Step and Path Lighting Gallery
Path lighting is a type of outdoor landscape lighting that is used to illuminate walkways, pathways, and other outdoor areas where people walk. Path lights typically consist of a post fixture with a shade mounted on a stake that is driven into the ground, and they are often spaced several feet apart along a pathway to create a continuous stream or pools of light.
Path lighting serves several purposes. First, it helps to improve safety by illuminating areas where people walk, reducing the risk of tripping or falling. Second, it can help to enhance the aesthetic appeal of outdoor spaces by highlighting architectural features, plants, or other elements of the landscape. Finally, path lighting can also improve the functionality of outdoor spaces by allowing people to use them after dark, such as for entertaining or relaxing.
Step lighting is a type of outdoor lighting that is used to illuminate stairs, steps, or other raised areas that people need to walk on. It can be installed in a variety of settings, including on decks, patios, walkways, and entryways.
Step lighting serves several purposes. First and foremost, it helps to improve safety by illuminating the steps and making it easier to see where you are walking, reducing the risk of tripping or falling. Second, it can enhance the aesthetic appeal of the outdoor space by providing a soft and inviting glow that can make the area look more welcoming and inviting.
There are several types of step lighting options available, including:
Recessed lighting: These lights are installed directly into the steps themselves, providing a low profile and subtle look that can blend in with the surrounding material.
Surface-mounted lighting: These lights are mounted on the surface of the steps, either on the side or on the top, providing a more prominent and noticeable light source.
Strip lighting: These lights are installed along the edge of the steps, providing a soft and continuous glow that can help to guide people up and down the stairs.
When planning to use path lights and step lights, it’s important to consider factors such as the size and shape of the paths and steps, the desired level of brightness, the type of light bulbs to be used, and the overall aesthetic goals of the lighting project.
