Curb Appeal is a huge buzz-word when it comes to one’s home. Usually, the elements that come to mind include landscaping, paint colors, and lighting. But don’t overlook the house numbers! Updating your house numbers can be a quick and easy way to boost your curb appeal in an instant.

Planter Plaque

One of the biggest trends in house numbers right now is that of a planter plaque. There are so many variations that you can easily find the right style for your home. Hang your house numbers vertically with the planter at the bottom. Or, have the planter be more of the focus with the house numbers in line next to it. You can fill your planter with seasonal flowers, vines, or even succulents. The options are endless.


Add a bit of a personal touch to your house numbers with a monogram. Take the first letter of your last name and layer with the house numbers on top. You can even incorporate your full last name if you wish. The personal touch will add character and charm to your home’s entrance.

Stainless Steel Screws or Nails

These house numbers are perfect for the builders of the family. And it’s very easy to make! All you need is a plank of wood and some stainless steel screws or nails. Trace an outline of your house numbers first, and then use the screws or nails to fill it all in. Simple and unique.

Modern and Stylish

Another one of the most popular themes in house numbers, this trend is sleek and stylish. It is seemingly a perfect combination of wood and metal. Create a long, vertically hanging plaque using strips of wood. Add the metal house numbers on top and hang near the front door or on a porch post.

Wooden Post with Hanging Basket

For a bit more of a warm, garden-home feel, consider this option. Place a wooden post by the walkway leading up to the door. Align your house numbers vertically down the post. Finish by adding a hanging basket with beautiful flowers.

Planter Box

Not much for the hanging baskets? Try a planter box instead. This planter can be perfectly placed near the home’s door or out by the sidewalk. Add some bright paint, beautiful flowers, sleek house numbers, and you’re good to go!

Paint on the Front Door

What better place to put your house numbers than directly on the front door? This current trend is both modern and classy at the same time. Make sure the paint color used for the numbers has a high contrast to the color of your door, so your house numbers are sure to stand out.

Matching Colors

We love painted front doors. If you don’t want to paint your house numbers directly on the door, consider painting them all the same color. This works best when the numbers are located near the door itself. Not only will the color draw people’s attention, but it will create an attractive cohesiveness to your home’s exterior. Hello, curb appeal!
