A stairway is such a versatile space to decorate, and a part of a home that often gets overlooked, despite its frequent daily use. If you’re looking for ways to update your hallway and staircase, there’s so many things you can do that can be as inexpensive and effortless as you like! Here are just a few simple ways to update your stairway:
There’s many ways to decorate your stairway or improve the look of the area, and at Dusk Lighting we’ve got some fantastic lighting solutions that may work perfectly if you want to know how to light a stairway.
Before we show you our top lighting suggestions, there’s some elements to consider when thinking about how to light a stairway, including:
If you’re keen to light up your stairs using multiple wall lights then Dusk Lighting is the perfect place to look for a wide range of different styles. From wall lights that sit flush to the wall, to elaborate wall lamps that offer a designer look, our collection of wall lights will work for any room in your home, so why not choose them for your staircase? Wall mounted lights on a stairway can offer a soft glow for a visually appealing look that can be placed at regular intervals up the stairs or can highlight artwork mounted on the wall.
If you have an open staircase, a pendant light on the landing, which light can reach down the flight of stairs, can have just the same effect as wall lights when chosen correctly. As staircases often suffer from a lack of natural light, having an efficient and innovative lighting solution on the landing can aid this issue. Multiple pendant lights, either installed individually or as part of one lighting design, is a modern look that would suit a contemporary home. Jump on the copper lighting trend or go for clear glass pendant lights with our range of ceiling lights that would light up any landing and staircase in style.
If you’re searching for subtle lighting that will add a touch of style to your staircase, look no further than the Astro recessed wall lights. This unobtrusive lighting choice is popular among homeowners and the LED lights also make this option energy efficient. The recessed lights also mean a reduction of the possibility of a glare. Whether you choose the recessed wall lights with a surround fitting such as stainless steel, or opt for a trimless light like the Astro Leros wall lights below, a small light for each step guides the way beautifully. Not only do they look brilliant, but wired separately, these stair lights can be left on as nightlights to safely light up the stairs at night. Just try not to make the stairway look like a runway!
Similar to the pendant lighting previously mentioned, a set of chandeliers can be installed in an open hall and also on the landing for a coordinated look that can expertly light up your staircase with a lavish touch. This stairway lighting option would suit traditionally styled homes, and the multiple lights on a chandelier will give out plenty of much needed light. We love the Firstlight Regency five light pendant finished in antique silver for an update on the classic crystal glass embellished chandelier, and we also stock many of those more classic, glamorous styles in our complete selection of chandeliers.
