There are lots of different ways to create a sign for your house, and your beach home. Think about materials that complement the style of your house. You might choose a traditional slate for example, or rustic house sign that speaks to the location. The best house sign will be one that depicts the character of your home, is robust and strong, and easy to fit.


If you’re wondering how to attach a house sign to a wall, here are some general instructions (they may need adapting depending on the sign type)

  1. Decide on a location on the wall of your house.
  2. Mark the drill holes
  3. Drill the holes usually with a 7mm drill bit
  4. Fill with the correct raw plugs
  5. Screw your sign into place!


House signs need to be seen from the road, or the end of the garden path so need to be big enough to be visible from this distance. Generally we’d remind you that 20mm letters can be seen from a distance of 10 metres. Bigger is better but this will depend on the size of your property.

So now you have plenty of inspiration to choose a name for your summer home by the beach, we hope you have fun choosing.
