Light on Light Address Numbers

Address plaques don’t just have to be functional, they can be beautiful too!  One important element in adding your address identifying numbers to the front of your home is the proper color combination.  The key is to choose a color that contrasts the body color of your home but compliments the accent color of your home.

For example, the body of your house may be a light green color and your accent band may be a bronze.  You should add address numbers that have a dark color to them, or even paint them the same color as the accent band of the house.

A general rule of thumb is a light colored house should have dark numbers, a dark colored house should have light numbers and a bright colored house can go either way.  The most important item to consider is this – can my address be identified by a passerby?  Your color choice should make the numbers stand out from the house, not blend in.

Metropolis Iron offers a variety of address plaques in an array of colors and finishes.  If you don’t see what you are looking for on our website, please ask!  We love custom color orders and are here to help make your property look wonderful!
