With the introduction of the Asian culture to various countries in the world, Oriental designs have become more appreciated by many. This includes home decorations. Paper lanterns are mostly used in countries like Japan and China. They now come in various colors and are simply adorable as lamps in a kid's room.
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.
You might need to get a clip-on lamp for your kid, too. This would be great for those nights when you need to read them a bedtime story. Clip-ons can be moved anywhere you need them. So they're very helpful when your child who's going to school needs extra light on his desk to do his or her homework or art project.
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.
