Sacred Design


Specializing in Church Restoration, Renovation, and Liturgical Design

At Sacred Design, we approach our projects with an understanding that each church has its own unique identity and personality. Our goal is to bring out the beauty of the architecture and one-of-a-kind detail that your church holds. We strive to represent liturgical elements that are aesthetically pleasing and theologically appropriate.

We are a joint venture and have assembled a team of professional consultants, clergy, artists, faux technicians, gold guilders and master wood carvers. This team concept enables us to create unique and cost effective solutions for each project.

Our trained tile artisans do complex inlay, floor medallions and patterning. Due to the large volume of tile we purchase, we are able to buy direct from wholesalers. We purchase liturgical lighting direct from fabricators. This results in significant cost savings for our clients.

While cost is important so are aesthetics and quality materials. We have the capability of buying tile and marble from Italy, Brazil and Spain. Our gold leaf is purchased from sources in Italy, France and Germany. commissions old masters quality murals and portraits from a world-class artist. We also purchase murals directly from Italy that are installed by our trained artisans.

Good communication is a priority and we work with parish clergy and building committees in an effort to educate parishioners about their specific project. This helps ease apprehension and misunderstanding. Our process starts with showing concept boards that include all key aspects of the proposed design. Discussions continue from there until we reach an acceptable approach to the renovation. We make every effort to preserve memorials donated by individuals and families.

Char and Jean Kriz, owners of Sacred Design have over 40 years experience in interior design and building construction. This experience and expertise combined with our team of artisans results in the highest quality work and often eliminates the need for high cost architects and consultants. We strive to create breathtaking transformations of truly beautiful churches, a vision of Heaven on Earth.
