Iíll go against the grain on this and vote for a variant of the Chauvet SlimPar Pro.  Decent output, runs silent, no flicker problems that Iíve run into yet, and reasonable dimming for its price.

+1
Even the cheaper non-pro series SlimPar H6 or others are good. I have those and a couple of the CorePAR 80 lights.
The CorePAR lights are COB (single chip) and produce a very bright, consistent wash. They're great for wall wash and they come with a focusing lens for 2 beam spread settings. They're only RGB though and so can't produce a good warm white light like the RGBAW/UV SlimPar H6 can.

Found this on eBay.

Same light. They're all over ebay with different wattage ratings listed. There are a new crop of them out now that are RBGA (amber instead of white). I'm thinking about buying some of these. These lights have very noisy fans though, so I still don't recommend them for weddings.

Cables and wires can be overcome with the DMX wireless to get you around the doors and fire exits.  I have 2 transmitters 1 x 3 receivers and 1 x 4 receivers.  They are a big help in getting around the doors and walls to remove the wires.  power cords can be from the outlets around the room.  The data wire was the problem for connecting the DMX lights.  If the wall lighting is static and not changing color than you should be able to skip the data connection and set them to a single color and leave them.  But there would be no control.   DMX allows the control to brighten or Dim and to on and off as needed.  Change colors for various needs.

Battery powered wireless DMX uplights are very easy to use.  Except that they are more expensive and a lot heavier.

That's the way I wanted to go. Budget wants to go another way.

And who is going to recharge and deploy them?

Cost puts rechargeable lights out of consideration. I'll be deploying them. And fine tuning them. We do have an inhouse AV company. They can rent them out and adjust per client.

I've gone with the Chauvet FreedomPar hex4 for my uplighting.
I used to run power and dmx to the PARs I had before, but the setup time, available power outlets and possible trip hazards led me to the wireless battery powered devices.
Now it takes 5 minutes to deploy 10 up lights.  Batteries last 6-8 hrs.
This has more than paid for itself, plus they are rentable (easy setup, hard to screw up).
Full disclosure, I'm a Chauvet dealer.

Need some recommendations as lighting is not my forte. Got a request to look into getting some room lights. LED's on the floor to make the walls look pretty for weddings/conventions etc. Non critical and they won't be travelling. Cheap is the key but they do need some power as the room has 35 -40 foot ceiling.

I found this. Seems to have the same power on paper as my Rush MH-2's which are very bright and as a bonus, they move.

May not be the best solution since the fan probably makes noise.
I would suggest and recommend you to try some online search engines and online product catalog that only showing high quality LED lighting products from top brands worldwide such as www.lightingarena.com or http://www.lighting.philips.com or www.archiexpo.com
Then you and compare and decide what is best for you

But the OP said cheap is the key.
Also, who determines the 'high quality'?
