A step light, also called a stair light or a deck light, lights up staircases to make them easy to navigate even in the dark. They typically install as recessed lighting on the riser of the stairs, but they can also install on the tread or even on the wall. They can work as both indoor and outdoor lighting. Common applications for these lights include theaters or deck lighting, and anywhere else people often navigate staircases in the dark.
Step lights may feature smooth or louvered faceplates. A louvered faceplate features angled horizontal slats, resembling window blinds, that keep out rain and moisture. The angle of the slats directs the light. A smooth faceplate sits flush on the fixture and has no openings and offer more light than louvered fixtures.
Horizontal scoop lights offer another faceplate option. A scoop light refers to a type of downlight that features a recessed inlet that shows no visible hardware, which seamlessly blends into any architecture.
