Lighting Solutions for the Kids’ Bedroom

Designing a kids bedroom can prove to be both a joy and a challenge! While it’s a great opportunity to get creative and highlight a space full of imagination and endless possibilities, striking a balance between whimsey and function requires a little forethought and planning.

Not only do kids spend a lot of time in their bedrooms, you want to make it a space that everyone can enjoy – a place that’s comfortable for them and not an eyesore when you walk by! This space should reflect the unique personality and interests of the little one living there- and a great lighting plan can help you achieve this!

We’ve put together a list of lighting solutions to help inspire your kids’ bedroom makeover.

Overhead Lighting

Located front and center, overhead lighting is a wonderful way to set the tone for the space. Modern? Whimsical? Playful? Feminine? Options are plentiful for overhead fixtures. Depending on where you live, you may skip the chandelier or pendant light option altogether and opt for a stylish fan with a light kit to keep air moving.

Sconce Lighting

Let their imagination run wild, and give them the functional lighting to make their dreams happen. Whether they are playing in bed, reading, drawing or making big plans for their future, wall sconces are a functional and stylish task lighting option that will be used for years to come.

Night Lights

Many children are not so fond of the dark, and that’s okay! In fact, coming up with a creative night light solution can not only help your child feel safe and secure at night, it can also be a way for them to add a little bit of their own personality. Perhaps a fun night light in the shape of a princess, unicorn, or dinosaur will not only give them peace of mind, but also a sense of pride as they “help” design part of their room.

Bedside Table Lamps

Bedside lamps have been the bedroom standard for decades. Selecting lamps in complementary colors or fun designs allow you to complete your lighting plan while still embracing your design. If a lamp is not your thing, or if you are looking for a more modern solution, consider wall sconces or hanging pendant lights!

Floor Lights

We love the flexibility of a good floor lamp. These can be strategically placed near reading nooks or play corners – providing the perfect amount of ambient lighting. A unique look to a bedroom.

Accent Lighting

Accent lighting adds elevated style and detail to the overall design of a room. Wall sconces, picture lights, even neon lighting in a design or word adds depth and character.
