Updating ceiling fan light kit

Posted by jwalker678 (My Page) on

I have a couple of very nice ceiling fans with light kits that are dated and no longer fit the decor of the rooms. The fans are a shiny gold finish and It seems all the light kits now, or at least the ones I like, are silver. I hate to replace the fan but would a silver/gold combo look odd?

I don't think I would like the combo. Some kits have multiple color pieces inside the box. I have included a link for one.

I know this because I had to return several earlier this year : )
I was not able to find kits that fit my older fans ( maybe 10 years old..). If you fans are more than a few years old you may want to take down one fixture and take it shopping with you.

Here is a link that might be useful: ceiling fan with multiple color finials

You could spray paint the ceiling fans.

I would paint the fan or get a new one.
