Need ideas for a hallway


hey guys, The hallways in our building take a beating from people and furniture being moved in and out. I would like to do something else instead of sheetrock and paint( it always looks like crap within months). I am thinking of some sort of paneling to go over the sheetrock. Something that does not need painting, thats inviting and strong. any ideas????

thanks!!!

how about a simple wainscoting up to about 4' high, and sheetrock above that?
you could do beadboard, frame and panel, etc... and put gloss poly on it (which forms a strong protective layer).
