It is quite unfortunate to find beautifully lit living rooms, bedrooms and foyers but clumsy children’s rooms. It’s time for your children’s room to be a part of your home decor as well. Children’s lamps not only make your children feel safer, but they are an important part of their room decor. Safety is paramount, but splendor should never be compromised either.
When choosing the lights for your child’s room, several factors take into account in addition to just the basic safety factor. Here is a short guide on how to make appropriate choices without compromising the safety of your children.
What the children do in their rooms
Some children are very playful and hardly leave anything unattended as long as the object attracts their attention. Every child to some extent has some curiosity and would do anything to find out what they need to know. If the rooms are most often used for play and sleep, the children’s lamps should be mounted high on the walls. As a precaution, halogen lamps should be avoided as much as possible. LED (LED) lamps are a better option for children’s room lighting with many activities.
Which you can choose between ambient light and task light
You would probably like to have both. Ambient lighting is important for the children’s room to always be well lit. The choice between these two types of lighting also depends on the activities in the room. If children are going to study in their rooms or do homework, a work lamp may be important. A work lamp can also be placed next to your children’s beds if they enjoy reading storybooks at night. Always remember to use a low power lamp to reduce the amount of heat generated.
Which lighting styles should you choose?
The children’s rooms are a great opportunity for you to design a cool space that will amaze your children. Use lampshades that have their beloved Disney character features. Make the light selection process a fun moment by involving them while shopping.
What to think about for the night light
Night lighting is available in different colors and styles, from the practical to the decorative. Decide whether to use the rechargeable, battery-powered or plug-in night lights. The night light should scatter the light and be strong enough so that the children can feel comfortable in the dark. Make sure they have a low power, especially when the children’s lamps are placed next to the bed.
