How To Choose The Right Mailbox Style For Your Home

Choosing a mailbox may seem like an unimportant part of home design, but the mailbox you choose can have a noticeable impact on the façade of our home. Picking a mailbox that is out of sync with the rest of your design may stick out like a sore thumb and not be very attractive in general.

Let’s take a look at some tips for choosing the right mailbox for your home, so you have an easier time.

Post mounted

A mailbox that is post mounted is the most common type you will find. Most of the time, you can buy them in a set that comes with both the post and the mailbox attached to the top of it. This is a classic option and can be an unassuming choice that is functional and won’t get too much notice, positive or negative. However, there are some more sophisticated designs when it comes to post mounted mailboxes that you may want to consider looking at.


As the name implies, a wall-mounted mailbox is attached to the exterior wall of your home. A benefit of this is that it can be tied in more closely with the aesthetic you are going for, but a disadvantage is that postmen will need to come deeper into your property to place mail in it, which may not be ideal.


A built-in mailbox is a very popular option in recent years since it blends more seamlessly with the home design. Some of the best examples of built-in mailboxes are when they are included as a part of the front garden wall, with bricks surrounding it. This gives a seamless look that is very attractive and blends in perfectly with your front garden set up.
