When considering displaying a loved one’s cremains in your home after their cremation service, you’ll want to look into selecting a proper urn ahead of time. There are many types of urns out there, so it’s important that you take the time to do proper research ahead of time. It is likely that the crematory or funeral home that you are working with will have a catalog of urn options for you to choose from if you so desire. While this may seem like the most sensible and convenient option, we urge you to explore other options as well! Thankfully, due to the internet, shopping for things like urns has become an absolute breeze. Not only are there endless amounts of urn sizes, materials, styles, and customizations online, but there is also the option to search specifically by price as well. In this way, shopping for your loved one’s urn has become much more convenient than searching through a printed catalog. When considering the type of urn to purchase for your loved one, it’s important to consider the type of maintenance that you prefer to have to maintain. What we mean by this is that if you are someone who prefers not to have to actively clean and maintain something within your home, then searching for a low-maintenance urn material and style may be in your best interest. Thankfully, with search engines such as Google, figuring out which urns require more maintenance than others is easier than ever before! Additionally, if you are someone who prefers to have items that hold a little more meaning, then you may be interested in creating a personalized urn online with inscriptions, engravings, photo engravings, quotes, and more!
Another important factor to consider when thinking about where to place your loved one’s urn within your home is the location. While you may be tempted to place the urn front and center for all to see, it’s a good idea to avoid spots that are easily within the vicinity of people’s elbows and arms. We say this to avoid any accidents in which the urn is accidentally knocked over and destroyed. We recommend choosing a space, such as a shelf, that is both high up and visible for all to see. In this way, your loved one’s memory will continue to live on for guests to admire. Additionally, you can also opt for placing the urn on a desk, table, or in a room if you’d like.
