Best Places To Put Your House Numbers For Quicker Delivery

Where should a house number be located on your house? Considering how important a home’s external appearance is, it makes sense that everybody might have a different answer to this question. We will go through the best solutions!

We understand that every home is unique and different and your house numbers should be as well. If you've just moved into a new neighbourhood, check with your homeowner's association to find out how the other houses in the area have their numbers displayed.

Here's a rule of thumb to follow. The Metal House Number should be able to be seen from the street or sidewalk outside your home. If you decide it's better to place them on the curb, make sure they're visible from both sides so people approaching your home from either direction can see them clearly.


Here is a few examples of good locations!


The Classic

Placing your house number next to the door is the most common space for modern house numbers and is easily noticed by delivery drivers. It loses originality points but works very well if there are no obstacles in the way.
