If you're planning on updating your kid's bedroom lighting, you're in for a fun project! There are more funky children's lighting options available today than ever before, ranging from dainty mini chandeliers to sports-themed pendants. Here are some ideas to help you personalize the lighting in your kid's room.
Before hitting the closest lighting retail outlet in search of the perfect child lamp or ceiling light fixture for your child's bedroom you need to first become familiar with the basic concepts of effective lighting. In any kid room you need to consider ambient, task and accent lighting.
While planning and designing your child's room lighting needs, there are safety issues to consider first. The safest kinds of lighting fixtures to use in your child's room are central ceiling fixtures, child wall lights and track lighting. The advantage here is that these types of fixtures won't get damaged if your kids start playing around the room. Try to keep any light sources out of your child's reach is always a good way to prevent light burns. In any case if you can't avoid it then any light that their little hands can reach should preferably be fitted with compact fluorescent bulbs which are cool to touch Use track lighting or wall lights instead of table lamps since they always get knocked over and believe us, always us. When installing electrical wall socket, see that there are no loose cords hanging around and cover the empty sockets to ensure prying fingers can't put it inside. Also avoid low pendant lights. They can be a hazard during pillow fights or when jumping on the bed.
First up in the category in lamps for kids rooms are licensed lamps. You can find these anywhere and you know them when you see them. These are the lamps featuring favorite characters from cartoons, TV shows and movies. From Disney to Nickelodeon, there is a lamp for every child's favorite character. These is a great choice for the child who adores princesses or Sponge Bob. Another good thing about licensed lamps for kids' rooms is that they are considered a novelty item that could become a future collector's item.
For most adults, the night is not a time to worry or fear. For children on the other hand, they often worry about monsters and unfamiliar noises at night. They do not know that the noise outside their window is not the bogeyman trying to come in and snatch them away; or that the creaking sound is the floorboards, not a monster tiptoeing to eat them.
