Lots of light = good light. All good points made above. Another point you should consider is the 14 foot height. The light will spread more than a short ceiling but will also drop in intensity. I have a grid of 200watt incandescents up at 16 feet. When I put the loft in over the primary wood shop, I’ll switch to florescent since they will be about 8 to 9 feet up. The current situation works okay but I still have to use task lighting. I swear I can hear 6, 12 or 18 200w bulbs making the electric meter whine, oh that may just be my wallet screaming when they are all on. Best of luck, BTKS
