STEP 5 - Cost And Budget
HOW MUCH SHOULD THIS ALL COST?
Salon Interiors will essentially design your new spa for free. A small design deposit will be applied to your order for furniture and equipment that we specify in our proposal. If you will need a set of prints signed and sealed by a registered architect, be prepared to invest in a fee that could be substantial depending upon the size and scope of the project.
Construction costs could range quite widely from $100- $250 per square foot or more, plus the cost of equipment, furniture, and accessories. The final project cost will depend entirely upon what you decide you want for your Spa. The selection of construction materials, architectural details, quality of furniture, equipment and fixtures, and other factors will greatly influence the final numbers. Obviously, the cost of using imported marble tile will be greater than using vinyl tile on the floor. Simple fluorescent lighting will cost less than imported high fashion lights.
The cost of your furnishings will also greatly depend on your decisions regarding style, materials, and details.
Styling stations may range from $150- $1 ,500.
Desks may be purchased for as little as $700 but increase in per foot cost as details are added.
Custom Cabinets may cost from $150 to $800 or more per foot depending on the details and materials specified.
Equipment costs can vary greatly depending upon the quality and features desired.
You can purchase a simple foot bath for as little as $40 or you could decide that you need a top-of-the-line whirlpool pedicure spa for as much as $5,000.
Hydraulic styling chairs can range from $200 to $1200.
Facial Beds can cost anywhere from $450 to as much as $4,000 or $5,000.
ALL OF YOUR DECISIONS SHOULD BE MADE BY CAREFULLY DEVELOPING A REALISTIC AND PRACTICAL BUDGET.
Try to remember GOOD PLANNING USUALLY MEANS FEWER SURPRISES.
Be sure to DEVELOP A GOOD BUDGET AND REASONABLE TIME-LINE
Try to stick very close to both.
