I was in Lowes and picked up a few light fixtures for my shed and kitchen for absolutely fantastic prices. As always YMMV on prices at your local stores. At my store several of these were not marked the correct prices on the shelves or on the clearance stickers on the box, but they rang up at these prices (brickseek/Lowes.com show correct prices too).

Metalux HBL-Series High Bay Shop Light (Common: 4-ft; Actual: 19.6-in x 49.4-in) [lowes.com] $10 reg $79.99
Brickseek [brickseek.com]

Portfolio Frosted Acrylic Flush Mount Fluorescent Light (Common: 2-ft; Actual: 26.5-in) [lowes.com] $15 reg $59.99
Brickseek [brickseek.com]

Kichler Edenbrook 6.46-in Brushed Nickel Country Cottage Mini Etched Glass Cylinder Pendant [lowes.com] $16 reg $79.99
Brickseek [brickseek.com]

Portfolio White Acrylic Ceiling Fluorescent Light (Common: 4-ft; Actual: 51-in) $9 reg $79.99
Brickseek [brickseek.com] - this one isn't on Lowes website anymore

And if you aren't aware, you can now get LED bulbs for these so it isn't so much of a hassle to deal with them.

I just set my shop up with T-8 3 lamp fixtures with a mix of 1 x 3500 - 4100 and 2 x 5000 on the walls. Over head I have all 5000 bulbs in 4 lamp fixtures. The 3500 are kind of a warm orange, the 5000 are a fairly white light. If you are detailing, the color of the light will affect the color you see on your work.Mixing up the bulbs seems to help get a little bit more like what you get outside. I got used fixtures for $5-$10 and bulbs for .25 off craigslist and my local Re-store. $10 for new fixtures is slick.

The lights on the side walls are 5 feet apart, over head are 4 feet apart.

I'm a big fan of 5000k bulbs as they are the closest to daylight. I would think they would be best for being able to see correct colors and also for showing detail.

If you want LED bulbs, I was at Costco the other day and they had 2-packs of the LED T8 bulbs for $15. These were the kind that don't require any rewiring which is nice. More expensive than fluorescent but hopefully they'll last years! And I like the fact that they aren't glass so you don't have to worry about them breaking.

Thanks a bunch and repped OP! Was able to get a couple of lights.

As for you guys talking about temperature, what you need to be concerned with is the CRI of the lamps you are using. That will let you know how accurate colors are when the light is on.
