Question about Solar Tubes
I saw the recently updated thread about Solar Tubes and have a question. I tried Googling, didn't find an example. Would it be possible to wall-mount a diffuser for one of these things? I know it would be awfully bright, I'm thinking of a transom-type effect. Another idea would be to steal a couple inches from the closet behind it (closet above that too, with attic access) and do a "light from above" type niche.
Situation: We have a very dark and very small hallway on the lower level of our 4-level split. The ceiling is only 7' high (ductwork immediately over, most of the ceiling on that level is 7'10"), 3' wide and about 5' long. There is no light fixture and something there would go a long way toward ambiance.
I'm not sold on the idea, just one of my many ideas I thought would be cool. I think there is an electric light (never ever used) in the closet immediately behind the dark hallway, now that I think of it, perhaps I can re-purpose it to a wall-hugging or even better, wall-embedded sconce.
