Traditional children's lamps feature a wide range of designs that a child would usually love. They're normally gender-specific. For boys, there might be trains, cars, planes, sports, and jungle as themes. If you have a baby girl, you'll have an easy time finding a lamp adorned with pictures or shapes of flowers, butterflies, fairies, candies, and ribbons. You can choose one that would match with the overall design of the room. You can also pick one that shows his or her favorite thing.
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.
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.
Nightlights are also very useful in a kid's room. If your kid hasn't adjusted yet to sleeping alone in total darkness, a nightlight is a good help. It's also a great light fixture to prevent you from tripping when you need to check in on or feed them.
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.
