Hallway - Hi, we are remodeling and I was wondering the width of this hallway. Do you think 3ft is wide enough for a hall that is 13ft long? It has a bathroom door half way down on the left and a bedroom door on the end of it. Any advice is appreciated ;)
   Comment   October 22, 2012
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
3ft is quite narrow - envision trying to move furniture down a hall that narrow. If possible, tear down hallway walls where they border living areas - if the hallway begins or ends behind a living room, bkfst rm, etc... then tear out that partof the wall to make the actual hall passage shorter - but you'll still have to move bedroom furniture to the end of the hall - also, halls are total wastes of square footage, so tearing down any portion of a wall, even if you have to leave a column and/or header, means not only is the hallway effectively wider, but the adjacent room just gained 3 ft of space! Now you can have a console or hutch or artwork, whatever, on the hall wall, that's part of the adjacent room! win/win

hi, what is the kind of wood material used for the left wall/cabinet? - I talked to one of the designer, he said it was rist white oak wood. I don't think I get it correct since I could find it any where

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Moving to double-loaded corridors, we can see that spatially and in terms of natural light they are not as dramatic or special as single-loaded ones. But often they are necessary. This one is treated minimally, with a white wall opposite a wood wall with matching closet doors.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Fresh Ways With Wood Paneling
Lighten the floors. These maple floors allow the deep wood paneling to act as an accent wall instead of dominating the space.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: 3 Ingenious Ways With Wall Cabinets
This bank of cabinetry acts as a warm-toned paneled wall defining a corridor. The wall’s panels conceal door openings and access to other rooms. It’s a commanding organizing element and allows for a hidden passageway — behind the secret door — to become a reality.
