No Such Thing As A Space Too Small...


Reagan sends a word of encouragement to churches - anyone can have an amazing kids ministry space regardless of size.  Read the following excerpt from an article as published in Worship Facilities, Sep/Oct 2013.
Worlds of Wow, an Argyle, Texas-based design company that focuses on creating kids’ ministry spaces, is also a proponent of using color to help in tight spaces. Reagan Hiller, company president, draws on past experience in the amusement park industry and uses it to take children’s church d├ęcor to a new level. In counseling ministry leaders with a tight budget, Hiller says that it is imperative not to settle on boring—even though a space may be challenging.
“Do something, even if minor,” Hillier says. “Freshen up the space with a brand new color palette that is bright and open, making the space seem larger than it is.”
Hiller advises that the confines of small spaces make it imperative not to try to do too much. Along with that, removing clutter is essential, because cleaning up a space can actually make it seem bigger. He believes that any space, regardless of size, can create an engaging environment when it is used effectively.
“We want every church to have an inviting, effective kids’ ministry environment, no matter what type of space they have to work with,” he says.
“It's important to not overwhelm visually with too many items or too much density [in tight spaces]. We can often utilize the tighter space into a specific theme and turn it into a destination of the storyline.”
