Decorative ceiling fan blade covers. What could be an easier way to update a dated and tired ceiling fan. Instead of buying a complete new ceiling fan you can simply slip on or clip on one of these ceiling fan covers. The fan blades pictured to the right are palm leaf ceiling fan blades which come in a set of 5.
What I love about these fan blades is they can be fitted without any tools, great if you are a bit technically challenged when it comes to home improvement.
Another great advantage of these blades is they are very easy to keep clean and maintain, this is because they are made of a resin material that can be wiped clean with a cloth.
Also, another great advantage to choosing these ceiling blade covers are that they come in a great range of colors that will fit in the with the color theme of your room.
These fan blades are available in the following colors…
