Displaying An Urn At Home After Cremation Services
There are lots of options as to what you can do with a loved one’s remains after cremation services in Daytona Beach, FL and if you have decided to display them in your home, it’s nice to know they are close. If you move, you can take them with you and you never leave them behind. But you will want to think about how you display their remains within your home so it is safe, honorable, and nice for everyone in the family. Here are some things to think through.
Your Home’s Style
You want the urn you choose for your loved one to be a nice tribute to them, but since it will be in your home, you will also want it to fit into your home’s style. Not everyone who comes into your home may be comfortable with the idea of an urn sitting in a certain location. If it fits in well, not everyone will even notice. Have it go along with your home’s colors and style so it is a fitting tribute while being something that sits into the home well.
It will be of utmost concern to make sure that your loved one’s remains are safe. That means if you have any pets or children around, the urn should be kept up high where they can’t get to it and knock it over. You also want to make sure the urn is one that has a lid that can’t easily be lifted. Perhaps get an urn that isn’t breakable as well in case it is knocked over. You want your loved one’s resting place to be nearby, but you also want them to remain safe and undisturbed in their urn.
Consider The Location With Care
You want to keep your loved one close. What does that mean to you? Do you want to place them in the china hutch in the living room so they are part of every movie night? Do you want them on the fireplace mantel so they are with you every time you are warming yourself by the fire? Or would you like to have them as less of a centerpiece and more of a background? You can place them in the guest bedroom where they always slept when they visited or in your home office so they are with you, but not in view of others who visit your house. Think about what you want, and what your loved one would most appreciate.
