Read on to learn more about our brilliant new neon signs and find out how you can style some of our favorites!

What is neon?

Aside from being a word used to describe a color, neon is a component used to create fluorescent signs.

Neon lights are created by a process in which neon gasses are pumped into a hollow glass tube and electrified by two conductors on either end. The process of pumping electricity through the tube via the gas results in the brilliant, colorful lights we know and love today.

Neon has a long and colorful history that’s intrinsically tied to advertising and entertainment. Because of these connotations, neon quickly caught on in other sectors of everyday life, gaining popularity among designers and decorators the world over. 


Today, you can find an assortment of neon-inspired art, wall decor, signs, lights, etc. People love the look of neon so much that cities with collections of neon signs have become popular tourist destinations!

With so many options to choose from, it’s no wonder why so many people are left scratching their heads and asking themselves, “which neon decor piece suits my home decor?”

How to choose the right neon home decor piece?

While the variety of choices can be daunting, there is an easy way to decide what piece of neon home decor best suits your space! 

To start, you should always choose pieces that you enjoy. Generally speaking, if you follow this advice and choose pieces of decor that you like and find appealing, your home and your style will fall into place to match.

However, if you have a specific aesthetic or style in mind: choose pieces that match your overarching design and color schemes. For example, if your room is very relaxed and coastal-inspired, go for beachy-themed neon or neon signs with a blue or gold color palette. If your room is an urban-chic mix of polished architectural elements and feminine touches, go for city-inspired neons in more jewel and pastel-toned color schemes. 

What are LEDs?

Light-emitting diodes (LEDs for short) are a relatively new lightning invention that came into prominence in the 1990s.

LEDs are not only incredibly energy-efficient, bright, and small, but they come in hundreds of different colors, withstand a decade of continuous use, and are easy to operate, manipulate and install, requiring little prior knowledge or training to get started. In fact, LED lights use 80% less energy and last 25 times longer than traditional incandescent lights!

That’s a lot of money you could be saving!!!

What are the differences between neon signs and LED signs?

Visually, there is very little difference between LED and neon signs

Designers can create LEDs that look just like traditional neon signs, plus their LED counterparts are more reliable, longer-lasting, humidity resistant, and stay cool no matter how long you leave them on!

Our new line of neon LED signs mimic traditional neon styles’ look and come at an affordable price point, making them great additions to your home decor.

This is all well and good, but how can I use neon LED signs?

Use them to make a statement.

The newest trend with neon LED lights is to use them to imbue a space with personality and fun.

For this very reason, our designers have created a range of fun, loud, and proud LED signs featuring all sorts of statements, phrases, and themes. There truly is something for everyone, and each sign brings you closer to making your space more your own.

Create an effortlessly cool vibe.

There is something undeniably cool about neon signs. 

They add a certain je ne sais quoi to any space and instantly heighten your area’s vibes.

Whether they’re purely decorative, political, or functional, these signs are unmistakably and unabashedly electrifying.

Beautify your space.

Ultimately, neon LED signs are a piece of wall decor, the cherries on top of your already beautiful home decor. Use these acrylic box signs as striking and personal aesthetic touches to help elevate and finish your space. 

We’re expanding this collection of neon acrylic boxes in the coming months and can’t wait to show you what’s coming next!
