Del Mar Designs Retro Fan Review and Giveaway - 1 winner - US Only - Ends 5/26




We have actually been wanting to shop for a new ceiling fan for some time, because the fan in my grandma's room was the generic fan that came with our home - That type of fan usually has a short life, and well, it did. The fan in her room hasn't work for probably a good 5 years now.

I didn't receive a ceiling fan to review, but I did receive a small (amazing!) helping solution, and some insight as to where we might actually purchase a new ceiling fan for her.

I've actually been pestering grandma to get a new fan for her room for quite some time now, because, well, it's hot here in Florida! She's been putting it off for the longest time now, but I think I've actually got her to change her mind, finally!

A few days ago, I had received this amazing Minka Aire F300 Pink Retro Desk Fan:


And, since mother's day was coming up, I gave it to grandma. She used it during the night on her end table to help keep her cool, and even though the fan is just a smaller desktop fan, she said it did her wonders. Her exact words were "I haven't slept that good in years!"

This fan, even though smaller, definitely has a punch to it! I couldn't believe how cool it was, and how strong the wind flow was. I had really expected much less - So I was pleasantly surprised!

Here are some of the key features, and specific details of the fan:
  • 11" Blade Span
  • Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Approved for Indoor Locations
  • Switch Control Included
  • 14.5" Height, Top to Bottom
  • N/A Mount
  • No Light Included
My absolute favorite aspect was the retro look, and the unique color! I love retro products, and I think it just looks sweet, and it fit perfectly into grandmas room (It looked really pretty with her light blue walls in the background!)

Grandma knows that she can't use a desktop fan for the rest of her life, and now that she's seen the benefits of a cooler room, she is more ready than she's ever been! We actually spent several hours yesterday looking at different fans from Del Mar Designs, and she has several in mind, but is still exploring her options.

We loved Del Mar Designs so much, that we will hopefully be making a personal purchase fairly soon too!
So as you can probably guess, we loved Del Mar Designs, and I would highly recommend them!
