I wouldn’t worry about the scraping, unless the hedgehog seems to be truly stuck or distressed. Their prickles flatten down a lot but it can be quite loud when they go through gaps. But 14 cm should be more than big enough for a corridor. Is the sleeping chamber 29×29 cm? The room should be bigger than the tunnel, but it’s not clear from your description.
