Neon is having a moment, and while you probably don’t want to add a pop of neon to your bedroom walls, neon may be the best thing to add to an office, bachelor pad, or your kid’s dorm room. It’s fun, it’s funky, and it shows personality in a seriously bright way. Plus, you can get anything from clouds or motivational sayings to custom quotes in lights. Shop below for some our favorite picks that won’t cost a fortune.
It’s important to note that neon signs have come a long way since their invention in the early 20th century. Today, there are two types of neon wall hangings. The first type is akin to the original neon sign. These artworks are still made up of gas-filled glass tubes. They are highly breakable and tend to be quite expensive.
The second type of neon sign is the more modern LED neon. These are tubes filled with LED lights made to mimic neon. These types of signs are slightly cheaper than traditional neon and are much safer for use in children’s rooms and restaurants.
We have rounded up some cool examples of neon signage and decorative artwork that would look great hung over a fully stocked bar, in a dorm room or living area for all to see and admire.
