Is your family going to bury a loved one following their upcoming funeral services at one of the funeral homes in Carmel, IN? If that's your plan, you will need to pick out a casket for them at some point. Before doing so, you should take the time to learn more about the best types of caskets on the market today. It'll help you narrow down your search for a casket so much faster. Check out several of the best kinds of caskets available at funeral homes below. 


Wood caskets are some of the most popular caskets around in this day and age. You can pick out everything from very basic wood caskets without any frills to hardwood caskets that are made out of cheer, mahogany, and more. The price that you'll be asked to pay for wood caskets will vary depending on the type of wood used to make them and the overall design of a casket. This is likely where you'll want to start when you’re considering which casket to buy for a loved one. 


Although wood caskets have always been some of the best caskets available, metal caskets have also turned into a great option for families over the years. Bronze caskets and copper caskets, in particular, have risen in popularity. Both of these kinds of caskets look amazing and are also known for their durability. They're rust-resistant, so you won't have to worry about them falling apart anytime soon once they're buried in the ground. There are also stainless steel caskets that offer many of the benefits of bronze and copper ones at just a fraction of the price. 


For families that want to keep the environment in mind when burying a loved one, so-called green caskets might be the best option. These kinds of caskets are constructed out of materials that are 100 percent biodegradable. They will begin to break down as soon as they're buried in the ground so they won't have much of an impact on the planet. Green caskets are still on the newer side so you won't always be able to find wealth of options when you're looking around for one. But there are more and more green caskets beginning to pop up all the time.
