If you're planning on updating your kid's bedroom lighting, you're in for a fun project! There are more funky children's lighting options available today than ever before, ranging from dainty mini chandeliers to sports-themed pendants. Here are some ideas to help you personalize the lighting in your kid's room.
First up in the category in lamps for kids rooms are licensed lamps. You can find these anywhere and you know them when you see them. These are the lamps featuring favorite characters from cartoons, TV shows and movies. From Disney to Nickelodeon, there is a lamp for every child's favorite character. These is a great choice for the child who adores princesses or Sponge Bob. Another good thing about licensed lamps for kids' rooms is that they are considered a novelty item that could become a future collector's item.
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.
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.
If you have more than one child, and if your children share a room, then having night lights for kids will make it easier for the children to move around during the night while the other is sleeping. Perhaps one child needs medication that has to be administered during the night, or they want a night time snack. Whatever the reason, it will mean they can freely move around without having to worry that they are going to walk into something and hurt themselves.
