Are these cable lighting systems hard to install? Or does it take a pro?

What is the width of the hallway on the mezzanine excluding bookcase?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Beautiful Modern Home Libraries
Details like this rug and reading chair are kept to a simple and understated look.
I sense a pattern: more books and a sloping roof. Hallways are good places for books, because they don't take up space in other rooms and the mental noise they create (look how many of those books I haven't read yet!) is tucked out of the way, yet they are still easily accessible.
Becky Harris added this to Get Ideas for a Cozy Library Space
Here's another striking book-lined hallway visible from the floor below.
John Hill added this to 24 Amazing Walls of Books
Hallways can also be mezzanines, so the books then become a part of the larger house, not tucked away from other rooms.
Becky Harris added this to 12 Libraries That Lightened Up
The upstairs hallway is often a wasted space; just a slight addition to the depth allowed for long bookshelves here. The walkway is open to the floor below.Tip: Take note of the track lighting, art lighting and library lamps used to spotlight the shelves in many of these photos. Shining light on your books and objects will transform the way you experience your library space, especially at night. See more ways to incorporate libraries into other spaces
