How to decorate with neon signs

Collaborative Post¦ Neon signs have been around for many years. However, in more recent years, they have become somewhat trendy when it comes to interior design. They can make a room feel modern, futuristic, and nostalgic all at the same time. How neat is that? Not only do they make for a great feature, but neon signs don’t have to cost an arm and a leg either, which just adds to their popularity.

Traditionally, neon signs were used to draw attention to a specific brand or product. However, many of the neon signs we see in interiors nowadays can be customised to a specific décor. Neon signs can fit into any room and often look great, but it’s important to consider what the sign is actually going to say. There are some instances where homeowners aren’t bothered by a particular phrase or whatnot and would rather have a neon sign designed into a particular shape instead. Whatever the choice, here are a few tips when it comes to decorating with neon signs.

Consider the size

When considering any type of wall art, size is essential. You don’t want something too small as it will look lost on the wall and not create the desired impact. You also don’t want something too big as it can take away from other focal points and cause a bit of an eyesore. Considering the right size is important as it means the neon sign can make a great impact and be a stylish piece of art on the wall.

The size of the wall is a huge factor in considering the size of a neon sign. The bigger the wall space, the bigger the sign needs to be. The actual design of the neon sign will also contribute to the size of the sign. For lengthy phrases like the “Pumpkin spice and everything nice” sign from, the sign will need to be bigger. For smaller designs, perhaps a single word or shape, the sign itself will be smaller. This is because it requires fewer materials and will not be as intricate.

Choose the right colour

If you have already seen some of the neon signs from Neon Mama, you will know that there are various colours to choose from. You can pretty much select any colour from the rainbow and have a sign reflect that colour. Thankfully, as there is so much choice, a neon sign can easily fit into a room’s décor. Of course, some colours are better than others and pair well with interior styles. A common trend right now is a dark feature wall. These walls are usually charcoal, navy or even a pine colour and they all pair exceptionally well with neon colours. Navy walls look great with pink signs, pine walls look great with orange or yellow signs, and charcoal can pair with any colour, really. As these colours pair well and complement each other, it sets a relaxed tone in any room.

Pick the perfect design

Different rooms in the house will need different neon signs. Some rooms may require a larger sign with a more detailed design; others may just need a smaller, simple design. The design of a sign will ultimately be what makes it stand out. For offices, motivational signs may be a good choice, but then that will not be appropriate for a dining room or home bar. Instead, something else would likely be more appealing. Designs don’t have to be extravagant; a simple sign saying Oh La La in a dressing room can make a huge impact and make the room look stylish. Usually, the simpler designs are often most effective.

Above all, neon signs are a great addition to various interior design styles and can make a room more inviting and fun!
