Fun Lighting Ideas for Kids’ Rooms

A child’s bedroom is often the place where homework is done, books are read and games are played. Adequate light is important for a child’s eyes, so why not make lighting fun? Ditch the desk lamps and outdated ceiling lights and create cool lighting effects your child will be sure to love. There are many ideas to fit your child’s them and room décor. Not sure where to start? Here are some ideas.

Paper Lanterns

Paper lanterns are a fun and inexpensive way to brighten a room. They come in a variety of colors and are a great idea for dividing larger bedrooms, particularly shared bedrooms. For a decorative effect, paper lanterns can be suspended from varying heights. This effect works especially well for sloped ceilings.

Stained Glass

You can buy a stained glass light fixture to brighten up your child’s bedroom. However, if you’re the artistic type and have a few hours to spend on a craft project, you can make one yourself as well. With some peel and stick lead, paint, paint brushes, scissors and light fixtures, you can be on your way to a fun and colorful lighting idea.

There are many how-to guides online. You can also look online to get an idea of the type of pattern or theme you want to use. This will determine the paint colors you will need to buy. Although this idea takes some time and effort, it’s a fun art project that most children will enjoy.

Get Crafty

Along the same lines as the stained glass light fixture, if you can’t find the right fixture to fit your child’s bedroom décor or preferences, then create your own light. Kids will enjoy making their own light and there are many how-to guides available online to help your child create a lampshade or light that he or she will enjoy using. They come in a variety of themes, such a ballet tutus for girls’ bedrooms or bugs and sports for boys. With some adjustments, you can create your own unique decoration as well. You can also customize these light fixtures with your child’s name to create a personalized look.

Lava Lamp

This blast from the past is still a hit with adults and children alike. This old standby from the 1960s contains blobs of colored wax. Children will love watching the blobs move inside the liquid. Lava lamps come in a variety of colors, so you can easily find one to match the room’s décor. This decorative novelty item can be purchased online for under $20, making it an inexpensive and fun lighting idea for your child’s room.
