Any well-designed home has a night light or two installed to provide a safe source of light for the bathroom, kitchen, hallway, or bedroom. Even outdoor areas can benefit from a night light. (Ever struggled to find your keys in a bag after coming home late at night? A motion-sensor activated night light next to the door would fix that problem in an instant).
Night lights placed in the bedroom and bathroom also reduce the risk of falling for older adults. In fact, doctors are recommending installing night lights in the home as part of a preventive measure. Check out our blog post for more details.
We offer over 25 different models of night lights, so hopefully this guide will help you figure out which type is right for each room in your home.
First, consider what color of light you prefer. Incandescent lights usually have more of a yellowish tint, while LED night lights are more of a white light.
If you have no free outlet space, you can go with any of the LED battery operated night lights. These can be mounted anywhere, most can be used indoors or outdoors, and all have a relatively good battery life of over one year.
Of course, there is always the traditional night light that plugs directly into an outlet.
For an in-wall recessed option that seamlessly mounts in a vertical wall box, check out our in-wall night lights. There are a number of different models so you can choose the style you would like.
This is really a matter of preference. Are you looking for a light that turns on and stays on all night as soon as dusk hits, or would you prefer to control the on/off switch? Do you only want the night light to turn on when you’re in the room? Choose whether motion-activated, dusk-to-dawn-sensor, or manual turn on/off lights are the right night lights for you.
