness. If you use a combination of these colors as your color scheme, you can rest assured that your customers are going to appreciate the ambiance a lot.

Lighting
Having a massage in a spa with insanely bright lights or in a pitch black room is not most people’s idea of relaxing. The lighting in your spa also accentuates the ambiance just as much as the color scheme does. You would want to go for lighting that is bright enough for your customers to read but just dark enough for them to be relaxed. Once you have the right amount of lighting, your customers can enjoy their service a whole lot more.

Art
It’s not a bad idea to have art in your spa, but it is a bad idea to have art that might offend or be out of place with your spa’s brand image. You may like a particular piece of artwork but your clients might say otherwise. So, to be on the safe side, go for artwork that is not risque but more conservative or abstract. Be sure that the artwork you plan on installing matches your decor or you could receive negative feedback about that as well.

Plants
Plants are a vital part of your decor and a great way to bring in a natural aspect to your spa. Whether they are real or fake does not matter much but what kind they are and how you use them does. Fake ones are advised though because they are easy to maintain and have a strong resemblance to the real ones. Silk ferns, faux floral arrangements, artificial bonsai trees and a boxwood topiary or two would really help in enhancing your spa’s decor for customers. Be sure to keep at least one plant in each room to add a nice touch of nature to your spa.

Scents
Scents can definitely help in upgrading your spa’s ambiance. Your customers would love to enjoy a place that appeases not just their visual perceptions, but also their other sensory perceptions as well. Try not to use scents that are overpowering or overwhelming. Some customers would have a problem with the strength of the scent. Instead, try to use a scent that is light and refreshing. With a pleasant odor to add to your ambiance, your customers can truly feel relaxed and rejuvenated.

Furniture
The furniture of the spa also needs to be in sync with the brand image of the spa. Get furniture that is not cheap. Cheap furniture wears out a lot of fasters and many of your customers will be able to tell. High-quality furniture with designs that suit the aesthetic of your spa would be perfect. Pay extra attention to the comfort levels of your customers by checking how comfortable the furniture is to use. Cushions would add to the comfort aspect as well so be sure to get plenty of those to go with your furniture.

Avoid Cluttering
Having a space that looks too small can be bad for business. Go for a minimalistic approach that makes space look big by having small amounts of items placed in certain areas of the room. Your clients will get a better feel of the ambiance by having a small lamp or a Buddha in the corner with the rest of the space free from other items that might make it look cluttered.

Ventilation
Ventilation is extremely necessary when it comes to your spa’s business. Your customers cannot have a wonderful experience when every room feels like a sauna. Having good air conditioners is a must with a ceiling fan just in case the AC makes them feel too cold. Keep the ACs at a temperature where customers won’t feel too cold but just enough to make them relax and enjoy the experience you wish to give them.

Music
If anything can help enhance your spa’s ambiance, it will be music. Don’t use club music or anything that’s too upbeat. Slow, instrumental tracks can set the mood right for a sauna or a message. Slow jazz or music from the Far East is perfect to set the mood for your customers. These types of music can actually help them relax and give in to the wonderful treatments that you have in store for them.

These 9 hacks will help bring out the beauty of your spa and guarantee your customers an experience that is worth their money. Be sure to research more on what exactly you would utilize from all the above and how you can combine them to make your spa more unique. With a bit of research and implementation of your plans, your spa will experience a boom in a business like never before.
