My husband and I have decided to finish out a space above our garage for use as my studio and a multipurpose room. Since I'm starting with a blank slate, I'm looking for help in designing the arrangement of lights and furniture that would be best for my work space.
This is the unfinished room and to give you an idea of the space I'm working with, my dedicated work area will be from about the bottom feet of the ladder laying on the floor across to the opposite wall; a pretty decent size. The window faces west. We were thinking track lighting along the hip walls but I'm not sure. I'm an oil painter and scratchboard artist and I'll be using the space to work on both very small projects and will also frequently have large pieces going in the neighborhood of 4'X6'. For furniture, I currently use a drafting table, an easel, a card table, and a bookshelf on which I have a computer and a projector for viewing reference images projected large against the wall.
So, what are your opinions on setting it up to make it work best?
