Now let's move from the benefits of a ceiling light fixture to that of the child lamp. When it comes to selecting a child lamp for a desktop consider one that not only compliments the décor of the room but is angled in such away that it avoids unnecessary stress on your child's vision. Positioning a child lamp so it shines directly on your child's desk or work area can cause glare and eyestrain.
Also a kid room decorative lamp or two at proper light that gives off sufficient light is important when it coming to changing your baby or reading stories. Instead of kid lamps, one can also opt for a track lighting which are quiet adjustable to lighten while changing babies nappies or reading bed time stories. Also track lighting can be adjusted, rotated to specific areas as the child grows. Older, school going children and teenagers may have slightly different lighting needs. For example, some older children may get scared in the night if the room is dark, which in that case installing a night light opposite corner of the room and not shining in your child's face to make them sleep is a good idea. Also growing children needs a balance of natural light and artificial lighting so operable skylights and windows will add charm to the 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.
If your child likes to read in bed consider an adjustable child lamp near her bedpost. What better way to encourage your children to wind down their day than to read? Reading will become more appealing to your child if you make the experience as comfortable as possible. If you wish to place a child lamp next to the bed make sure it lines up with your child's shoulder when she's sitting up ready to read. Lighting that comes from behind her shoulder and slightly to the side will be the best for her eyes.
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.
