If you watch HGTV or read a lot of blogs, you know that a ceiling fan is a big decorating no-no. I know I’d prefer to have a pretty chandelier in my bedroom over my bed, but it is hot here and I like to sleep in comfort, so a ceiling fan is a must for us.
Tell the truth, do you have ceiling fans in your home? I know I’m not the only one out there who has one (or more) and really doesn’t want to live without it (or them).
Our old bedroom ceiling fan started to make a lot of noise. It’s been on every night that we’ve slept in this house and we’ve been married since 1994. The former owners installed it, so who knows how many years this fan has truly been used. We looked and looked and couldn’t find one that we both liked (or that I could at least tolerate).
This is our old fan. I know that some of you are shuddering in horror at the brass.
When Mr. SP took the fan down, he discovered that the former owner of the house had done a little fan update. The upper portion of the blades show this beautiful pattern. Can you imagine the ugliness when the fan was new?
The new fan is very quiet and quite powerful. We also like that it brightens our room a lot more than the old one did.
Fans may not be stylish, but for us they are a necessity.
So, fess up, do you have one or more?
