Kitchen Fans

We replaced both lights in our kitchen with matching ceiling fans. The kitchen is on the corner of the house that gets the most sun. Consequently, it is especially warm on that corner of the house during the summer. Ceiling fans should help the kitchen be a comfortable place to work in year round.

Plus, the Professor kept hitting his head on this light:
And he was offended by the fact that he couldn't use fluorescents with the light. I'm not sure what the plan for this light is. I may spray paint it because I don't really like yellow brassiness. We're going to have quite a collection of older lights and I'm going to have to figure out what to do with them. We do have a lot of bare light bulbs hanging out upstairs - so some of them may go up there.

And here is the ceiling fan we replaced. It wasn't too bad, but it definitely needs to be cleaned. It may be used in a bedroom upstairs or it may get retired. We're not sure yet.

The Professor put the fans together:

We chose the ceiling fan because the blades match our cabinets perfectly:

The body of the lamp matches the hardware of the cabinets:

Now both lights in the kitchen/back entry area are the same:
I think the matching ceiling fans help to tie the two rooms of the kitchen area together. The lights won't be as yellow once we get some fluorescents in them.

The pull chains even let you know which is which:Aren't they cute?
