Make neighbors envious of your address with these clever solutions.
Do you suffer from a forgettable address?
The problem may not be your home’s location, but those humdrum numerals that confirm it — digits vanilla enough to make your mail carrier wince. Fortunately, it’s easy to change up the count.
Here are a few ideas to improve your house’s figures courtesy of virtual neighbors:
1. Put your roots down
You spruce up your landscape with plants, so why not liven your home address the same way? Go terra cotta or vintage (above) with this idea.
Put your numbers on flower pots or another planter to grow your prospects of making your address stand out.
Here’s how to check this off the “Bucket List” by Wonderfully Made.
2. Post modern numbers
Try an avant-garde address to update the house. Go sleek, stylish and spare without looking too Spartan by mounting these trim, brushed nickel digits.

3. Hang in there
A holiday wreath isn’t the only thing you can affix to your front door. Why not display your numbers front and center, descended from the top of your slammer to welcome guests?
Get cleverly crafty with this approach implemented by Love and Life at Leadora.
4. Frame it
Make your count stand out like you would a memorable photo by showcasing your house numbers in a customized frame.
Use the same color that makes your home’s exterior pop, or try a complementary hue that makes a statement all its own.

5. Feature address art
Embed your digits in a work of creativity befitting your personal taste.
Not the next Picasso, or even a paint by the numbers DIYer type? That’s OK, you can commission your numerical artistry.
