Neon lighting is one of the most underrated forms of illumination out there. Most storefronts have a neon open sign but we often forget about coloured accent lights in our homes. LED lights have been replacing all other forms of lighting. Neon signs have always been popular in the signage industry. Interior designers have welcomed LED neon signs into their sphere. Neon lights are becoming popular accent pieces for entryways, bedrooms and living rooms.

Interior Accent Lighting

What is accent lighting in interior design?

Accent lighting is used in interior design to highlight certain elements like paintings, sculptures, an entrance or architectural features. Accent lighting is often a one-of-a-kind artwork that is the showpiece of the space. This is the case most often when working with neon lights. Accent lights can also be chosen to be a feature, such as chandeliers or pendants.

What is the main objective of accent lighting?

Accent lighting differs from the other types of lighting in that its primary objective is aesthetic, creating a point of interest for the viewer. It adds style and drama to a space and is especially suited to living and garden areas, entrances, and anywhere the goal is to display special features.

Preparing your home for neon lights


Neon Lights are often used to create interest in a dark location, beautifying spaces and helping them stand out. Neon lights are effective as accent lights. You can brighten up your living space by bringing the colours back at night. Regardless of your current home decor contemporary or traditional, just a few bold neon colours will work wonders. As neon signs cannot be overlooked, it’s crucial that you strike the right balance when adding colours to your space. Your colour choices will invoke emotions and set the mood for your space.


How to pair neon colours to get the right look


When choosing neon colours, you can be creative with your colour combinations. Pair primary colours to create secondary colours where the light overlaps. For example, a neon sign with a red and blue neon tube will throw off a beautiful purple glow. Analogous colours are a safe bet and will always look beautiful.

Complementary colours like red and green are popular for open signs. For advertising purposes there’s no reason to hold back these pairings, they’re certain to get attention. But avoid pairing complementary colours in your home. Focus on using light to relax the atmosphere.
