Have you noticed that children lightshades are no longer just plastic and bend easily? The current trend is towards children's lightshades which are fitted with LED technology. If you don't have a clue about what lightshades are, here's a quick introduction: lightshades are the translucent covering which surrounds the entire lamp, excluding the shade. Today, there are different types of children's lightshades available for different occasions, which include: outdoor, indoor and emergency use.
When it comes to outdoor use, many parents think that children's lighting can be just any old shaded lamp. They can even think of buying any old lamp with a child-friendly cover. However, they are wrong! If you want to add an additional safety feature to your children's lighting, go for children’s lightshades which are made from toughened plastic.
Why plastic? This is because a plastic light shade is very easy to clean. It does not get rusted and it is also durable. If you use a regular lamp with a children's lightshade, the chances are that the child could be hurt if the lamp is dropped on the floor. Another reason why it's better to go for a plastic lightshade is that the plastic is slim and does not hang over your child's eyes.
Your childrens' room also requires childrens lighting which have a high intensity. This means that the light from the lamp has to be more powerful than normal in order to create an effect. Therefore, childrens lighting which have a higher intensity tend to be brighter than ordinary ones. The intensity of the light will ensure that your child is safe and if there are any dark corners where the light cannot be seen, then you will know that there is something behind them which needs to be investigated.
However, when choosing children's lightshades, it is essential to think about your child's age and temperament. Some children will like bright lights, while others will prefer subdued ones. Also, a child's sleeping habits will have a lot to do with the kind of light they like. Children who are used to sleeping in a dark environment will need more bright lights while those who are used to seeing bright lights will need more subdued lights.
If you choose to buy bright light for your child, you can use bulbs that can last up to 10 years. This will ensure that your child is able to see their light for a longer time. You can also use lights which are energy efficient. In this way, even if the child's energy cost increases because of the light, you will still be able to keep your costs down.
