Choosing Lighting for Kids' Rooms: Tips for Parents

Thinking about refreshing your children's room? Today there are a variety of special lamps on the market that can fit a children's room and create a stunning result. Gone are the days when children's room design was limited to traditional pink and blue themes. Today, sophisticated rooms in unisex colors such as gray, mint, and yellow are taking center stage. Lighting design is also evolving, featuring natural materials and clean designs that seamlessly blend with the room's decor. So, what's the right approach? Here are some simple rules to help you along the way. 

Adjust the lighting to the character of the room - while it's easy to be drawn to a lamp based on its beauty or design, it's crucial to consider its suitability for the room's purpose. The wrong light fixture can overwhelm the space or fail to illuminate the space correctly. If the space is limited, as is the case in urban homes, it is recommended to choose many hanging lamps such as, for example, our Oppo Ball, a high-quality LED lamp that gives a funky and cool vibe to any space while saving valuable floor space. Alternatively, consider a rainbow lamp, which adds a dreamy touch to any room.

Think about the needs of the room - children's rooms are typically filled with energy and need to accommodate a variety of toys, games, and activities. This consideration extends to the choice of lighting. What type of lamp can meet these diverse needs? There isn't a one-size-fits-all solution. You'll need both ample general lighting to brighten up the room and a focused mood lamp for quieter activities. For example, a teddy bear lamp emits a pleasant and soft glow, creating a familiar and comforting atmosphere.

Prioritize safety - although this is the final point, it should be the first thing on our minds! Safety, both for the home and its young occupants, should guide your decision-making process. Opt for lighting fixtures made from safe, natural materials and install them in areas where the risk of accidents is minimal. Table lamps like a globe lamp can sit securely on a bookshelf while sparking conversations about geography, travel, and various cultures for kids. It even has a dimmer! This way, as the day winds down, the gentle and soothing light will ensure a soft and pleasant environment for restful sleep and dreams of distant lands.
