Best neon signs to make your space sparkle

n


Eon lights were once a sign used to display the whereabouts of mischievous and ill-advised activities; Gambling, drinking, 24-hour convenience breakfast – you know, all the fun stuff.

They’ve gone through a revolution and now neon signs are back; Clean, sassy and recruited to bring contemporary cool lighting to our homes.


It’s such an everyday part of our city landscape that some people stop to think about how this bright, dazzling kind of light came to be. Discovered by British scientists before the turn of the last century in 1898, neon is a noble gas that can be found on the periodic table and is responsible for creating the signal from Las Vegas all the way to the brightness of London.

A Neon Sign Buying Guide From An Expert

Location: Unless a clear front cover is installed in Neon, it is recommended that Neon be installed in a place where it cannot be easily knocked over and broken or children can reach.

Mood: It is important that you choose the right setting for neon so that you get the best mood/ambiance. Neon is often used as an alternative lighting for side lamps.


Colour: Think about the glow you want to create. Red and pink will give a warm glow while blue and white will give a feeling of coolness.

Design / Wording: Everyone has favorite sayings or mantras that mean a lot to them personally. Often people have an affectionate nickname for their partner and use these in a message; I liked what we read ‘Okay Sausage’. We had a couple who had lost a baby and wanted ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ in neon to make her feel in her glow. The word is especially important if used as a mantra. I’ll have the words ‘Just Do It,’ because it really helps stop procrastination. Whatever you decide on its design or color, make sure it feels comfortable and something to please you.

Establishment: It is important that you decide during the design phase whether you want to fit your neon to the backing panel. It can be almost anything; We work with wood, metal, Perspex, fake living walls, a picture or anything you like. It can then be supplied with a hanging hook and plugged directly into a nearby socket. You want the neon displayed on a wall, but you’ll need a spot to hide the remote transformer. This type of installation is often done with an electrician who can run cables into the wall designed for neon engineers to fit the transformer and neon directly to the wall.
