If you are going to be place your home up on the market for sale, consider performing some basic improvements to the exterior of your home. Small changes can make a big difference to the curb appeal of your home.
Many people will improve landscaping (i.e. adding flowers, sculpting the hedges), however very few people think to change the house number plates.
Changing your house number sign is a low cost project, but can greatly change the mood and look of your home from the outside. If your house was built in the 70’s or 80’s it may look outdated compared to the surrounding homes in your neighborhood. House number plaques can be great way to make a fast improvement.
There are many different materials and styles for your house address sign choices. Aluminum and brushed stainless steel are very common for modern contemporary homes. Rustic homes may choose signs made from materials such as carved wood.
Changing your house number plaques can also be a great way to increase safety of your home as well. If you are living in an area which does not have a lot of light, consider purchasing illuminated house light numbers.
If you want to provide stronger lighting, you can also use landscape lighting to focus on your home numbers as well. Studies have proven that additional light can be a great way to deter crime, theft, and vandalism to your property.
When you are choosing a design for your house numeral plaque, you may also want to consider a larger size. Your existing sign may be hard to see from the road, and this would be a great time to improve visibility from the road.
By making your house numbers an inch or two taller, people will be able to see your house from a greater distance. This can be helpful for people who are not familiar with wear you live. When you are placing your home for sale, you can expect to have a large number of visitors looking for your house number plates. This small improvement can make life a lot easier for people who are trying to locate your residence.
