What's It Worth? The Value Of Your House Name

House names can add value to your property for many reasons. A carefully placed beautiful house sign can do wonders for house sales as it adds curb appeal to your home.
House values have finally begun climbing again as new buyers are once again entering the housing market. If you are thinking of moving home this year or have just moved home it is important to understand the value of a house sign. Not only does a beautiful house sign make coming home joyful, it also adds value to your home.
Naming a home has always been known to add value, especially if the name has been carefully chosen and is in keeping with the style of house, cottage or barn. The Halifax building society made one of the largest logs of house names and found that certain areas of the country attracted certain names. Most house names are chosen to reflect something of the surroundings of the home. Take this beautiful cast aluminium plaque for example which was designed to reflect the environment that it was to be placed in, which was our clients private pool house in Thailand.
 
Popular names include, 'Orchard Cottage', 'Home Farm', and many names including the Oak Tree such as 'Oak Tree House', 'Oak Farm', Oak Fields and The Oaks. The Oak tree has always been a popular tree in English gardens and so manages to be in the house name of choice for many homes.
There are variations of house name between English, Scottish, and Welsh house names.
Many French home owners are now also placing name plaques on their homes having always named famous Chateaux.
This small delightful cast brass house name plate was created for a home in the Netherlands.
Cast house signs have stood the test of time in the hearts and minds of the British public as a good quality house sign choice that will weather extremely well. They represent good value for money and are easy to maintain requiring a simple wipe with a damp cloth in most instances.
Cast house signs can be made from cast iron, aluminium, brass and bronze, with each metal creating a fairly traditional appeal but with a different feel to each.
Polished aluminium can create a more modern look especially when combined with a sans serif font.
If a naming your home is just too daunting then a stylish number plaque is the next best option for adding value to your home. There are a number of options available for creating a bespoke number plaque which is unique to you and will make sure that your house stands out and has curb appeal.
Large numbers are often difficult to find when your home is set well back from the road and needs to be seen. This is important for many reasons, especially so that your home can be found by potential purchasers if you are selling your home.
It is also important that you are easily found for emergency services, parcel deliveries, and visitors. So make sure your home has the best sign available, with the most attractive finish and appealing name.
