I haven’t shared a DIY/Home post in quite some time. To be honest we haven’t added/done much in our home lately. We have been so busy that any home projects have been put on the back burner. I reached out to my friends at Lamps Plus recently because I’m going to be brutally honest here… I was sick and tired of looking at our builder grade lighting in our home. We have beautiful floors and high baseboards (in the main rooms–the bedrooms are still missing them), but we still have a lot of builder grade items that are driving me insane. And the lighting is numero uno on the list of driving me crazy. The first room I wanted to upgrade lighting in was our family room. I spend hours in that room a day starring at the gross builder grade fan.
I selected the 60″ Casa Largo Oil-Brushed Bronze Ceiling Fan from Lamps Plus. I loved the design and that it was 60″ long. I needed a larger fan since it’s a larger room. I also opted for an 18″ down rod since we have vaulted ceilings. One of my biggest complaints from our past fan was that I would turn it on and you could never feel it on because it was so small and so high up on the ceiling. Now when you turn on the fan, just on low, you can actually feel it!
This is the before and after… I can’t get over the transformation. I knew I needed a fan but I also needed a ceiling light. So this was the perfect combo. And the style–I’m so in love!
I love how it’s transformed our family room and it’s making it one step closer to feeling like its our home.
And here is one more before and after to give you an idea of the dramatic change. If you are in the market for a new fan I highly suggest Lamps Plus. They have hundreds of ceiling fan options! We have shopped with them in the past for our old home and we love the quality (and service)!
