Fluorescents and halogens produce a very cold light for a children's room, so it is better to opt for incandescent models. There are a variety of models on the market that will serve as a decorative complement: lamps with children's motifs, more classic, design ...
2- Point lighting: To illuminate certain areas that need more light such as the changing area, the breastfeeding or to get an indirect light we can choose between table or floor lamps. Its intensity will vary according to the task we are going to carry out.
