Neon signs offer bright lighting combined with vibrant design.

They are an innovative way to make a bold statement in home styling, whether to inject a sense of fun or a touch of retro charm. They are suitable for bedrooms, home bars, home offices, study areas, home gyms, nurseries, kids' rooms, or any living space.

    A neon light sign can reflect a teenager's personality and style in their room, serving as a trendy and cool décor element.

The Psychology of Colors & Mood

The neon sign will be in our home's living space, and as color impacts mood and motivation, we have to consider its color seriously.

Color is a crucial element that goes beyond aesthetics. This color-mood chart should help you choose the right colors for the space where you want to place a neon sign.

Here's a breakdown of how various colors of neon can affect mood:

Pink: Embodying gentleness and care, pink can foster an atmosphere of love, kindness, and playful spirits.

Red: This vibrant color is all about energy and passion. It is known to stir excitement and quicken the pulse.

Blue: Blue's calming effect can help reduce stress, fostering a peaceful and tranquil environment.

White: Representing purity and simplicity, white brings a sense of clarity and marks fresh starts.

Yellow: Radiating cheer and optimism, yellow can lift spirits and spark creativity.

Green: Mirroring the equilibrium and richness of nature, green cultivates a sense of well-being and harmony.

Purple: Associated with luxury and creativity, purple can inspire the imagination and add a touch of elegance.

Orange: This lively color exudes warmth and vigor, encouraging a zest for life and activity.

Custom Neon Signs for Room Décor

Before making a purchase, consider the option of a bespoke custom neon sign. The main advantage of buying a custom neon sign is that you can choose every aspect of how the sign looks and tailor it to suit your style and the room where it will be placed.

Here are the options available for custom neon signs:

Design: Opt for a unique design tailored to your preferences, including text, images, surnames, initials, or specific artwork, to make your sign unique.

Colors: Bring your design to life by selecting from a palette of 24 LED colors. Choose one or several to suit the design and bring the living space to life.

Fonts: The font choice is entirely up to you, allowing complete control over the sign's aesthetic.

Background Print: An option to choose UV-printed backgrounds to incorporate complex logos or artistic elements, enhancing the sign's visual appeal.

Mounting Type: Custom neon signs can be adapted for various mounting options. Hanging or wall mounting are our two most common options, and they come with pre-drilled holes to suit the requested mounting.

Advanced Features: Consider incorporating an advanced option like flashing effects or multicolor.

Traditional Neon vs LED Neon Signs

Understanding the differences between the two most common types of signs is essential before purchasing a particular type.

This is a comparison of the core differences between a classic neon gas sign and an LED neon sign:

Customization: LED neon light signs stand out for their unparalleled customization ability. They enable users to create unique shapes, personal styles, and bespoke messages. A broad selection of colors and fonts further amplifies this flexibility.

Eco-Friendliness: Compared to classic neon signs, LED neon signs are eco-friendly. They are designed to use less electricity and emit no harmful gases.

Durability: LED neon light signs are more durable, with an impressive lifespan of 50,000 to 100,000 hours. This offers substantial savings on maintenance and replacement costs.

Maintenance Simplicity: Owing to their robust and sturdy build, LED neon signs require minimal upkeep. The absence of fragile glass tubes and the presence of solid-state components mean they are less susceptible to damage and more accessible to care for.

Safety: Engineered for safety, LED neon signs operate at low voltages and generate minimal heat.


Neon signs offer a versatile and striking option for adding personality and flair to any room or home decor, blending art with functionality.

They illuminate spaces with a warm, inviting glow and reflect personal style and creativity, making them a must-have in contemporary interior design.

I hope the article has helped guide and walk you through the decisions and considerations when buying or designing a neon sign for a room.
