Before & After: A Dark Hallway Comes into the Light

Before & After: A Dark Hallway Comes into the Light

This long, dark hallway was not being helped by the saltillo tile, ugly light fixture, and dark trim. But after stripping away all those dated features in the hallway, it's now a lighter, brighter, and more welcoming space…

We saw this snazzy before and after over on To the Moon and Back — a great little blog documenting a home's transformation. This project is a true testament to the power of simple changes. Replacing the old dark tile with new, brighter (and simpler) tile went a long way in brightening up this space. Adding the board and batten and painting the walls with Benjamin Moore's "Montgomery White" helps to complete the transformation. And, of course, the new light fixtures are a huge improvement over those old spotlights.

Check out the complete project, along with some photos of the hallway mid-project, on To the Moon and Back.
