Celing fan w/light...what kind? & how many watts of light?
When the electricians were roughing in our electrical in our new home, I was a bit overwhelmed. So when it came to the bedrooms I told them to just wire them all for a ceiling fan/light.
But, now I'm having a hard time finding a fan that I like that seems it will be bright enough to light up the rooms good.
I prefer the bowl shaped light, but most of those take only 2 60 watt bulbs at the most. That just doesn't seem like much to me. Especially for the north-facing rooms. I may just have to go with the type that has the globes hang down.
So how many watts/bulbs do you think I will need in each bedroom? I'd hate to get them all installed and then have to have them all switched out!
Also...when buying the fans, how do I know I got the right kind. The electricians wired them all with a switch on the wall so I don't have to try to reach up to pull a chain. Is there a certain type of fan I need to make sure it will run on a wall switch?
