Finding the perfect lighting for your children’s rooms is more important than you might think. It’s easy to overlook the design and functionality that lighting will play into a room’s atmosphere, but in a multifunctional room like a child’s room, you want to take a proactive approach.

In this blog post, we’ll go over several lighting solutions and ideas that can make your kids’ rooms not only trendier, but also brighter.
Types of Lighting Solutions
Before you decide on the type of lighting solution you want for your children’s rooms, we suggest analyzing the natural lighting in the room before tackling how you wish to mechanically light it. After you do that, you’re ready to pick a lighting solution! Here’s a breakdown on the types of lighting solutions there are and how each is used for any given effect.
Ambient Lighting Solutions
Ambient lighting focuses on improving the overall atmosphere and glow of the room by using strategic lighting fixtures. Ceiling lights are the best example of ambient lighting solutions, as they provide delicate and subtle illumination. These types of lighting fixtures include chandeliers, pendants, lanterns, recessed lighting, flush mounts and more.
Task Lighting Solutions
Task lighting is exactly what it sounds like: it is used to illuminate or highlight a space used for a specific task. For example, if your child likes to do homework, read or other activities in their room, we suggest task lighting options such as wall sconces, table lamps or floor lamps.
Accent Lighting Solutions
Accent lighting is used to illuminate specific architectural and design elements. For example, if you have a piece of art or a family photo you’d like to have a light on at all times, you can strategically choose picture lighting or a ceiling light fixture to highlight the art piece or photo.
Pro tip: We suggest including ambient and task lighting into every single room in your home, especially your children’s rooms. By including these two types of lighting solutions, your children will have a natural glow to their room on top of additional task lights that will help them accomplish their everyday goals. Accent lighting is just as important, but can be more of an afterthought if your budget doesn’t allow for it.
Keep Safety In Mind
Children don’t always have proper safety precautions at the top of mind. Trust us, we have parent customers who have seen a few nerf gun fights and “throwing balls in the house” incidents.
We recommend staying away from breakable material such as glass or pottery, as those can easily shatter under the worst circumstances and can pose a threat to your children. If you have babies or toddlers, we recommend staying away from lighting fixtures that can easily be pulled or tipped over.
