Ceiling fan lighting for bedroom

Posted by queenskitchen (My Page) on

All of the ceiling fans seem to be either single 100w, double 60 watt or 4-40 watt. THat doesn't seem like enough overhead lighting.

What do you recommend for overhead lighting for a 16x13 bedroom. The walls are purplish grey. we will have small desk lamps (40 watt or so).

I like a fan with 4-40 watt bulbs, will this be "enough" lighting?

Not if you intend to do extensive reading there. A 40 watt incandescent light bulb produces 350 to 400 lumens. Unless you're willing to put up with table lamps spotlighting a small area, you need to use other light sources such as floor torchieres.
