Thanks to the likes of Kendall Jenner's home and, well, every photo in our Instagram saved folder, we're kind of obsessed with neon signs. They can be introduced to any room of your home to bring a fun and playful touch, and customised to reflect your favourite phrase or logo.

But, as is sometimes the way with internet shopping, it can be hard to know where to look for neon signs in the UK. Namely because they're an investment piece, but also because you can hear horror stories of bad reviews or long waiting-lists. So where are the best places to buy neon lights and signs?

The brand have also paired up with the likes of cult Instagrammer Diet Prada on collaborations, like a tongue in cheek 'Prada or Nada' sign. Anyone got a dressing room in need of wall art?

Neon Creations is a team of six base in Bolton, boasting over 70 years of combined experience. Co-founded in 2005, they differ from other neon companies in that they use glass tubing to create their signs (which is more 'classic' in style) rather than just LED, and are either mounted on an acrylic case, or on an acrylic panel. They offer over 40 colours (!) with a life-span of 10 years. Prices start from around £350 +VAT.

After a cute neon sign but not sure you want to blow the bank? Oliver Bonas have got you covered, and offer a load of transparent acrylic box options with illuminated neon phrases.
