Easy Ways To Change The Look Of Your Ceiling Fans

by Melinda Collins

Ceiling fans are expensive. Instead of running out and buying a new one because you don't like the one you currently have, upgrade it instead. It's easy and not that expensive to change the look of your ceiling fan into something you like.

Change the Blades

There are many different ways to change the blades on your ceiling fan. Here are some of the most popular changes you can make to the fan blades.

  • Paint: This is one of the easiest changes you can make to your ceiling fan. Unscrew the fan blades, pick a color, and paint.
  • Blade covers: You can buy ceiling blade covers that easily slip over your current blades. Most of them are in a palm style, but there are others to choose from as well.
  • Decals: If you are crafty, you can paint a fun design on your existing fan blades or you can quickly and easily change the look with decals.

Change the Lights

Maybe you actually like the blades on your fan, or maybe you want to change both the blades and the lights. This is another fairly inexpensive way to quickly change the look of your ceiling fan. There are ceiling kits available for a single light or multiple lights. From there you can choose different types of glass and designs.

Change the Hardware

You may have a beautiful fan with beautiful lights, but the hardware is ugly. You can transform it from outdated to something stylish by changing the hardware. You can change the color or change the style, for example, from traditional to ultra-modern. There are endless possibilities with hardware that can change the entire look of the fan.


Using some of the methods above, you can easily transform your boring ceiling fan to a themed ceiling fan. Combine skateboard blades with a bright paint color, and you have a fun ceiling fan for a teenager. Change a dark-wood ceiling fan to clean white and pop on palm blade covers, and you have a bright, beach-themed ceiling fan. The possibilities are endless!

So don't spend tons of money buying a new fan just because your old one is outdated. If you spend a little time, you can get a new look without much effort. You can change the blades, change the bulbs, change the hardware or do all three to transform your old fan to a more modern-looking fan for very little money. Contact a business, such as HSA Handyman Services, for help if you don't feel comfortable doing this kind of work on your own.   


About Me

Call Me The Faucet Queen

I always dreamed of becoming an interior decorator, but I never thought I'd end up focusing exclusively on bathroom designs. My early work included plenty of living room and kitchen designs, but I always spent the most time and effort on my bathroom plans. Years of work renovating my own three powder rooms gave me lots of experience in choosing the right fixtures - especially faucets. I kept getting leak problems due to mismatching plumbing, so now I volunteer to help all my friends get their design done right when installing a new bathtub or replacing the sink. I don't get a lot of chances to use my expertise in faucets and I figured I'd bring my knowledge online to share it.
