I agree that you shouldnt skimp on the lighting. Keep it bright. My shop is 21X21 and I have 10 – 48” two tube fixtures in the ceiling. Its like an operating room at the hospital. I also have lights on some equipment like the bandsaw, drill press, grinder etc. I bought mine at Home Depot…just inexpensive fixtures. The only thing to keep in mind is if you are in an area that gets cold and your shop isnt heated, the regular ballast fixtures wont start very good if it gets real cold. You would need cold weather ballasts.
