How should I set up the lighting in my nursery?

Don't Forget About the Lighting

When you are planning your lighting scheme for your nursery, there is more to consider than you might think. First ask yourself a few questions. How much natural light is there? How will the window treatments affect the natural light? What type of overhead light do I need? Do all areas of the room have sufficient lighting? These are just some of the items you will need to address.

Keep window treatments simple so plenty of light comes in during the day. This will make the room seem brighter and create a more positive environment.

When choosing a ceiling fixture, anything with a dimmer will provide more versatile lighting. You can control the amount of light in the room to correspond with your activity. Lamps are a great way to supplement existing lighting or to light only one area at a time. For example, you can include a lamp near the changing table or next to the glider/rocker. Some smaller lamps, like the ones from Cal Lighting, feature adorable designs that will also contribute to the nursery décor.
