Installing the Most Beautiful Ceiling Fan | Haiku Copper Luxe Ceiling Fan | Pretty Handy Girl

I’m super excited to share you How to Install the Most Beautiful Ceiling Fan I Ever Laid Eyes Upon! You remember last month when I gave my stepmom’s screen porch a drab to fab makeover, right? Well, I didn’t really complete the makeover. I strategically cropped this ugly ceiling fan out of the shots:

That ceiling fan isn’t just ugly. . .it’s truly F-U-G-L-Y! And we won’t even talk about the layer of black goopy dust on top of the motor and blades. Just thinking about it brings up the bile in my throat.

My stepmom and I knew we wanted to ditch the existing ceiling fan, but I wanted to replace it with an attractive ceiling fan. (I know, that seems like an oxymoron.) And then it happened, I saw a photo on Instagram that made my heart skip a beat. Our Fifth House posted a photo of her Haiku H Series Fan on her screen porch.

That’s when I knew I had to install a Haiku Ceiling Fan on my stepmom’s screen porch. I approached Haiku Home (owned by Big Ass Solutions) about working with me on the screen porch makeover. They graciously agreed to supply the fan if I would supply the words and photos in this post. NOT ONLY THAT, they offered to give one of my readers a Haiku L Series Fan as well (read to the end of this post to enter.) Deal! Now that you know the back story, I present to you the Most Beautiful Ceiling Fan I Ever Laid Eyes Upon:

Isn’t that the most gorgeous ceiling fan you’ve ever seen? The motor is tiny and hidden by the beautiful brushed copper air foils. This fan is shiny, sleek, and modern. Best of all, it works great!

My stepmom had one switch that controlled her ceiling fan before. The switch was inside the house, not even remotely close to the door she uses for the porch (stupid!) We solved that issue by requesting a remote control for the Haiku Luxe Series Fan. Now she can sit on the screen porch and control the ceiling fan without walking through the house to turn it on.

Materials:

Instructions:

Shut off the circuit to your ceiling fan. (Turn on the fan, then shut the circuit off and check that the fan doesn’t have power.)

Begin by removing the fan blades from the old ceiling fan.

Remove the canopy covering the wiring. (All ceiling fans are different, look for screws or rotate the canopy to remove.)

Installing the Most Beautiful Ceiling Fan | Haiku Copper Luxe Ceiling Fan | Pretty Handy Girl

Use the voltage tester to check for power. The green light means it’s safe. Red light (and/or an audible alarm) means the power is still on.

Disconnect the wires starting with the black “hot” wires. Then disconnect the white “neutral” wires and finally the bare “ground” wires.

Have a friend support the fan as you remove it from the mounting bracket.

Time to prepare the Haiku Luxe Series Fan for installation. Be sure to follow the installation instructions included with your fan.

Remove the shipping screws and shipping cap.

Attach the safety cable to a secured hook or stud in the ceiling (our junction box had a hook bolted to the ceiling joist which was a perfect anchor point.)

Wire the ceiling fan by attaching the wires in this order: 1. Green/yellow to bare “ground” 2. Blue to white “neutral” 3. Red to black “hot”.

The Haiku Luxe Series fan is truly a thing of beauty. My stepmom and I love how it looks.

It is definitely a show stopper. Especially if you remember the old fan that was there.

Big coppery bling improvement!

I think this fan needs to be in an art museum. . . but that’s just my opinion.

Disclosure: Big Ass Solutions sent me the Haiku Home Luxe Fan for this project. I was not paid to use the product. I was not told what to write about their product. I approached Big Ass Solutions about working with me because I know they make quality products. As usual, I’m vary particular about the brands I mention on the blog. 

 

Pin for later!

    When we reno’d the house about five or six years ago we got three new ceiling fans and all of them look like your before and honestly those were the best I could find at the time. I’m so mad that now there are truly beautiful fans out there, and this is certainly one of them! I’d love to swap out one of my seriously ugly ones for something gorgeous like this!

    I’d probably go with brushed aluminum throughout the house. A nice subtle touch to be seen, but not too loud.

    I just found out about these fans when investigating other “Works with Nest” products and fell. in. love. If I could afford it, I’d put them in every room of the house!

    I love the look of the satin aluminum fans, still in the Luxe series. The fact that it’s shown in a smaller size caught my eye! We’re looking (well, I am) for a smaller, stylish fan for the laundry – kitchen area

    Wow, such a beautiful fan. I’m redoing my bedroom and I can’t sleep without a fan so this would be awesome . I would like the 52″ low profile cocoa bamboo with the black motor. That color would be perfect with my decor. Thanks for the chance to win!

    I love the Haiku Luxe Series fan in copper and also the brushed nickel finish. The copper would look fantastic in my living room. It is the only room in the house that doesn’t have brushed nickel fixtures… I could branch out into a whole new look!

    The funny thing is that the one in the living room died this summer and I have been dithering about what kind to get. Now I think I’m in love.

    Even if I don’t win, I really like the look and the tutorial makes me think I could do the job myself.

    Thanks,

    So hard to choose, but I’d have to say my all around favorite is the H Series with the Cocoa Bamboo Fan Finish and Oil-Rubbed Bronze hardware. Such a beautiful fan!

    I’m a fan of the Artisan collection “Natural Expansion.” I actually really like the look of Whale Bones, but it wouldn’t work with the rest of the home decor.

    Oh Yeah – this truly is the finest ceiling fan I’ve ever seen! Can’t choose between the copper and the bamboo but the copper would look great inside my house and the bamboo outside.
    I agree with you – this baby should be on display at a museum of modern technology!

    Love, love, love the bamboo H series. Am closing on a new home in December and this would be perfect in my upstairs sitting/dressing/escaping room. The fan that is currently there is missing a blade. How does that happen?

    For those prices I could pay someone to fan me by hand as well as be good company. $2,000.00+? Really. Some people have more money than brains.

      Roger, the L and H series fans are less expensive. They truly are beautiful and also really move the air. But, I understand your hesitation to spend that much on a ceiling fan. Still, I don’t think that necessitates your comment insulting people.

    This is a beautiful ceiling fan. Although most ceiling fans are ugly, I love them. I have one in every room and use them 24 hours a day. I would love this ceiling fan. It’s so sleek and I would love to win one.

    WOW! These fans are so stunning and very easy to install as well, you made it look so easy to do. Of course I’m always last to signup but I had to try, even though I probably won’t win. I would love the H Series 52″ Low Profile Cocoa Bamboo with the Black Motor, or H Series Caramel Bamboo. I love the fact it comes with a Remote control cause I am short and it’s always a hassle to change settings by hand. Thanks for the Opportunity To Enter?

    I think it’s a great fan design, and it looks really nice in the room you installed it in. But I think it would look a little too modern in my older-style home. But thank you very much for sharing, and giving inspiration. it looks like the hard work you put in to change the fan was well worth it!
