What experts liked
This 52-inch, flush-mount indoor ceiling fan is a great choice for large rooms (maximum size: 400 square-feet) where ceiling height is limited. The reversible blades are finished with maple on one side, and walnut on the other – choose dark or light, to match your décor and preference. The built-in, frosted opal schoolhouse light fixture requires a medium-base bulb, and the fan may be set at low, medium, or high speed.

All blades are reversible, combo finished (maple and walnut), and draw power from a quiet multi-capacitor motor that maximizes air movement whilst cooling. You do not have to worry about noise pollution and or power issues, as is always the case with poorly designed fans. Buyers also like its frosted schoolhouse light fixture (frosted), convenient wall controls, and the durable and low maintenance technology use.

This is a beautiful ceiling blade boasting excellent reversible blades which have a walnut finish for unsurpassed durability. It comes with an integrated opal schoolhouse fixture which adds to its unique design making it quite appealing. With low, medium and high-speed options which are, of course, reversible, you can never go wrong with this ceiling fan

The 5 reversible blades have maple finish on one side and walnut finish on the other. You can then just rotate the blade to change the color of this fan. It adds much to the ambiance and looks of your room. Bright finished brushed nickel boasts of the exquisite craftsmanship that have put into making this powerful ceiling fan. Flush mount installation for a low ceiling that fits a room measuring 20ft × 20ft. A medium base bulb at the center with a 60W of power creates a comfortable light setting that you require.
