SHAPE AND STYLE OF STEP LIGHTS
- Round. Round lighting is probably the most popular shape of step lights, mainly because they are the easiest to install. They offer small doses of light onto your steps, and round lighting can be used inside the wall, on the tread or the riser part of your step, and underneath your steps.
- Square. Square lighting is very similar to round lighting for your shape of step lights, and they provide a very similar look in terms of shining small amounts of light onto your steps. They are easy to install and recess into your step or wall and come in many different styles for you to choose from.
- Linear. Linear lights are the lights you see in rows or bars that give off a steady stream of light. The Light House Gallery in Missouri recommends these types of lights as the shape you’ll definitely want when lighting your handrails or underneath or beside your steps.
COLOR OF LIGHT
If you want traditional step lighting, white light (either warm or cool) is the way to go. However, LED lighting technology has made colored lighting affordable and just plain cool to look at. You can choose step lights that change color, or even tape lights as well. This allows you to mix up the colors to suit your mood or time of year, like red and/or green at Christmas time.
ONE LAST STEP LIGHT SOLUTION
If you don’t want to light your steps at all, you can light your banisters or handrails instead. This choice in lighting often requires a linear lighting solution that is surface-mounted and very low profile. LED lighting is a great choice here. The Light House Gallery in Missouri recommends installing these indoor or outdoor lights underneath your balustrade or banister for a beautiful effect.
