If you’re in a church frequently for whatever reason, you probably walk over the church’s entrance mat without giving them too much thought. But there are numerous benefits to church mats, especially when they’re branded, so there’s more to investing in them than merely having somewhere for worshippers and other visitors to wipe their feet. In fact, church mats serve a number of other purposes.
Here at UK Mats, we’re one of the UK’s biggest manufacturers of floor mats including entrance matting and we work with many different churches and cathedrals in London and across the UK to provide stylish yet practical and heard-wearing church entrance mats, most of which carry the church or place of worship’s branding and logo.
Benefits Of Church Logo Mats
Investing in church mats, especially if you choose logo mats, brings your church or other place of worship, and its visitors, a number of benefits. Here are some of them:
#1 Help with enhancing health and safety and reducing trips and slips
Floor mats can help make your church a safer place to be for all concerned. Durable, rubber-backed church mats stay firmly in place, significantly reducing the risk of slip-and-trip accidents. If you happen to have an elderly congregation, for example, this could be especially important.
#2 Help to create a lasting, memorable impression
As with any other setting, entrance mats in churches contribute subtly to the overall impression someone has of your venue. Assuming your church entrance matting is of high quality, it can help form a lasting first impression so that people remember your place of worship and their visit for all the right reasons.
#3 Giving your church and its members a sense of belonging and identity
Branded church mats can make a firm contribution to a feeling of belonging amongst visitors and members, whilst helping to give them a sense of identity. Anyone who visits your church will be reminded of its name and logo.
#4 Extending a warm welcome to anyone who visits
Especially if someone is visiting for the first time, you will want to make them feel welcome. Branded church mats can do just that with a logo in your church’s colours and even a welcome message. And if you have a lot of stone flooring, entrance mats can literally make a venue feel warmer.
#5 Helping to trap dirt and water
A high-quality entrance mat is not just a pretty face. It can also serve various other functions. Perhaps the most important of these is the trapping of the dirt and water which is inevitably brought in on people’s shoes. Not only does this help to keep the church floor consistently spick and span, but you save on wider cleaning bills. What’s more, of course, a clean floor is also part of the overall impression your members and other visitors have of the church.
#6 Lifting your church’s reputation
Branded church matting gives a professional, smart appearance which can do more than you may have realised to boost the overall reputation of a place of worship. Clearly, for that to remain the case, you’ll need to look after your church floor mats, and clean and replace them at regular intervals.
#7 An indirect boost to donations
Many churches rely heavily on voluntary donations such as the weekly collection plate. If the building looks smart and professional, as mentioned, that becomes part of the overall impression a visitor has of the place. So, indirectly and subtly, church floor mats can have an impact on how much and how often people feel they want to donate to church funds. Again, this is all part of reputation, and the impression your church conveys.
