Finding the Right Fan Online

When it comes to the idea of buying or replacing a few ceiling fans, most people think it is as simple as picking out a style they like in-store or online and just purchasing it….period. Sometimes it is that easy. You just buy the fan and have someone else install it. But a growing number of homeowners and DYIers, who have been squeezed financially for every last dollar they own, are opting to do the work themselves. That includes the total demolition of rooms, the full renovation of rooms, the decoration of rooms, and so forth. Sometimes in the process of revamping an entire room, ideas and measurements and dreams become confused. And the eyes can’t always judge correctly what an exact dimension or measurement truly needs to be, in order for an installation of some sorts to work.

Furthermore, most homeowners are being forced to purchase their products online, as brick and mortar stores are folding and closing left and right. Just recently it was announced that Walmart, JC Penny, Macy’s and Sears were closing hundreds of stores. When it comes to purchasing fans online – suddenly the world becomes complicated. Most manufacturers sell their fans online in pieces. Why? Because consumers can now pick out their motors, blades, light kits and remotes at the click of a link, and thus, e-stores have managed to magnify the shopping experience to a whole new level of confusion. Consumers are given a wide array of choices online – yet sans the friendly in-store sales person to guide them, and without an ability to be able to ‘physically see’ and inspect the items they plan to purchase.

BLOG-REMOTE
Is your ceiling sloped? What angle ratio does a sloped down rod allow for? Do you want a wet location fan? Do you need the hand remote or the wall unit? Would you like an additional light kit attachment? How many down rods come with the unit? Does it come with blades or are they sold separately? Must the fan be hardwired in? What does the canopy look like? Is the fan motor one speed or three speed? Is it reversible speed?  Is the light kit dimmable? What finishes does the fan come in? What are the replaceable parts? What’s the warranty? What are the glass shade choices on the light kits?

A lot of times, the ‘online details’ regarding all these questions are NOT provided by the manufacturers, nor the stores selling the products. And that’s because people are magically supposed to know what they want when they’re shopping – just by looking at the provided one or two web pictures of the ‘whole product’. A large majority of people never even think to ask half of the questions we’ve just listed. And quite often, customers will see the same picture listed for several different finishes and are then left to wade through the product details to make sure that what they’re looking at – is exactly what they’re expecting to get – because the description says black finish but the picture shows chrome. Yes, these days, finding the right fan online can suddenly become a nightmare project. What’s a human to do?

One could simply sit quietly for a moment with a notepad in hand…or cellphone for that matter, and make notes to oneself from within the room space one desires to put the fan. It would be ideal to list the things you think you want before you begin the online shopping process. Here are a few tips to start you off…

BLOG-Incognito

Do you want your fan to hang incognito or be a decorative room feature?
What are the dimensions of your room? How high is your ceiling?
Will your fan need to give off light? You’ll need one that can host a light kit.
Go for a high quality quality fan. Cheap fans wobble and don’t circulate air well.
Don’t know what a quality fan brand is? Review them at: www.consumerreports.org
A fan should be elevated at least 8′ – 9′ from the ground.
Do you want a wall remote control? Some remotes are sold separately.
Find out how many down rods come with the fan and which sizes they are.
If you plan to add a light kit – make sure the circuit can handle both the fan and the light.
If your ceiling is sloped, make sure the canopy is designed specifically for sloped ceilings.
Be sure to look at the size of the fan blades. The full diameter is then usually (x2).
If the fan is hung high up in a double story room, get a remote and extra down rods.
If you are hanging it on a porch or patio, you’ll want a ‘wet rated’ fan.

Returns are no fun for anyone; not the customer returning it, nor the e-store selling it, nor the manufacturer receiving an item back. Doing a little pre-thought before rushing out to purchase online can save you lots of hassle in the long run. Most e-stores have ‘chat’ and provide a customer service phone number. Use those features. Sometimes one phone call or quick ‘chat in’ can nip any future purchase issues in the bud – by getting you all the information you need – before the point of purchase!

All About Wall Mount Lighting

One of the most difficult aspects of DYI home décor projects for home owners is in figuring out the proper lighting for each room. Every room in the home will have its specific needs and aside from having multiple bedrooms, (where one could repeat a pattern for installing lighting), almost every room requires a little pre-thought before ‘fixture purchasing’.

Feiss-Kenny

There are multiple considerations that can overwhelm DYIers and  often, those saddled with managing the room’s lighting task, if not a professional lighting expert; they tend to give up in frustration mid-way through a project. Consequently, a greatly furnished room may dim in comparison to its poor lighting plan. So how does one go about planning to adequately and properly light a room?

It might be helpful to first separate oneself from the trend that everyone follows and think more about if the room lighting will be task related or will be used more to create a certain ambience or mood. The popular trend these days leans toward installing dimmable, recessed down lights everywhere. It’s easy to see why there is a large scale movement to follow the trend. Recessed cans lighten up a room from above, while simultaneously removing the décor nightmare of having to figuring out just where to appropriately place the table and floor lamps.

When household rooms are very small, the real estate is precious and ceiling lights are the most efficient way to eliminate the limited-room-to-store-things issue. People naturally think that by laying out two general light lines in a ceiling will cover the rooms lighting needs. But most people are not experts in lighting, and therefore they often make poor choices when selecting canned lighting. Perhaps they chose an inexpensive series, which can mean less sufficient light output. Or they find that after installation, that while the center of the room is lit, strangely, the walls are all dark. Recessed lighting has its merits. But more often than not, they require a little help from their side pals – mainly, wall sconces. When it comes to some rooms, some just may require wall mount lighting.

In a bathroom, wall fixtures are almost necessary. Down lights alone will cast shadows onto the sides of the face, which makes putting on makeup a bit of a tricky task. Wall sconces will minimize shadows from overhead. They can even out the walls in a large, high ceiling living room where recessed cans have been installed. Placing recessed cans too high up can cause a dark space in the center of the room, especially when they are not strong enough to stream light down far enough into the room. In a kitchen, where food preparation also requires bright light, overhead cans become almost the accessory, whereas task and accent lights are the true necessities.

Adding to the confusion, are the shifts and changes in the actual bulb industry. The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 required most screw-in light bulbs to use 27 percent less energy by 2014. LED’s, CFL’s and some halogens began replacing incandescents. But then suddenly everyone had to begin to understand Lumens, Kelvin’s and the CRI (Color rendering index). Things used to be so simple.

What’s a homeowner to do? It won’t hurt to first just go online and look up e-commerce lighting stores. Extract ideas from images you see on Houzz. Search the top brand manufacturers and view their webpages. Most of them have inspiration galleries. Look at the way designers promote their design skills on their websites. Just where do they tend to place the lighting in a room? If you notice, many of them incorporate several lighting sources per room. Try to find a room image online similar to the room you want to light. Use the extensive visual galleries to gather your ideas. Take a look at not only the layout of the ceiling lights, but where the accent and wall lighting is as well. Look to see how the light streams from each fixture. One can take a lot of great ideas just from pictures alone. Most importantly, consider the benefits of a wall sconce. They remain on the wall, up off the floor. They provide all the side lighting you’ll need. They come in thousands of styles and colors. They can be dimmable. And by adding in a few wall lights, you can have greater control over your room lighting, by having separate controls.

Create a Lush Landscape with Light

You’ve driven by them hundreds of times and they’ve always caught your eye. They are those homes in the neighborhood that just scream ‘cut above the rest’. The entire mantle of curbside grass is a deep, even-toned and lustrous green. The cement sidewalk area is crystal clean, immaculately trimmed and there are no telltale cracks of neglect. A few floral beds are spaciously and appropriately placed. The light fixtures seem perfectly placed no matter where you look. And interestingly enough; it makes no difference whether you drive by during the day or the night. The property is beautiful no matter what time you pass by or what angle of view you take in. In fact at night, the location gleams with a warmth so inviting, you simply want to pull over and go meet the people who live there.

Just what constitutes the difference between generally well kept lawns and those which stand out as stellar icons of neighborhood beauty? What is that one element of stardom that makes that property dazzle so brightly over all others? Sometimes what the eye sees, the eye doesn’t really see at all. Sometimes the illusion of beauty is created from that which can’t be easily detected.

Take landscape lighting for instance. Much of what the eye visually sees is light emitting from hidden fixtures embedded into side walls or in the ground.  Well contoured bushes are illuminated from side posts and lanterns. A singular statue might be illuminated from the ground up, casting interesting dimensions not seen during the day.

Anyone can create a lush landscape with light, and it does not necessarily mean that to do so requires extensive planning or the hiring of professionals. Sometimes, just taking some time to review what is on your property with a small sketchbook in hand, can help to create a wondrous dream-scape before it actualizes. Sometimes, it’s not all about figuring out transformers and counting and voltage requirements. One can start, simply with an artist’s eye. What specifically needs light? Where would you like extra light? What specific parts of your yard would you like to highlight and why?

With a little sketchbook planning, and a little online fixture shopping, you can gain mastery over your landscape with just a few easy to install outdoor fixtures. Outdoor lighting is not the great mystery everyone thinks it is. To think like an artist, one must begin to see in a different way. Artists take in their entire environment before they begin a painting. They choose what they want as a focal point and build a painting around it. Begin by making note of your existing lights. Are they properly placed on the building? Are they ready for replacement? Do they need supportive light and if so, where could you place on the building, that additional support light?

Visually inspect the surrounding trees and shrubs. Are there any exiting garden decorations and could they use some illumination? Decide whether you want these items to reflect or absorb light. Estimate loosely, the height of your foliage. Do you have an illuminated walkway anywhere on the property? If not, perhaps it’s time to consider lighting up the walk. Transformers are not always needed. There is a huge array of solar path lights now available on the market. It is the easiest landscape lighting to install as there are no cords to be hidden, nor transformers to rig up. With careful positioning, solar fixtures can be an instant additional to any lawn-scape. Just one string of path lighting can reflect immeasurable change to the overall look of the property.

Sometimes it pays to take a few moments to dream, to think and to plan. It’s not hard. It can be fun. And part of the beauty of landscape lighting is that you can do it in bits and pieces – all throughout the summer season. Dressing up your property should be an activity of love. We all know how good it feels to start an project you know you can finish in a short amount of time. We all know the satisfaction of completing a task. So go fixture by fixture. Sometimes, that’s all it takes to make great change.

The Beauty of Portable Lamps

As information technology has changed the way we live; so too have we adopted the idea of modernizing everything electronically in this world, including all aspects of home decor. Our cars and phones speak to us. Our computers and TV’s captivate us mentally and emotionally. Our homes are wired for remote controls or are completely wireless. Amidst the permanence of such internal wiring, e.g. track and recessed lights, in our technological haze, we’ve actually limited our personal freedom by taking the joy out of an occasional and on-the-spot room re-design.

For those who absolutely MUST move the furniture around the room once every other month – dealing with immovable lighting can sometimes limit how you can rearrange that room. If you install a gorgeous foyer chandelier for example, chances are you won’t replace it for over a decade at least. What if you choose to redecorate in five years and have decided that you’d now like wall mount lighting? Perhaps you’ve installed two pricey entertainment room chandeliers for over the pool table/bar area, when it suddenly dawned on you after installation,  that you should have thought the room out a little better and gone for a couple of lighted ceiling fans instead?

B-QUOIZEL
Once made permanent,  you can’t move your ceiling lighting about. The beauty of portable lamps, such as table and floor lamps, is that you have the ability to easily shift the color and ambiance of any room, by changing the lighting angles and bulbs within your rooms’ portable light sources. It’s not so fun to get up on a ladder to change out twelve ceiling bulbs, but a table lamp bulb change is a breeze.

Colored light bulbs are another creative option that only portable lamps can offer; especially for those occasions where you desire to create a particular mood or room ambience. In fact, colored lights are one of the easiest ways to decorate a home for the holidays and can create quite a dramatic effect by using several of them in one room. Blue bulbs will create a cool and calm effect whereas red and orange bulbs are known for creating an atmosphere of warmth and comfort. Colored light bulbs are very affordable and can even be used outdoors.

If you’re not into using colored bulbs, knowing just a little bit about bulb types can help to create a special effect for a room. For instance, frosted or pearlized bulbs tend to provide softer, more shadow-free light. These bulbs work best when the lamp shade is of a light or very pale color. In this case, you can use the maximum wattage available and not fear too much brightness.  It’s best to always use energy-saving bulbs in the house, in rooms such as the living room, kitchen and bedroom; whereas it’s wiser to use the more gray-white light of fluorescent bulbs for the basement, garage or utility rooms.

B-QUOIZEL-2
Most portable lamps are constructed with a convenient cord and plug attachment, which allows the fixture to be ready for use without having the need of an electrician for installation. They are generally inexpensive to purchase, easily replaced and can be moved frequently to and from any room in the house. Even more exciting for those who just can’t stop fiddling with a room’s decor; portable lamps allow for easy shade changes. Changing out just a few lamp shades can change the entire look of the room – sans the cost of major re-decorating! A few pillow changes, curtain changes and lampshade changes can completely renew a stale environment and will go a long way toward brightening anyone’s day.

Optimizing Your Workspace

When selecting storage shelves for your office or workspace, open book shelves are plentiful and come in many styles and shapes and therefore, are often quite tempting to buy. However, any kind of open book shelf means that everything stacked upon it or within it will be under close scrutiny by house guests, and in this case, there’s no hiding a messy pile of papers. Here are a few tips for optimizing your workspace:

BLOG-1
Use One Great Masking System

Choosing a closed door cabinet system, enables you to hide-store your messy ‘to do’ piles for another time. The closed doors will enable the room to appear more organized, and oftentimes, when one feels organized, one tends to actually become more productive, ironic as that sounds.

BLOG-2Choose a Glass Desk Set

A glass desk actually allows the eye to see through to the whole room, which often gives the illusion of more room space. By choosing a 3 piece L shaped desk unit, you have the option of separating the pieces and thus, you have the option to redecorate every few months. Glass desks are relatively lightweight and easy to move around, when separated. Look for ones that allow you to flip the L part to either side. Or choose a glass table that can double as a dining set.

BLOG3
Consider The Importance of the Office Chair

Let’s face it – if you’re not comfortable, you won’t stay seated for very long. Choose a roomy, supportive chair that offers a selection of chair positions and heights. Choose something you won’t sweat in, won’t slip in, and won’t slouch in. Be sure that the chairs wheels move easily and glide into several directions effortlessly.

BLOG4
Add an Easy to Clean Touch of Color, Area Rug

A great way to take the boredom out standard office furniture, especially when you are working with closed cabinets  is to enhance the room with a bright and contemporary styled area rug.  Not only are area rugs easy to remove and clean, they can be laid out on a variable of diagonals to create an off symmetry look – just for fun. Selecting a busier pattern with many colors will help hide the traffic dirt.

BLOG5
Accent Pieces Double as Storage

It’s always lovely to have a few accent pieces in the room, but who says they should just be adornments? Choose decorative nested boxes or covered vases that will hold additional items, such as pens, paper clips, etc. There will be plenty of additional places to organize your office goods, if you select wisely and use several sets in a room.

Dining vs. Foyer Chandeliers

The world of chandelier shopping can be daunting when homeowners begin to shop for their very first one. A chandelier purchase will not only enhance a room aesthetically, but when properly fit to the dimensions of a room, it is an efficient way to illuminate a large area. Let’s look at the most typical aspects of choosing a chandelier that most confuses customers; by examining the difference between dining and foyer chandeliers. Is there a difference between them?

BLOG-Crystorama-2-luna-mt

Crystorama – Luna Collection

Foyer chandeliers, like dining lights can range in size. However, manufacturers often craft their large chandeliers, stretching them to over-sized versions in order to properly accommodate grand-style foyer entrances. Some foyers, especially the ones found in mini mansions can tower height-wise past two floors; thus requiring a fixture size large enough to be able to shower the area with the appropriate light.

With dining lighting, consideration is also given to over-the-table height, including the value of overall room lighting. Since lighting is an important element in any room, a little bit of time spent deciding on a fixture for a room and where to place it, is never time wasted. Chandeliers are a great addition to just about any room. They will provide excellent light coverage and can add decorative flavor to a well designed room. However, the rules of where to hang a chandelier vary by room and for novices; that can be a tricky thing to try to figure out. The truth of the matter is that there is no hard-defining difference between dining and foyer chandeliers, except for sizing and many of today’s chandelier styles can be utilized for either room.

Foyer Chandeliers

The entryway or foyer is your guest’s first impression of your home. One initial and important consideration should be the fixture styling, especially if it is the very last item you place in your foyer. The fixture should not only blend well with the home décor overall, but should help to open up the entry space via its ability to illuminate. There are several fixture styles to choose from, such as: Asian, art deco, contemporary, country, industrial, rustic, transitional, urban and traditional, just to mention a few. If you’re not sure what style your home actually is, since now-a-days, many different types of styles are purposefully mixed to create a look; then choose by color. What would look great overhead? Would a light colored, airy chandelier or a darker, more Mediterranean type chandelier work? What finishes are the room’s doorknobs, picture frames, window sills and light switches in? Perhaps you’ll want to choose a similar chandelier finish.

How does one properly size a foyer chandelier? The rule of thumb is to accommodate between 2.5 and 3 inches of chandelier height for every foot of ceiling height. So for instance, a 10 foot ceiling would require a chandelier in the 25 – 30 height range. Once you have estimated the height range, add your room’s height and width together. If the room is 20 x 16, your room’s sum would be 36 ft total. Then the correct diameter of the room’s chandelier would be approximately 36 inches. So your chandelier could range between 25 – 30 H and 36 W and you’d be in a safe zone, size wise.

Dining Chandeliers

When choosing dining chandeliers, since family members or house guests will be noticeably closer to the light source, especially if the fixture is placed directly over the table; other considerations must come to mind. No guest wants to head-bang a light when they lean forward to get up from the table. A general rule of thumb is to make sure the fixture’s width should be narrower than the table by at least 1 foot. There are other choices to consider as well, such as up lighting and down lighting. Uplight chandeliers direct the light source upward toward a ceiling. Deflecting light upward in this way can allow for a softer and more dimly lit room aesthetic. Downlight chandeliers are often used in dining rooms, so as to create a greater light source directly upon one’s table-top meal.

Generally speaking, chandeliers should be well centered over the dining table. A creative exception would be to hang two smaller chandeliers side by side over the table, in lieu of one large one. Overall, all light fixtures should hang approximately 30-34 inches above a dining table. Keep in mind that no chandelier, no matter what room it hangs in, should hang less than 7 feet from the ground. This is to allow clearance for even the tallest of human guests. Knowing a few pointers such as a few finish and measurement tips mentioned above can turn a chandelier shopping experience into a really fun one – because all the confusion’s been cleared away!

Why shop at www.elitefixtures.com?

Shopping on the internet is a multi-billion dollar industry with a sophisticated highway of automated processes that occur between overseas product shops,  US manufacturers, factory warehouses, super-sized e-sellers such as Amazon and smaller sized retail e-commerce stores.  The industry is constantly changing and streamlining processes, which makes it extremely hard for consumers to understand exactly where their product is actually coming from once they’ve ordered it. Anyone who has received an incorrect or broken product from any of these super-sized e-stores has experienced the frustration of either not remembering their order number when they need to produce it, not remembering the store they ordered from, or worse yet; they learn that the store they ordered from is not even the actual seller. Getting a return, exchange or replacement item can become an automated e-mail nightmare; as most of the e-conglomerates force shoppers to use strictly an automated process to get product resolution.

Just what is Factory direct pricing?

Let’s view EliteFixtures vs. competitors to see just what the differences are, and how consumers can get a little smarter about their shopping choices before they make an online purchase. Knowing where and whom to shop from can make a huge difference in terms of customer satisfaction – especially when it comes to needing additional assistance with a purchase. Let’s look at DirectBuy vs. EliteFixtures, for example:

According to Consumer Reports, “With DirectBuy, it will cost you a lot to save”.  This trusted reporting agency points out the fine print of the DirectBuy contract, which states “you cannot return items, cancel orders, or terminate your membership.”  Consumer Reports further states that, “Tacked onto the cost of merchandise—which you select from catalogs since DirectBuy has limited showrooms—are a 6 percent handling fee, shipping fees, and tax. Goods are typically shipped only to your local center, so you might pay additional fees to actually get your new stuff home.” At EliteFixtures.com, our return policies couldn’t be any clearer with absolutely no fine print!  Click here to see our returns policy.

Why would you join DirectBuy when you can get wholesale prices direct at EliteFixtures.com?

Compared to many big name retailers, EliteFixtures does not charge a restocking fee.  Let’s look at an e-commerce giant like Amazon.com as another example.  Consumers love shopping on Amazon for sheer convenience but most customers don’t realize that Amazon charges restocking fees for returned items!  On non-media items, Amazon can charge anywhere from 20-50% in restocking fees!  Compare that to EliteFixtures 0% restocking fees and it becomes a no-brainer! In addition, when you buy from an authorized dealer, you are protected by the warranty whether it’s a 1, 2 3, 5 or lifetime warranty!  EliteFixtures.com is the authorized dealer of every single top brand manufacturer that it represents. When you shop at Amazon or other marketplaces, you have sellers that are not always authorized dealers and should you have an issue with your item down the road, your warranty will not be honored!

Lastly, where can you go these days and NOT have to punch through several automated phone options in order to get live help? Most people know the agony of waiting on hold forever for a real-live human agent. At EliteFixtures, you can phone or chat in and immediately a specialized team is there waiting to help you with your order! Sometimes….smaller is better. Remember David and Goliath.  Sometimes BIG conglomerate e-stores are NOT all they’re cracked up to be. Shop safe and with confidence at www.EliteFixtures.com….always!
