If you're lucky enough to have a spare room that you can transform into a game room, you'll probably be looking for that extra touch to really make your space your own. Great gaming rooms are usually adorned with bright lights and easy to view monitors, but what can you add to go that extra step further? An LED neon sign could be exactly what you need to complete your gaming space.
In this guide, we will explain why you should choose a bright neon sign for your game area, which signs would look best, and where you can place your brand-new LED sign. We will also highlight which factors you should consider before buying your sign, as well as explore our various collections here at Neon Vibes®.
Why should I choose a neon sign for my gaming room?
Adding a bright gaming neon sign to your room can not only enhance your space, but provide a personalised touch too. A unique LED sign can set your game room apart from your friends,' and you can even design your very own sign to fit with your personal preferences. You can customise your sign however you'd like, with different colours, fonts and sizes to choose from.
With LED neon signs in particular, you don't have to worry about the amount of energy they use inflating your bills. LED lights are incredibly energy efficient, as they don't burn as brightly as incandescent bulbs and therefore don't need as much energy. They're also much safer than traditional neon signs, as they won't burn as hot and can be left alone for longer periods.

Which neon signs would look best in my gaming room?
There are plenty of themed neon signs that would look great in a gaming room. From notable phrases to recognisable characters from well-known video games, you can make your space a true gamer's den. You can incorporate the famous Playstation circle, cross, triangle and square symbols into a sign, or you can have them on their own, providing fun familiarity and light.
If you prefer images to words, why not add some famous characters in neon sign form to your room? Kirby is a fan favourite amongst gamers, and this Kirby neon sign is the perfect choice for grabbing attention and completing your gaming room. You can also bring the Super Mario world to life in your space by adding a neon sign of the Boo Ghost.

If you're looking for something simple, this neon sign of a controller could be the staple product in your gaming room, drawing attention whilst also making clear exactly what your room is used for.
Where can I place my LED neon sign in my gaming room?
When hanging your brand-new LED neon sign in your gaming room, you need to make sure it is located where it can be admired, and it won't be missed by guests. Placing your sign above your gaming setup or computer screen can provide light whilst you're gaming, becoming the centrepiece of your room. You could even place the sign across from your door, making it the first sight you see as you enter your gaming den. If your monitor is across from your door, even better!
Natural lighting is just as important as artificial neon light, so placing your LED neon sign across from a window can enhance it even more. It is important, however, to ensure that your sign is located somewhere where it won't be easily damaged. If you have your window open frequently, try to ensure that it won't get wet or come into contact with anything that could affect it.
Ultimately, where you place your neon sign is entirely up to you. However, make sure that it is close to a power socket, and it is in a place where it won't be so easily damaged.
Factors to consider before choosing an LED neon sign
Before you jump in to buy your neon sign to add to your gaming room decoration, there are various elements that you need to consider:
A sign that is too big will look quite jarring and won't fit in well with the ambience you are trying to achieve. On the other hand, a sign that is too small may get lost, and won't make a great impression. Make sure you measure the wall where your sign will hang to make sure you order a sign that is perfectly suited to your dimensions.
Gaming rooms are usually bright and vibrant, so an LED neon sign should reflect this. Try looking towards greens, blues and reds to really make an impact. If you don't usually stick to the norm, more neutral colours such as warm whites will do the trick.
If you're opting for words for your sign, novelty, sans serif fonts are usually the go-to choice. They're more fun and eccentric, and fit in better than serif and scripts fonts.
Custom neon sign or pre-made?
There are plenty of pre-made signs that are perfect for a game room, just like the variations that we mentioned previously. However, you can create your own sign if you're looking for a more unique setting. You can use your own words, or you can commission a design completely from scratch.
