We have a (relatively) lot of wall space in some of our hallways.
This would be excellent to capitalize on for hanging artwork.
But, lighting sucks -- the halls typically only need enough
light to insure folks can safely navigate them, not the sort
of lighting that you'd want to examine a piece of artwork.
I thought of mounting a low voltage LED strip along the "seams"
where the ceiling meets the two opposing walls. Angle these
down and *across*
so the strip at the top of the left wall
illuminates the *right*
wall -- and vice versa.
But, a strip of bare LED's would be brutal on the eyes (even on a
dimmer control). So, ideally, place them behind a "quarter round"
made of diffused Lexan or similar. Like taking a tubular fluorescent
lamp and cutting it in quarters along it's length.
When off, the light strip would just look like a grayish plastic
molding along the top of each wall. When lit, it would be a bar of
light illuminating the opposing wall.
Anything like this on the market? (note, it would need to be "custom"
length as I don't want to be pasting X foot lengths together -- tacky!)
Or, any materials that I could possibly use to achieve these results?
(I figure 2 in dia would be a minimum to start "quartering")
