Looking for the perfect lighting for your child’s room? With kids lamps, it’s all about striking the right balance between lights that work for playtime and learning, and nightlights that help soothe your little one to sleep. Create the perfect well-lit room with these tips for decorating with childrens lamps.
Step 1 – Decide on a Theme or Mood
Whether you’re on the hunt for a floor lamp, a table lamp or even a night light to complete your child’s bedroom, be sure to design the room based around your child’s unique interests.
Does your child have a love for fairytales and magic? How about filling your child’s room with decor designed to mimic a magical forest? This gold toadstool Heico lamp will provide a fun source of light during playtime or reading, and help lull your little one into a calm sleep as they drift off into dreams of pixies.
Whether it’s colouring in before bed, snuggling up in a pillow fort or reading their favourite Miffy story, this adorable Miffy lamp will feel right at home in your child’s bed or play room. With a dimmable LED, this lamp is versatile and can be adjusted depending on what activity your child is enjoying.
Step 2 – Think Practical Lighting
When designing your child’s room, think about what practical need the lighting will fulfil. In general, it’s best to opt for multiple light sources with lower wattage, such as childrens night lights.
Nightlights for kids are a great choice for bedtime, as they exude a soft, warm glow that’s perfect for storytelling with children. A baby night light with a low wattage will help you attend to and soothe your child in the night without startling them awake.
Step 3 – Consider Placement
When decorating your child’s room, consider where you will place your lighting. Avoid installing lights directly over the cot or bed, as this can create an unpleasant glare that makes it difficult to fall asleep. Instead, choose soft lights at face level.
Step 4 – Be Playful
Kids lamps tend to be more colourful and playful than grown-up lamps. While it can be fun to embrace a theme, don’t worry so much if the colours don’t all match up perfectly. Remember, it’s more important that your child enjoys their new room than for all the colours to harmonise perfectly.
