Eichler house numbers and address plates for mid-century modern homes are usually stylish yet subdued, complimenting the overall look-and-feel of a modern and architecturally unique home.
House numbers for Eichlers and other mid-century modern homes are traditionally captured utilizing non-ornate fonts with clean lines. Three of the most popular fonts for mid-century modern house numbers include the Neutra / Neutraface font, the Microgramma font and the Sans Serif Face font.
While the Sans Serif font is more characteristic of traditional Eichler house numbers, the Neutraface font (pictured below) was inspired by mid-century architect Richard Neutra and is a popular alternative which has a more updated look and is often available in a variety of finishes such as brushed aluminium and stainless steel which can make your Eichler / mid-century modern house numbers 'pop'.
Excellent replicas of the original Eichler house numbers can be purchased directly through a small California-based company called Eichler Numbers which you can find out more about by visiting our Eichler Home Service Provider Directory. This company produces a great product and will ship their Eichler house numbers worldwide.
Several vendors and speciality shops carry Neutraface House Numbers which look great with modern & mid-century modern homes. A few of these companies include Modern House Numbers, Custom House Numbers, Inc. as well as Design within Reach (DWR). Additionally, many of the big box home improvement stores now carry house numbers that are similar in design to Neutra House Numbers but can be obtained for a signficantly lower price.
Beyond these two popular mid-century modern house numbers, many Eichler homeowners have found other modernist options which compliment the overall aesthetic of their home.
