Are you interested in installing some illuminated address numbers on your home? It can easily be done without the help of a professional. Here are a few important things that you should think about before doing so:


Obviously, you want your illuminated address numbers to be easily visible from the road so that visitors can find your place when arriving at night. However, you likely do not want strangers to be able to easily note your address as they drive around your neighborhood in the dark of night. If your address numbers are prominently displayed on the front of your home, they will catch the eyes of anyone who drives by for whatever reason.

Therefore, it is a good idea to place your illuminated house address numbers in an inconspicuous place where they will not draw attention from all passersby. In the corner of your porch near the front door, on the bottom corner of your garage door, or even on a plaque in the garden are all spaces where your visitors can find your address, but others likely will not notice them. Though they will be illuminated, you could also let your visitors know where to look to find the address.

Home Damage

Installing illuminated address numbers on your home can be a project if you ever decide to take the numbers off and put them somewhere else in the future. Therefore, it is a good idea to consider installing the numbers on a plaque that requires just one nail or screw to secure on your home. Using a plaque or wooden board will do less damage to your home yet still allow you to display your illuminated house address numbers where you wish without having to worry about potential damage.


Another thing to think about when installing illuminated address numbers anywhere on your home is accessibility. If the numbers are placed too low, they could be damaged by children or pets. Likewise, if they are placed too high, it can be inconvenient to maintain them and they may end up becoming neglected and ruined. Consider placing the numbers as high as you can comfortably reach. This will keep kids away and ensure that you can easily maintain them when necessary without having to pull out a ladder or reach too high up.
