Nowadays, more and more people use linear LED lights for the staircase in their homes. They are installed directly on the stairway instead of the simple recessed wall lights. These LED strips are usually placed well with their midpoint aligned to the center of the step. You can create a minimalistic elegant design as you cannot even see the fittings. This type of installation lights each step evenly, an effect that cannot be created with overhead lighting, low-level recessed wall lighting, or wall sconces.
