hello to you all! iam about to open a salon and iam confused of how to set up my spaxe in order to be able to move around easy.i was thinking to get a spa chair but then i changed my mind.i now want to build something like this http://www.yelp.com/biz_photos/serene-ha...C89ykecYKw
i would like to ask if you can help me about the measurements and the height of the pedicure stool .also one think that came in mind is the sink and the water temperature.i know that spa chairs have hydromassage and can keep the water warm but what about the sinks?what do you do in that case?just put more warm water when its called or are there any sinks especially designed to keep the water warm?are there any sinks that offer hydromassage?any help would be really appreciated!
no one has anything to suggest?any opinios?
If you are having a bench custom built, I would look at a few pedispa chairs and check out their dimensions and go off of those. You can pull down installation diagrams that will show all of the measurements exactly. There are also companies that make pedi benches so you could copy those as well.

No idea on sink warmth - but any insulated sink will likely provide better warmth than using a bowl by itself. Copper bowls seems to be a trend right now, and I just don't find they hold heat very well at all. Five minutes into the pedi you're feet are cold!

There are several companies that build the bench seating. They run a bit more than a mid-range pedichair.

I do dry pedicure in a facial chair in my private suite. .
i foulnd some stones that say they keep the water warn during the pedicure and they are especially for pedi sinks.anyone know s somthing like that?seems interesting!

Where did you order the stones? Would love to get some.
I recommend not soaking at all; pedicures done with client seated in a leather recliner.
We have sinks. More sanitary IMO
The sink itself is a good idea. The set up pictured is beautiful to look at, but I've never known a client or tech to love this set up. In my expirience clients prefer being able to adjust and recline their seats as well as slide forward and backwards from the sink. Swivel is a DEFINATE plus for elderly or disabled clients.
Hello, please check out Contego Spa chairs - they have a patented design that is new.
