Go with the Modern Youth Room Look

I cannot actually remember being in this youth room and I’m not sure how these pics got onto my hard drive. My best guess is that this is from MSide Youth, but don’t quote me on that. There are a few elements to this modern youth room look that are totally worth noting.

Traditional Band Stage. What this stage highlights is that 1. you do not need a lot of height for staging if you are an a limited space, ceiling height wise 2. clean is the way to go. So often we can get these spaces cluttered, clean space is good space.

This room has the modern ‘steel / chrome’ look going for it. What is cool here is that they have modern furniture that fits the room. The lamps, chairs, tables, maybe not the shag area rug.. The wall hangings with the youth ministry t-shirts is always a good idea. Designed seating areas is also a key. If you do not have spaces that are designed for a purpose then expect your young people to move things around to create whatever is natural.

You can also see that they’ve removed their drop ceiling tiles and painted the ceiling framework black, as well they probably did some sound spray/foam within the ceiling. At least that is what it looks like. If you do this just know that you will need to re-arrange your sprinklers to spray up due to fire codes. It is a manageable process, but will certainly cost.

This is rather eye catching as a food service bar that has a fountain soda machine. Those are not hard or terribly expensive, but they do have a lot of bits and pieces. If you sold sodas from this you can actually make some pretty good money as a fundraiser this way.

What is interesting is the fusion of the corrugated metal that you see in many places. It gives a good effect for the cost. That does seem to be a granite counter top they have used to match the metal. Cool idea, maybe a bit more expensive than most can spend, but as with any remodel project, figure out what is the thing you want to spend money on and make it pop.

I’m not sure what the red circles on the wall are, but my first impression was that they were frisbee’s with the ministries logo on them.. Upon further review I don’t believe that to be the case, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea. Something you might see on HGTV.

    Where’d u get the red chairs?

  2. Just ran across this site. This is a room I designed in 2008 for Morningside Baptist Church. I used to serve at their youth pastor. I’d be happy to answer any questions. It was a small space and we tried to make the most out of it with a small budget. We spent less that 20K, but that included lighting and sound. Most of the design elements were rather inexpensive. and…yes those are our students ministry frisbees… The grey chairs and blue tables wear already owned so we were trying to use them in the space. The metal on the upper bar area is roofing flashing. (pretty cheap – spray glued to the wall).
