Home lighting is very important to give home interiors the right look and depth. And where childrens room is involved, safety becomes the primary factor apart from beautifying the room. Also, childrens room should be lit keeping in mind that not only is illumination important. But it is also imperative to use the right mix and angle for creating better visibility so that the kids can do their homework and other tasks without straining their eyes.
Basically, like any other room, lighting in childrens room is also divided into three parts viz., ambience, accent and task. They can be explained further:
Ambience Lighting There is a whole lot of variety that comes under ambient lighting. To start with ceiling lighting is the most basic and common source of illumination, which can further be categorised into fitted lights which could be flush or recessed, and pendant lights which hang down from the ceiling. The choice of lights will depend upon factors like height of the ceiling, installation work required, etc. Flush ceiling lights take are leased space consuming. But both flush and pendant lights come in a wide variety to choose from with motifs and themes of cartoons, sports, music, etc.
Accent Lighting When you want to highlight a particular feature in the room, you would need to use accent lighting which focuses the throw of light on a particular object. For instance, you can try a ceiling mounted spot light to glow up a poster or a show piece in the room.
Task Lighting - Creating a snug atmosphere in your kids room in not enough, task lighting should also be handled properly so that children can do homework or read and enjoy their hobbies without harming their eyes. While standard desk lamps are a common choice, you could also select spotlights affixed to the ceiling for the younger children for safety reasons.
Above everything, the choice of lights apart from the essentials will also have to be according to your kids choice. You can obviously take into account the younger ones choice and take a decision when it comes to the price and safety factors. But above all, it is very important that the quality of the lights and the electrical parts used are not compromised at all. Also, make sure that you check the product that you buy before you actually make the payment. This should be practised in case of both online and retail purchase.
