The Importance of Customization in Columbarium Design

When you lose a loved one, you want to honor them in a way that their unique legacy is memorialized forever. As a final resting place for cremated remains, columbariums offer a unique opportunity to customize this remembrance. Columbarium Planners has been helping churches and cemeteries design these structures for the last 30 years, and we’ve set the standard for creating a sacred space that honors and protects those who have passed on. Let’s explore the importance of customization in columbarium design and how we can help you achieve that.

Columbarium Design and Customization

Celebrate Their Life

Every life deserves to be celebrated in a way that uniquely honors them. A columbarium can be an interactive place where you linger as you feel the sense of a continued bond with your loved one. We can incorporate beautiful gardens or other landscaping features that encourage prayer and meditation. The urns with the cremated remains are accessible in a columbarium, helping you feel a sense of closeness to your loved one as you continuously celebrate their life.

Preserve Their Memories 

As you ponder the design of the columbarium, consider creating an inviting space that encourages good memories to envelope you with each visit. Garden spaces with benches or labyrinths can provide an ideal atmosphere for rest and reflection. Memorial plaques can be personalized with scriptures, words, or motifs that you hold sacred and will always remind you of your loved one. It’s comforting to know their final resting place has been personalized.

Encourage Your Healing 

A columbarium is not a sad space but one that will cultivate peace. While there are different stages of grief, this customized final resting place can serve as one of the constants in your journey through each stage. The thoughtfully designed space will create a much-needed joyful environment that will comfort you as you heal.
