What is the emphasis on the choice of children's room lamps? Lighting design should not be careless

Luminturs Lighting


Choosing a lamp for kids, that can’t be careless, it can’t be said that choosing a small one is enough! First of all, the light should be soft, playful, and protect their eyesight, so as to create a warm and peaceful atmosphere in the room.

A space with multiple functions such as games, rest, storage, and learning is the real children's paradise, and the overall brightness of the indoor lighting should be higher than that of an adult room. In addition, the room also needs to have corresponding local lighting, so that the kids can read books, write homework, find books, find storage, or use richly shaped lamps to add childishness to the room. Different activities require different types of lighting, which is why different types of lamps have their own characteristics. Before choosing a lamp for your child, you first need to understand:

1. Lighting type-general lighting, functional lighting or atmosphere lighting (the lighting type is based on the different ways the luminaire projects light). When decorating a room with lights, it is important to understand the ways in which all kinds of lamps and light sources project light, and how to match them to meet the various needs of the room (light projection methods are divided into two types: directional and diffuse).

2. Lighting brightness-can energy-saving lamps be used? Do I need to configure a dimmer?

3. Lighting scheme-choose ideal lamps that are suitable for light, material, size, shape, and price, and meet the correct installation conditions.

General lighting: suitable for gaming areas

Lighting requirements

It is difficult for children to have a fixed place for play. The place where they play, write and read can be anywhere on the bed, table, and floor. Therefore, there should be bright lights in the entire room, that is, bright general lighting, to ensure that a certain amount of light is beneficial to their vision health.

Lighting method

1. Ceiling lamps with a higher safety factor are suitable as the main light source, but it is necessary to choose a lively and childlike shape as much as possible to make the indoor environment conform to the physiological characteristics of children. In addition, bright directional lights should be added to key areas.

2. Children's nature is lively and active. Therefore, safety must be considered first, followed by the choice of light, color and artistic modeling. 3. To illuminate the entire space, meet the brightness needs of each area, to adapt to the child's lively nature.

Tips: safety warning

1. Choose upward-illuminating lamps. Especially for infants and toddlers, the soft light that is scattered after reflection will not harm the eyesight of the kid who is used to staring at bright spots for a long time in the crib.

2. Be sure to fix the wire to the wall to prevent children from playing with it.

3. The bulb should have a protective cover. If the kid is still very small, it is best to choose a lamp with a closed lampshade, or add a protective cover for the bulb. In addition, avoid placing floor lights in children's rooms to reduce the risk of electric shock.

Functional lighting: suitable for reading and learning areas

Lighting requirements

The lighting for reading and learning requires concentrated light, soft, sufficient brightness, and no glare, so that the kid can concentrate on studying, avoid eye fatigue, and protect eyesight. The relationship between general lighting and local lighting should be handled well. If the background brightness is too low, the indoor brightness contrast will be too high, which will depress the atmosphere and cause visual fatigue.

Lighting method

1. The right angle. The local lighting on the desk is generally to install fluorescent tubes on the wall directly in front and above, and arrange desk lamps in the front left direction. At this time, it should be noted that the light distribution range and beam angle of the desk lamp should be appropriately wider. It is best to equip the fluorescent tube above with reflective lamps and choose the installation angle. These practices will help improve the illuminance and illuminance on the desk. The uniformity.

2. Add a standing lamp. If the child needs to read, write or stare at the fluorescent screen for a long time, lighting experts suggest that the brightness of the object and the surroundings should be maintained at 5:1. In addition to placing a desk lamp on the table, you should also place a standing lamp in the study, lighting the ceiling to ensure a balanced and sufficient ambient lighting.

3. Adjustable bedside lamp. Reading a story book for the kid before going to bed is a "compulsory" course for many parents. At this time, a bedside reading lamp is indispensable. But it should be noted that this light is best dimmable, and it is also the last light to be turned off when the parents leave the kid's bedroom.

4. Light distribution range. Table lamps or spotlights are commonly used for general lighting during reading and study. In this case, attention should be paid to the light distribution range of the lamp.

Tips: choose the right location

1. One of the main principles is that the light should be illuminated from the left (for "lefties" it is from the right). The direction of the light must be able to change.

2. The desk lamp is a standard work lighting device and must be placed in the correct position required. If you are using a power-saving lamp, you must make sure that the light reflected by it is uniform, and it must be "not hot" and "no dead spots".

3. While eliminating glare, it is also necessary to configure lighting for eye fatigue to let the eyes rest, and use indirect lighting to create a hazy atmosphere for the eyes to rest, and to eliminate the burden on the eyes as much as possible. Spotlights can not only focus on illuminating the decorations, but also create a rich space and visual appeal of light and dark.

Atmosphere lighting: suitable for sleeping areas 

Lighting requirements

The bright but not dazzling lighting in the room can make the room warm and safe, and it is very helpful to eliminate the fear of children when they are alone.

Lighting method 1. Soft light source. Preschool children sleep for a long time and often times. A good sleeping environment should be created for kids in the children’s room: the lighting should be as soft as possible and the reflective light source should be arranged. It is best to use wall lamps instead of cabinet lamps or floor lamps. It is not only warm and soft, but also can prevent the wires scattered on the ground from posing a threat to their safety.

2. Convenient to get up at night. Install a low-wattage night light in the kid's bedroom or install a regulator on other lamps, which is convenient for them to use when they wake up at night. You can also choose a special lamp plug that can be directly plugged into the wall socket.

Tips: Appropriate reminder

1. The bedside lamp in the children's room is convenient to use when going to bed, but if the kid often lies or sits on the bedside and reads, it will affect their eyesight. Parents should be reminded.

2. The lamps and lanterns selected for atmosphere lighting should give children a relaxed and interesting light in shape and color, so as to expand their imagination and stimulate their interest in learning. Therefore, parents may wish to work with them to choose the lamps in the children's room, so that the kid can enjoy the fun of picking up the lights independently.

3. The socket should have a cover. In view of the kid's nature to climb everywhere, it is necessary to pay attention to whether the power socket in the children's room is safe. General power sockets do not have a cover. Therefore, for their safety, they should choose a socket with a fuse cover, or a socket that can automatically close the power hole when the plug is unplugged.
