On the step –  Installing step lights on the steps focuses the center area of the step, letting the light shine right on your face and the body. So, it is advisable to use low voltage lights to keep the lighting fine and also make sure you don’t use flashy lights for this one because the lighting might be a little too harsh.

Below the step – You can install step lights below the steps only if you have a floating staircase. They add a beautiful layer of light focusing on the basement area and gives more light to the ground. You can choose the number of lights according to the length of your stair step.

On the riser – Installing lights on the riser creates a focal point on the area where you choose to install. Also, keep in mind that the size and shape of the lights also matter. Small, round shaped lights would be the perfect ones to go on the riser. You can also opt for the brick shaped lights if you want to amplify the lighting on the step.

These useful tips will help you get an idea to pick the right place for setting up Walkway/Step lights and revamping your outdoor space just the way you want it to be. Also, it is advisable to keep in mind what works best for you.
