There is something about mailboxes that I find charmingly appealing. Its probably because in this day and age where communication is usually done through cellphones, email, chatting, video conferencing and other high-tech and high-speed communication tools, it's really touching to receive a well-written and heartwarming letter in our mailbox.

I've noticed some really nice mail boxes online and you can even choose among different varieties available. Some say mailboxes display your interior decorating skills outside of your home. Among the wide variety of choices are free-standing or wall mounted mail boxes . For free-standing varieties there are traditional post style or the column style mailbox.

Several factors to consider when choosing the right mailbox. One is the available space. Colors should also complement the color of your house. Choose one that shows your personality. Check online sites like mailboxexchange for available styles.

Once you already have it, landscaping the area around it would be a great way to personalize your mail box area. Plant something around your mailbox that complements your existing landscape design. Flowering plants are also a nice touch but make sure to choose the ones that bloom at different times. Make sure that the plant and flower size is proportionate to the size of the mailbox. You wouldn't want one that's too small or too large and therefore crowding your mailbox. You may also opt to plant ornamental grass around the mailbox for easy maintenance.
