  • Walls in Grooming Salon

    Hello! I am so glad that I have found this site again, now that I am getting ready to open my own grooming business after working for someone else for the past 11 years We are just building and getting ready to start on the walls. Does anyone have any suggestions as far as walls that may be waterproof? I want something that will look professional, yet stand up to the water that may get on the walls. I am doing concrete floors with a drain in the middle so that the water will drain if I need to spray my floors down, so I would like to have walls that can stand to get wet also. Thanks so much for any suggestions!

    Ceramic tiles (which can be costly depending on budget), or bathroom backsplashes. You an get all diiferent colors and designs & your local Lowes or Home Depot should have rhem in stock. Congrats on the new shop!

      Ceramic tiles would look the nicest, yet that could be costly. I am sure you can find a paint on product and would ask a paint store specialist. I have seen these large sheets of plastic board something material and you screw them into the wall. Inexpensive but really not attractive and if you don't seal where sheets meet, it goes yucky and mold. I have seen groomers do this and in a couple years look cheap and ugly if not cared for. Much easier to wipe down tiles.

        Glass board is cheap, holds up and easy to clean - also at any of the big box home improvement stores.

          My shop is small, just for me. I have FRP (fiberglass reinforced panels) surrounding my tub...still look like the day we installed them 10 yrs ago. I spray them down with the tub hose. Next to my tub is painted wood (flat latex) that gets wet daily. The best clean-up for the painted wood is my steam cleaner...obviously, not as simple as hitting it with a hose!

              On a different bent if you ever need divider walls for other parts of the business, we use cage banks for that instead of building walls which is a leasehold improvement for the landlord. The cage bank is mine and solves the expense of adding walls to someone's else building.

                    While you are at it you might want to study some products to help reduce noise in your walls, or on.

                      FRP is popular as Tom mentioned but I have seen water seepage in the seams and eventually some crud might appear. Be sure to find a way behind the seam on the wall or sealing the seam some solution to stop that.
