Altar Shrine Carpet Renovation: Before and After Installation
Catholic Church is one of the most prestigious structures ever built. It has different basics, tradition and rules to follow. Only few architects are lucky enough to have opportunities to design churches these days. But when it comes to designing a church the objective doesn’t end in creating a beautiful and magnificent design instead the main purpose is how to affect the human person deeply, the way he acts, feels and the way he is. The church of every country is grand whether small or large that represents the house of God that looks to the past, serves the present and informs the future. It’s a sacred place to be used for worshiping God that welcomes everyone.
The focal point of the interior design of the church is always the altar shrine. Every part of the church has a symbolic meaning and purpose, although they may have some different types of architectural styles such as Gothic, Victorian, traditional and modern, particular foundations and elements are always present in all Catholic churches. The church’s altar shrine is the center of the sanctuary that’s usually built with natural stone, marble or tiles. In entering a church, this is the first thing that will get your eyes attention because it’s in the front center of the church probably the most noticeable and the grandest.
The altar shrine is an important symbolic central point of worship. An altar was placed where God and the human world can interact and a way of exchanging communication that influence the people. It’s one of most sacred part of the church and has a big influence to all. Keeping it tacked and presentable is a must, not only for beautifying the church interior design but also it helps to evoke the feelings of devotion, transcendence, and prayers of the people. Even the slightest detail can make a change in creating a prefect altar shrine like the best flooring choice.
Observe the 1st picture from the 2nd and 3rd photos and compared how a simple carpet can make a huge difference. As you can see all the carpets are same colored red, but the second and third looks way more lively, dominant and influential. Color is always been influential that affect the atmosphere of any room and red is a very strong color that draws the eyes. As you can see when a red carpet that has more vibrant color is installed in an altar shrine it became grander, noticeable and moving.
Using a carpet for the altar shrine flooring is not something surprising; in fact it’s one of the most consistent things you usually see in a church. Even though there are lots of different flooring that can be used in an altar shrine, carpet is the most beneficial and striking. Carpet is more comfortable and luxurious both in appearance and feel. Carpets also help to give more emphasis on the entire appearance of the altar which is the focal point of the church. The often subtle and muted tones of the church building need to be considered and strong color should only be used in significant places such as the altar carpet floor.
