LA's Totally Awesome Bleach

I enjoy having ceiling fans in my home. I don't think that they're eyesores at all, and who will want to waste their time staring at the ceiling anyway? It's important that you clean and dust them on a regular basis. The reasons why they would shake and rattle is because the materials typically used to make the blades will eventually warp, due to moisture that's in the air. The real eyesores are the "stylish" new ceiling fan designs featured in the pictures above. I find those new ceiling fan designs (like almost all of today's modern home designs) to be pretentious, and will likely not age well. Time to go back to the basics.

i would be very weary of buying a casablanca fan with only a remote control and not both a wall switch and remote. i have had nothing but problems with the remote control after 3 months.
