In trying to make the most of our small space, we might add 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 an overhang (which would be about eight feet up and reach a couple feet out), to block any fading. 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 fluorescents. Three-tube, 4 foot long fixtures with plastic diffuser lens covers. We changed our gallery track light system (floods and track lights) to LED bulbs last year, and are considering same in 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.
