Enhance Your Home With Decorative Plaques and Signs

To add an accent to a plain wall or make a room a little more personal, consider buying a decorative plaque. Available in all manner of materials, fixing-styles, and designs, decorative plaques and signs on eBay offer a wealth of ways to truly make your house a home.

What types of decorative plaques should you consider?

Depending on where you plan to put your decorative sign, there are a number of materials and styles that might be suitable. For indoor signs, weather-proofing is not important, although some areas - like a kitchen or bathroom - would benefit from a moisture-resistant design. Decorative signs and plaques are a great way to personalise your space, so consider the following:

  • Screw fitting: House name signs and door number signs usually come with pre-drilled holes for permanent placement. To protect the screws from rusting or water ingress, caps that fit neatly over the head should be used.
  • Loop hanging: If you're planning to use your decorative plaque as a feature in a room, consider designs with rope or chain hangings. Easily hung on a picture hook, this type of decorative sign can be moved around your home whenever you feel the need for an aesthetic change.
  • Glue attachment: You can buy individual letters on eBay and spell out a name or phrase. Perfect for kid's rooms, these come with a sticky tab on the back, making it simple to fix them to walls and doors.
Can you get quotes on decorative signs?

Yes. As well as numeric signs for doors and walls, there are a number of options for text-printed decorative plaques or signs. Some have additional slots for pictures and photographs, while others can be purchased with your favourite homily. If you want something that changes with your mood, consider a plain, slate sign - write on it in chalk, then change it when it suits.

Materials of decorative plaques and signs

Decorative signs and plaques come in a variety of materials, all with specific benefits. Aluminium and metal signs can offer an industrial vibe to a room, while wooden or slate variants complement a rustic theme. Acrylic, plastic, and PVC are moisture-resistant and easy to clean, while ceramic and glass give a more delicate impression.

Choosing the right decorative sign for a gift

Commemorate a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary, or tell someone how much you love them with a personalised message. When considering a decorative sign for someone else, make sure to pick a material that matches their decor and a fixing style that is simple to utilise. A personalised sign makes an excellent gift, but if the recipient can't hang it easily, the sentiment may be lost.
