I went with bulbs, including three with reflectors and super bright. One over the work area and the table saw. Another in the garage. Got a mix of the 2800K and 4000K to get a nice mix. Many other bulbs and some strip lights in corners.
During Christmas, you can get small on/off remotes that can control all your lights with ease. I bought one of each frequency and use them for odd functions. In the theater, one turns on a special spotlight on the speaker, so we can dim lights for PowerPoints, but still see the speaker.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
