Whether you are buying children's lightshades for your own home or to give away as gifts, there are some important things you need to consider. First of all, what color is the window? Depending on the room in which you live, this could be an important deciding factor. In most cases, childrens' rooms tend to have standard colors such as green and brown.
In addition to the color, you also need to think about the texture. Metal childrens’ lightshade might not be the best choice for a child's bedroom. Not only will it be uncomfortable for a child to stand under, but it will also be hot in summer and cold in winter. A wooden or plastic lightshade on the other hand will probably be too rough for the skin. Of course, you can always choose a shingle that has a soft grip so your child will be safe and comfortable no matter what the weather is outside.
Another important factor to consider is the safety aspect. You don't want to purchase any type of childrens' lights that could be dangerous. First of all, look for products that have good safety ratings. If the lights are only good for the lower part of the window, they won't be able to meet the safety requirements set by your state. Look for childrens' lights rated up to UL-rated.
Also, take a look at what type of kids lighting is installed around the lightshade. Are the bulbs wired in or attached to the lightshade? If the light needs to be operated by something, such as a battery, you'll need a device that can operate safely on a child.
Finally, you should consider how easy the installation is. Lightshades can be extremely complex in design, so you definitely want to make sure you're going to be able to install it yourself. Don't assume you can because some may suggest it. Even if you think you can, don't do it. A broken light shade can cause serious injury to a child.
Choosing the right children's lightshade isn't difficult. Just pay attention to these three areas. Your child's eyes are your biggest concern. Then, consider the size and color of the shard and how it will fit into your child's bedroom. Finally, consider how easy the installation will be. If you have any doubts about any shard, ask a professional to install it for you.
