When ordering furniture for your church, you need to consider the classrooms and fellowship rooms as well as the main sanctuary. While the sanctuary is usually furnished with wooden pews or steel frame chairs, plastic furniture may be ideal for other rooms in the church.
Here are some of the features that make plastic furniture a good option for church events and other activities.
Plastic furniture is incredibly versatile and it goes with a variety of décor. Tables and chairs can be dressed up for a formal event, or left plain for everyday use.
Plastic tables and chairs are also easy to rearrange for a multipurpose space. Easily transform a children’s classroom into an adult Bible study space, or go from a casual fellowship meal to a formal banquet fundraiser.
Plastic furniture is usually affordable. You can buy it in bulk for a large room or facility and easily stay within your budget. You can also afford to replace a few pieces if something cracks or breaks.
Portable and Lightweight
Perhaps the biggest advantage of plastic furniture is that it’s lightweight and very portable. If you’re furnishing a rented or multipurpose space, you can easily set up and then store the furniture when it’s not in use. Plastic furniture may be especially desirable for a church plant that needs to constantly move the furniture in and out of a rented space or member’s home.
Suitable for Indoor or Outdoor Use
Most plastic furniture is fairly weather-proof. You can set it up outside and leave it there, rain or shine. This is great for church festivals, picnics, and other outdoor events. You can also move the furniture between indoor and outdoor events so that you won’t have to purchase two different sets of furniture, and this can save your church a lot of money.
Easy to Maintain
Plastic is very easy to clean and maintain. Simply wipe down the surface with some disinfectant wipes or soap and water. You can easily clean up food and drink spills, crayon marks, and other messes. Some tables even come with lightly textured surfaces that are smooth enough to write on but protect against scratches. This will ensure you get to keep your furniture for years of use.
Where to Find Quality Plastic Furniture
Most church supply stores carry plastic folding tables and chairs. You should speak to a sales representative about your church’s needs. He or she will be able to help you pick out the right dimensions for the tables and chairs.
