From shedding a little light during story time to middle-of-the-night bathroom breaks to finding their way to mommy and daddy’s room after a bad dream, lighting is essential in a nursery. Luckily for you, we’ve got a great variety of baby lighting waiting to be discovered.
Avoid harsh lighting at all costs. Babies’ eyes are sensitive to bright lights so opt for soft, diffused lighting instead of anything with halogens or exposed bulbs. Think about installing a dimmer; being able to turn the lights up or down gives you greater control over the lighting in the room. As a bonus, you can sneak in for late night diaper changes and check-ins without fully waking your little darling up.
A ceiling light is a great choice for a baby’s space as it keeps the fixture up and out of the way of grabbing hands and wobbly walkers, reducing the risk of having a floor lamp topple over. It also gives you a chance to make a visual statement higher up in the space, which adds dimension and interest to the room.
A table lamp is a smart choice to keep on a side table next to a rocking chair. Perfect for nursery rhymes and story times, as soon as your baby drifts off to slumber land, it’s lights out with the quick flick of a switch. This type of lighting also comes in handy when brighter light is needed close to a changing table (don’t worry, we’ll spare you the details!).
Get creative; lighting doesn’t always have to be practical. For a little whimsical ambiance, check out our lamps with cut out designs. Featuring little holes through which diffused light can shine, these lamps will add a magical shimmer to your little one’s space.
Don’t forget a nightlight; every well-planned nursery needs one. The perfect solution for adding a gentle, reassuring glow to their space, these nighttime light sources provide just the right amount of illumination for your child to feel safe and secure in the dark. Choose from our adorable array of nightlights to find the one that will soothe your little sleeper whenever they wake up in the middle of the night. They also come in handy when you want to check in on your sleeping baby without having to turn on a bright light.
