What else is as precious as a child to a family and family? The child is responsible for the
future of the house and the hope of the family. Therefore, children should grow up safely, conveniently, comfortably, joyfully, and happily in the care and consideration of all familie-s.
Of course, these things need to be reflected in the interior and lighting of the Childen's room as much as possible.
When talking about the interior and lighting of the childen's room, the most important aspects of parents, families and interior designers are the safety, comfort, and physical, ment-al and psychological health of the owner of the space.
That's why you need to pay special attention to the finishing materials, colors, furniture, an-d lighting. In other words, the colors, furniture, and lighting of the children's room have a great influence on the physical and mental health as well as the growth of the children.
◆ The point of the childen's room interior is color and brightness
The interior and lighting of the children's room should be done especially considering the age of the children. If the child is old before entering elementary school, it is advisable to use interior materials in materials, colors, patterns and forms that can inspire curiosity and fun for their peers. That way children will not be bored living or studying in the room.
However, if a child has entered elementary school or has grown up to middle and high sc-hool students, this time it is more desirable to provide interiors and lightings that match h-is or her peers' growth and interests.
Given this, it would be a good idea to remodel the interiors and lighting of the children's room at the right time to match the age of the child. Nevertheless, there is something we must not forget. That is, the materials, colors, and lighting of interior finishes must be as w-ell designed as the interior materials of children's furniture.
For example, if a child's room is finished in pink, the child may feel bored. If the room is d-ecorated in dark red, the child is likely to grow up in a hurry.
Use lighting without glare and flicker.
The same is true for lighting. If you install a luminaire that uses a lamp with a color tempe-rature of 2500-2700K, your child will grow more gentle. However, if you use a light fixture with a cold color temperature of more than 5000K color, there is a possibility that the char-acter of the child will be cold.
There is another area to be aware of when it comes to lighting a nursery. The first is to pr-event glare. Glare is a phenomenon that occurs when light from a light fixture enters your eyes. Therefore, lighting fixtures used in the children's room should use a lighting fixture that does not have a 'glare phenomenon'.
The second thing to think about is the flicker phenomenon. The flicker phenomenon is ca-used by the alternating current used in lighting equipment, which is a kind of flicker of lig-ht. Severe flicker can cause physical symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, and vomitin-g.
Therefore, it is better to use a luminaire that does not exhibit flicker. There is no standard for flickering in Korea. In the United States, however, the use of luminaires with flickering l-ess than 20% is recommended.
