Sloped ceiling hallway second floor
NextstageHOME, LLCSeptember 30, 2013
House, circa 1924, originally designed as one story with expansive attic on 2nd story where only 1 bedroom/bath was included for servant's quarters. Yrs later part of attic turned into 2nd very large BR and hallway-you'll see hall view from each end in pics. Would LOVE advice: as it was originally attic the hallway to this 2nd added bedroom is severely sloped--so much so you have to walk directly under the limited area where ceiling is 8' otherwise you'll bang your head. Looking to minimize visual impact of slope--all ideas welcomed. Thanks!

Hello. If it is possible, I would put in recessed lighting. Keep color on walls the same from baseboard to ceiling. I would hang some art on the straight wall and place a really interesting runner.

Recessed lighting would provide the cleanest look, but use adjustable trims that will allow for the light to shine straight down from the sloped ceiling.
