Fountains can be added to old-style as well as new-style houses. Just match the colours with your house and make a stunning installation in your garden.

Do you want to add a funky, cute, and casual look to your house? Then why not add a ‘porch rules’ sign to your walls? These ‘rules’ are nothing but suggestions to enjoy yourself and be peaceful and relaxed.

These rules can be bought online or you can also make them on your own for a more personalised touch. These rules can be hung on a wall or you can also make a small signpost with these rules for a cute and rustic look. 

10. Putting Your House Number in Your Wall

Along with outdoor wall art, you can also make creative use of your outdoor space. You can add your personal touch to your house by adding pretty and unique house numbers.

You can choose from a variety of options but remember a few things- the number should be legible and should be in bold font so that it is visible even from a distance. The number and the font should suit the style of the house.

For instance, an old-style number plate will not suit a modern and contemporary house. It is also recommended to put the numbers under the light so that it is visible even at night and from a distance. 

You can either buy readymade numbers from the market or can make your own. You can put the numbers on a bright background or can use them directly. A fine idea would be using artificial turf to create house numbers.
