More than interior design?
New interior refinements are lovely, attractive to visitors and usually a good investment. Yet, a twenty-first century preparation room..."that's where the money is," said a DST client. Another inquirer declared "...if the owner is not an embalmer, the prep room is the last room that gets any attention. They feel that if the public doesn't see it, it is of no value."
"Interestingly enough, we find that more and more our clients are promoting their embalming room, opening it to the public on tours or when working with families as a testimonial to their service," comments Duncan Todd.
How has your DST prep room increased safety, productivity, efficiency and comfort to boost the bottom line? Let us know in a short email, firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be entered in a drawing for a complete set of custom acrylic accessories for the prep or dressing room. Please reply by October 31, 2015.
