Your mailbox is often one of the first things that people come across when visiting your home. Whether you've invited some important guests over, or a courier is delivering some mail, it's nice to have our homes looking as beautiful as possible. With a sturdy iron mailbox post, you can enhance not only the practicality of your property but also the appearance. Here are some of the main types of mailbox posts and the different factors you should consider when purchasing one.
Watch the weather
One of the first things which people need to consider when buying this item is the local weather conditions. Some parts of the country will benefit from better weather than others, so this should be reflected in any items you keep outside your house. If the weather is generally rainy and windy, you should look at cast iron or even steel posts which will be able to withstand any torrential weather.
Keep it modern
The styles of mailboxes can vary a lot, meaning you can choose a traditional style or opt for a more contemporary look. This will depend on the overall layout and design of your property, as selecting the wrong design can look out of place. For gardens with plenty of flowers and plants, choose a plain mailbox post which will prevent your property exterior looking too 'busy'. If you have a plain garden or yard, look at more ornate posts which will add to the character of your home.
Flexibility is important too
Consider the fact that you may want to change your mailbox post in the future, and if you often like to switch up the look of your home, you may find this happening all too often. Buying a post which is suitable to paint means that you can always alter the color when you wish. You can choose to change the color drastically or have something bright and bold, or simply alter it slightly with neutral shades, such as navy blue, black, grey, dark green and brown.
Look for something customizable
You should be able to get your house number put on the mailbox quite easily, but there are options for items which are even more customizable than this. For example, some mailbox posts will allow you to alter their height, making it suitable for any garden and any resident to access. Particularly useful for those with mobility issues, being able to customize your whole property, mailbox included, can make such a difference.
Check the locks
A cheap purchase could mean that you are left with locks that don't quite work properly. Whether this is a stiff keyhole or a damaged part that prevents the mailbox working property, problems with locks are never good when you want to keep an area secure. You'll find a variety of lock types available, such as padlocks and mortice locks. The one you choose will partly come down to preference but should also take into consideration the practicalities of where you live and how secure you need your mailbox to be.
