Bedrooms come in many different shapes and sizes. Just because you have a small bedroom doesn’t mean that you can’t have a ceiling fan installed. The Hardware House Arcadia 30-inch Flush Mount Ceiling Fan is the perfect option for a bedroom under 100 square feet in size. It’s priced right so that it can be a ceiling fan for a child’s room or it can be a nice addition to a smaller master bedroom as well.
With its 6-blade design, there is plenty of air movement that comes from this 30-inch fan. Here are some of the key features to take a look at with this ceiling fan from Hardware House.
- There is a 3-speed pull chain control that allows you to customize your air movement experience. The motor is also reversible so you can be more comfortable in your bedroom all year long.
- A cap is included with this ceiling fan, so you can choose to install it with the light kit or have it go without if you need the extra space.
- The base of the ceiling fan has a distinct candelabra shape, which complements most bedroom styles.
There are 4 different finishes that are available with this specific model. For the purpose of this review, we took a look at the white ceiling fan with bleached oak ceiling fan blades. Black, bronze, and satin nickel finishes are available with this bedroom ceiling fan as well.
Observations of the Hardware House Arcadia
We really appreciated the lightweight design of this smaller ceiling fan. It only weighs a little over 10 pounds, which makes it very easy to install on most electrical boxes.
The light kit does extend a little further down than some might like. If you’re using this in a child’s bedroom and there are bunk beds in a smaller room, you might impact the blades or the light fixture, despite the 30-inch size.
The fan itself is very quiet. You can hear the air movement and there is a bit of a hum as the motor starts up, but otherwise you won’t notice this fan operating. Even in an 80-square-foot bedroom, there is no issue with sleeping. There is a slightly louder hum on the lowest setting that might disturb light sleepers.
The fan is a basic model, so there isn’t separate wiring for a dimmer switch or a remote control for the fan. Installation is fairly simple, though we did need to strip the wires on the model we received and clean out one of the screw holes for mounting one of the blades so it would fit properly.
Good small ceiling fans are difficult to find. The Hardware House Arcadia 30-inch Flush Mount Ceiling Fan does an excellent job for its size and performed consistently for us. We found it to offer an excellent experience and would encourage everyone to give it a closer look to see if it could meet their needs.
