    Ideal lighting set up?

    I need suggestions for a 2 car garage lighting setup, and recommend lights for swirls and coatings. Thanks.

    I have 6 150 watt equivalent 5000k outdoor led flood lights. I also have the walls dark to improve the lighting.

    pics of existing space? that's going to determine a lot.

    honestly I have great overhead lighting but for side use a nice $35 LED portable either on the floor or a stand and a good head-light to wear helps. once you dial in the technique on your test panel, just simply apply it all around and spot-check using the aforementioned light. I call them my "ugly lights" as once they light up the side of a car, they cause everything ugly to show. These are what I have https://www.lowes.com/pd/3500-Lumen-...ght/1000841974 got mine on sale. I use 2. I honestly however really use my head lamp the most.

    Looks like you have room to put whatever you up then. Fireplace nook

    Lots of times we see garages that are already full and owners are working with an existing set up that can't change back to an empty space like that. I'm one of those suburban dads that can't just clear it all out as I don't have the space to do it.
