How to Light a Nursery

The lighting in the nursery is just as important as that of any home, if not more. Your little indeed will spend most of his day in his room, either to sleep by day or night to play. The lighting in this room must be adapted to all these activities, however always remaining sweet to respect the sensitivity of young baby eyes. We help you ask the right questions.

Illuminate The Nursery

Since baby is more sensitive to bright light than adults are, the better for him is that his room is illuminated with a light similar to daylight. There are also simulation lamps dawn: they produce a light that seems natural and that intensifies gradually. This may be convenient to the baby alarm clock to go more slowly in near darkness to full light.
The spots tend to avoid. Since baby is often on the back, either in bed or when you change the light would hit directly into his eyes … The dimmers can be an interesting option: they allow you to pass light the deepest in the low intensity of a night, all on the same lamp. It remains interesting to multiply the light sources, as to illuminate the entire room for varying intensities, but also for decoration of the room!

A Night To Night

The type of luminaire which is especially found in the room of babies , of course, is the pilot . Toddlers, babies obviously not yet afraid of the dark, but this type of lamp allows parents to monitor their sleep without resorting to a more vivid and violent light that awaken them. The pilot is also handy when baby wakes up at night, especially if the only other source of light in the room is a ceiling more powerful. Later, the light produced by the pilot is there to reassure the little when falling asleep or at night, so he is not afraid of the dark. There are automatic pilot lights that turn themselves in at night, or with other integrated programmer for those wishing to accompany the child of a weak light only to fall asleep without that it stays on all night.

What type of bulb you choose?

The type of bulb to avoid in the nursery, it is the LED s. Often dazzling, they produce a blue light that can be dangerous to the particularly sensitive retina babies.

Halogen bulbs can be an attractive option, especially when they are low power (around 25W) to produce a soft light close to daylight. For the pilot, the bulbs of 5W are sufficient.

Baby Safety

If a young child has a bedside table, or any other handy lamp, lean on unbreakable and not burning bulbs, to avoid any risk if he gets ahead of the to touch. For the same reason, the lights can be interesting, or suspensions should be set sufficiently high so that baby can not reach them. Finally, better predict pilot light or low light bulb that cover the lampshade using a tissue to reduce the light intensity: this may fire.

The Room Decor

Lighting is an important design element, especially in the baby’s room when it comes to varying light sources. It is therefore possible to play on lamp types, shapes and colors.

Why not opt for example for funny and colorful garlands in low light? They can serve as pilot light or lamp light for yourself when baby wakes up at night.

Essential information to be used to illuminate the nursery are to prefer general way soft lighting rather than a bright light, but also be able to vary the light intensity so that it fits in all the activities of your child.
