We have a very modern house with lots of stairs. We are considering putting LED lighting along the nosing of each tread. What do you think of this solution?
Is your home located in Las Vegas? To me, it would feel like there should be lines of sparkly show girls constantly descending the stairs … not that there is anything wrong with that. I would have you consider creating a clean continuous line of light, recessed into the wall, which follows the slope of the stairs. Take a look at the TruLine series by Pure Lighting (www.purelighting.com) as a good example.
