Wild Imaginations: There are a few ways to subtly light a kid’s room at night so they don’t wake up in complete darkness and get scared. Glow in the dark stars can be stuck to the ceiling as seen in picture (1), or paint designs on the wall with glow in the dark paint (2). Another idea that doesn’t require any electricity is to put a SunJar (3) by the window. These are solar powered lights, and will automatically come on when it gets dark – plus it looks like a little sun is trapped in a jar 🙂
The most common way of dealing with the darkness is to have a simple plug night light. There are more fun options like using a stuffed animal which doubles as a night like. A popular one is the Cloud B Twilight Constellation Night Light (4) which is available from Amazon here.
To The Bathroom and Beyond! Another great lighting idea to have in the kids room is a battery powered lantern. If your child needs to go to the bathroom at night (and can’t reach the light switches) they can take the lantern with them.
Table Lamps: A table lamp on the desk will come in handy when they are drawing or doing any homework (5).
Fun Kids Bedroom Lighting Ideas: In our post Cool Bedroom Ideas for Kids we highlighted how cool it would be to fit fiber optics in the ceiling to create a constellation sky (6). Glow in the dark stars would be a simpler alternative. Another idea we highlighted in that post is to have a mood light sit on the floor up against a wall (7). This lets boys and girls choose what color to light up the room with. 1/2/3/4/5/6/7
