  • Direct lighting over any stairs increases safety. Contrasting colors between the floor and first step will help you see the difference in height.
  • With two-way switches at the top and bottom of stairways, you'll always be able to turn on the light from either end.

Light Fixtures
  • When changing light bulbs, never exceed the wattage rating for the fixture. Check for a sticker on the base of the lamp socket.
  • Turn off fixtures and light switches before replacing bulbs. If you aren't sure whether the lamp is on or off, unplug it first.
  • Use long-life or fluorescent bulbs where access is difficult. Fluorescent bulbs last longest and also save energy.
  • Make sure your kitchen counters and other work areas are welllighted for safety.
