Step by step to decorate a long dark hall
We have a long corridor without much lighting. Therefore, this week's challenge will be to give a change to this area of the house that is also the entrance.
Since lighting in a corridor is essential, we will start by placing two rows with 5 LED lamps in the roof. To do this, the first thing will be to measure the distance we have to distribute them correctly.
So that the different focuses are aligned correctly, we will place a screwdriver in the two bulbs that are at each end of the row, and we will hook a small rope or thread. Thus, we will have the reference string to know the exact point of the rest of the foci.
When we have the rope hooked, we can mark the points on the ceiling. We can the same distance between them and calculating the space we have in terms of the length of the hall.
As the ceiling is made of plasterboard, with a crown saw we are going to make the holes to place the new spotlights. It is important to wear safety glasses and disconnect the light to avoid problems.
Once we have finished doing all the jobs that generate dust and dirt, we will Paint the walls from the hallway We will leave the ceiling blank but we will paint the walls in a soft gray color.
Once the paint has dried, we will be placing the different spotlights. We will make the electrical connections in parallel and fix the LED spotlights on the ceiling.
At this point, only the walls will be decorated a little. The first thing we will do is place a long and wide shelf in order to leave things when entering the house. We will first fix the support with some screws and then place the shelf.
Finally, we place a mirror with a frame and a horizontal photograph which will help to give more depth to the hall. Thus, we managed to decorate a long and dark corridor and give a new, brighter and more modern air to the corridor.
