KIDS ROOM LIGHTING IDEAS
While planning the lighting for the kid’s room it’s very important to know that the mood radiated by the lights should be a cheerful one. Soft hues which are not too harsh on the eyes should be adopted especially if it’s a toddler. Kids usually prefer lights which they can associate with some stories that they read or some cartoons they see, which are mostly soft shades of blue or pink. The added advantages of these colors are that they are reflective colors and therefor even a low illumination light can sufficiently glow up the rooms.
A READING LAMP IS ALWAYS HANDY:
A reading lamp is a necessity in the kid’s room. After all story telling is a very important part of the parents’ interaction with the kids and this should be a period that the kids enjoy and drift into sleep. The desk lamps should be sufficiently lit up but not too bright as to keep the kids awake.
HAZY PAPER LANTERN:
Paper lanterns in light shades of blue or violet can be suspended in the kids’ room and kept lit throughout the night so that the room does not go pitch black at night. These paper lanterns with low wattage bulbs inside them are cheap and can be home made. Kids are also sometimes scared when they wake up in the middle of the night and cannot see anything. In such a case the faint paper lamps can be comforting.
NIGHT LIGHTS IN KIDS BATHROOM:
Keeping a night light lit in the kids bathroom also comes in handy if they have a sudden urge to access the loo. Kids should be prevented from handling switches and plug-in sockets until they are matured enough to know about the potential dangers. As such keeping lights lit in places where they are expected to go in the middle of the night is always a good idea.
KIDS FRIENDLY TABLE LAMPS:
Table lamps can not only light up the room, but also add to the décor of the room. Kids love table lamps depicting their favorite cartoon characters. Matching these table lamps with the original color of the walls can lend a very appealing air to the room.
LETTING THE KIDS DESIGN:
We can act adults and prep up the room any which way we deem appropriate, but it’s always better option to let the kids themselves have a say in the entire set up of the room. We should let them decide what are the colors on the wall going to be and which are the paintings going up on the wall. The color of the lighting should also be left to them, just keeping in mind that we should always know what’s best for them.
Lighting up a kid’s room is a tricky business. We somehow have to assume what’s good for our kids. Involving them in the process makes it a lot more easier and sensible and ends up becoming a family activity which can bind the family together.
