“It’s So Fabulous!” HOME IMPROVEMENT TIP of the Week: As I was pursuing the blogs of several of my fellow design lovers, I ran across this interesting post from Ask Decor.  (Click the link to go to that original post.) The contraption is a ventilation fan that turns on automatically, which seems like a rather clever idea to me!

Ugly looking drip marks can stain your bathroom ceiling when moisture gets trapped.  This is especially common in kids’ bathrooms.

Broan has introduced a product that looks like a recessed light but has a fan that turns on automatically based on how much humidity is in the air.  It turns off based on a user adjusted timer.

Looking at the picture here, only the white trim kit and light would show.  The metal sections would be hidden by your ceiling.

Pretty great to think automation could eliminate all those ceiling problems, not to mention the cost of repainting and repair.


What do you think? Do you own one of these? How well does it work? Leave a comment to share your insights with other readers!
