Are You Looking For A Decorative Mailbox?

Are you lucky enough to still have your mail delivered to your home? If so, count your blessings that you don't have to pick your mail up at a drab communal mailbox. Maybe you have decided to replace your worn-out mailbox with a new one. If so, you might as well select a decorative mailbox. 

Maybe you aren't shopping for a mailbox that will actually be used for mail that comes through the United States postal system. Instead, maybe you are wanting to use the mailbox to add pizzazz to a room in your house, such as the kitchen or the family room. No matter how the decorative mailbox will be used, read on for some ideas on the kind of mailbox you will end up selecting.

Select An Old-Fashioned Mailbox - Think of the charm that mailboxes had in the "olden days." There will be many different styles from which you can make your choice.

  • One idea is to buy a wall-mounted metal mailbox with trailing English ivy as the focal point. 
  • Consider selecting a weathered antique look for your mailbox. Choose one that has the word "POST" on it, which was often used in years gone by.
  • Maybe choose a free-standing English-style mailbox with a royal crown top as part of the design. Of course, it should be red like the real British mailboxes often were.
  • Keeping with a British theme, you can go with a Victorian-style green mailbox that features a horse and the word "LETTERS" on a gold background.

Order A Customized Mailbox - Maybe you would rather have a more contemporary decorative mailbox. Consider selecting a customized one.

  • For example, if you love birds, order a mailbox that has colorful birds and flowers as the main design.
  • Another idea is to order a contemporary mailbox that is painted in black and white checks and that has your last name on it.
  • If you would prefer something more simple, go with a mailbox in your favorite color and with your last name in a contrasting color.
  • A really unique mailbox with brightly painted row houses as the design would be a real eye-catcher. 

If you are buying the decorative mailbox for the inside of your house, think of leaving messages for family members inside the mailbox. Pretty soon, your spouse and your children might catch on and start leaving messages in the mailbox, too. This might turn into a fun family tradition.
