Headlands Bell Pendant
The Headlands Bell Pendant is similar to the World Market one above, but the rattan color is a little lighter in color.
It’s also made in a larger version depending on the amount of space you have to work with in your nursery.
Larkspur Task Sconce
The Larkspure Task Sconce is truly one of a kind!
The outside is made of hand wrapped rattan and the edging comes in both tapered and wavey.
For a baby boy’s nursery, the tapered edge would work best, but for a baby girl’s nursery, the wavey version is just too darn cute!
Where do you hang sconces in a nursery? We love to see two of them hung on the outside of both sides of the crib.
Things to Consider While Shopping for Nursery Lighting
Should I Choose a Flush Mount Light Fixture or a Chandelier?
Before you start looking at nursery lighting fixtures, consider the space and layout of your baby’s room . It’s important to know where any light fixtures you choose will be placed so they don’t pose a safety risk to baby or get in the way while you’re walking around the room.
If you have 8 foot ceilings, unfortunately you’ll likely need to use a flush mount light if it’s going to be installed in the center of the room. Otherwise you’re at risk of knocking your head on the light every time you walk by.
If you have 9 ft ceilings or higher, you likely can hang a chandelier in your nursery, but be sure to still check the minimum height to ensure it won’t come anywhere below 6 1/2 feet from the floor.
What Type of Lighting Should Be in a Nursery?
The right amount of ambient lighting is crucial to creating a well-lit area in your nursery . It gives the illusion that your child’s room is larger than it actually is and helps create an inviting atmosphere.
Whether you choose a chandelier, flush mount, pendant or sconces, the type of lighting is actually determined by the light bulb you choose.
Avoid harsh, bright lighting in baby’s nursery. Using a warm, soft white light bulb will be easier on baby’s eyes!
Bonus points if you can add a dimmer switch to lower the brightness, if you’re rocking baby to sleep.
