Salt lamps for the kids rooms

Most kids bedrooms start from around 3x3m and upwards. Some are more rectangle than square and so on.

But for the most part, an excellent size salt lamp for the kids room is a 2-4kg or 4-6kg salt lamp.

Of course, some kids do like the sphere or pyramid shaped salt lamp, and they are always around 2-5kgs in weight.

Salt lamps, due to their many health benefits, have become the kids bedroom light of choice. It has such a lovely soft, natural glow about it and the kids love it.

Salt lamps for your main bedroom

For many, the main bedroom is the key room in their decision making. 

The reason being is due to the number of people recommending salt lamps to their friends who are having difficulty sleeping the whole night through.

Time and time again, we get reviews and positive comments about how different customers sleep better with a salt lamp in their room.

And of course, you can buy a salt lamp with a dimmer cord so you can turn the light intensity down at night.

Our customer buy salt lamps for their bedroom in two ways.

  1. A large Himalayan salt lamp to sit in the corner of their room
  2. As a bedside table lamp or crystal lamps for their room.

Bedside crystal salt lamps are very popular. But there is definitely competition for the Himalayan salt lamps versus selenite lamps.

By far the most common size for bedroom side tables is the 4-6kg or 6-9kg on both bedside tables.

If you have a big bedroom and you decide on the large salt lamps, then anything above 15kgs is a great choice.

Having a Himalayan salt lamp in your office is more common place now than ever, especially when many celebrities are showing theirs on their desks or at home.

Let's face it, most office desks are limited by their desk size, so a 2-4kg salt lamp works well.

But if you have a space in the corner, then you can get a salt lamp according to the size of your office.

The bigger your office, the bigger the salt lamp you can get.

Salt lamps for the reception at a chiropractor, yoga studio or wellness centre

When people walk into our Sydney showroom, they always light up and say 'Wow'. Now, it could be due to the beautiful Amethyst Geode Caves but it is also very likely to be the many salt lamps we have turned on too.

I found this image of a massage therapist in the US, who uses a salt lamp in her rooms when massaging. But also does salt lamp foot therapy where clients receive their upper body massage while seated with their feat on a sphere salt lamp.

Likewise, when people walk into your wellness centre or Yoga studio, seeing a salt lamp is always a lovely thing.

We have a number of Chiropractors and wellness centres we have supplied many salt lamps to.

A lot of remedial massage places have one 2-4kg or 4-6kg salt lamp in every room.

And reception will often have a larger one. This always has a calming effect in every office for both staff and clients.

In reception, you might like to have up to a 12-15kg salt lamp.

Salt lamp size for a hallway and night light

For most people, getting up once per night to go to the toilet is pretty common, as annoying as it is.

Having a salt lamp in the hallway or living area leading up to that is ideal at night.

To get the benefits of the salt lamp, you need to have it on.

Having a Himalayan salt lamp on all night to light up the areas you and your family might walk through each night makes a lot of sense.

For this size area, you might like to have anything from 4-6kg up to 12-15kg.

You may also like to have a carved salt lamp like a fire bowl, as they always look beautiful.

You cannot buy a salt lamp that is 'too big'

The good news is, no salt lamp is ever 'too big'. The bigger the salt lamp, the more air in the room they can cleanse and purify.

When people first experience sleeping with a salt lamp in their room, they often want to get a bigger one to experience even more benefits.
