A traditional letterbox is great for nearly everyone. Aside from a simple design, a traditional mailbox with a clapper top has a large opening that can fit nearly everything inside it. You can easily receive parcels or bigger mail like A4 envelopes without having the post man crush them completely or telling you to pick them up at the post office. The classic design also stands up to the test of time and never goes out of style. The downside is that nearly everyone on the block will have the same stock standard letterbox as you, so your house will not stand out. So maybe you should go with a more contemporary style and design.

Note: Remember that fitting new letterboxes is not the easiest task if you are thinking about taking the DIY approach. This is something that should be done with care if you’re thinking about installing it on the lawn or building one into the door. You can do this to nearly every front door including wooden and PVC doors alike. The most daunting part of the whole thing, is cutting a hole out of your front door which can go wrong, so it’s best left for the professionals to do.
