Welcome to The House Numbers blog! At www.housenumbers.co.uk we specialise in creating the perfect finishing touch to a property. We spend all our days creating custom house numbers and bespoke house names, so this blog will bring together our products and the inspiration we gather for them: pictures of beautiful homes we encounter, the latest in architecture, front door styling and lots more! We will also be blogging about running a small family business and the challenges that face smaller online companies in an ever-changing marketplace.
Housenumbers Limited was established in 2005 by Katherine & Charles Ellis, after their family failed to find a house number they loved for a new house extension. The number 17 in a circle, which now forms part of our corporate image, was admired by friends and neighbours to such an extent that the business just took off from word of mouth recommendations. Katherine, Charles and their daughter Josie now run the business full time, aided by a small and dedicated team who help bring everything together. September 2018 saw expansion into a larger business premises and the purchase of new equipment including our own laser cutter, so it is truly an exciting time to start documenting the behind the scenes of our family business!
