After recently reading posts on the modular walls that were featured at the Vegas trade show, it got me thinking if this is something I should be looking into instead of regular wall buildout for my expansion...
I would like opinions on both sides with this....BTW..for those of you that posted websites of these walls, thanks!

If you have the extra money it the best way to go. They are just room partitions - they also add a nice design element to the salon.

I prefer STRUCTURES, but if you want a well-built, nice looking wall that cost less, look here. These folks can get them sipped in 3 days, and depending where you are, could have them installed.

I think they are slick looking. Modular will keep your salon looking brand new for years and years to come. You can change your salon and move walls in the future easily...you can lease walls..you can depreciate them over 7 years instead of 29.5 years...your price will be a little bit lower from your electrician...

I love my eurowalls. They are very classy and well worth the money. I did a build out in my first salon and it just seems so tacky now. I saw other walls in vegas but the eurowalls were by far the nicest.

Here's a very inexpensive route ... if you don't need outlets! 2x4x8, paneling & insulation for sound. It's quick, inexpensive & not bad to look at either. Going 8 foot high makes it easy since the panels come in 8 foot sheets and going 8 foot leaves room for the heat to rise out of the room w/o customers worrying about peepers looking over the top. Just a thought! Oh and if you do need outlets ... thats easy to tie in. Good luck!

The only down side to modular systems is the huge expense and inability to change the "look" of the decor over time. All in all, I think modular is the smart move for in the long term, although you might be cash poor in the short term for it. Good luck.

Yes, I think when I checked into modular walls it was very expensive, isnt it? Was a few years ago. I think they look nice and are especially good if you are thinking about moving to another location. Could someone give me an average price for say, one 8 or ten foot wall?

I went with Eurowalls for a 9 rm salon it was about $1600 per room with a custom floor plan, rooms avg size 8'x 9', also did an upgraded pkg that came with decorative door toppers and a nice shelf w/hook for each room. In my area the cost for traditional buildout was high and very unreliable contractors. I would say the most expensive part of my EW decision was the reception desk and display an extra $14K BUT IT LOOKS GREAT! and it sets me apart from all other salons in area because the next EW salon is about 120miles away.

Oh my! I cant afford that. But thanks for confirming it. I paid my contractor 800 dollars for building 5 rooms. He did everything put the painting. I paid for the materials. But the mods do look nice.
