If there’s one space in the home where you can really let your imagination soar and embrace your inner child, it's your little one’s room. Children’s bedrooms present the opportunity to bring dreams to life through decoration and design, and lighting in particular, can add a touch of enchantment. Go beyond mere illumination with three of our favourite novelty lighting ideas.
The ultimate in whimsy and charm, fairy lights are a must for creating that magical feeling. Adorn the ceiling or drape them along the bed's canopy to create a starry night effect. Warm white LED fairy lights give the room a cosy glow, while those with a flickering function mimic the magic of fireflies dancing in the night sky. As an added bonus, the gentle glow they produce also acts as a nightlight for younger tots.
LED rope lights are another great option for creating an enchanting look. This type of light typically consists of a long cylindrical tube housing an internal light source. Their flexible nature and lightweight make them ideal for wrapping around bed posts and headboards or outlining bookshelves and closets. They can also be made into fun shapes and are available in varying lengths and colours.
The mesmerising glow of a glitter lamp is not only fun to look at, but soothing too. It’s even thought that they can help make children feel drowsy before bedtime as they stare at the hypnotic swirls of glitter. These types of lamps are made up of a glass housing filled with mineral oil, water, and glitter. The Eurolux range is available in pink, red, green, blue and clear.
