The modern church isn’t just a place to gather for worship, it’s also a community space used for life celebrations, meetings, and events. From weddings to youth dances, and everything in between, your church needs to be ready for whatever event is on the calendar.
The churches of old, outfitted with non-moveable wooden pews were used for specific and rigid purposes. Churches today have to be flexible in order to effectively serve the needs of their congregants. This means that your church needs to consider using chairs in the sanctuary, as well as having banquet chairs available for events.
Why banquet chairs? If you choose the right style for your needs, you’ll have a flexible chair that is perfect for hosting events and quickly cleaning up. Here are a few reasons to buy banquet chairs to have on hand for your church’s dynamic life.
The best part about quality banquet chairs is that they easily stack. This is essential when you have several dozen or even hundreds of chairs on hand for events. Make sure to create an out-of-the-way storage space for the chairs when they’re not in use. Also, invest in chair caddies that will move several chairs at a time in a back-saving way. Stackability ensures that you’re using your church’s space optimally, which is an important aspect of a good return on investment.
Well-made banquet chairs are created with a slim design in mind. They have a small footprint so you can fit more people into your venue. But don’t think that because they’re space-saving they’re also not comfortable. If you invest in the best quality chairs that you can afford, they will be of a slim design and extremely comfortable.
Have you ever been to an event and realized you had to sit on folding chairs for the duration of the experience? No one likes to sit on an awkward chair that strains their back. One look at that informal chair and you’ll have people wondering if they can cut the meeting short. When it comes to formal events, such as weddings, informal chairs just won’t cut it. Instead, choose premium banquet chairs that are padded and upholstered with colors that match the event and look luxurious. You’ll impress the attendees and they’ll take your church more seriously in return.
One could argue that the most important part of a chair is how it feels. When someone attends a meeting or event, they will likely be sitting in that chair for hours at a time. It needs to have the proper back support and the firm padding that will give the sitter the right kind of support for hours. Without this comfort, attendees won’t be able to concentrate and they might not stay as long. Elderly people are most sensitive to uncomfortable chairs, so it’s important to make sure they have what they need to enjoy your events.
While an aesthetic and comfortable chair is important to the success of your event, the durability of the chair is important to receiving your best return on investment. When you’re on a tight church budget, every dollar counts. Ensure that you choose chairs that are tested in the factory and made to last for years and through thousands of uses. Make sure that the frame is tested for safety and the fabric and padding are tested for longevity. Without quality testing and fabrics, you’ll have to reinvest in more chairs long before you’re willing. Save a headache by doing your research on durability testing before you buy!
Take the time to research banquet chairs before buying and make sure you get the highest quality that your budget will allow for. Choose chairs that are stackable and are made with a sleek design. Create a storage space just for those chairs and invest in chair caddies to haul them from event to storage. Take good care of your chairs and they will last for years. Pair your chairs with quality banquet tables for the best event setup.
