Count on Curb Appeal
Address numbers do more than identify your house. They give the house personality, style, and, sometimes, a facelift. Classic, modern, country—no matter the style, there’s a set of numbers out there that fit. Beyond style, remember to think about size, color, and mounting options. And, of course, the street address should fit in an attractive spot and should be visible from the road. In the end, these little numbers add the final touch of character to the home’s facade.
