Why Are All Salon Chairs Are Made of Vinyl
"Do you have leather upholstery available for salon chairs?"
We get this question a lot here at the Garfield - Factory Service Center. And we totally get why customers are making this request. After all, leather feels amazing and evokes a sense of quality and longevity, so why is it that nearly all salon chairs are made with vinyl upholstery. Both vinyl and leather have their own advantages and disadvantages when it comes to using them for salon chairs. However, there are some reasons why vinyl may be a better choice than leather for salon chairs.
Durability: Vinyl is more durable than leather and is less likely to crack or tear over time. This is especially important in a salon environment where chairs are used frequently and need to withstand constant wear and tear.
Ease of maintenance: Vinyl is easier to clean and maintain than leather. It can be easily wiped down with a damp cloth and does not require special care or cleaning products. Leather, on the other hand, requires more maintenance to keep it looking good.
Cost: Vinyl is generally less expensive than leather, making it a more cost-effective choice for salon owners who are on a tight budget.
Eco-friendly: Vinyl is a synthetic material and can be made from recycled materials, making it a more eco-friendly option than leather which is made from animal hides.
Overall, while leather can be a good choice for salon chairs, vinyl is overwhelmingly the chosen fabric for its durability, ease of maintenance, cost-effectiveness, and eco-friendliness.
