Creative Mailboxes

A Landscaping Opportunity Beyond Your Porch

Creative mailboxes are not only fun and charming, but they can also be beautiful and unique. I am sometimes amazed at the decorative mailboxes I come across that tell much about the homeowner's personality.

While your front porch can add immense curb appeal to your home, your mailbox can add even more personality and warmth to your home.

Considering incorporating a unique and attractive mailbox into your front yard landscaping design.

Have you ever thought much about your mailbox? If your first thought was about that dreaded bill you're hoping never comes, that's not what we're meaning.

How does your mailbox look? Rusty? Dark? Does it just blend in and disappear?

If no one besides your mail delivery person has ever noticed your mailbox, in a good way of course, then it might be time to pay it a bit more attention. You may not know this, but mailboxes have evolved right along with the mail. And, there's no reason that you can't hop on board.

First, make sure that your mailbox is a true reflection of you. Just because something is snazzy, doesn't necessarily mean it belongs in your home.

Your mailbox doesn't necessarily have to be ornate, overwhelming, or over-the-top to be fun, funky, and friendly. You will get your mail whether your mailbox is dazzling or drab - but given the choice, why not dazzling?

So, play with color, coordinate with your home's accents and your current outdoor furniture, and give your mailbox the attention it deserves.
