Neon Interior Lighting Ideas

Neon is a colourless stable gas, which produces colour when added to other elements and electricity. The most common use of neon lights is in signs for stores, bars and restaurants, but it can also be added to an interior decor to create a funky modern appearance in your home. Neon light manufacturers can fashion the tubes of light into any shape. Neon lights are energy efficient while providing bright vibrant colours, which makes this decorative lighting an ideal choice for modern home interiors.

Game Room

A game room is one room in your home where you can freely explore the use of neon lights. Neon wall art and sculptures give your game room a 1980s retro appearance. Choose neon light art that displays aspects of your favourite game, or hang a neon clock for the game room wall. Choose signs for the walls that fit a game theme, such as "Billiards."

Child's Room

Find neon designs that will tie in to your child's bedroom theme, such as teddy bears, rainbows or characters from his favourite movie. If your child has a favourite sports team, display neon football helmets or basketballs in that team's colours. Neon bicycle or car sculptures also make charming decor for a child's. The neon light can also serve as a night light in a child's room.

Home Theater

Decorate the walls of your home theatre with neon to create atmosphere and provide light in the darkened room. Use a minimal amount of neon light during the viewing of a film to prevent a distraction. Place neon light stairs or walkways in the dark home theatre to prevent falls. Neon wall posters that feature movie icons, such as James Dean and Marilyn Monroe, incorporate neon tubing for a retro ambience. Use neon sculptures of ice cream sundaes or signs that say "popcorn" over the refreshment bar in the home theatre.

Contemporary Style

Neon light doesn't have to be restricted to game rooms and home theatres. Use neon wall art right out in the open in a contemporary or modern interior design. Designs from humingbirds to electric guitars will allow you to find pieces that suit your taste and style. Neon works well with an art deco interior design, as well. Look for retro pink flamingos for a bold piece of art for your room.
