tep lights are small, low-profile lighting fixtures designed to provide illumination to staircases, pathways, decks, or any areas with steps. These lights enhance safety by ensuring visibility and preventing accidents in dim or dark areas. Here are some key points to consider when choosing step lights:
- Design and Style: Step lights come in various designs, including recessed, surface-mounted, or wall-mounted fixtures. Choose a design that complements the architecture of your space and fits seamlessly into the surroundings.
- Light Source: Step lights use LED technology due to its energy efficiency, long lifespan, and compact size. LEDs are available in various color temperatures, allowing you to choose warm white (around 2700K-3000K) for a cozy ambiance or cool white (4000K-5000K) for functional lighting.
- Brightness: Consider the brightness of the step lights, measured in lumens. Choose a brightness level that ensures safe visibility without causing glare. Step lights typically have lower lumen output to provide subtle, accent lighting.
