Lighting a Studio (to see what you're doing, not for the image)

Studio-noobie question:  How do you all Light Your Studio, so you can work, when using Strobes?

Especially if your building has built-in very green or warm tinted room-lighting lights -- do you cut power to your room lighting, before shooting & shoot basically in the dark?  Or do you just ignore the small amount of added color, trusting your strobes will overwhelm it and it won't show on your subjects skin or white or dark areas?  How do you deal with this, when you're using small amounts of lighting, without making it creepy dark to work in the room?

Whats your constant studio room-lighting setup, when using strobes?

What's the maximum amount of room-light you can work under, before you get annoyed by it, when doing lower-powered work?  Are there any recommended solutions?
