Lights have come a long way, The very first lights for mankind were fire. Fire allowed humans to conquer the night, or for a little while. Next came lamps and torches fuelled by grease and a fibre wick. By 1879, electric bulbs were invented and the hold-on light was over. Plug-in wall lamps does not only help to keep away the dark, but also the creatures who may lurk in it. Choosing a light for your child can be an amusing activity for both of you.
Consider the child
What sort of light does the child need? A bedroom light? A plug-in night light or some other form of lighting? Narrowing down the types of plug-in lighting will help. If you choose to buy a night-light, then can you think of any kind of night-light? Night-lights can be in the form of creatures like turtles, characters from TV shows or cartoons, night-lights that look like candles or more. If you decide on a plug-in light, should the light be high and out of reach if the child is very young? Does the child like classic designs or prefers modern lighting? Would a wall sconce light work well? The décor of the room can help in making decision as well.
Check out the selection
Go to the lighting store and look around. Your child will be bound to find something that he or she likes. The work that you did in step one will help you both to narrow down the choices. You will be able to find many lights in the lights section of the store, including night-light, if that is what your child would like. Among all of the choices, you will be able to find affordable lamps that will work well as well as fit your budget.
Make sure that you look at kids' lamp shades as well. If you find a bedroom light, the lamp shade may not be sold. You may also find a lampshade that does come with the light which your child does not like. Picking out a kid's plug-in light can go a long way in helping your child to feel better at night as well as adding some style to the room.
