Purchased this chandelier to replace the ceiling fan we have in our living room since we don't use the fan. I double measured to make sure it would look fine in our space based on other reviews of the chandelier being bigger than expected. I measured based on the span of our ceiling fan. Package arrived and the box was big. I figured the chandelier had be a bit smaller than the packaging. Opened up the packaging and held the chandelier up to were the ceiling fan was and it was enormous. Then my husband pointed out that we would never use the chandelier for lighting anyways since we had recessed lighting... I completely forgot about the recessed lighting. The chandelier went back. It was nice but too big for our living room even if we did not have recessed lighting.
I shopped Lowe's,HomeDepot and the specialty lighting stores and could not find the right wet rated fan. This MinkaAire has beautiful lines and the finish is perfect. The installation instructions were well written and easy to follow. My ceiling it fairly high, so I anticipated running into problems carrying a heavy motor up the ladder, but this fan was not that heavy and very easy to mount quickly before making the electrical connections. I saved big time by buying on Overstock and then saved installation costs on top of that.
