A week ago I received some very useful information from this forum regarding LED panel light wiring for my garage / workshop conversion. I am now in the position of ordering and fitting my lights and was hoping for some advice on the best lighting set up for my space.

I have attached PDFs which show the two options I am considering. My overall aim is to provide as near as possible day light style lighting that covers the whole space with minimal shadow and dark areas.

1. 4 x 40W LED ceiling panels (72W replacement / 3400Lm / wide beam :

2. 2 x 72W LED ceiling panels (144W replacement / 5500Lm / wide beam :

I would appreciate any advice, thoughts on which would be the best set up for my space and which colour option to go for: 'Natural White' or 'Cool White'?

Many thanks,

Suppose it was said you should have cool white, so you buy it install it then don't like it, you would not be happy (understandably) so i would say it really is down to you / your preference as to which you should have.

Take it easy, a forum is only a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link. to find out more.
