Modern Mailboxes

     At our new house, the previous tenants have left us some pretty cheap and ugly fixtures on the outside of the home. One thing I particularly don't like is their paint-peeling, crooked, ugly tin mailbox. We plan on switching all of the fixtures to much more modern, contemporary designs. I thought getting a mailbox would be easy but it has proven to be harder then I originally thought, and much more expensive. 

     I found Chiasso Modern Design online and they seemed to have the best selection of mailboxes that caught my eye for a more affordable price. Other sites had some close to $300! These 3 are all the same price (which makes it harder to pick) and the ones I gravitate towards the most: 

1. Quite possibly my favorite! The windows will mimic the windows on the new garage door, but it is a little boxy. I like the detail and the magazine holder the most.

2. Another take on the windows, this time these match more with the front door. Has a more curved look which I also like. It might be mind games, but it appears that the mail slot is smaller then the other two.

3. Simple, sleek and no windows so no one can see when I win the Publishers Clearing House million dollars, but it might get lost on the house since it has no defining features. 

Which is your favorite? Which do you like the least? Let me know what you guys think in the comments below.


  1. These are all super cool! I LOVE the structure of the second one; it's an automatic favorite!

  2. What neat mailboxes! I'm a fan of the first - I like how it's simple but has some cool details.

  3. I really like the second one... I don't know why but I just love it!

  4. So two looks like the favorite!

  5. mailboxes ARE so much more expensive than I ever thought! I think my fave is the first one : )
