Neon Inspiration for Your Home
20 July 2018 By Jessica Jones
Neon signs have become a very popular design feature across many different types of properties, enhancing the space and providing a talking point for your guests. While neon signs have often been a key part of the décor within bars and restaurants, they have now become an option for your home too.
Neon signs now come in a huge variety of shapes, sizes and colours, meaning you can have one that matches your home perfectly. With a personalised quote or symbol to really put your own touch on your house, a neon sign could be just what your walls are missing.
So, if you’ve been looking at adding a neon sign to your bedroom, living room or somewhere else entirely, here is some inspiration to get you started. Remember; you can always contact us through our website to ask any questions you have about the type of sign you want!
Popular types of neon signs
When you ask for a ‘neon sign’, you could be referring to a whole host of different types, and the one you choose will largely depend on your personal taste. We can create a huge range of neon signs that all create a different effect, so it’s important that you know the different types before powering on ahead.
Our Neon on Print designs are a contemporary style of neon sign by using a print as the background. This can be a personalised print of almost anything, or you can choose from one of our existing designs. Neon on print designs create a great mix of mediums, with the bright neon fixed to the front. Your new neon print sign will arrive ready to hang, and just needs to be plugged in!
Neon mirror boxes have become another modern way to display neon in your home. These are unique products that aren’t quite as bold as other designs, making it a subtle addition of neon to whichever room you choose. Our neon mirror boxes can be customised to your specifications as the designs are lasered on!
If you’re hoping for something with a bit more of a ‘wow’ factor, our neon infinity boxes might be right up your street. Neon infinity boxes have a great visual effect, with the illusion that the neon pattern goes on and on. You can choose from a huge range of colours and can be mounted directly on the wall. Keep one for yourself, or give one as a gift.
Where should you put your neon sign?
Neon signs are a great talking point as well as an incredibly eye-catching piece of art, so you’ll want to choose somewhere where it’ll be seen the most! Your living room is one of the boldest choices; with many opting for the space above your fireplace, or even behind the sofa.
This can create a great focal point in your living room, highlighting the whole room. Choose a colour that matches the colour scheme of the room and you’re good to go! Similarly, hanging a neon sign above your bed can create an inviting ambience to your bedroom; choose anything from a picture of your friends adorned with neon, or your favourite lyric mounted on your wall.
Another popular choice is the kitchen. This gives you room to be creative, with so many food and drink motifs or quotes to choose from, or just keep it simple depending on your taste. It can add a retro feel to your kitchen, with a pop of colour that no kitchen lights can compete with!
If you have a spare room that you use as a games room or perhaps even a man cave, you simply can’t beat a neon sign to add to the décor. Setting the mood and making the room an even better place to hang out with your friends, a neon sign is perfectly in keeping with the environment; especially if you have a few retro games hidden away!
Choosing the right colour for your neon sign
At Neon Creations, we have around 40 colours for you to choose from when it comes to your neon sign, so you can make sure it perfectly matches the room that it’s going in. We do sometimes have access to more colours, so just let us know if you want something different and we’ll see what we can do!
We have a colour chart to give you an idea of the types of colours we have. You’ll find it includes all the popular colours, with various shades to create your desired effect; including blue, purple, pink, red, yellow and orange, green and white.
So, if you’re looking to do something a little different with your home’s interior, why not consider one of our many neon signs?
