You may have seen Nanoleafs on your favourite YouTuber’s wall or in fancy clubs and design agencies, but what you probably didn’t know is that there are a lot of great Nanoleafs alternatives out there too! This list of best Nanoleaf alternatives can help you choose the best hexagon wall lights for your needs!

Feel free to skip ahead  to a specific Nanoleaf alternative if you’re short on time:

#1. Luminosa Remote Control Hexagon Wall Light

The Luminosa Remote Control Hexagon Wall Light has a lot of modes aside from the 13 monochrome modes. It has a colourful slow-change mode, fast-change mode, monochrome flash mode, brightness adjustment mode, and a timing function.

Switching from one mode to another is also made easy — with a simple touch on its remote.  It comes with a USB power supply, so users can easily connect the wall panel to a laptop, a PC, or even to a power bank.

There’s no complicated instruction as to its power supply, so long as you have a USB port available.  Also, it is touch-sensitive. To change each panel’s colour, you can just simply tap the centre.

Unlike the Nanoleaf, this product is compatible with other wall light products, so if you feel like attaching another wall light with a different brand name, it won’t be an issue.

This product, however, is thicker than the Nanoleaf. While the Nanoleaf is only 0.24-inches thick, the Luminosa is 1.2 inches thick. So the wall panel design won’t be as sleek and as minimalist as the Nanoleaf.  Every Luminosa hexagon panel is also only 2 inches long and 4 inches wide.

There is no doubt that ODISTAR is a worthy Nanoleaf alternative and can be used as a colourful wall design in any part of the house — may it be in the bedroom, the living room, or in the office.

  • It has a USB power supply
  • It’s compatible with other products
  • It’s touch-sensitive
  • It’s thicker than Nanoleaf

While the Nanoleaf can adapt to the rhythm of the music, the SELFILA RGB lights can be adjusted depending on the mood or ambience. For example, a cosy and quiet ambience for reading or a multi-colour effect for parties. It can be adjusted for different scenarios or environments like in a cosy night in with a takeaway or to add energy to a music studio.

Price-wise, this product is also cheaper. This will include six 7 x 7 in. panels, with a thickness of 2 inches. So, it is also thicker than the Nanoleaf.  Meanwhile, what makes this product better is that it has magnetic splicing, so connecting each panel comes with complete ease.

  • The Rhythm module recognizes music so the panels change colour in time with...

Hey, so it’s a bit of a cheat, to call the Rythm edition of Nanoleaf a Nanoleaf alternative but it really is a top-quality product a deserves a spot on this page. One of the great features of the Nanoleaf Rhythm Edition Smarter Kit is that it can be paired with an Alexa device (if you have one already) for voice control.

Another big advantage is that it is still from the Nanoleaf family. Once you get extra money to spend, you can always buy the expansion pack to extend your wall panel design.

Also, it comes with 15 panels while the usual starter kits only come with 5, 7 or 9 panels. But, of course, it comes with a hefty price tag while the starter kits are only half the price.

Compared to the Nanoleaf Canvas, its PSU cable length is twice as long (16.5 ft/ 5 m). Per panel is also bigger in size, with its height and width measured at 8.25 in and 9.5 in respectively, while the Canvas panel only measures 5.9 x 5.9 in.

Moreover, there’s a bit of a problem with the wall adhesive that comes along with the panels, according to a few customer reviews. Although other consumers testified that the amount of 3M strips included are more than enough.

Basically, what it does is It recognizes the rhythm of your music and the LED panels will accordingly react, giving its users a stunning audiovisual light show.

  • It’s still a Nanoleaf product
  • It has more panels than other products
  • Its lights are reactive to the rhythm of the music
  • It comes with a hefty price tag
  • It only comes in a triangular shape
  • It’s not touch-reactive
