When a guest is looking for your home, what is the first thing they’ll notice? They’re looking for your house numbers. Such an important part of your home’s exterior shouldn’t be ignored or bashfully hidden away. In fact, special house numbers are a great curb appeal boost and make your home more inviting. Updating them may be the simplest and most efficient way to do so.

Before you replace your house numbers, there are two very important factors to keep in mind:

  1. Your house numbers should be easily visible from the street. It seems like a no-brainer but how many times have you found yourself frantically driving up and down a friend's block because you can't find their number? Don't be that friend. Easy-to-find numbers are also a security concern for any emergency vehicles, so make them clear.

  2. Your house numbers should match the style of your home’s exterior. Clashing numbers are more likely to hurt your curb appeal than boost it. Before you decide on a style, consider very carefully if it will enhance your home's exterior or degrade it.

Luckily, there’s a large enough variety of options available, so you’ll be able to match your house’s exterior style. You can even choose how you’d like the numbers to be displayed. Some can be bought as individual numbers or as custom-made plaques. Regardless of the material, you’ll be able to find it. There are wood, metal, ceramic and bronze numbers available. And it doesn’t stop there. Whatever color you want, you’ll be able to find it! If you’re a more crafty person, it’s fairly simple to turn your house numbers into a DIY project using decorative tools and numbers from your local craft store.

Turning it into a DIY project is a way to cut costs on your house numbers, but it’s not the only way. You’ll more than likely be able to install them on your own with just a screwdriver so there’s no need to hire outside help. Replacing your house numbers can be a very cost-efficient way to spruce up your house’s exterior and accentuate your siding.
