One of the easiest ways to increase curb appeal for your home is to get creative with your house numbers. Whether you want to go for a modern or traditional look, there are a ton of different ways to make your house numbers pop. To get you’ve started, the folks at Angi have outlined their favorite house number ideas below.
Add a Splash of Color
Most of the time you see house numbers in black. While there’s nothing wrong with going that classic route, choosing a vibrant color instead can help your house numbers stand out. You might even want to take a look at color wheels online to see which colors would best compliment your home.
Get Your Address Engraved
One of the coolest ways to make your house numbers stand out is to get them engraved. This works best for metal and wood surfaces. If you choose to engrave your numbers in wood, it will give your home a historic, elegant flair.
Add Your Last Name
It makes for a cute addition when you display your family name below your house number. If you want to do so, make sure that your name matches the font of the numbers to keep a uniform look. Overall, this addition will make your home more welcoming.
Decorate Your Mailbox
A timeless way to show off your house numbers is to display them on your mailbox. Either apply decals directly to your mailbox or attach a plaque to display your numbers.
DIY House Number Stencils
One great way to up your curb appeal is to use DIY house number stencils. All you need is some paint and something to cut out the stencils with and your house is going to look more charming in no time.
To get started, print out our house number stencils. Use a craft knife to cut along the dotted lines. Tape the stencils to your door, a sign, or any other appropriate surface that you think would work. Finally, paint over your stencils and you’re ready to go!
If you want to add more decoration, we’ve got you covered. Choose from the decorative stencil designs above for a unique, elaborate border for your house numbers.
Additionally, you may also want to revamp your welcome mat using the same DIY method. All you need is a blank coir mat, some outdoor acrylic paint, and a sponge brush.
Print out one of the stencils below and line them up properly with your mat. Cut out the letters along the dotted lines with a paper cutting knife, and paint over the stencil with your acrylic paint. After that, just let the paint dry and you have a brand new DIY welcome mat!
