Good Questions: Wireless lighting for a dark hallway?

Pin it button big

Recognize this pic? This is part 2 of Katherine's question about her hallway.

Hi AT,

Our Edwardian apartment is in possession of a long, windowless hallway with no outlets. Needless to say, it's quite dark when you come in the front door, which I hate. especially when guests come over -- tres uninviting.

Any thoughts on cordless lighting solutions that are attractive? I've never done electrical work, so I'm not in a rush to try it. There is wiring along the ceiling for one atrocious overhead light . . . so if you have knowledge about how to turn that wiring into several lights along the 20 foot hallway's ceiling, that would help too.

Thanks AT!
Katherine
