Keep it simple – but sophisticated These stairs seem to float over this soft backlighting. The warmth and natural grain of the wood is brought out beautifully by the lighting.

Make it floatThe uplighting here creates an illuminated area that prevents the eye from fully seeing where the wall ends and the stairs begin. It gives the impression of a floating staircase on a cushion of light and is testimony to the visual power of concealed lighting.TELL US…Do you have any concealed lighting in your home?

Beleuchtung mit Bewegungsmeldern „Beliebt sind mittlerweile auch indirekte Stufenbeleuchtungen durch LEDs“, so Yetgin. „Nur: In öffentlichen Bereichen reichen Stufenleuchten in keinem Fall, da die DIN eine gewisse Lichtstärke fordert, die mit ihnen nicht erfüllbar ist.“ Ältere Menschen sollten generell auf eine stärkere Beleuchtung des Treppenhauses achten, gegebenenfalls auch mehrere Leuchtenarten wählen. „Außerdem sind Bewegungsmelder eine gute Idee, gerade wenn Kinder mit im Haus leben“, so der Lichtexperte. Zudem wird Strom im Treppenhaus so nur dann verbraucht, wenn er auch wirklich benötigt wird.
