Night lights

Just wondering where to by night lights. I want 12v that light up floor since I have kids. I prefer runs off 12v vs. battery.

Thanks

I think if you get creative you might find a 12V fixture that you like and convert it to low power led so it a milder light and less consuming. Like I was think of like instrument panel LED's that are colored blue or red would be mild.

I guess a control for adjusting power to led. I just want light to shine on floor not in air.

We have these. They are 12 volt DC. They are in the landscape lighting section. You do not need a transformer just wire them direct. We use them with a 7 watt bulb and also have one on the exterior of our RV for a patio light but for a night light go with a 4 watt or lower bulb.

There are also LED puck lights available at Lowe's for under $10. Battery operated, and they tend to shine more light 'down' than 'around.

We use one in the bathroom when we boondock - leave it on all night.

Lorna had a great suggestion with the landscape lights since you can direct wire them (no batteries to change). If you want even a softer light from it, put in either a blue or yellow colored bulb (also available in the landscape lighting section).

When we had a TT, I put a blue bulb in the single light that was on the bathroom ceiling & left it on all night. I put a yellow bulb in the single light that was on the ceiling just inside the entry door. It seemed to work just like a bug bulb = enough light to see to navigate inside but didn't attract the bugs if I had the main door open with the screen door closed.

I was thinking rope lights - you could tack them to the underside of the counters or table and they would give off a low glow. For that matter you could tack them down around the walk ways similar to how they use them in a movie theater.
