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.
Ambient light is the kind of light that fills the whole room. Be sure to add a sufficient amount of ambient light for the safety and comfort of your child. A ceiling light fixture is a great source of ambient light. Task lighting is the kind of lighting that brightens a particular area. Such lighting is ideal for desktop use as it doesn't cause glare and eyestrain. A decorative child lamp is most often ideal for both desktop and bedside use.
