I am familiar with the rectangular-shaped outdoor deck lighting that is mounted directly to stair risers. I am referring to the kind that has the little fins that angle downward (about 3" x 5" or so). However, I am looking to install similar lighting on a couple stair risers that I will have on a platform riser in my media room. These stairs will be carpeted. Are there special lights for stair risers when carpeting will be used over the stairs? I am thinking that these will need to be mounted with about 1/2" - 3/4" gap between the light and the stair riser so that it ends up flush with the carpeting. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
