We can include a street or building name around the numbers, creating a desirable look that will make your home stand out on a crowded street. However, adding additional street names and building names is not necessary, but it does look fantastic. House numbers can be palladium leaf or gold leaf, and they can be any size you like. Although five inches tall is our standard size for base pricing, we can make them more prominent, and it might cost a bit more as it will add considerable time to the job. Usually, you will want them to be at least four inches or taller so guests and visitors and see them easily from the street and sidewalk.
How do I make a simple house number?
First, you’ll need to choose a font for your simple house numbers. Any good serif font will do. Classic-looking fonts like Clarendon have ball terminals. For sure, ball terminal fonts are the most traditional as they would be easiest for the artist to render quickly with a brush. If you desire a more modern, contemporary look for your home, we offer many good sans serif fonts and art deco fonts. Perhaps the sand serif fonts would be the best way to create a simple house number for your home.
Where should I put my house number?
House numbers are typically above the front door centered on the glass transom, the small window over the door. It is best to place your house number in a well-lit and prominent area. Some homes have segmented transoms. Maybe your transom is arched with four sections? Some =”” span=””>rectangular transoms have multiple sections as well. Don’t worry. We have plenty of experience applying gold leaf numbers to atypical transoms. Just send us a photo of your transom and your <span< span=””> id=”urn:enhancement-5ec79940-77c2-4da3-b0f0-27a5cb302f15″ class=”textannotation disambiguated wl-thing” itemid=”http://data.wordlift.io/wl0724/entity/address”>address</span<>, and we’ll let you know if we can do it. Usually, we can find a way to make your home look excellent even if your transom is not typical. House number ideas are what we do for a living, so contact us today and let us make it happen@
How high should house numbers be mounted?
Generally, when we gild numbers onto your transom, you do not need to worry about how high they are. The transom is high above the <spa< span=””>n id=”urn:enhancement-f8231962-c841-434c-968e-e20193dfaec6″ class=”textannotation disambiguated wl-thing” itemid=”http://data.wordlift.io/wl0724/entity/door”>door</spa<>, so it is always visible from the street, even if someone is standing at your front door. Sometimes, we can create cast plaques for your house numbers too. In that case, we will install your house number plaques at eye level or above, on the handle side of your door. If you have a lamp on the front of your home, usually, we can center your plaque with the light so that it will look intentional. However, the best house number ideas are always gold leaf and palladium leaf. Indeed, if we gild your transom numbers the traditional way, you don’t even need to worry about how high the numbers should be.
