We live in a 1600 SF 1940's colonial. We have many family photos we would like to hang on both sides of the staircase from the first floor to the 2nd however it is remarkably dark. Ceilings are 8'. There is lighting in hallway upstairs however not directly above staircase and there is no lighting at bottom of stairs. We have been thinking of installing some (approx 4-5) recessed lighting in the ceiling of the staircase, a few inches off each wall. They would be angled to the opposite wall to illuminate the photos.
Thanks in advance!
