a long overdue ceiling fan upgrade for the kitchen

by | May 31, 2009 | House

We have been wanting to replace the old light fixture in the kitchen with a ceiling fan for awhile now, but other projects took priority, you know, like three bathrooms worth of wallpaper removal.

Three visits to Lowe’s in the last several weeks and we couldn’t agree on a ceiling fan we both liked, so after church today, we wandered by the lighting department to see if anything looked good.

We picked up a 42″ 3-blade modern-ish fan with a light kit included and were pleasantly surprised to get a rebate receipt when we checked out. Because we bought this fan on this visit, we got a $20 gift card rebate. Score!

See how procrastination can sometimes pay off?  :)

old kitchen light
old light – not our style (a swag chain, really?) and doesn’t cool the room effectively

new modern ceiling fan and light
new fan – lights the room and creates much needed air movement

No worries about the fan blades not matching the other wood color because one of our next projects is going to be refacing the kitchen cabinets!
