Some different styles of house number plaques include rectangular, square, round and novelty. They are also available as lawn or garden plaques or as pieces that may be mounted on a fence or home. Decorative themes are often used, such as nautical, floral and more formal classic styles. Lighted and reflective house number plaques are also offered.
Rectangular, square and round plaques are some of the most versatile, both in style and how they may be mounted. They can be as simple as basic numbers against a contrasting background, or as formal as a scripted font for numbers as well as the street name. The rectangular options may be mounted on the property fence or building, or staked on a bit of lawn. Many of these plaques offer reflective or lighted options.
Novelty plaques, which may include the floral, nautical and high-end designs, sometimes have sculptured edges. One example is a wall house number plaque with a gently arched outline. Another uses fancy scroll-work at the top and bottom. Novelty signs also include hand-painted options, such as numbers surrounded by a floral scene, or hand carved animals as a decorative accent. Horses, bears, cats, fish and birds are some of the most common choices.
