downrod size for ceiling fan
I've posted this in the lighting section and haven't received any answers as of yet and figured i'd give it a try over here.
we're going to have a ceiling fan installed in our living room in our new build and are not sure what size downrod to purchase. our ceilings are vaulted and then flattens out at the top at 17 feet. the worker at the lighting store said a 48" downrod will be perfect (making the fan blades still 12 feet of the ground...(4 ft. downrod + 1 ft. for fan motor) is that right? i was thinking maybe a 60", but I have no idea. i'm hoping to hear some other opinions before we make the purchase. thanks!
