Aug 8, 2008
A necessity for every church is obviously the furniture. In this ever-evolving time, church furniture has also undergone various changes, from being extremely simple to being artistic and with some designs. Now church furnishings are available in a number of styles and shapes at competitive prices and especially furnishings screens are made available in the market in a variety of styles and designs. You can go in for some theme like Gothic, medieval, contemporary or traditional and find suitable church furnishings for the same.

The main criteria for shopping will obviously be the budget and also the requirements of the church being established. To fit your budget you can also go in for used furnishings. Again the next question that will arise is that, all said and done, where exactly do you go looking for in church furnishings? The first place that comes to one's mind when anything is to be bought is the Internet. Everything is now made available to us over the Internet. Another place where you are sure to be able to buy church furnishings is any old church that is on the verge of closing down. They will also be on the lookout for someone to sell their furniture to. Traditional churches have traditionally styled furnishings, which will include cushion seats, wooden pews, as well as kneeler's. But on the other hand modern churches will have individual chairs forming a row. So you can always select the furnishings, which will fit into your theme.

This will be cost-efficient and the furnishings can always be given a new look by spending a little extra on remodeling. Most of the churches, which are closing down, will be selling their furniture in bulk. 9'6". 12' 3/8' long pews for $125 each. Similar bargains can also be found on the Internet. Buying used furniture and remodeling it will be light on the pocket and will thus be also useful in saving some of the congregation money too.

Internet can also be a very effective for finding appropriate church furnishing and will also give you a lot of good bargains. Just searching the web for the words "church furnishings" will come up with around 8,780,000 web pages most of which will be online stores. You can order all the necessary furniture and have it shipped to you. Second-hand or used furniture can also be bought over the Internet. Here is an example of the prices on a website to help you get an estimate; used 9' long pews are available for $80 each and 17' long pews for $100 each. Some online stores also offer packages and not just individual pieces of furniture. So you can save time, and buy an entire package consisting of pews, a pulpit and even bookracks and flower stands.

There are some websites that also offer you new furniture in exchange for old at a discount rate. Some websites also offer you customization of the furniture so you can choose the fabrics or material to be used for the furniture and give your church the look and the feel you desire. This can also be done along with keeping in mind the religious inclination of the community. You can have the furniture of your choice of dimensions, size and also color. Some providers may give you a discount for buying your furnishings online. A minimum-shipping amount will be charged depending on the size and dimensions of the item as also the location. All in all you choose the type of furnishings you desire will all your discretion.

Again chairs are a very important part even in church furnishings. Old or new, multi-colored wooden or cushioned etc. kind of chairs are available. There are stores specializing in all these various aspects as to whether you need theater-style chairs to fit in a larger number of people for worship, or specially designed pews for congregations. There are stores that specialize with just the buying of chairs in bulk.

But finally all this depends on you and your budget. While you can give the top most priority to the budget, or to the style or to the time required for the furniture to be shipped to you or all of this together. You can always choose the necessary pieces of furniture first and then buy the rest over time.
