Lighting Children’s Rooms

During the first six years of your child’s life, your child’s brain is like a sponge. Your child’s room should inspire them and get their creative juices flowing. Here’s how you can find the right lighting fixtures to design your child’s bedroom.


A big room provides you plenty of lighting options. You can implement ceiling lighting fixtures, floor lamps, and more. However, you can get creative with small rooms too. Stringed lights look charming in a children’s room, and small spaces often only need lighting fixtures like desk lamps or wall sconces. Too many lighting fixtures can make rooms look small, but not enough lighting can have the same effect.


Rambunctious children who run around their room a lot need different lighting options—floor lamps, reading lamps, night lights, etc. It’s important to keep in mind that kids are kids and will inevitably forget to turn off lights. By having different options for them, you don’t risk a lighting burning out and your child being engulfed by total darkness. A variety of lighting fixtures is a safety measure.

Hanging Pendants

Hanging lighting fixtures can be a great option for ultra-hyper kids who tend to bump into pieces of furniture like desk lamps and floor lamps. If hung high enough, you don’t have to be concerned with your child jumping and hurting him or herself. We recommend that rooms with an 8-foot ceiling should have lighting fixtures hung 12 to 20 inches from the ceiling.
