Want to improve church appearance, but have a small budget? It is not a problem. It is possible to dramatically improve the appearance of a cathedral without undertaking any large scale project. Upgrading the facilities of church can improve its functionality in a modest way.
Church Renovation – Remodeling, & Restorations
- Creating Connection Space
Connection space is a modern buzzword in modern cathedrals. It is an open area where people can hang out after and before service. During church renovation, one can create a number of conversation venues formed with sitting areas, tables and coffee bars, giving the whole space a café like feel. A well organized connection space will create a lasting impression.
- Updating Sanctuary
Traditional pews are now being replaced by chairs in many places of worship. This creates more seating space than pews. Moreover, if the worship space does not have dedicated sanctuary, chairs give flexibility for configuration and room setup. Churches should make arrangement for storage of the chairs when they are not in use as well as durable flooring that can be easily cleaned.
- Prioritizing Children’s Space
Creating quality space for children and a nursery will reflect the value a church places on family. The kid’s space should have sufficient security measures and upgraded décor. This creates a welcoming ambiance which encourages parents to bring their children along to their place of worship. Many cathedrals have also installed electronic “check-in” mechanisms that improve both convenience and security.
- Exhibiting Signs
Signs attract visitors and are also essential to provide security and information. Newcomers find churches with proper signs are more welcoming and easily navigable. Designating exterior spaces with signs as well as ensuring that all rooms and spaces are properly labeled helps members both old and new.
Additionally, church renovation should also provide outdoor shelter for the guests and other visitors.
