    In trying to make the most of our small space, we're thinking of another layer of mat storage slots above our existing one, along a wall. This would put the top mats just a couple of feet from a light fixture, and we were thinking of adding and overhang (which would be about eight feet up), reaching a couple feet out, to block the fading effect of the flourescents on the mats. This led to the idea of switching to LED's, but for all I know (or don't), these also cause fading.

    Our fitting area currently has flourescents. Currently using 3-tube, 4 foot long fixtures with plastic diffuser lense covers. We changed our gallery track light system (floods and track lights) to LED bulbs last year, and are thinking of getting LED tubes for the fitting area. I've been looking online to see if they work better, cause fading or eye problems, and would like to know your thoughts. We want something good, very quiet, and safe.
