ceiling fan light is open, can see down into it from balcony
I'm not sure if there is a solution to this problem, but I figure this forum is the best place to search for one! We just installed a huge 68' Hampton Bay ceiling fan (model: Altura) in our 18' great room. Surrounding the great room is a balcony and staircase. When you are on the balcony, you can see down into the light fixture and see the light bulbs which is really bothering me. Plus, bugs land in there and being so high up, cleaning it it is hard to do. I called the manufacturer and was told that this light fixture is the only one that will fit our fan. Do you think I could have something fabricated by a glass company to fix the problem, or is that a crazy idea? Here is a picture of the fan (it's taken with my phone, so the quality isn't very good. I apologize).
Thanks for you help!
