Steps leading up to your home? They may be lovely (and, more importantly, necessary), but they also pose a major trip hazard, especially in wet conditions and at night. The solution: outdoor step lights.
Protect yourself, your family, and your visitors (and your home insurance policy!); light up your steps to avoid trips, slips, falls, and injuries.
Getting the lighting right can be tricky. Depending on the location and layout of your steps, there are several ways to light them. The most popular outdoor step lights locations are:
On the step
Use those risers! Place lights in the center of the step, on each side (or the darker side) of the step, along the entire riser, or staggered to light the entire flight of stairs. Get creative!
On the wall
If your stairs are surrounding by walls, use the existing structure to light the steps by attaching fixtures to the wall itself. This tactic casts a glow on the stairs without using the stairs themselves.
Proper lighting will ensure that you stay safe on the steps – and it looks great, too!
