What is neon?
Neon is a gaseous chemical element found throughout the universe. To produce the effect tests were done with tubes that could be folded and the neon gas was placed inside them.
After that, neon lights were heavily used in the advertising medium. The goal was to provide eye-catching visual effects to catch the attention of customers. The technique is still widely used in cities like Las Vegas and New York.
Its most common form is of sign, mainly, like facades of some establishments. However, the object has been diffused in residential decorations because of the lighting effect it provides to the environments, in addition to leaving the place more modern and with a more retro feel.
How to use neon in home decor
Neon lighting greatly helps to improve the aesthetics of a home. It is not for nothing that has become a trend in the universe of interior design, but it is necessary to make some combinations when decorating the environment.
As neon is something very flashy, it always leaves the environment more irreverent. So be careful not to overdo it. Check out some tips on how to use neon in the home decor.
Use neon at strategic points
If you do not want to overdo the decor, you need to use neon at strategic points in the house. In this case, you have to use creativity to dock the object in the correct place that matches the rest of the decor.
Some walls, lowering of the plaster, frame or other object of decoration can be considered as strategic points. So, use the neon to brighten up a darker environment or highlight some area of the house.
Do not be afraid to dare
Most of the decorations that neon lighting uses are pure daring. Therefore, it is essential not to be afraid to play with colors, knowing how to perfectly balance the incidence of neon light in the environment.
You can bet on signs with funny and shocking phrases. Another option is to create discrete and irreverent objects that match the rest of the decor, just hire someone to make an object in the format you want.
Take advantage of leaving the modern environment
Despite being an old material, neon lighting only became a trend in residential decorations within a short time. However, this type of decor matches any style, even being something more retro.
When you make combinations with modern decorative items, the whole environment follows the same style. But it's good to invest in custom fixtures to get away from something more classic and traditional.
Try not to overdo it
The neon lighting itself is quite flashy and if you mix objects that follow the same line, the risk of overdoing the decor is enormous. Remember that the lights are strong and colorful, that is, it draws attention anywhere.
In this case, avoid using neon on the same wall to avoid causing discomfort and visual pollution. The purpose of using neon lighting is to leave the space more charming and modern.
Be consistent when choosing the color
The choice of color is a prime point for those who wish to decorate with neon lighting. The color must match the tone of the wall and the rest of the furniture in the room.
It is best to use a contrasting color. For example, if you have a black wall, you can use an object with neon in the colors red, yellow, orange or a lighter shade. But if the wall is cleaner, invest in the warm colors to get more attention.
Use and abuse of signs
The sign is the most successful piece in decorating the neon. This is because it is possible to use creative phrases with colors that contrast with the environment. In addition, phrases can be put in the way that you think is best.
The position of the sign will depend on the style of decoration you prefer. In the bedroom, the best bet is to put an inspirational phrase on the head of the bed. Already in the room, the item ends up replacing some frames and panels.
