Design letterbox in line with the house facade

The mailbox can be a small but essential part of the appearance of the house. So you should carefully choose the box, the base and its shell. Ideally, the mailbox should seamlessly inscribe itself into the character of the house. In my opinion, it should best be a small projection of it.

I do not mean that he should look just like the house on a small scale, but that he would have to reflect the essence of the house. That could happen in terms of style, material or other characteristics. Look at the examples below as a miniature of the house.

Especially modern houses need something more than "off-the-shelf solutions". Here we see a two-family house in Australia, which include a Cor Ten stainless steel box. It also serves as a board with the address. It extends from the track on the left to this on the right. The shape of the mailbox and the beams over the sidewalk are a clear reflection of the building behind it.

The mailbox is a small item and as such does not have to be single. The locality is adapted to the needs of the people.
