I was at the hardware store while an electrician worked in my kitchen. I saw the fan, thought about 5 minutes and bought it. The electrician installed it before he went home. At $88 the fan wasn't a steal, but it had a remote, was pretty, and less expensive than other's of the same type. My mom came over to see it a few days later and declared it was the very fan that went on sale that day for $20 cheaper. How did she know that? I didn't believe it and looked it up online to prove her wrong. She was right. For a few minutes I had a pity party, then called up the store. I found out that with a receipt they would happily refund the difference, and they did!
It blends into the room a whole lot better and doesn't leave spots in your eyes if you accidentially look at it. Even though ceiling fans aren't my favorite look, it sure has come in handy as the spring temperatures heat up.
