I love my new hallway.
Couldn’t care less if the red lights evoke a brothel vibe.
It’s both warm and welcoming

We have a 7.2 metre long hallway and despite having three doorways and a huge mirror on one wall it is dark and gloomy . After 33 years of trying to do something about I have resigned myself to living with it!

petrucciO.......try removing the dark hall runner or replacing with a lighter version...absorbing light. Have you considered a skylight or two? An inexpensive solution that I have incorporated into my 9 metre long hallway which also has 3 doorways but was gloomy too. Maybe worth a shot.
