4 Tips to Improve Your Home’s Exterior with an Address Sign
- 05 Mar, 2019
Are you building your own home in a modern architectural style? Maybe you’ve recently moved into a modern house with clean lines, large windows and open spaces. If you’re selling a house, don’t forget potential buyers make up their minds in the first 30 seconds as they approach the front door. Curb appeal has the biggest impact on your ability to negotiate a good price. Whatever the situation, your exterior decor conveys a message about your personality.
Choose the right address sign to fit your real estate style and convey your image in the neighbourhood. Think about these 4 simple tips to boost your curb appeal and give your home a beautiful, new look to match your style.
1. Enhance the modern style with an illuminated address sign
Modern outdoor home decor includes lots of warm lights, around the garden and garage, leading to the porch and front door. Why not go all the way with your warm light motif by including an illuminated address sign?
2. Should your address sign include the street name or just the number?
Depending on your location, you might choose to include both the number and street name on your address sign. Think about visitors trying to navigate to your house. They probably already know what street they’re on by the time they’re looking for your driveway. If that’s the case and you want to stay true to the modern concept that ‘less is more’, then keep it simple by including just the house number.
3. Illuminated address signs: White light or coloured?
Does your house adhere to a classic modern colour scheme? Most modern outdoor home decor incorporates muted colours with natural wood, steel, and glass. In this case, your address sign should reflect the simplicity of clear white illumination.
Not all modern houses have the characteristics of bold lines, steel and glass. Some of the latest trends, like the tiny house craze, use bright colours and lean toward fun and hip motifs. Maybe you don’t live in a tiny house, but if you’re into the more artistic colourful styles, try a bright blue, easy-to-see red or warm amber house number to complement your colour scheme.
4. Automate your illuminated address sign
What’s more modern than saving energy? A modern home should include a sign equipped with light sensors to automatically turn it on at sunset and off at sunrise. Then you’ll be doing your part to save energy. And when your house number is displayed with LED bulbs, it won’t burn out as fast as other bulbs. They’ll last for years so you won’t generate a lot of waste when creating a special effect for your outdoor home decor.
