Although the temptation might be to place the lights squarely in the child's room, you may want to consider placing them in other parts of the house as well. For example, if your child is liable to go to the kitchen during the night, then having one to illuminate the kitchen will mean they can prepare a snack without danger. The same can be said of the bathroom. If your child needs to take medication, then ones placed in the bathroom should make it easier for your child to actually see what tablet they currently have in their hands.
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.
A dimmer switch is another good feature to have in a kid room. Such a switch allows you to brighten the room when required and then lower the light at bedtime. The safest kinds of ambient light fixtures to use in your child's room are wall scones, recessed fixtures and track lighting. The advantage here is that these types of fixtures won't get damaged if your kids start rough housing whereas another type of child lamp may. Also keeping any light sources out of your child's reach is always a good way to prevent burns.
