Q: Our home has a long, narrow hallway running the length of the house from the front door to the kitchen in the rear. It connects everything and is awkward because it is so narrow. I want the space to be inviting and interesting, but do not want it to feel any narrower. We have to take care hanging things on the wall because the occasional traffic jam at the end of the hall near the kitchen means people brush up against the walls.
We plan to replace the light fixtures with a style more consistent with the age of the home (1907) and strip off all the painted-over wallpaper. However, we are not doing a historic rehab. Beyond sticking with hardware consistent with building style, this is a blank slate. Suggestions?
