Nursery & kids lighting

Lighting is an important aspect of children's room design. It affects the physical and emotional comfort of young family members and therefore their harmonious development. We have prepared 5 useful tips on children's lighting design, which will help in creating a favorable environment for the life and growing up of kids. Also, we analyzed the types of lighting and the effectiveness of using each of them.

General advice on lighting design

Do not leave dark corners. Poorly lit areas of the room "eat up" the space. In the process of playing, the child moves around the room: it is undesirable for him to strain his eyesight.

Use track systems for general lighting. Install them around the entire perimeter of the room: they will evenly illuminate the room and create a comfortable environment for games and relaxation.

Provide localized light by the bed. We recommend using table lamps or sconces. If you install a dimmer, then the lamp at the head can act as both a reading lamp and a night lamp.

Take care of the safety of the child. Lamps should be out of reach. Sockets and switches - hide under special plastic boxes.

Choose models of lamps made of environmentally friendly materials. We recommend using LED lamps for all areas of the children's room.

Natural light

Natural lighting is most preferable for the development of the child. First of all, you need to take care of the free access of sunlight to the room. To do this, try to follow the following recommendations:

When choosing a room for a nursery, pay attention to which side the windows face. The most optimal options for observing the child's regimen are the east and southeast sides: in the morning, sunlight will illuminate the room, and in the evening natural twilight will form.
If the windows face west, then the situation is exactly the opposite: in the morning there will not be enough sunlight, and in the evening it will interfere with rest. Therefore, you will have to use thick curtains or blinds with bright artificial lighting - this will allow you to properly adjust the lighting in the interior of the children's room throughout the day.

Artificial lighting

The main rule to follow when choosing artificial lighting is the obligatory presence of evenly diffused soft light throughout the space. In the children's room, there should not be sharp, too-bright lighting, or dark corners - only smooth light transitions are allowed.

The location and number of fixtures will depend on the size of the room. Now designers recommend conditionally dividing space into zones. In accordance with age, the child's room is divided into 3 main areas - work, play, and recreation areas, and each of them has separate requirements for artificial lighting.

Central light

In the nursery, it is important to combine the central lamp and several lamps (sconces, floor lamps) that will illuminate the work or play area. The main task of artificial light sources is to ensure the uniform distribution of soft lighting. We recommend placing track system along the perimeter of the ceiling - the tracks will evenly illuminate the room and all corners.

Work light

We recommend installing lamps below the level of the child's eyes. If there are shelves above the desktop, use spotlights.

Calculating the illumination of a children's room

When developing a project, it can be difficult to understand how much light will be needed in a room and certain areas. To avoid shortages or overruns, a detailed calculation is necessary. What is meant by illumination calculation? – Determining the number of required fixtures and their characteristics for the room.

It is quite difficult to perform it on your own - the procedure requires a deep understanding of the specifics of light and certain knowledge. We make an accurate calculation of illumination using modern equipment. We are ready to make a calculation and selection of equipment for your project for free.

What do you need to do this?
  • Send us a drawing or plan of the premises for which you need to calculate by e-mail:
  • Indicate the color scheme of the walls and floor, the height of the ceiling, and indicate the purpose of the premises.
  • Please select and specify the models of luminaires from our catalog that you plan to install.
As a result, you get a detailed technical description and a project manager.
