T8 lighting installation
Following the previously mentioned sawmillcreek.com article, I installed t8 lighting in the garage. For 100 lumen/sq ft, I calculated I would need about 16 32watt t8 bulbs. That article was about right as I can see everything without a need for a task light. The quality of light from the t8 bulbs is fantastic. Spacing them about 6 feet apart spreads the light out evenly and does not create shadows on whatever was illuminated. I am using Phillips neutral (3500k) 32 watt bulbs which give a very natural light.
