Indoor Step Lights

Design Tips:

  • Choose indoor step lights that complement your interiors, such as the material of your steps or the color of your walls, so that it blends rather than clashes with your design.
  • Select indoor step lights that match with the coverings of your light switches to create a cohesive look and feel in your space.
The main purpose of an indoor step light is for safety. Indoor step lights are installed along steps to provide you with light so that you can see where you step when walking up or down the stairs. These may be used in addition to general lighting in the space, such as a ceiling light in the foyer or directly above the staircase.


Indoor step lights are either recessed or canister mounted. The lamping may be compact fluorescent, incandescent, LED or Xenon. The two most common styles of indoor step lights are those with louvered covers and those with opal lens faces. Step lights with louvered covers direct a bright light beam downward directly toward the steps. Opal lens step lights also shine light directly on the steps, however, the light is dimmable and therefore, the light emitted is much more subtle that that from step lights with louvered covers. Indoor step lights are available in horizontal or vertical configurations. These lights are designed with various finishes, including architectural bronze, brushed nickel, ivory and white. Some indoor step lights are made with energy-saving photocell, a technology that allows the light to turn on at night and off during the day.


Indoor step lights are generally installed along the wall beside each step. However, indoor step lights may also be installed along the walls of a hallway. Not only are indoor step lights used for safety, but these light fixtures may enhance the look and feel of your space, whether in residential or commercial spaces.


Choosing the right indoor step lights doesn’t have to be a difficult task. Selecting one that’s right for you is a matter of both the style that you prefer and the application. Arcadian Home has a wide selection and only provides you with only the best manufacturers of indoor step lights, including Kichler Lighting, Progress Lighting and Nora Lighting.

The image on the left of the Kichler Lighting Horizontal Louver Non-Dimmable LED Step Light is a great example of how this fixture can be used. Notice how this indoor step light, which features a beautiful, ivory finish in a horizontal configuration, is installed against the wall to light each step. It’s the perfect way to provide a safe way for everyone in the home to walk up and down the stairs safely, and thereby preventing possible injury. Step lights may be used in addition to general ceiling lights. Furthermore, a clean, crisp and simple design such as this one easily complements a broad range of architectural styles.

Q & A of the Day

  • Can we replace just the grill covers on the NSI-140 or can we only purchase the entire fixture? Also, is there an option to purchase in black rather than white?

    Nora lighting does sell the louvered face trim (only) on Nora Lighting Louver Incandescent Step Light - NSI-140 if you need to replace an existing faceplate/trim. The model number you will need is NRA-140W. We do not list parts on our site, so you will have to call Arcadian Lighting at (888) 228-8856 in order to place an order for this part. Currently, there is only a white finish available.

New Customer Review

Nora Lighting Louver LED Mini Step Light with Photocell

Looked high and low for a LED Photocell light that didn't require a 12V system yet was rated for damp locations, since I wanted to mount it in the exterior wall on the patio side. Found it here at a good price with great customer service and very prompt shipping. Very highly recommended.
