Planning lighting needs for your child's room is a great opportunity for you to show off your playful side, do some personal bonding, and will also allow your children to be creative. Use all your imaginative ideas in the process but the important thing to remember here is it should reflect your child's personality, not yours. Talk to your child while making them part of your design work. Be interactive and if needed take them along with you while buying the lighting things. In any kid room you need to consider three types of lighting; ambient light which fills the whole room, Task lighting is the kind of lighting that brightens a particular area and finally accent lighting that adds a novelty touch to your child's room.
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.
