A Strip Of LED Lights Under The Stairs Of This Home Adds A Warm Glow To The Interior

Architecture firm Andrey Sokruta Workshop has designed a modern home in Kiev, Ukraine, that includes an illuminated staircase.

Modern wood stairs that have hidden lighting.

Since each tread in the wood staircase has an overhang (or nosing) which extends past the riser, a thin strip of LED lighting can be placed underneath, providing a warm glow to the stairs.

The rest of the home includes wood-like tiles on the exterior and interior, panoramic windows, black lighting designed to look like two sheets of metal bent in a chaotic geometry, a living room with a large blue sofa, and a kitchen with matte black accents.

Let’s take a look around…
