Adding a series of lights up a flight of stairs - or even a few around a couple of steps - can add a lovely sense of ambiance and a backdrop of warm lighting. Depending on the style of the light, they can blend nicely into the background or become a feature in themselves whilst really adding a great contemporary touch to your home. Stair lights also play a huge practical role in making staircases safer, especially at night, and may even help you avoid any serious mishaps.
As anyone who’s ever had a baby can attest, anything that makes life easy in those first few months is hugely welcome. So, if you find yourself often waking at night, and need to go up and down the stairs, but don’t want to disturb the whole house by switching on the main lights, then a set of stair lights could be a real game changer. There’s no denying that recessed lights look stunning, but you needn’t make a huge investment to add some extra lighting to your landing or stairs. Plug-in LED night lights are great value and super easy to slot into your existing sockets - and can be activated by movement alone.
Stair lights are an excellent way of creating ambiance and adding a subtle light source to any home. When choosing low level lighting it’s important to make sure that they’re durable and tough, and able to withstand any damage from being trampled on or accidentally knocked. Also, LED lights make a great choice, as they are super energy efficient and mostly tend to have a considerably long life span, which means you won’t have to worry about replacing bulbs very often.
