Everything you need to know about choosing the right lighting for the children's & baby's room!
The lighting of the children's room is not only about the aesthetics of the space, but contributes daily to the mood, behavior and proper development of the children!
For this reason, choosing the right lighting for the child's or baby's room is of major importance.
In principle, we need to take into account the available natural lighting coming from the external environment, which also plays the primary role. Next comes the size of the space, as well as the age of the child. For the proper lighting of a children's room, it is necessary to have sufficient lighting fixtures. As the main light, it is recommended to use a ceiling light that is usually placed in the center of the room. It is good to combine it with a wall lamp or a table lamp that are usually placed next to the bed. Ideal for younger children who are afraid of the dark, are the night lights which are very useful for navigating the space.
The color temperature of light plays a very important role in the final result and the overall feeling it creates. When we choose warm light , i.e. below 3,000 K (Kelvin), then calmness and relaxation are promoted. Therefore, such a choice helps the child to rest pleasantly and relax more easily at the end of the day.
Each room has its own - at least one - ceiling light. For the main lamp in a children's room, we usually draw inspiration from toys, colorful and fun, which at the same time stimulate the child's imagination.
Placing a dimmer switch on the wall allows the light intensity to be adjusted according to the child's activity, if bedtime is approaching, etc.
An alternative solution is the wall lamps, they can decorate the children's room and create a unique atmosphere by choosing fun designs and colors. They can also be used as night lights, they emit a soft light to ensure your child the right lighting, so that he feels safe and sleeps peacefully! In addition, they are suitable as safety lights to facilitate the movement of the child or yours, in peace at any time during the night.
A table lamp, placed on the nightstand, desk or shelf, offers an interesting addition that beautifies a child's room. It is usually low in height and tends to be inspired by cute and child-friendly images. In order for it to be installed and used safely, the outlet needs to be covered in some way and access to it blocked. Also avoiding halogen lamps which develop a very high temperature and may burn a child's hands when touched. A different, alternative proposal is the choice of lights with batteries (always with a safe screw closure) or with a USB port for charging.
Children's desk lamps are intended to help children read more easily, with greater comfort and safety for their eyes. They achieve this by creating an atmosphere suitable for children to concentrate better. It is good that office lamps have a flexible neck and adjustable in terms of its inclination, so that there can be a better focus of the brightness.
In the children's room, as in any other space, extra hidden, small lights can be placed on the walls, in shelves or cupboards, which will not disturb the children and at the same time will offer them a greater sense of security at night!
