Lighting and electrical for a nursery In Frisco & Little Elm

Posted on March 3, 2011

If you are a new parent or parent-to-be in Frisco or Little Elm, your head might be swimming right now with all the things you need to do to prepare for your baby. One thing that might not readily come to mind is making small changes in the lighting and electrical for the room where the baby will sleep. For instance, consider installing a dimmer switch for the overhead light. That way when they wake up at 2 in the morning, you can raise the lighting to a subdued level so that you can make your way around the room while still maintaining a “sleepytime” atmosphere. Babies get warm easily, so you might want to install a ceiling fan to help keep the air in the room circulating and make things more comfortable. Ceiling fans come in all shapes and sizes today so choose one that best matches the decor of the room, or custom-paint a plain white one yourself! Covering the plugs is a great step, but you can also take it one step further and install GFCI outlets to protect your baby from a shock. If you live in a cooler climate, you might want to consider a generator installation. That way if the power goes out, you have a backup source to power a space heater and keep your baby (and the rest of your family) toasty warm. And of course, do not underestimate the importance of a good smoke detector. Smoke alarm battery replacement should be done at the same time every year. You can remember to do this by changing the batteries on your baby’s birthday!

These small changes can help make your home more comfortable and safe for your new son or daughter.
