How do I determine how much light I will need to properly illuminate a space?
Square footage x 1.5 = approximate wattage required
For example, if you are looking to illuminate a 10â€™ x 10â€™ space, determine the square footage (10 x 10 = 100) and multiply that number by 1.5. In this case, 100 x 1.5 = 150. Thus, you will need approximately 150 watts to properly illuminate that space.
