As we wrap up our series of posts on successful interior church design, we have one final tip to share and a question to address. First, the tip.

Don’t Overlook Maintenance

Maintenance might not immediately spring to mind when discussing an interior church design, but it is very important, nonetheless. Your church building is not just a space; it’s an investment. Proper maintenance ensures that your investment retains its value and appeal over time. Consider your flooring and other finishes—they need care to stay pristine. Arrange to implement a maintenance plan from the outset.

Review the care instructions and other documents that accompanied flooring, wall coverings, furniture, and other elements in your church building alongside those charged with caring for them. Ensure everyone knows their responsibilities, especially in the absence of a dedicated custodial staff. Documenting these maintenance protocols is crucial for the long-term upkeep of your space and is ultimately a testament to good stewardship.

Getting Questions Answered

Our i3 webinars not only are a great way to educate yourself about church design, but they also provide the opportunity to ask questions of our church building experts. There was an excellent question asked during our successful interior design session that is definitely worth sharing: why do we recommend minimal decor in restrooms?

There are several reasons behind this recommendation. Firstly, excessive decor or clutter in restrooms necessitates more frequent and thorough cleaning and care, which can be resource intensive. Moreover, the layout and design of every space within your church should prioritize accessibility for all individuals. Consider those using wheelchairs or walkers—they require sufficient space to navigate comfortably. Likewise, parents with young children may need extra room for assistance with diaper changes or bathroom trips. By keeping restroom decor minimal, you ensure that these spaces remain accessible and functional for individuals of all ages and abilities.
