Always Follow These Principles

To put it simply, you need to follow these four principles in styling:

  • Less is more.
  • Follow one style.
  • Show your personality.
  • Make good use of lighting.

Now, let’s discuss them in detail:

Less is more.

In designing a neon aesthetic bedroom, many elements are available, such as neon signs, LED lights, vines, posters, and any other decorative stuff. However, when all of them appear in one bedroom, there can be no place to set your foot and your eyes. So focus on one stuff, and others sprinkle around.

Follow one style.

Most of the neon aesthetic bedroom designs show cute and pinky vibes, yet when you take a closer look at them, you’ll find each bedroom owns a unique style. Whether you want a party-like room, a luxurious room, or a place with a sense of laidback and warmth, follow one type!

Let’s say you want to create a cutie room; all your decorations and neon sign types should be in accord with the cutie style; that’s how you make your room aesthetic, but not the random combinations of two or three styles.

Show your personality.

We’ve talked about following one style, but does it mean there is only one element around? Surely not. Since the core of neon aesthetic style is to use magic signs and lights to show one’s personality and attitude toward living. You can combine various decorative elements, but attention, I mean multiple elements, not various styles.

For example, suppose you decide you want a cutie room. In that case, you can use neon signs, wall postures, and perhaps shining curtains together, all of which go under the cutie style, and they can still work perfectly in showing your personality and your thoughts on bedroom design.

Make good use of lighting.

Does neon aesthetic style mean neon signs only? I would say neon light is a vital part of this style, but there are also many options that you can make good use of together.

  • Neon signs
  • String lights
  • Decorative lamps

Neon signs – speaking of neon signs, there are mainly two types, one is with letters, the other with cute patterns, like animals, cartoon characters, etc.

You may find letter signs more suitable if your room has specific themes.

And to create a cozy and adorable vibe, get the pattern signs.

String lights – To exaggerate the atmosphere, you’ll also need string lights. You can directly hang them on the wall, on the ceiling, or around the standing mirror frame. A rising trend is to scatter them around the white curtains. Opt for the one with multiple lights and modes so you can change mood frequently with a simple button. And for string lights shape, you can see many different types:

Decorative lamps – Salt lamps, moonlights, night lamps, or other decorative lamps, place any of them in your room, and you have set the tone of warmth and cozy, and you’ll be amazed at how they work well with any room style.

Get These Accessories Ready For Your Neon Bedroom

Apart from the neon lights, here are other accessories that’ll enrich your room design:

White walls cooperate well with the luxurious room design, but the poster walls are a must for your neon aesthetic style. You can cover them on one whole wall or only a tiny piece of space.
