    Try a combinationStairwells, particularly those right inside a home that don’t get much natural light, need good illumination to make them safe. So try a combination of practical downlights and decorative pendant lighting. Here, strong ceiling lights keep every tread illuminated to reduce the risk of accidents, while a simple trio pendant light adds some decorative detail. The soft light it produces also helps to pick out the reclaimed wood used to clad the stairwell wall.See more ideas for making your stairs special

    Warm up a stairwellDo you have a blank white wall staring at you every time you go up or down the stairs? This display of reclaimed boards warms up a cool white space and acts as a full-height artwork. Every time you pass by, you’ll spot new whorls and patterns in the wood. No need to hang extra pictures – a set of contemporary lights makes just the right contrast.

    Take it upstairsA staircase is a clever place for a feature wall – it connects upstairs with downstairs and provides some visual interest as people travel between the two. This panel of reclaimed wood has been framed with a white border to give it the feel of an artwork, while a pendant light really enhances the different colours in the timber.

    Install statement lighting A statement light will turn an incidental space into somewhere with its own strong style. The stairs and landing in this house are lit by ceiling spots, which provide plenty of strong, practical light, but it is the statement pendant light in the stairwell that creates the impact, while softly lighting the wall of reclaimed wood.
