After more research, I think I have narrowed my beauty therapy couch choices down to the following 3.

These are my requirements:
1. Must be static and have adjustable backrest. (Can't afford height
adjustable).
2. Chrome or white.
3. On a budget so really can't afford more than £150 - £170 max.
4. Needs to be fairly firm and steady as I do plan to do body therapy next
next year.

The couches are as follows:
1. J&S Hair & Beauty Supplies - Therapy Warwick Couch £159.99
2. Therapy 2000 - Warwick Exam Couch £159.99 (not 100% sure if the
same as the above couch?)
3. Salons Direct - Skin Mate beauty Couch £169 (my only reservation
with this is that the legs look like they may obstruct where the
therapist feet should be during a facial).

Your opinions please peeps especially if you have knowledge with any of these couches. Thanks xx

Not had experience of any of these couches Tracey but just one quick question - do you have the space for your couch to be a permanent fixture - I notice that none of these couches are portable so dont look they can be folded up when not used.

I didnt realise how much of a pain a couch can be when it is in the way all the time when you are trying to make room for everything else.

Mmmmmm, another very valid point hun.

I don't plan to be mobile which is why I have opted for static couches. I have been advised that the mobile ones cost more for the convenience of being mobile. I have also opted for static because I am worried that some of the mobile ones look a bit flimsy (please don't shoot me mobile therapists, I need your input too, lol) and I plan to eventually do massage, so I really need something hardy and robust IYKWIM.

The room for my planned salon is a large master bedroom.

i know a therapist who has the one thats in the large photo & she likes it & clients think its comfortable, i have a mobile one that i use which is a skin mates one which is height adjustable which i am glad about as i like it higher when im waxing than i do when im massaging, i rent a room & wont change the bed until i can get an electric couch as i like being able to change the height. dont know if this helps but its another thing to think about.

Do not get the first one !!!

The previous salon I rented in got this couch for me and although it looks lovely and is actually a great height for facials it is far to low for massage, I did one full body on it and never again I was in agony after, it is far to low for massage.

I have to say I don't like the look of the second one either, the legs look a bit odd ?!

Can't see picture of third one so can't comment on that, sorry !

Hi

I have the couch you have in your picture(the large pic in your thread) i find it excellent, sturdy and comfortable.

Also if you have limited space with a few nice storage baskets the rack underneath the couch is great product storage!

happy setting up !!:hug:

Can't see the last pic, but the first looks the sturdiest. Haven't actually seen any of these for real so can't be any more help.

I'm gonna be looking for a couch soon so interested to see the outcome of this.

Unfortunately, the height adjustable ones are out of my price range.

How tall are you Bombini? I thought it would be worth asking as you may be taller than me. I'm about 5ft 6 1/2.

Click on the link for the 3rd pic. I've just checked it again and the link is working for me so it may just be a blip yourside :hug:. Don't know how it appeared like that on my thread though because it should have appeared as a thumb nail. Sorry, lol. In all honesty, it looks very similar to the big pic.

It's funny you know because when I have massage done at my chiro's they actually lower the couch right down(much lower than I would when carrying out massage)

I asked about this and was told you can get a deeper pressure.

I agree with Juliette it's crucial to have the right height for your couch however I personally would love a height adjustable one so I could play around and just see what it would be like having the couch lower....probably kill my back and render me usless:lol:
