Yeah, that's exactly what I'm finding out. I've also learned that point-source light makes the problem worse.

Like I mentioned previously, if I had it to do over, I'd make the ceiling out of translucent plastic and use many small lights above the translucent plastic.

So far, the lucite covered lights seem to be the best candidate... maybe use 4 of them.

LED strips might be appropriate, too.


I'm not an HVAC technician. In fact, I'm barely even a hacker...
