This summer (Lord willing) I’ll be building my first dedicated workshop. Hurray!
I was wondering about the best ceiling though. There will be a loft above. So the options would be to sheetrock and finish the thing or leave it open floor joists.
Thus far I’ve always had finished garage ceilings, but growing up, my dad’s tiny basement shop had open joists and I remember there was A TON of storage because of it!
Therefore, I’m leaning towards the open thing, but that leads to a second question. If I go that way I’d like to paint it to at least make it look somewhat presentable. Do you think I should go with white to maximize reflected light or go with black like many movie theaters / resturants do to provide an open, yet classy look? What would you do?
