But, first, let’s chat about some of the decisions you’ll need to make, and factors you’ll need to consider when buying a set of new house numbers.

Important questions to consider when buying house numbers

What is the home’s style?

Take design cues from the style of your home’s exterior.

  • Is it a home with simple lines, such as a Craftsman or Mid-Century? If so, consider house numbers that are clean-lined, simple sans-serif fonts.
  • Is it a home with intricate details, such as a Victorian? If so, consider more decorative house numbers, such as those that feature a serif font.
  • Is it a home with traditional details, such as a Colonial, Cottage, or Cape Cod? If so, these transitional style homes will work with well with both simple and decorative fonts.

Don’t limit yourself by the style of your home. It should only be a guide. In other words, if you love modern details, but live in a traditional home, you can still go modern. Just be intentional. For example, try modern house numbers, modern door hardware, and modern planters to transform your front entry to a Modern and Traditional mix.

What is the home’s color palette?

Take color cues from the home’s exterior.

  • Light and bright color palette? Try dark house numbers for contrast, such as Oil Rubbed Bronze, Matte Black, and Cast Iron.
  • Moody and dark color palette? Try light metals which will pop against the dark exterior, such as Brushed Nickel, Stainless Steel, and Glossy White.

Again, these aren’t hard and fast rules. House numbers don’t have to pop against the exterior, they just need to be visible from the street. If you love dark metals and have a deep exterior color palette, dark hardware will simply echo the moodiness of the home’s style.

What hardware is used at the front entry?

Take a cue from other hardware at your front entry. Consider the finish of the…

  • door handle
  • kick plate
  • porch lights
  • and mailbox

Of course, depending on the size of your renovation, you may be replacing all of these metal finishes. But, if not, choose house numbers that will either match or complement the existing hardware.

Tips & Tricks for buying house numbers

 On which exterior material will the house numbers be hung?

Will the house numbers be hung on the door, siding, brick, or trim?

  • If siding, is it wood or vinyl?
  • If the door, is it steel, fiberglass, or wood?

Make sure to check the product description to find out how to hang the house numbers, and ensure it will work with your material.

How much space is available for the house numbers?

My design motto is bigger is better, ha! Well, not always, but large house numbers do pack a design punch. Larger sizes will stand out, catch your eye, and increase curb appeal.

However, make sure to test the size of the house numbers before purchasing.

  • Draw the numbers on paper to size, based on the product description.
  • Then, tape it to your home’s exterior.
  • Look at it from the porch and from the curb to determine if the house numbers are too small, too large, or just right.
