Studio Lighting 1962 Home with Unfinished Basement
Could you please calculate and advise on which fixtures to light the 21’ x 26’ x 8 high basements with exposed rafters? I would like to use this space as my art studio. There is a single very small glass block window 15” x 20”.
By using the lumen estimation calculator, we received a similar 42,931 lumen estimate recommendation for your space based on the dimensions.
It might also be helpful to know that the referenced NorthLux™ 95 CRI T5 LED Linear Light Fixtures are not usually installed as ceiling lighting due to their usage of DC power via wall plug for operation.
If in-wall power and wall switches are preferred for the basement lights, you might alternatively be interested in our LED Ready T8 LED Fixtures and NorthLux™ 95 CRI T8 LED Tube for Art & Studio. By my estimation, the 42,931 lumen suggestion can be reached with 24 of the aforementioned T8 lamps.
