Some of the tiles will look wider, that is because they are the closest to where you are in the hallway, remember as thing move away from you, they appear smaller.

transfer your measurements to the opposite wall. You can do this 1 of 2 ways, carefully line your ruler up and mark the other side of the wall (keeping your ruler as straight as possible).

to create accurate lines on your column, start by creating a horizontal line everywhere the column touches a tile line on the left (circled).

next, connect the sides of the line you just created to your vanishing point. This will create the lines on the front of the column.

to draw lights on your ceiling tiles, evenly divide a ceiling square into 3 equal parts. I divided 2 ceiling tiles into 3 equal parts.
