#1 Black and White Barber Shop Corner

You can opt for a minimalist modern appeal with black and white hues.

Divide the barber shop space into two sections – one for the clients to wait / reception and the second the actual functional barber shop.

Paint the background white to give a neat and decluttered appeal. Huge mirrors with wooden work and comfortable beige chairs complete the look.

You can put shelves near the chairs for the barbers to access their toolkit and store them back neatly.


#2 Wood Paneled Barber Shop Interiors

Give your barber shop a rustic and wooden appeal with wood panels decorating a larger part of the barber shop.

Make cubicles with wooden partitions, and each cubicle holds no more than two comfortable leather chairs with square mirrors in front.

Use brick wallpapers for the background wall, and hang well-lit lamps above the leather chairs for impeccable detailing.

Decor the empty walls with wood-framed wall art and put up shelves to hold barber shop tools.

#3 DIY PVC Barber Pole Lights

Sand and spray paint a PVC pipe with multiple coats. Use a masking take to draw patterns and spray the empty spaces. Remove the masking tape.

Give the colored PVC pipe a base and a globe or a lamp shade on top, with electrical wire running through it.

This is best suited outdoors.

#4 Old School Chair and Cupboard Barber Salon

Remember the kind of salons our grandfathers used to frequent in the past?

The kind which had a local flavor and was welcoming to everyone in the town. The kind where men could spend hours catching up on politics and sports.

Bring back the old school barber salon feel with a simple chair and cupboard setup that is higher on utility than fancy.

Dark wallpapers with wooden cupboards and a comfortable chair are all you need to complete the look.

Put up dim lighting and keep a lot of magazines and newspapers on the side.

#5 Panoramic Barber Shop Decor

If your barber shop is high up and right in the middle of a busy business center, the panoramic minimalist modern decor would suit the overall sensibility.

Complement the glass walls on the two sides of the barber shop studio with a white or grey color for a serious and formal demeanor.

In-set lighting on the ceilings and tall mirrors with white leather chairs complete the look.

The flooring should be of concrete. Add a splash of red color (such as red tables or a red sofa at the reception) to signify power and authority.

#6 Vintage Effects for Times Gone By

Moving to a completely different era, there’s something special about a throw-back design and where people (mostly men) went for shaves and haircuts.

This sign does the trick, even if you’re just decorating your home with old time barber decor.

#7 Modern and Retro Barber Shop

A modern yet retro barber shop looks fantastic for the suburbs! It creates a welcoming, warm, and comfortable presence for the barber shop patrons.

Divide the barber shop floor into various stations. Line up the leather chairs with footrest neatly in an L-shaped or reverse L-shaped layout. Place separate tool kits in front of the seating arrangements.

Give the walls a dash of white, light green or blue, and gray colors for a chic pastel retro outlook.

Such an arrangement encourages easy conversations with the patrons and creates a friendly-vibe, which you definitely need to receive profitable business. Isn’t it so?

#8 Barber Shop and Beauty Salon Combo Decor

How would you modify the decor if your studio is both a barber shop and a beauty salon?

The ideal combination of male and female energy vibes is hard to replicate. While one wants a serious and formal decor, the other wants a colorful and jazzy decor.

One way to solve this is to create a partition, signifying the barber shop and beauty salon aspect, with some common elements like the hair wash basin or the hair cutting area.

Invest in ample overhead lighting; you can use a dual-mirror setup to compensate for lack of space.

Add small and medium planters, and install wall-mounted colored shelves to store tools and gear.

#9 Textured Wooden Barber Shop Decor

Amplify the class and appeal of the barber shop decor by adding textured and accented wooden panels at the workstation.

Wall length textured panels function as partitions, and mirror embedded wooden frames give the setup masculine energy.

Abstract wooden panels make for an accented wall decor idea for the background. Pure white leather chairs in front complete the look.

#10 White Minimalist Clinical Barber Shop Decor

If you want to give the barber shop a minimalist clinical appeal, glasses will play the central role.

The barber shop room should be painted white with tall glasses adorning the walls. The barber shop chairs should have steel finishing with leather seating.
