If a loved one has passed away in your family, and you are in charge of the funeral service arrangements, you want to make sure that everything has been planned down to the last detail. Many different things need to be taken into account during a funeral service, and a casket is an important aspect. There are different types of caskets to choose from, and you will also find that they come in a variety of materials and price ranges.

The funeral home would be able to provide you with information about the different materials, what the advantages and disadvantages are and the price range etc. Here are some things you need to take into account while choosing a casket:

  • The budget is a crucial factor to take into consideration. As mentioned earlier, there are different casket materials and finishes, which also means these products are available in a wide price range. It is best to set a budget first before you start discussing your requirements with the funeral director. A standard metal casket can cost approximately $1000; more elaborate ones can reach the $2500 to $ 3500 range.
     
  • You have to decide what material you want, and many people opt for either metal or wooden caskets. Even when you choose wood, there are varieties like aspen, pine, poplar, oak, walnut, mahogany or maple and more. Metal caskets could be made of bronze, copper, or stainless steel.
     
  • There are different types of interior materials such as crepe or velvet. The shell designs could have square or rounded corners, and the casket itself could be e elaborately designed with embellishments.
