Four Great Lighting Options for Your Garage

Lighting is something that is often overlooked in a garage. However, for the hands-on homeowner who works on various projects, adequate lighting is crucial. It can be difficult to get any work done in a dark or dim area. Although many homeowners resort to fluorescent tubes to light their garages, there are other options for those who desire something a little out of the ordinary.

Recessed Lighting

Recessed lighting, or can lights, are not just for the inside of the home. They look great and add polish to even the most basic garage. You don’t have to settle for just a few lights. Many people place them strategically throughout the entire garage. Brighten up your garage with a dozen or more. Add flexibility by connecting lights to multiple light switches so you can adjust the lighting as needed.

Linkable Lighting

Linkable lighting is a unique way to light up a garage. It consist of 48” long lights that link together in various configurations. It’s adjustable, allowing you to add on at any time in order to light up virtually any open space. It can link up to three lights in any direction, for a total of nine lights. It’s a simple way for homeowners to get the amount of lighting they desire.


For those who want to save energy and keep costs low, a skylight makes perfect sense – even in the garage. There is nothing comparable to natural light. You can outfit a skylight with blinds so you can control the amount of light that enters the garage. An added benefit is that skylights also provide ventilation, unlike other types of lighting. Too cold to open the garage door? Just crack open the skylight and let in the fresh air.

Hanging Lights

These work lights are ideal for lighting up dim areas in the garage. They offer bright light suspended from a hanging chain. They are easy to install and require no wiring.
