There was once a time when neon signs were reserved for neighborhood bars, takeout joints, or man caves. The times, though, they are a changin'. Nowadays neon art (think: cheeky phrases and cute shapes) are popping up in kitchens — and we're kind of loving it. Simply put, this trend is lit.

It's no secret that we're into the idea of art in kitchens. And neon signs take it a step further, adding a funky bit of 'tude that's rarely found in the most practical room in the house. Plus, they're a great way to add color! Whether it's a cute pink heart, bright flamingo, or an oversized pineapple, a neon sign can be a stylish-yet-practical addition to a kitchen or dining room.

While you could easily spend $1,000 on a custom neon sign, you can also get some that are much more reasonably priced. See some not-too-expensive options below.

SPLURGE ALERT! If you're willing to spend a bit more money, look no future than Electric Confetti. The Insta-famous company exploded last year, thanks to the totally viral cuteness of some of their custom neon work. We're partial to their iconic peach emoji, a colorful banana and this clever pizza sign, as seen in this dining nook on A Beautiful Mess.
