Whether you’re preparing the nursery for baby or looking for something to make bedtime a bit easier for your toddler, a night light is a must-have for parents. These small lights play a big part it making it safe to navigate the house at night.
Light for Little Ones
Unlike harsh overheads that shine light throughout the entire room, plug-in night lights cast a soft, warm glow in the nursery and similar areas. When placed in an outlet close to the crib, they allow you to tiptoe in and check on your sleeping child without disturbing them.
Night lights can offer a fun way to express their personal style too. Toddlers and older children have a wide range of cool options to choose from. You can liven up a kids room with decorative lights inspired by their favorite movies, from Star Wars to Frozen.
LED projectables are another fun option. These night lights project colorful scenes on the wall or ceiling of their bedroom. They plug directly into the outlet and are easy to angle to direct the image where you want it.
Night Lights for All Ages
Night lights aren’t just for kids. 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 does. Or try a motion-sensor option that only comes on when you get out of bed.
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. With such a wide variety of night lights available, you're sure to find one that suits your specific needs. Some options even come with a convenient remote control.
