What’s Your Number?

By Linsibrownson @CleverSpark

Regardless of design, location or style, there’s at least one essential thing that all homes have in common: address numbers. (And mailboxes, but that’s for another post…)

Often overlooked as a purely utilitarian feature of residential design, house numbers can be utilized as exterior detailing that not only defines location, but reflects the aesthetics of the inhabitants while creating interest and visual appeal.

So, for your Tuesday morning, a few fun finds to add a bit of design to your entry, while directing guests in the right direction…

These are just a few, and the options for house number signage are great and diverse enough to fit any style, budget and application. Integrate them into a low wall, light them from below, create a custom planter- the opportunities for creativity are infinite, so use your numbers to keep things interesting and inviting…

Because, after all, no matter how beautifully designed and well-appointed one’s house may be, it can’t be appreciated if it can’t be found!
