While waiting for the new furniture to be delivered, I installed a variety of new light fixtures and ceiling fans on the main level of the house. Previously, the house had original ceiling fans that were tacky gold and laminate wood in the sitting room and white in the sun room. The new fans have dark wood blades that compliment the colors and wood of the floors and furniture added with the remodel.
I also replaced the contractor grade lighting in the entryway and the somewhat generic lighting in the dining room with much more interesting fixtures that add character to the house and really change the look for people first coming through the front door.
I still need to replace the dining room lights, but this was a solid first step to improving all of the house’s ceiling light fixtures.
