Whether you’re looking for a clear path to the bathroom at night or need to keep scary monsters at bay, there’s hundreds of options to choose from when it comes to night lights and night light bulbs.
What Kind Do You Need?
From a soft, ambient glow to bright LED tasks lights, which night light you need is based on where in the house it will be.
For the Little Ones
Unlike harsh overheads that shine light throughout the entire room, plug-in night lights are a great option for tip-toeing in to check on the kids. Choose an incandescent night light for a warmer feel in the nursery or children’s room. Kid-specific night lights are plentiful with options including familiar character faces to lights that project galaxies and sea life onto the ceiling.
Create a Safer Trip to the Bathroom
Night lights aren’t just for kids, however. They make middle-of-the-night trips to the bathroom much easier (and safer) for people of all ages. For light that will have minimal impact on your sleep quality, consider a red night light, which researchers say doesn’t confuse your circadian rhythm like white lights do. You could also install a toilet night light, which emits a soft brightness from your toilet seat, gently and safely guiding you into the bathroom.
So Many Options
For hallways and closets or task-related lighting, consider brighter LED night lights. With options that include touch lights, puck lights, motion detection, day/night settings and automatic timers, you’re well on your way to visible, safer pathways in your home.
