Why We Love Step Lights
Many accidents in the home involve falls. And more often than not, these falls occur on stairs. Indoor step lights and recessed wall lighting provide the interior lighting needed to minimize such unfortunate occurrences. Mounted low to the ground and flush to the wall, step lights help you to fully see and traverse stairs without fear of misstep. Their flush design means that stair lights tend toward more compact--and efficient--LED lamping, which effectively negates the need for replacing bulbs. In short, step lights are sleek, safe and definitely made to last.
Where Step Lights Work Best
As their name suggests, step lights are made primarily for installation along stairs. However, they also make great border lights in general, installed along baseboards and such to outline a room's perimeter and provide low level mood lighting. LED step lights will provide ample lighting for your stairs, while also being energy efficient and cost effective. And you will find these indoor step lights especially helpful when used as hallway lighting, pairing well with other sources of illumination from sconces or overhead lighting. Recessed wall lighting is a simple, yet elegant way to add an accenting touch to any area of the home.
A Step Light for Every Style
For baseboards or slightly higher up on the wall, these low profile step lights aim to add helpful light to dim spaces without being an obtrusive element of the room. Recessed wall lights are offered in a variety of decorative styles too, ranging from traditional finishes to ultra-modern options. Bruck Lighting offers a solution to blend in with almost any decorative preference, offering a wide selection of bronze, white and brushed nickel finishes. Modern homes will appreciate the selection of recessed step lights from WAC Lighting and look to SLV Lighting to satisfy an LED requirement. LED step lights are long-lasting, efficient and you rarely (if ever) will have to change the light source. Finally, for sleek and contemporary designs to grace the baseboards of your house, look to the offering from LBL Lighting.
Choosing the Best Step Lights
In addition to a number of decorative styles, indoor step lighting is offered in a variety of sizes and shapes too. From horizontal step lights to vertical step lights and elegant designs that seem to pop from the wall, your choices are vast. To find the best step light, you first need to determine what is ideal for your rooms. Tall baseboards can accommodate vertical fixtures, while shorter baseboards are better suited with horizontal options. Some designs are completely flush with the wall (installed recessed in the wall) and some have accents protruding from the wall. You'll need to decide which is the perfect fit for your home, then refine your options by sizing dimensions like height, length and depth.

Other Great Options
Step lighting is also quite useful outdoors helping to light dark pathways, gazebos, patios and decks. Check out the selection of outdoor step lights and deck lighting for front porch steps and around the border of a deck. Many are offered in LED designs as well, so you can achieve efficiency in your outdoor living areas too. You'll also want to check out similarly unobtrusive accent lighting for options to light up kitchen counters, display cases, artwork and more.
