Top 5 Lights for Kid’s Bedrooms
Top 5 Lights for Kid’s Bedroom
Lighting is important in every room in the house. It changes the entire feel of the room and affects our mood more than we often give it credit for. Every parent will know the importance of lighting options, we learn this from the beginning as we try and change a nappy at night without waking our sleeping babe, or doing a night feed whilst trying to keep bubba chilled out and ready to go back to sleep (fingers crossed). As they grow older the same rules apply, bright lights do not set the right mood for them to wind down and a lot of children are not too keen on the dark. Some plug-in night lights are so bright I worry planes would try and land, so here are a few choices that not only offer great mood lighting but look fab even when they’re not being used.
from Mini Maison
This sleepy star lampshade by Dutch designers Hartendief is a wonderfully dreamy addition for your nursery or child’s bedroom. Featuring a sleeping star by day, but at night when the light goes on, the lamp is transformed into a night-time ocean-scape with two bears, fox and deer sailing away in their moon shaped boat, into the starry night sky. Pure magic.
There is a swan design too which is equally gorgeous, but the sleepy star made me smile most, it reminded me a little of the owl and the pussycat.
from Bobby Rabbit
Meet Ricemonster night light, a sweet little bedside friend by London-based brand Noodoll, available from Bobby Rabbit. Bobby Rabbit offers several great night lights, but Ricepuffy is my favourite because of his little cute horns. He is a sleepy monster with the cutest freckles! He comes inside a fun gift box, which makes him the perfect present for little ones everywhere. Switch him on and watch him glow for 60 minutes before switching off automatically, thanks to his special energy-saving timer.
from Ferm Living
Space is going to be a big trend in kid’s rooms this year, so why not turn their room into a little spaceship, your kid as the astronaut, exploring new planets and small moons. This wall lamp creates an exciting environment for your kid while spreading a gentle, indirect light for the bedtime stories or quiet mornings. It is also available in blue!
Bright Corner Shop
Inspired by the Welsh stone villages this Cottage light is made from Birch Plywood, bringing a bit of nature into your home with a simple, elegant feel. Great as a nightlight and as a decorative piece adding a warm, cosy glow to a corner of your child’s bedroom or nursery.
Wolf and Badger
A DIY project inspired by origami. Build together or your older child might want to have a go on their own (head sup it’s tricky, there are about 42 pieces), what a great project! They can enjoy bringing to life one more member in your home. Make sure to take a few hours to assemble your Emperor Penguin paperlamp – best results always require some dedication! He will stand at 70cm tall and is available in plain white too.
OWL paperlamps is a design brand created in 2016 by Hugo and Teresa, in Lisbon, Portugal. Their most recent designs have focused on large, endangered mammals. The selection tends to raise awareness about wildlife and simultaneously recreates the animals in a playful and abstract manner. The designs trigger stories and are conceived as fun lighting objects with a hint of personality.
