If you are in a position where you do not have the option to completely change out your fan, I have some other options for you. These options include changing certain aspects of the fans appearance.
Option #1 – Change the fans glass shades.
1) Changing the fans glass shades can completely upgrade your fans appearance. However, keep in mind that not all fans are the same size.
