You can barely go on Instagram without seeing a message in block letters slapped across a cinema light box — as one of 2017’s top home accessories, and available everywhere from Primark to The Works, you can barely enter a house without spotting one.

But it isn’t always easy to decide what to make yours say. Should we just start with our name? Or some sort of funny #hashtag message?

Well, that’s the beauty of the thing: you can make it say whatever you want. So, if you need some inspiration to make your light box really spark conversation whenever people enter your place, feel free to *borrow* some ideas from these greats.

Set yourself up for the day with an upbeat message that’ll turn any gloomy Monday into a HELL YEAH day.
