Garage wall/ceiling color

I'm in the final stages of building my garage and need to decide on a color for the walls and ceiling. My only concern is picking the best color for detailing. Is there any color that is better than white? Somebody was telling me that autobody shops like a light yellow for how it reflects light but I'm thinking pure white is a safe bet, any thoughts? Thx.

I would go with white, unless you have really good lightning where you can put another color and wont make it look to dark...

Don't have any advice to offer, but I'd love to see pictures of the mancave when it's complete.

Go with a white or off white and make an accent wall in a different color like gray or blue.

I'll probably go with a basic white. I have a fair bit of lighting so it should be pretty damn bright with all the lights on.

I would go with a flat or eggshell, so you have reflection of light, not shine, from the walls.
