This client requested that lighting be placed in the stairway along the stairs. Although there are a variety of options, in general, lighting the stairs low on the wall of the stairway is becoming increasingly popular. Low lighting helps to eliminate shadows that are created by overhead lighting. This type of lighting helps to improve safety in an area that can easily cause falls. Placing switches for the lights at the top of the stairs as well as at the bottom helps to ensure that this lighting will be consistently used.
