If your house number plaque is going directly onto medium to dark colored brick (or masonry wall) then try to pick a plaque with a light colored border. By picking opposite shades you will display the most visibility and the plaque as a whole. The above examples of the brown, blue and red borders are beautiful but too close to the brown therefore most of the designs are not really noticeable.
Look at the plain border to the left, It appears more visible because of the opposite shade. This house number plaque still shows all colors of the rainbow picking up flower colors or trim colors you might have around your home. This house sign also acts as a great starting point to add trim to your home (ex, red door, red and yellow flowers etc)
Light colored stucco
For light to medium colored stucco (or masonry wall) - This is a great shade. You can pick any border other than plain (top left). Not to say that the plain border is the wrong choice, it's just not as exciting and does not scream, "HERE I AM! FIND ME!".
The above blue and red border along with the wine color on the left appear very daring and striking therefore visible. Think of the amazing landscaping you can add to your home with any of these combinations.
Medium to dark colored Shingles
Grey Shingles are very popular. This color is so neutral it's the perfect blank canvas. By itself it tends to be sad looking but by adding a hint of color here and there the look is very exciting.
The above examples shows how any color house number plaque complements this Grey to a beautiful level. You’ll be able to forward these colors and others to your trim, door, mailbox, and landscape for a happy and welcoming curb appeal.
