You might also look into putting night time lighting in your own room if your little child comes to your room frequently in the middle of the night due to bad dreams or nightmares. It's also wise to put them in the bathroom near the light switch so that children can see their way clearly to use the toilet any time during the night. One more spot you might like to place one is in the kitchen in order that little ones can easily see if they need to get a glass of water or juice at night.
Before hitting the closest lighting retail outlet in search of the perfect child lamp or ceiling light fixture for your child's bedroom you need to first become familiar with the basic concepts of effective lighting. In any kid room you need to consider ambient, task and accent lighting.
Accent lighting should be ideally situated to add to the room's comfort level. It is purely decorative in nature and can be used to highlight treasured accessories. In an infant nursery situation lighting is just as valuable to the parents as it is to the newborn. Since you'll be spending a considerable amount of time in your baby's room it's important that you have an effective ceiling light fixture as well as a decorative child lamp or two that gives off sufficient light. Such light is important when it comes to changing your baby or reading stories.
Although the temptation might be to place the lights squarely in the child's room, you may want to consider placing them in other parts of the house as well. For example, if your child is liable to go to the kitchen during the night, then having one to illuminate the kitchen will mean they can prepare a snack without danger. The same can be said of the bathroom. If your child needs to take medication, then ones placed in the bathroom should make it easier for your child to actually see what tablet they currently have in their hands.
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.
