The right lighting in the nursery is one of the most important aspects that parents have to do when designing a space for the baby. Children in the child spends most of his time. Is its gaming, office and shelter, respectively, the influence of the environment greatly affects the mental and physical development. What has a greater influence on the growing organism than light?
We asked interior designer Svetlana Yurkova to talk about the basic nuances that need to pay attention to when furnishing a child’s room lighting.
You first need to choose which room to take for the baby. For anybody not a secret that natural light is the best, especially for the rapidly developing young body. If possible, it is preferable to locate the nursery in a room whose Windows face East or South-East.
So you from a very early age will teach him the correct mode of the day, because the light will fall into the window with the sunrise and light up the room until evening.
The main thing in this situation is to choose the right curtains, you may have to hang them in two layers — a denser, if you need to protect against too bright light, and translucent tulle a positive and calm colors.
Room on the North or West side will give parents a greater challenge. Blackout curtains on the Windows in this location are contraindicated, because with a lack of light can make children cranky and worse to acquire new information.
However, sunlight child is not enough. In children it is worth thinking about the sources of artificial lighting. First and foremost, you need to strike a balance and remember that too much light irritate sensitive children’s vision, as incorrectly selected lamp can exacerbate this effect.
For example, the child to purchase a shiny glass or crystal chandelier. It casts a bright glare, and can even prevent the formation of view. Also, do not set the child a fluorescent light — it promotes more rapid fatigue. For the Central lighting of the room is best to choose a matte covering a lamp shade of neutral colors, with a semicircular shape and a llama with a warm glow.
The same lighting could be in the play area and work area should be install a separate light source with a colder light. If at your Desk use a Desk lamp, it must be put on the left side for right-handers, respectively, on the right side for those who write with the left hand. This lamp must be protected by shade to bright light did not hit in the eye. It is also useful to have a table lamp was flexible and fixed stem. In this case, the student will be able to adjust the lighting of your desktop. If you want to avoid the clutter of objects on the table, just set the light spots in shelf above the Desk. This will provide bright and uniform illumination of the working surface clear.
Often children are afraid to sleep or to sleep in the dark. Such cases need to install a small lamp by the bed baby. It is important that the color and the light was not troubled by the vision and did not disturb baby sleep. Today in the market there are a wide variety of nightlights in the shape of animals, stars, etc. Models for these kinds of lamps allow you to put them on the surface, to hang on the wall or hang from the ceiling. The light from the nightlight should go soft and diffused.
If in addition to the main light and nightlight you want to add additional light sources, think about led tapes, lamps-projectors, and other novelties in the lighting market. For example, the smallest member of the family will be pleasantly surprised lamp that projects a starry sky on the ceiling or the flashing lights a fun color dynamic chandelier.
Choosing lamps for children, it is important to pay attention to his safety, because children are curious and can easily get hurt if they climb to watch, how is this glowing thing, or get burnt touching a hot honey.
To avoid this, it is best to give preference shatterproof, well-fixed lamps from harmless materials. You should also avoid unstable floor lamps, long cables and fixtures consisting of small parts. The outlet can be hidden in special protective boxes.
