The article below is from NW Renovation’s latest issue, August/September 2009.
It’s a “How-To” article about installing a wall mounted fan, using a Laurelhurst Exhaust Fan. Thank you to Lou, and staff, for such a great job!
***I want to make sure and note that NW Renovation’s Website is new and improved!  They have done an excellent job at organizing an enormous amount of resources and information…Enjoy!

It all started with a phone call.  A client had an existing fan that they were happy with – but a fan cover they were not.
They purchased a brass grille to tie in with the brass feet on their clawfoot tub.
The only issue remaining was how to cover up the existing wiring and unfinished drywall that would still be visible through the brass grille.
Excited by the challenge, that is when we started offering custom faceplates, which can be plated or powder coated just like all of our other components.
(For a better visual, go to our Fanatomy101 diagram and scroll over “Housing Face”. )
The client measured the opening of their fan hole and we made a custom faceplate to their specified dimensions, which in this case was a square.

Pink Parkview

Pink bathrooms, pink kitchens…they  definitely have their place!  We have been pleasantly surprised by the attention this color is getting and wanted to give “her” a special post.

Custom Almond Parkview

As you can tell by recent photos, “The Parkview” is a real favorite!
The owner’s of this second fan are in the midst of a kitchen restoration and wanted the outside border to match their trimwork.  They sent us a color chip and we matched it to an Almond custom powder coating color.
This photo shows a new blade that will be coming out around the same time as the ceiling fans, in the fall.  The center circle and the blade are a brushed aluminum.  It’s really a beauty – clean and classic.  We will post photos of their kitchen remodel when they are done!

Some clients of ours kindly sent some photos of their all chromed Parkview Grille that they installed over an existing fan in their kitchen (there is another photo in the post below).

Their fan was sufficient enough – but their grille was not.  They found us and we were able to make a custom faceplate that fits right behind the grille they wanted, with the exact dimensions of their current fan opening.

If you have an existing fan or air duct that you would like to cover with a Laurelhurst Grille, custom faceplates allow you to hide  unsightly things like wiring or unfinished drywall.

This is another example of how YOU have helped us find answers for other peoples’ ventilation dilemmas!  We didn’t start out selling custom faceplates – but after talking to so many of you about your needs – we’re delighted that this solves many of them!  We will be posting more about custom faceplates very soon.

We have received an overwhelming amount of requests for a ceiling mounted exhaust fan, in addition to the through-wall fans we currently offer.
Connie, a fellow reader, made a comment that sounds very familiar: “I would love to see you have a bathroom fan for the ceiling. They are plenty ugly out there !! Thanks, Connie.”

…And so, we are thrilled to make this post and let you know that our ceiling mounted exhaust fans are set to be ready for you this fall!

If you are indeed looking to purchase a Laurelhurst Ceiling Model Exhaust Fan…and we do not have your information already…please visit our Website Home Page where you will find the “Reservation List” information, under “Fan News” in the left column.

If you have any questions – please always feel free to send us an e-mail or give us a phone call at 971-570-3131.

We look forward to creating the beautiful fans that will grace your ceilings.
Cheers,
Johnny and Nicole
