Decorating your space with neon
Regarding interior design, inspiration is always the key, helping to bring your ideas to life, take a look at these was to help bring a neon touch to your space…
Neon and neutral
A great interior design tip, which is becoming very popular, especially with today’s ‘minimalist’ interior approach, is pairing neon colours with neutral colours. If you want to add some excitement into your space, a neutral coloured room is a perfect backdrop for some bold pops of colour, so let your neon take centre stage whilst the rest of your room is calm and subdued.
Create ‘fun rooms’ where you can use neon
Whether it be a craft room, a play room or your child’s bedroom at your home, they’re great places to have a play around and experiment with colour, without having to be too serious. In the work place, breakout areas are a good place to start spreading your neon cheer.
Know your area, know your neon
The key to having neon is knowing just how to effectively utilise the effect in the space you are placing it. A mass of colour and complexity in a small area can sometimes be confusing to the eye and cause an effect that is the opposite of what you intend. Likewise, neon that is too understated or spread out over a large space can disappear in the background and not draw the attention you need to your area.
Another really important thing to consider when bringing neon into your home is the location of the neon pieces, correctly placing and mounting the piece can increase the effectiveness and attraction of the sign, whereas choosing a less effective area, or a backing that does not meet the requirements you need can detract from. If you want to appreciate the honesty of the neon, including the wires and the transformer that powers the sign, then a clear acrylic panel or case is ideal for your sign. If you prefer to have a nice tidy sign that has all the wiring and parts hidden from view, then an aluminium composite tray panel is a great option to go for. There are a variety of options to choose and their suitability and effectiveness is completely dependent on the purpose of your sign and area you wish to place it in
Turn down the lights
If you are looking to wind things down rather than liven them up, neon can still be a great addition to your space. With the ability to dim the light, neon can be used in a variety of forms as mood lighting or even as a night light for a child that then operates as a room decoration as they grow.
