A good looking house number plaque that reflects your home and personality is a must-have buy (and it'll help the postman find you, too). We've gathered our favourites – they're ideal for the front door, the front wall or the front gate.
What to consider when buying a house number? Material: if your house number is exposed to the elements, a hardwearing, weather-resistant material is essential. Colour: if you're adding a new front door or painting your front door, for a smart look, match the colour to your house number plaque. And remember, the brighter the colour, the easier it'll be for friends to find your house. Style: ensure you choose a house number plaque which reflects the style of your home. A large black floating square may not be quite right on a country cottage...
