Retro bar signs are becoming more and more popular over the years; being used for different decorating ideas and themes. This type of sign has been around for years, although always consider a typical sign primarily used to advertise alcohol products such as wine or beer, and usually found only in taverns; not a home.
Bar signs are generally signs displaying some sort of advertisement, usually an alcoholic beverage lite up (surrounded by) a brightly colored neo light. Neon signs, commonly referred to as a bar sign; have just recently over the last few years been extremely popular among home owners and decorators alike.
These days decorating with more unique and vintage items has become the quit the rage. Individuals may choose to purchase such items as for their family rooms, dad’s finished garage, and their personal bar room areas, kitchens, back decks, or even certain enclosed pool areas.
Neon signs can be found in various shopping places such as the internet, trinket and collectable shops, sports shops, party shops, and certain specialty stores.
The cost for these signs varies greatly; of course finding the originals from years ago are going to be way more expensive than those manufactured most recently. Depending on the size of the sign and how much is actually covered in the neon lighting will determine the price of the sign; although normally these types of signs range between a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars.
The benefits of purchasing a sign such as this is it’s certainly a conversation piece, it will add to the particular theme of the room or setting and one of the biggest benefits it that they can actually be custom made according to your wished. Of course having anything custom made means the price will certainly increase no matter what the item is.
It’s also important to keep in mind that with a neon light, the bulbs do eventually burn out over time (a very long time), so it’s good to do your research and find out the process to replacing them when this happens.
This is definitely the type of item that most people would love to own or even receive as a gift; it not only adds flair to any themed setting but it also gives off an ambient light for everyone to enjoy. Of course if the advertisement on the sign goes with the theme of a particular room or sitting area, it tends to draw more focus on the lighting. People are often enamored at the different ways people choose to add flair and design to their decorating schemes and this will certainly do it for whatever room or area your thinking of decorating.
