Using Neon as a Light Source

23 June 2020 By Jessica Jones

Neon signs have long been used for many different purposes over the years, mostly to advertise bars and restaurants in bustling city centres. In more recent times, they have crept into our homes and created a striking decorative feature for a previously empty wall.

No matter what purpose a neon sign serves, you can bet it always looks impressive with an artistic flair and an inimitable pop of colour. At Neon Creations, this is what we do best!

If you are looking for a neon sign that serves a unique purpose in your home or place of work, have you considered using neon as the main light source for a room?

Decorative lighting ideas

While neon signs often hang on a wall to provide a modern piece of artwork or to advertise a brand name, they naturally give off a bright glow which you can also incorporate into your home or business.

Thanks to the extensive choice of colours, you can create decorative lighting in any room you see fit.

Using a neon sign as a light source can create a unique design feature in any space, offering something different to the traditional ceiling or wall light that may already be fitted.

Modern lighting alternatives

Making neon signs and lights is a skill that has been around for decades, yet it still remains a cool, retro style that finds its way into modern buildings every day. We bend the glass into the right shapes by hand, before pumping the tubes with the right gas to create the desired colour. Neon gas helps to create that well-known red colour, while argon gas creates other colours.

We assemble all the sections, including adding a transformer and tube supports before wiring the sections together to create a circuit. Once all the steps have been completed, the finished sign is switched on and that amazing glow lights up the room.
