In late 2015 through early 2016, Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory engaged nationally-branded interior designer Carol Kemery and her Mechanicsburg-based business, Caromal Colours, for a complete remodel of our location –transforming traditional, dated rooms into a timeless, inviting, comforting, and elegant facility.
To convey the caring personality and culture of our business, we realized over the past few years that our facilities needed a complete change.
Moving away from a traditional funeral home look and feel and choosing a welcoming, elegant, and warm atmosphere focused on the grieving family was no small feat. Carol Kemery’s history of achieving tasteful, functional atmospheres and ambiances were key components. All of our facilities are fully accessible and we have covered ramps to ensure everyone feels welcome in our facility.
The new look and feel of our facilities builds on Buhrig’s long-standing historical presence in downtown Mechanicsburg, while also employing modern colors and décor to provide calming warmth. From overstuffed, comfortable chairs for the bereaved to special ways to showcase mementos, and private restrooms and lounges for guest to gather their thoughts, no detail was overlooked. In every corner of our building, we convey that dignity is paramount and comfort is central.
