A Unique Funeral Service

Earlier this year, a close friend of mine passed away. This sweet woman was incredibly unique. Besides adoring vintage clothing, she always had extremely short hair. After her death, her son wanted to plan a funeral service with her unique style in mind. So, he immediately started working with the helpful staff at a respected funeral home in our hometown. After relaying his desires to the professional employees at the funeral home, my friend’s son decided to omit a viewing on the night before the funeral. Instead, he had the funeral home staff bring his mother’s body to the church two hours before the funeral service. He also gave anyone who wanted to speak at the funeral service an opportunity. On this blog, I hope you will discover the wonderful ways the staff at a funeral home can help you plan a unique funeral for a loved one.

How To Make Your Funeral Home More Inviting And Attract Families


People often choose a funeral home because of location, a previous relationship with family and off a recommendation from a reliable source. If you are in the burial business, then you want to make your company is attractive to potential customers. However, the décor and design of your funeral home can affect the experience of your guests.

The appearance of your business could be keeping you from reaching the next level. Read on to find out how to make your funeral home more inviting.

Allow For Personalization

A place seems inviting when seeing a bit of you in your surroundings. You can incorporate this idea into the services offered by your business. For example, you can leave the walls blank in your chapel and allow your clients to decorate with their own decorations. It makes the service more meaningful for the family. You can also remove the decorations at the end of the service.

Add Some Natural Beauty

Funeral homes are usually covered with flowers during a service. However, you should add flowers to the rest of your building. The plants can be big and small. For example, you can put a fern at the entrance of the building and an aloe plant at a desk. Plants also bring life into a room and help with reducing stress.

Provide A Place Of Serenity

The wake is a reality shock that your loved one is no longer here. At that moment, it is hard to take everything in. It helps to provide a place of serenity. This location can be a patio or cremation garden. A cremation garden is a portion of land set aside for the scattering of remains. You can add a walking path, flowers, fountains and a pond to the garden. Regardless, your guests will feel good about having somewhere to go to get some alone time.  

Fill The Atmosphere With Relaxing Sounds

The sounds of waterfalls, rain and ocean waves are relaxing. You can put a small water fountain in the sitting area of your funeral home. Families will appreciate a peaceful environment while grieving.

When a loved one dies, families have to carry out multiple steps to take care of remains and to commemorate the person in a respectful manner. These reasons are why the funeral business is so valuable. Families have the opportunity to work with a team of professionals who will guide them through this challenging phase of life.
