We framed knee walls in our attic and want to use the areas behind them for storage. These areas are triangular in cross-section, about 3' high at the knee wall, and of course the ceiling hits the floor at the other end.
What's a safe, cheap way to light these areas?
There's plenty of accessible wiring and framing to secure it to; the question is what kind of lights. First I bought just regular light sockets with the pull chain that attach to a round ceiling box. But now I'm worried that bumping into one of these with my head or shoulder will break the bulb off, creating a mess and an electrical hazard. I heard about a kind of cage that protects the bulb but I can't find anything like that at the big box stores. Florescent tube lights might be the right shape but probably too much light and cost. I'm not really interested in battery-powered lights.
What would you do here?
