Ignoring the rooms that we haven’t yet renovated (ie half the house), as I thought about our home and what we were creating, the most disappointing room in the house was the hallway. Despite the great Queen with moko print on the wall that makes me smile every time I walk by (and reminds me why I’m not a royalist) the hall was under-whelming.
But not any more: Out came the lighting we put in less than a year ago and in came two solatubes – yes, that’s natural light flooding the room (photo doesn’t really do it justice). Hometech suggested putting in one small solatube – we put in two large solatubes! We’ve turned our hallway into a light well – it’s made a huge difference – to the room, and to our house (and highlighted the need to paint the walls properly).
