The Best Places to Shop for House Numbers
In case you're looking for a few more options or are interested in doing a little extra digging, we've rounded up our favorite places to shop for modern house numbers. These four retailers can jump-start your hunt!
Whether you're looking for furniture or outdoor finishings, West Elm is a one-stop shop for modern decor. When it comes to house numbers, we love that the retailer's selection isn't limited to just the numbers themselves, with options that bundle mailboxes and planters.
While it might take you a minute to sort through all of Wayfair's offerings, once you do (or perhaps if you do) you'll find a huge assortment of reasonably priced, quality pieces. With retailers as large as Wayfair, filters are your best friend. We recommend filtering by price, preferred installation type, and rating, including only the items with a four-star or higher rating.
If you can think it, there's likely someone on Etsy who can design it. Because Etsy homes so many independent artists, it's a great source for those looking for the pieces no one else has or those with a specific design already in mind.
Though Rejuvenation might not have quite the selection mega-retailers like Wayfair and Etsy have, we do believe that their curated selection of house numbers is unbeatable. Here, you'll find sophisticated fonts paired with the sleekest materials and finishes.
