It may seem like a small thing, but the type of mailbox you choose for your home can really add to your home’s look from the curb. A striking post-mounted box can tell passers-by “midcentury modern” before they even see your roofline while a nice wall-mounted box can blend into your style with just a dash of panache. If you’re in the market for a new mailbox, why not try one of these AR-approved options?
