Let there be Light
I spend time most every day hanging out in the basement using our exercise equipment. The basement is far from beautiful as you can see. I really don’t care much about the decor, but the lighting (or lack thereof) is starting to wear on my nerves.
If I am lying on my back on the GTS (gravity) machine at the far side, I look up into those two bare light bulbs and my eyes say “ouch”. Something must be done about that.
I considered some sort of giant shade for the existing light, but that is not really what is needed.
Last night as I went through various asanas in my yoga class, I looked up and saw what I think is the perfect solution. The yoga studio is a fairly large space -- at least 40’ by 20’. Four sets of 3-bulb tracks light the entire space quite adequately and in a way that doesn’t shine light directly into anyone’s eyes.
The basement space is somewhat smaller, so maybe fewer lights are needed. I don’t know how it will work dropping them down from the existing ceiling beams.
An electrician is coming over tomorrow to assess the project and make recommendations. Hopefully he will agree with my idea and be able to make it happen.
I found this track light on Amazon at a reasonable price.
Any thoughts or recommendations?
