A stylish custom house sign can create an eye-catching effect for your home’s exterior.

House signs are used most commonly to show a house number or name, and can also be used to show different areas on larger properties.

The impression you choose to give is up to you – modern, creative, vintage… you can mix and match different mediums and fonts to get the perfect end result for your abode.

In this article we will be looking at six different types of house sign you can use as a base to work from – including some moodboards.


Slate house signs

Brickwork and slate signs go hand-in-hand – creating a mood that is natural and stylish, with vintage simplicity at its heart.

Slate house signs are great for a number of reasons, they are durable and long-lasting, as well as clear and easy to read.


Acrylic house signs

Acrylic gives you a wide range of colours and styles that you don’t get with other mediums. If you want to create something eye-popping or in a specific colour, acrylic could be the way to go. You could even create your own custom neon sign backed by acrylic in order to really make your house stand out at night.

Acrylic is one of the most popular choices for signs for both home and business due to its clean and modern look.

An aluminium sign can give your home-front a modern touch. Metallic signs can look expensive, so they can look just as great on older buildings as new ones.


Corian is a material used by architects, which is clear, easy to read, as well as being strong and durable.

Combined with precision cutting tools you can create an incredible house sign using Corian.
