Besides the bed, kids lighting is perhaps the most critical element of your child’s bedroom; desk and table lamps will brighten up dull spaces – and help to keep your child’s eyesight in top shape!
Types of Kids Lamps
Choosing the right type of lighting for children’s bedrooms can help to freshen up your child’s style with bold pops of color.
- Teens and Kids Desk Lamps: Make your child’s homework space fun, stylish and well lit with a chic desk lamp! To keep your child feeling energized and focused through late-night sessions, go for pops of warmer hues like red and yellow.
- Teens and Kids Table Lamps: Opt for a rad table or nightstand lamp to make your child’s bedroom feel warm and inviting – even at night.
How to Style Kids Lamps
Kids lamps should feel as fun and playful as your child’s personality, so look for unexpected designs that pack a lot of charm (think red lamps, pink lamps, elephant lamps and even owl lamps!). When you find a piece you and your child love, double it up! Placing two of the exact same lamp on opposite sides of a desk or nightstand will create a splash of bold style and easy symmetry.
Where to Place Kids Lamps
When it comes to placement, classic room layouts will keep kids lamps on the desk and nightstand, but for bold style, don’t be afraid to go the unconventional route! Consider a chic ottoman with a few of your child’s favorite books stacked on top of it; placing the ottoman in a corner (near an electrical outlet) and setting a table lamp on the books will create a refined appeal – and unique aesthetic. And speaking of books, why not also accessorize one of the shelves of your child’s bookcase with a kids table lamp? When sandwiched in between your child’s favorite classics, even a ‘boring’ table lamp will deliver a whimsical literary charm.
How to Choose the Right Color of Kids Lamps
Also, pay attention to the color of the surface on which you plan to place your child’s lamps. A white surface pairs will contrast well with a dark-colored lamp (as a black surface will contrast well with a light-colored lamp), while the cool temperate of an aqua or pink lamp can balance out the lighter tones of a maple wood surface.
