There are many design elements for Houston Jewish monuments, making it easy to create a bespoke memorial for your loved one. If you’re not sure how to go about designing a headstone for your loved one, here are a few things to consider to help you get started.

Consider Granite Color and Finish for Headstones

We use granite for headstones because it is a beautiful and durable material. However, there are many ways to customize the granite for Houston Jewish headstones. Granite rock comes in many different colors from all over the world, allowing you to choose the color you think represents your loved one best. 

Also, we offer many different finish options for granite headstones. For instance, polished granite offers a high gloss look with mirror-like shine, while steel finished granite offers a more matte look. 

Sizes and Shapes of Houston Jewish Monuments

The size and shape of your loved one’s memorial also matters. In many cases your cemetery will have certain design standards for size and shape, so keep this in mind. However, there may be several different options to choose from even with these cemetery standards. For instance, you may be able to choose a square-shaped, rounded, ogee top, or even completely custom shape to commemorate your loved one’s life.

Other Considerations When Designing a Headstone for Your Loved One

While customizing and designing the right headstone for your loved one is important, there are other factors to consider as well. For example, choosing the right headstone company for the job. No matter how much effort you put into designing a headstone, low quality materials or craftsmanship may negatively affect your loved one’s memorial. Instead, it’s important to work with an experienced team to create Houston Jewish monuments, from design to manufacturing. 

Another important consideration while customizing a headstone for your loved one is Houston headstone cost. In many cases, you may have a certain amount set aside for the headstone. Because headstone design affects the costs involved, it’s also important to have a candid discussion with your headstone experts about pricing and your budget for the headstone. This can help you avoid stress later regarding finances. There are beautiful options in every price range to help you memorialize your loved ones.
