Illuminate steps with careOutdoor steps can be a real safety hazard if they’re not properly lit. Make sure the edges of steps are sufficiently lit so that visitors can clearly see where they begin and end. Again, opt for a low-voltage bulb so there’s no glare, and make sure the beam of light is not in anyone’s direct line of sight. Pay attention to stair width too. If your front steps are very wide you may need multiple fittings to provide sufficient light.

Good lightingDon’t underestimate the power of good lighting to change a space. Avoid houses that look they have unflattering or fluorescent lighting. Gentle and warm lighting is a much better option. If you’re planning on getting home after dark, check that there is outdoor lighting to avoid any trips or falls.Stress-free holiday departures

Illuminate stairs. Minimalism comes into play in this simply deceptive entrance where timber cladding and flooring are seamlessly executed. Each timber board has a slightly different hue, giving the exterior depth and texture. Lighting is a finishing touch – wall lights are directed downward to minimise glare but illuminate each step clearly.

10. Consider beyond the front doorInside, your home should be as welcoming as the approach. A view from your front door through to your back door is considered impolite. It also means that chi will run straight through, without having the chance to move around your home.
