Traditional children's lamps feature a wide range of designs that a child would usually love. They're normally gender-specific. For boys, there might be trains, cars, planes, sports, and jungle as themes. If you have a baby girl, you'll have an easy time finding a lamp adorned with pictures or shapes of flowers, butterflies, fairies, candies, and ribbons. You can choose one that would match with the overall design of the room. You can also pick one that shows his or her favorite thing.
Most adults have vivid memories of what their childhood room was like. Kids' rooms are a very special and safe space, filled with all of the memories of childhood. While lighting for children's rooms is often an afterthought, it can be a way to truly reflect your child's unique personality and interests.
Before purchasing a child lamp be sure to look for one's that won't tip easily, produce too much heat or is too heavy in the event that your child does manage to knock or pull it off her desk or table top. A good child lamp is well-balanced and able to be fastened securely onto a desk. If your child has a computer in her room, you'll want to ensure that she has ambient as well as task lighting that's compatible. The trick here is to use task lighting to illuminate what is on the monitor and use an ambient light source to eliminate any contrast.
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.
Nightlights are also very useful in a kid's room. If your kid hasn't adjusted yet to sleeping alone in total darkness, a nightlight is a good help. It's also a great light fixture to prevent you from tripping when you need to check in on or feed them.
