Not dark night, kids! We choose lamps to the nursery of

As light in a nursery plays a special role, it is important that all lamps were picked correctly up here. They will create the comfortable atmosphere for the kid, will help it easier to fall asleep - without tears and nightmares.

“Looking in a ceiling...“

Lighting in a nursery, as well as in any other, begins

with the general ceiling light. Of course, is the most organic “children`s“ ceiling lamp which will serve not only an element of the general decor will fit into children`s space, but also to answer a number of requirements.

So, it is necessary to consider that newborns spend the most part of time lying, so, their eye will be involuntarily fixed up, on a chandelier. That is why bright lamps with open lamps or the direct light beam directed down are inadmissible. The general illumination of a nursery has to be sufficient, but at the same time soft and unostentatious that the baby did not feel concern and irritation, and its eyes were not exposed to the blinding action of lamps. With the same purpose the bed and a pelenalny little table should be placed away from the ceiling lamp. For nurseries lamps are presented in the following assortment.

Suspended lamps - suspensions with lamp shades and chandeliers, choosing which should be guided by height of ceilings and to consider growth of members of household. Suspensions of children`s design are most often calculated on one svetotochka, and many of them allow adjustment on placement height - mother at any time at discretion can lower the lamp shade below or raise higher the simple movement hands that is very convenient. Lamp shades are made of paper, fabric, plastic. Plastic the easiest to keep clean as they can be washed.

However (especially in the markets) should approaching

their purchase with care: some of them, heating up, can exhale an unpleasant “chemical“ smell. From the point of view of hygiene the lamp shade design which allows to remove easily from a framework fabric for washing is convenient. For nurseries lamp shades in the form of the multi-colored “Chinese small lamps“ decorated by amusing patterns, applications and suspended toys are offered. There are models in the form of the balloon under which the basket with the aeronaut - a bear cub settles down. The lamp shade - a hemisphere can turn into an umbrella which is held, for example, by a small fish, or in a parachute on which the clown goes down.

“Children`s“ chandeliers have

from one to three svetotochek, their plafonds (as option) the multi-colored hand bells or water-lilies directed up can represent. Also chandeliers with plafonds - the spheres which are completely closing a bulb will approach. You should not hang up in a chandelier nursery which plafonds are directed down, and also with suspension brackets from glass or crystal. Of course, they are beautiful, are poured and sparkle in all flowers of a rainbow that cannot but interest the baby. But nevertheless patches of light, a play of light and shadows can tire and overexcite kids. By the way, to chandeliers with plafonds from metal and plastic, unlike glass, the balls and other toys thrown by the child in a game fuse to a ceiling are not terrible.

Dispersion of the prices of chandeliers and suspensions very big. The most available - productions of Russia, Belarus. China. Poland, Turkey - can buy for only 500 - 800 rub. Suspensions with lamp shades from 100% cotton of the Italian trademarks Pali, ItalBaby, Erbesi, Baby Expert cost about 2500 - 3800 rub, ceiling lamps with wooden elements from Haba (Germany) will cost 3500 - 6000 rub

the Switch with the built-in svetoregulyator - a dimmer - will allow to change easily intensity of the general lighting in the room: to do light, depending on a situation, more brightly or more dimly. Besides functional convenience, use of a dimmer also is economic: he allows to achieve reduction of an expense of the electric power, prolongs service life of lamps and often allows to do without additional sources of the muffled light: desk lamps, floor lamps and night lamps. It is possible to operate lighting rotation of the rotary button or pressing of a key. But, perhaps, the most convenient switch for a nursery is the switch equipped with the remote control: it is possible to switch on and off light, to change its brightness silently and without getting out of a bed (good help for mother).

One more option - the laid on ceiling lamp (round, square, rectangular) which fastens directly to a ceiling. On the lower party multi-colored florets, fantastic or animation heroes and plots can be represented. The main advantage of such lamps - the bulbs closed from eyes of the kid, the comfortable light scattered or reflected from a ceiling and the low price - on average from 350 - 700 rub

More and more popular become ceiling spotlights and ceiling rail lamps on conducting tires. They represent the lighting system consisting of one or several light sources fixed on the basis (rail) of various configuration (along a straight line, around, on a spiral, wavy, etc.) which can be turned to focus light beams in different directions (as theatrical stages).

Lying in a bed, the kid with interest will watch the pictures shining and replacing each other under music. The soft diffused light and a quiet melody of “a magic lamp“ do not work annoyingly and are specially calculated on inspriyaty newborn babies. It is and still better if there is a possibility of adjustment of intensity of light, volumes of sound (or its full shutdown) and frequencies of the movement of pictures, and also the choice of sound fragments (melodies or sounds of the nature).
