After several trips to Lowe’s and lots of waffling back and forth, we decided on this beauty. It took us much longer than we had planned on in order to install our gold-design-free ceiling fan because there were a few flaws in one of the blades, but after quite a bit of time (and, admittedly, some swearing and throwing things) we managed to get it up. This fan is so much more appropriately scaled for the room, and we love the more modern look.
It’s (much) larger than our old fan, a beautiful dark color, and a much more streamlined and simple fan than the old one. It really almost just fades into the background which, really, is all you can ask for from a ceiling fan.
And it has some seriously beautiful industrial touches, like these giant faux screws that are on the blades: Of course, had we known about the gold design etched on the other side of the blades on our old ceiling fan, we probably would have kept it up. We definitely prefer that to the in-your-face-totally-outdated look of the old fan! Our list of light fixtures to replace is slowly dwindling – I have hope that some day we’ll actually like all of the lights in our home…wouldn’t that be nice? Anyone else have to have ceiling fans in your home, even if they aren’t the most attractive design choice?
Along with the super fun kitchen lighting we recently installed, we also did a little updating to the fan located between the Kitchen and the Living Room.
I have spent hundreds of dollars just updating ceiling fans.
I don’t really mind ceiling fans and I actually keep all of mine running on low through the entire summer.
But this one is custom wired to work by a fancy wall mounted system.
As you can see, it dropped down pretty low into the space.Replace the light bulbs and turn on your ceiling fan at the light switch.Our ceiling fan light kits are designed to fit specific models of Casa Vieja brand fans only.Turn off your ceiling fan at the light switch before removing the light bulbs from the shades, if your glass shades are open at the bottom.Loosen the thumb screws holding the shades to the fan, and take one to a home improvement center or lighting store to find the correct replacement size.
