Select an Urn 

When deciding how to display a loved one’s cremains in your home, the first thing that you’ll want to do is to select an urn ahead of time. While you may not initially give much thought to the idea of picking a specific urn, we recommend taking your time with the process. Truthfully, there are so many different types of urns to choose from, so it’s important that you take your time when choosing a specific style and material. If you decide on buying an urn in person from your funeral home, then it is likely that they will provide you with a catalog of options. If, however, you’d like something more specific, then we recommend looking online at other options. Going online to look for an urn is recommended as you then have the ability to filter your searches based on unique features such as material, style, size, and more! Additionally, if you are someone who is a fan of customization, then going online will also give you the freedom to engrave the urn with a quote, scripture, poem, words, or picture if you so choose! Additionally, different materials of urns will also determine what the maintenance of it will look like over time. If, for example, you are someone who doesn’t enjoy having to clean often, then you may opt for an urn material that is low maintenance when compared to others.

Another big decision to make when deciding how to display a loved one’s cremains within your home is to choose a proper location. We recommend picking a spot that is out of reach from people’s elbows and arms. Doing so will ensure that you will avoid any unforeseen accidents when having guests over at your house. Additionally, it could be a good idea to choose a spot within your home that is both high up and out of reach and visible to guests as well. Ensuring that your loved one’s urn is visible to guests is a great way to keep your loved one’s memory alive while also ensure that their remains are in a safe location as well. If, however, you’d like to have your urn in a spot that you spend a lot of time in, then choosing locations such as tables, desks, shelves, windowsills, and more could also be a meaningful choice to go with. The decision is completely up to you so we recommend surveying your home for the best possible location!
