One simple method of dignifying an interior at the minimal of cost is to remove undifferentiated fitted carpets that cover entire sanctuaries and often congregational spaces too.

Fitted carpets, when used in this way, I think, are intended to cancel out distinctions of function and degrees of sanctity. It has the same effect as where the altar is on the same level as the sanctuary sans footpace.

Introducing a fine loose carpet to dignify the altar itself might be a means to point to the idea of the orientation of worship and the pre-eminent dignity of the altar.
