4 Electrical Upgrades For Children's Bedrooms Inspired By Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

Posted on: 20 April 2016

As you design or remodel a child's bedroom, it's often fun to look at children's TV shows and movies for inspiration. In the early 2000's, Nickelodeon released the movie Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius and followed it up with an animated television series entitled The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. The series featured a lot of fun stories, but one of the main highlights was Neutron's ability to invent items and live in a world that was all his own. If your child is a fan of the character and world, then there are four different electrical upgrades you can add to their bedroom. Each one of these upgrades include technology and features similar to those seen in both the movie and TV show. For kids, it's a fun way to blend modern bedroom features with a beloved television character.

Closet Outlets

As Jimmy Neutron gets dressed each day, his closet is filled with a clothes picker that can select outfits and even dress him in them. While your children will still have to get dressed on their own, the closet can be upgraded with automatic features. By having outlets installed in the closet by an electrician, you have the ability to add devices like a powered clothing rack. When using hangers, this rack can rotate around in a circle until your child has selected the item of clothing that they need. The extra outlets in the closet can make it easy to install a small light or lamp to easily see the clothing options.

Intercom Systems

Whether Jimmy is in his bedroom or his backyard clubhouse, he always has access to a digital intercom system. An electrician can wire an intercom system into your home so you have easy access to your child no matter what room they are in. This is a great way to alert your child when meals are ready or give them a time warning when the school bus is about to arrive. More advanced intercoms may even feature video technology, allowing you to communicate through a small LCD screen.

Children's Workstation

A child's bedroom is great place to complete homework, play games, and enjoy a variety of devices. Jimmy Neutron often used his workstation to do homework, plan out inventions, and play games on the computer. Create an optimal workstation area by having a few electrical upgrades installed. If you already have a computer desk, then an electrician can install a power strip to the desk. This type of power device can feature both standard plugs and USB plugs. This makes it easy to plug in phones, tablets, or a variety of USB gadgets directly to the computer desk. A variety of USB gadgets can also help a child feel more like Jimmy. Items like fans, drink coolers, and small USB lights are all similar types of gadgets featured on the TV show.

Lighting Upgrades

With a simple remote and a push of a button, Jimmy Neutron had complete control of the lighting in his room. Along with standard lighting, he could kick things up a notch with party lights and color changing lights. By working with an electrician, you can have a variety of fun lighting upgrades installed in your child's room. Recessed lighting is a great way to provide full lighting coverage across the whole room. An electrician can also wire novelty party lights and help you set them to remote control operations. This is a fun upgrade that children can use for slumber parties or random times where they want to have fun and dance. You can provide your own lights or an electrician may have a variety of options that you can get installed.

If your child is a big fan of the show, then it's a good idea to ask them about some of their favorite bedroom features. This allows you to pick the upgrades that they truly want and will take full advantage of. For more information, contact a company like Advantage Electric.
