Let’s be honest here… I think we can all agree on one thing: church furniture can sometimes be downright uncomfortable. This can be seen in the number of people squirming and shifting in their seats during each service. Purchasing better church furniture can not only give your sanctuary and other buildings a more appealing appearance, it can also be beneficial for your members and congregation.
Church furniture is one of those items that most people will only buy once in their lifetime — if ever. For this reason, there seems to be a great deal of mystery surrounding the industry and how to purchase it. Having helped countless churches design a furniture layout that will breathe new life into their congregation, we’ve put together this short list of things you might want to consider before you make this important purchase.
Let’s take a look at some of the things you will want to consider when purchasing your church furniture.
Do you prefer composite construction, or solid wood?
Each material has its strengths and weaknesses, and there is no “right” material for everyone. We would be happy to talk with you and tell you more about both, and answer any questions you may have about which would be best for you. Often times, this decision comes down to the type of look you are trying to accomplish, as well as your furniture budget.
How many people can we fit into our sanctuary?
Think about the typical size of your congregation and the size of your sanctuary. You will also want to allow for some growing room, as well. You want to be sure that you have enough seating for everyone, and also some room for new members. We can talk with you about seating options that will be sufficient for your entire congregation. You’ll also want to consider the floorplan and whether or not pews or chairs would give you the most seating space.
Price. Another factor that you will want to consider is how much you want to spend on your church furniture. We can work with you and show you a variety of options that will all fit within your budget, and we pride ourselves on offering our clients the best possible prices. We will always work to stay within your budgetary constraints.
What purpose will your new furniture be serving?
Do you need new pews for sanctuary seating? Do you need portable folding chair, or maybe even stackable chairs? What about tables? We offer a wide range of furniture options to fit all of your needs. We also offer collapsible stages and risers, for your choir’s performances.
What are the colors of your sanctuary?
Color can play a large role in the ambiance and overall feeling of your church. Are you looking for something more subdued, or do you want to create a lively space full of color and excitement? Are you looking for more traditional earth tone colors or vibrant pops of color?
