Let’s take a look at 4 most common, yet impressive lighting ideas for building staircase.

What Is The Best Kind Of Lighting For Building Staircase

Electric Lights

Electric lights can be used to illuminate different corners of your stairs, Simply put some strands of twinkling lights at the corners of each stair or simply on the boundary walls. You can also hang them over each stair to give an impressive look. These lights can be decorated in any shape for more impact.

Things To Consider

You can use plastic hooks to string up the lights on different corners of your stairs, Metals nails and staples can also be used to puncture the wires. You should make sure that the lights you buy have red holographic UL seal. It will make sure that they are tested for safety. Simply cover the wires with duct tape or small rugs. These lights can be used continuously for three months.

Solar Lights

Solar lights are also known as eco-friendly lights. These models of the lights contain solar panels that capture and absorb the energy from the Sun during the day and automatically turn on the lights as the darkness falls. The solar panels are placed either on the top or bottom of the light panel.

Things To Consider

Solar lights can last for about a year. These lights either contain NiCD or NiMD batteries. Remember, solar lights only last for 4 hours in one run. Thus, you should be prepared with alternative lighting options if you plan to continue your party all night. Solar lights come in a wide range of options to choose from. In order to maximize the efficiency of the lights, it is advised to put them in the sunniest corner of your home. Also, do not forget to clean the solar panels to ensure better performance in the long run.

 Lighting For Building Staircase

Battery-Powered Lights

Battery powered lights look similar to candles. You can expect to create a warm and cozy ambiance for your guests, without worrying about the wind or dripping of wax.

Things To Consider

These lights are available in multiple battery options, including alkaline, lithium, nickel metal hydride (NiMH), or nickel cadmium (NiCD) batteries. You can charge these batteries hundred times, as per your requirements. It is important to charge the batteries overnight, if you want them to work longer, at least until your guests do not leave. You can also buy spare set of batteries for uninterrupted fun. Also, keep the lights away from water as the batteries can leak and short on being wet.

Candles and Torches

Candles and torches are some of the most traditional ways to illuminate the stairs. They look gorgeous, and create a cozy environment for your guests as well. You may choose to use dramatic torches and candlelight to compliment the overall decoration of the party.

Things To Consider

Even though candles can be put anywhere, you should be careful about the safety factors as well. If you plan to hang the candles from ceiling, make sure you place them in deep containers, so the sparks do not touch the heads of the people climbing the stairs. The flames should be kept at least 12 inches away from each other to prevent huge damages caused due to fire and accidents. Avoid using such kind of lighting options if your gathering involves kids and pets.

Keep in mind all these options if you plan to illuminate your staircase area. There are plenty of your options as well that you can explore. All you need is to take into account the safety aspects as well before making the final selection. Exploring more options will help you make an informed choice that can last a while. Make sure the option you choose is flexible and can be changed as and when required without much wastage to the investment.
