I'm remodeling two rooms in our house, and combining them into one large kitchen/dining room. I ran a 30" deep x 14" high soffit around the perimeter of the room, one for accepting my upper cabinets, and two for giving the appearance of a trey ceiling. As I said, the soffit is 14" high, but I will be framing in another soffit off of that which will be a 7" deep x 7" high step. This will give the appearance of a double step. Large crown molding will be run around the perimeter of both of these soffits. The high ceiling size, when finished, will be roughly 12'-0" wide x roughly 20'-0" in length. I'm planning on using six recessed 6" can lights, spaced evenly for both the width and length of the ceiling, meaning the lights will be placed around 4'-0" in from the width on both long sides, and 5'-0" centers running the length of the long sides. ( : : : )
My question is this. I have two new ceiling fans, without light kits, that I would like to place in the center of each four light grouping
( : + : + : ). Do you guys think this will look right? How would you wire them up, meaning, would you wire both ceiling fans to one switch, or would you wire them individually? (one switch to each fan) Keep in mind, the recessed can lights will all be operated from one switch, and one ceiling fan will be located in the kitchen area of the room, and the other fan will be located in the dining room area of the room. I'm also going to install a tin ceiling looking material to the high ceiling. I'm just not sure if it's going to look too busy, or if it will look fine. Our house was built in 1889, and has a lot of old wooden charm throughout. It was supposedly a ritzy house back in it's day, and I'd kind of like to keep the elegant and sophisticated beauty that it deserves.
I hope I don't have you all confused as to what I'm trying to ask.
