As you see, there are all sorts of kids' lamps that you can place in your child's room. Just as the styles and types differ, so do the prices in these lamps. The features and function of the lamp will determine the cost. If your child is old enough, it is always best to ask what type of lamp would they like and let them decide on the lamp or at least them help pick it out. This is a great way to let your child revel in his or her uniqueness.
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.
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.
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.
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.
