Decorating a nursery is one of the most enjoyable design projects we do in our homes because we can be a bit more whimsical and have fun in the nursery. Lighting fixtures for the nursery can be both functional and light hearted at the same time. Here are some great tips on lighting for the nursery. Enjoy!
Lighting is an important element in nursery decor; keep it in mind when decorating the room. If you are doing a frilly nursery for a girl, a small chandelier would be perfect.
A modern style nursery needs modern lighting. An artichoke style shade in white is crisp and clean and can outlast the nursery years into childhood.
Nurseries are the perfect places for whimsical lighting. Love this bird cage chandelier that is decorated with charming birds.
Like other bedrooms, nurseries benefit from a mix of lighting options and dimmers. A table lamp is good for task lighting or reading stories, while a chandelier makes for stylish overhead light.
A swing arm wall sconce can give you several lighting options depending on where the light is focused. Small lights around the room work for different tasks.
A light next to or near the changing table will be much appreciated for those middle of the night changes. Even a small gooseneck desk lamp would provide enough light for the task.
A floor lamp, tucked in corner or next to the glider or chair, is a great idea for ambient light for a nursery. Colourful paper lanterns can also be a charming lighting option for a nursery.
Add stylish table lamps near the crib and changing table for task lighting. Dimmers are always a smart idea to keep lighting at the right level in the nursery. Interested in more lighting ideas for your home? Check out Arcadian Lighting for some inspiration. Images: ( 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 )
