Colour size and style made it a perfect fit for our master bedroom. It is silent and effective. A good valued purchase.

Nice modern looking ceiling fan. Very good for low ceilings.
By:Ken , Homeowner (Cupertino)
The Concept Ii ceiling fan really does snug up close to the ceiling, so that, even in a standard 8' high room, there isn't the slightest sense that it's hanging too low or that it might be a good idea to duck when walking under it. The variable speeds work just fine, as does the remote. I ordered two of these fans, and hung them differently -- one with the light installed and one without -- because the two rooms in question were lit differently. They both look "just right."

The final element added to a renovated great room/ kitchen. Searched for months for the perfect fan that would accent the room. Found Minka that makes excellent products plus this product has a contemporary design with a retro look and it works perfect. The remote control is an added bonus .
Thank you YLighting for having a great selection of products. At great prices too.

I bought this fan for my bedroom. It was simple to install (I had an electrician install it as I dont know how). It took him less than 30 minutes to install.
It is pretty quiet, nice looking
It functions well and looks nice
By:Farzana B. , Homeowner (Chicago)
We love the look, the sound (there is little), easy to install and the silver blades look black at night, which think is cool. Its design eliminates the wobble that some fans have and the style works in a retro 1940's kitchen.
By:Nadine P. (Martinez, California)
This is a great fan, modern, quiet, and reasonably priced.
By:christine , Homeowner (austin, texas)
The ceiling fan has a wonderful design allowing for maximum air flow without impacting aesthetic of the room. Remote is easy to operate and not overly large.
By:C.M. , Homeowner (Washington, D.C.)
This fan is great! It is quiet and good looking, no more light bullets dangling from the bottom of the fan. The integrated light is so much nicer.
By:WSG , Homeowner (Kitty Hawk, NC)
I highly recommend this fan. I unpacked and installed it in less than 15 minutes. This is the second Concept II fan I have bought, they both work great. Very quiet, very little vibration noise. The remote has a reverse button, which is much easier than the Pharos by Modern Fan I have in my living room that requires you remove the light cover to get to the reverse switch. The remotes work very well you don't even have to point them at the fan.
Its very easy to install, the blades just snap into place, it only has two bolts for the mounting plate and four smaller ones to mount the fan to the plate. There is plenty of room for the remote module on top of the unit, unlike many other fans where it is such a tight fit.
Y-Lighting's service is outstanding, it was shipped very next day, received in less than a week. Other online lighting stores often have 2-3 week lead times, which they do not tell you when you are placing the order.

Modern looking fan in a small apt. Scale, look, finish, everythings perfect! Also, easy installation!
By:Ossie G. , Homeowner (West New York, NJ)
Well engineered hugger fan with clean simple lines. At high speed fan is quiet compared to most other fans. Extremely easy to install.
By:Frank B. , Architect (Colorado)
Overall this is a nice fan. Very quiet, very little vibration noise, good functionality due to the wall mount switch with an integrated reverse button.
Unfortunately the light output is not sufficient for a 100W mini halogen lamp which I believe is equivalent to 150W of standard incandescent lighting.
The trouble lies in the design. Due to a very shallow light bowl and the thick milk glass shade most of the light gets lost inside the housing. Slight modifications should get rid of this problem.
I have it in a 11'x12' room with 8' ceiling and on its brightest setting it is not possible to read with this light.
By:Max , Homeowner (Los Angeles, CA)
I have two of these now. They sit close to the ceiling and move a lot of air. Very quiet operation.
By:Mike O. , Homeowner (Virginia)
The fan is quite nice looking and seems to work very well. We like the fact that it's contemporary but also fits in with some of the more traditional elements of our brownstone. I like the fact that it came with two different pole length options as the ceilings in the bedroom that it's in are rather low. We're very happy with it!
By:Marie N. , Homeowner (Brooklyn, NY, USA)
The fan is extremely handsome----it's simple, elegant design, and quiet operation allow it to complement any decor. I love the reverse feature because it takes the air from opened windows and wafts it gently around the room, cooling without blowing down on the table. my guests are only aware of the freshness of the atmosphere, and I can use candles without the worry of flickering or extinguishing. It's perfect !
By:Gloria E. , Homeowner (Los Angeles, Ca.)
The fan itself makes an architectural statement and looks best with the light cap on. It is extremely quiet and efficiently cools the room. I love it. I was surprised that the blades were plastic and was somewhat concerned the material would make the fan look cheap when installed. I was wrong. We like the fan enough to want to purchase another.
By:Diana , Homeowner (Haddonfield, NJ, USA)
This fan is sturdy and attractive but we had wanted to use it in a small den with low ceilings. Although it is described as a fan for a lower ceiling, its bulk and width make it too large for a small room.
By:Stephanie , Homeowner (Sag Harbor, NY)
I purchased two Concept II fans for my downstairs (converted basement) with ceiling height of just under eight feet, so I was very interested in low profile fans. The Concept II seemed to fit that bill, and it mostly does. I find it a sleek looking fan and it definitely fits the space, but i have at least two criticisms, one of which I hadn't seen reported before: 1) the light is a 100W halogen (on a dimmer) which doesn't put out much light (fortunately, I don't like large overhead lighting, so this is not a big deal, just an observation); and more importantly 2) the "flushmount" isn't exactly that. upon installation, you will find a gap between the top of the fan and the ceiling of about 1/4 inch.
By:Jeremy C. , Homeowner
great ceiling fan / light, particularly for lower ceilings such as we have here in older parts of Miami. they help hugely in keeping down the ac usage and have good form and function (particularly for the dollar value), dependable (2 units going on 4 years now) and just installing a third.
By:shawn , Homeowner (miami)
I liked the first two fans so much, that I bought two more. Marvelous product - clean lines, quiet motors.
By:V. Sarofeen (Virginia)
By:Julie , Homeowner
Installation took 15 minutes compared to 3 hours to reinstall a Hunter Fan in a different room. The white ceiling hugger with halogen lighting succeeded in adding a dramatic touch as much as when I changed the wall paint color.
By:eveknn , Homeowner (Ohio)
Nice fan, very quiet. The light is way too dim and is not very usable for any kind of room.
By:Michelle , Homeowner (Evergreen, CO)
We bought this light for a small bedroom. It is perfect - top quality. We are very happy with this purchase.
By:ETR , Homeowner (Portland, ME)
We purchased the fan to replace the current one in our kitchen. It was well worth the price. The fan creates great circulation compared to the old one. It is quite on high speed with no wobbling (like cheaper fans do). Some people complain that the light is too dim, but that is not a problem for us. It's was relatively easy to install, but much heavier than the old fan. This is our second Minka Aire fan. I wouldn't buy any other brand now!
By:Christopher L. , Homeowner (Illinois)
Proof you get what you pay for! From installation to performance, truly a perfect fan!
By:Tim B , Homeowner (VA)
Very nicely designed with a short wingspan which is perfect for our small dining room. I love the light and modern look. Runs quietly as well. Great buy!
By:Roxana K. J. , Homeowner (Santa Monica, CA, USA)
This fan has an incredibly quiet motor and a modern, sophisticated look. I bought the oil-rubbed bronze with taupe blades. The taupe blades are considerably lighter than the base. Combined with the fact that they are plastic, they look a little odd. A darker color for the blades would have been more attractive, in my opinion. I noticed some other lighting companies offer additional options for a "dark walnut" or a "dark maple" - not sure why these aren't available on y lighting.
Overall, it's a quality fan, but not quite as attractive as it looks in the photo (at least the oil-rubbed bronze one).
By:Seema S. , Homeowner (brooklyn, ny)
This is the most elegant, functional fan I have ever seen, the remote control works wonders and you can even code the remote to a different setting if you have more of the same fans in your home so that when you turn one fan on, the other fans in other rooms do not go on at the same time following the wrong remote's command. I would give this product five stars but I gave it four because I would have loved it more if it included an energy efficiency bulb instead of the 100 Watts or something like that that it includes. I am a vegetarian environmentalist who is trying to save our earth for our children and energy efficiency lighting is one of my top priorities... I am going to be looking for bulb replacements for these fans, I hope they do make them! Other than that, the fans are TOP OF THE LINE!
By:Margarita V. , Homeowner (Rego Park, NY, USA)
Purchased this fan to replace a worn out one which operated from a fan/light wall switch. Had hoped to bypass the remote control but discovered that it was required to change fan rotation. Now the wall switch must be on to operate the remote control. Apparently I should have purchased the wall switch with the fan. Wish I had known that the fan did not have an exterior switch to change the rotation. On the plus side, it was very easy to hang the fan housing and installing and removing the blades is a snap!
By:Oak K. , Homeowner (Baltimore, MD)
This fan is perfect for small rooms or low ceilings. It's very quiet, does not wobble in the least bit, and is probably as flush or close to the ceiling as you will find in a fan. YLighting had the best price too!
By:Edward H. , Homeowner (Columbus, OH)
We are senior citizens so we had our fan professionlly installed...the comment from the installer said it was the easiest fan he ever enstalled and was very impressed. We are very happy with the fan. We got the oiled bronze/taupe blades and are pleased with the choice, the design and size and color is a perfect fit for our den. It's so quiet it, being able to adjust the brightness of the lighting is a huge plus . We have every entention of replacing our other older fans but I would have to agree with some other reviews that they should in the future offer a more variety of color choices(eg. gold/oak, oiled bronze/walnut ..etc.) they would see a real increase in the sales of this great product.
By:Marla K. , Homeowner (Chebanse, IL)
By:Chun Y. (Lorton, VA)
I currently have 2 (1 Brushed Nickel, 1 Oiled Bronze). I have had these for about 3+ years and they still work great. I will be getting a new (white) one for yet another room. With 8 foot ceilings there are not as many choices out there as you would hope. This hugger fan gives great performance while still giving plenty of over-head room. The finishes of hte 2 fans I have already are very nice. The Minka-Aire multi-function switch makes the fan all the easier to use.
I was originally looking for a Casa Blanca fan but I could not find one that would work for the room that I needed it for. I had never heard of Minka-Aire previously but now that I have, when ever I need to look for a fan (or lighting), I always put Minkas near (or at) the top of my list.
By:V B , Homeowner (Fishkill, NY)
We bought the fan in white. It's a great looking fan, quiet easy to install, I recommend it! But, alas, don't count on it as your only source of light in the room. But it provides enough light for me to find the other light to turn on! All in all though, I'd recommend it. Especially for those rooms with a lot of natural light already.
By:Rebecca J. , Homeowner (Alexandria VA)
This fan is worth the price. It's 100% silent, perfect construction, and incredibly sleek. Your home doesn't have to be ultra modern for this to fit your decor either. If you're looking for something sleek to blend into your room but still provide the functionality of a ceiling fan this is it. Plus, if you're sick of the silly chain hanging from your old fan, this is perfect with the remote control operation and dimmer. Very easy to install as well!
By:Erin E. , Homeowner (Indianapolis)
Fan is nice design, but once installed does not sit flush with ceiling. Installing electrician states this is his second install of this fixture that does not snug up properly to ceiling. Recommend adding a clear rubber grommet or reworking the canopy design to correct.
The fan was defective (but Ylighting agreed to replace without question). Also, the fan does not generate as much light as I would have anticipated and the light cover gets very hot. I think fan is nice looking, but it is really insufficient to light a room.
By:G G , Homeowner (Potomac)
When I opened the box I could tell this fan was well engineered. When you buy a cheap fan there are like a millions pieces, a ton of instructions and a whole lot of swearing waiting for you. Not this fan! I understand the comments about it not sitting perfectly flush against the ceiling. How close the fan sits to the ceiling is dependant upon how much the ceiling fan box is recessed from the drywall or plaster. The fan blades are also solid injected molded plastic. The color runs through the whole piece. They are also curved like helicopter blades. On high the fan will practically lift the roof off the house.
By:Old House , Homeowner (Chicago)
Fantastic! beautiful, quiet and the easiest installation I've ever experienced. Literally installed in 15 minutes.
By:Jeffrey D. , Homeowner (Chicago, IL, USA)
Finding a ceiling fan for a small room with a standard 8' ceiling is not easy. I was looking for a fan that was quiet, low profile with clean lines, with a remote only (no wall switch) for a price that didn't break the bank! After looking at various local stores I resorted to shopping on-line. I was thrilled to find this fan at YLighting! It arrived quickly and my contractor was very impressed with the ease of installation and I was thrilled with the look and ease of use. It also has an optional light that's dimmable!
By:Sheri , Homeowner (Benicia, CA)
I'm using the Concept flush ceiling fan in my master bedroom. The light is bright enough to provide for reading and to allow me to dress in the morning. The fan ventilates the room. Quiet enough to let me fall asleep to a cool breeze it's almost like sleeping on an island without the bugs!
By:Michael G. , Homeowner (Washington, DC, USA)
The fan is awesome! Having the remote made it really easy to install -- just a few wires at the ceiling and it's done!
By:Wine Lvr , Homeowner (Washington, DC)
Highly stylish,and low priced. This fan does the job both efficiently,and economically. One of the Best fans on the market today.
By:Joe C. , Designer (new jersey)
Great fan -- I love it. Would like to buy more for other rooms in my house, but it's a tad on the expensive side.
By:Diane F. , Homeowner (Atlanta, GA)
Light is perfect, moves air well. Additionally, it is nice to have the option of a light or no light.
By:Katie B. , Homeowner (Vancouver, wa)
I needed a small fan. I bought this fan for its size and quiet operation. But once it was installed it did not look like in the picture. It is very compact but somewhat disproportional and it looks flimsy. This fan does not mount flush to the ceiling. Our old fan fitted snugly and looked much better. The mounting bracket is designed to leave at least 1/2" space between the ceiling and the fan casing, exposing the screws and causing possible unbalanced rotation. If you have a low ceiling this gap is very noticeable. The manufacturer does not provide additional ring to cover this exposure as it is the case with some other brands. I would not buy this fan again because of its flimsy and cheap look.
By:MZR , Homeowner (Brookline, MA)
This fan looks good, is very quiet, and provides decent lighting. Highly recommend it.
By:Jack S. , Homeowner (Green Mountain Falls, CO)
I like the look of this fan more than I thought I would. I thought the blades weren't long enough to produce much circulation but it's very powerful and more importantly very quiet. It was a little heavy during installation but it was very straightforward and was running in no time flat. Very happy with this purchase.
By:Robert G. , Homeowner (boston, ma)
I have purchased at least 5 ceiling fans from Y Lighting and I am yet again a satisfied customer. I love the Concept II fans, and Y Lighting always delivers exactly as promised and at a competitive price.
By:Patty T , Homeowner (CT)
The fan looks great in our great room. The minimalist design does not take away from the room which we wanted. I wish the light was brighter. This would be perfect for lighting in a bedroom.
By:Jillian , Homeowner (Orange County)
Very nice fan, functional, easy installation.
By:Francis T. , Designer (Manhattan NY)
Look great and easy to install
By:Jim , Homeowner (Ohio)
I love this fan. We just installed it in our office, but we are thinking about getting another one for the babies' room because we like it so much. The remote is great and saved us a lot of hassle on the installation. We received the fan within a week of ordering and we were really excited. Great service!
By:Diane H. , Homeowner (Boise, ID)
I spend quite some time looking for a cool fan with a flashmount. This one provides modern look with a very affordeble price. We got it after reading rewievs and researching different websites.
Fan looks great and is very quiet. It comes with or without the light as an option, and I like that it looks exactly the same either way. It was easy to install. It replaced an old very basic fan and it really made a difference in the room.
By:Karolina , Homeowner (Ct)
This fan has a minimal profile and is great for houses with lower ceilings. It blends well with modern and traditional applications. I bought one white fan then two more- a bronze and another white for my kids rooms!
By:Colleen W. , Designer (Baton Rouge, LA)
The concept fan is fantastic form and function completely satisfied. Great price and service
By:Lewis F. , Homeowner (miami)
Good fan for low ceilings. The remote is great - mounts on the wall and can be used there or detached. The housing is a bit plump - but there's nothing slimmer for the cost. Maybe some day...
By:Chris V. , Architect (MA)
We bought it first for our bedroom. Then for a family room. Now two more for the kids rooms. We have an older house without high ceilings, so this worked perfectly. Plenty of airflow, very quiet, and not an eyesore. We had an electrician install, as i wouldn't begin to try, but he said it went up easily, no problem.
By:G.H. , Homeowner (pa)
The headline says it all -- the product looks great and because it uses remote controls to run the lighting and fan, the install was very easy.
By:Paul S. , Homeowner (Washington, DC)
I bought 2 of these fans, one for each of my guest bedrooms. They look great and were amazingly simple to install. They are almost silent, yet work like a charm. I highly recommend this fan.
By:Joanne S. , Homeowner (Virginia)
I love this fan because it doesn't try to hard to be retro or modern. It blends well into the environment without drawing too much attention to itself. When you do look at it, it's a thoughtful design, however. Works fine. Shipping super fast.
By:Lakeland , Homeowner (Westchester County NY)
This is our second concept II fan. We love the low profile and sleek look. We have low ceilings so low profile was a necessity. Fan gives great cooling effect in the hot weather.
By:Regina , Homeowner (New york)
The design of this fan is very modern looking. Just what we were looking for.
By:Kris R. , Homeowner (48094)
I had the Concept II in my old house, and when I moved I purchased them for every room in my new house. They're quiet, efficient, and easy to operate. I love the low-profile, sleek design...
The only thing I would change would be to make the light dimmer a straight up and down instead of it cycling from dim to bright and then dim again, but that's such a small thing it doesn't even count.
By:K , Homeowner (USA)
I love this ceiling fan. Anyone who has low ceilings will love it. Very easy to install and doesn't wobble. I love the light with the dimmer option. I have two in the same room. Also a great value. Ylighting customer service is great to work with.
By:Lori S. , Homeowner (Waterford, New York)
I love the design of this fan. It's sleek and somewhat nautical looking. They are great quality (this is our 4th one). I like that they are different from the ordinary.
By:Sabrina M. , Homeowner (West Hartford)
I've been an electrical contractor 25years and I've seen alot of fans. This fan is by far the easiest we have ever installed. The engineer who designed it must have been a electrician first. There is plenty of room for wires at the top, fan blades were a breeze to install, well balanced and priced.
By:Creative E. , Designer (California)
This ceiling fan looks and performs great. It is cleanly detailed with nice smooth lines. I installed it in a small bedroom 10'x10' with the short blades and it fits perfectly. It is well balanced and near silent even when on high. The light is bright enough for the room (but maybe not for a large room). The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because you have to use the remote to turn the light on separately from the fan. It's a small thing but not the most convenient.
By:Eric J. , Designer (Minnesota)
It is hard to find a ceiling light that is attractive and fits with contemporary decor. This one is sleek and stylish (we ordered the brushed nickle finish) and our contractor said it was very easy to install. We haven't used it yet other than to test it, but it seems to provide good air movement.
By:Vanessa , Homeowner (Palo Alto, CA)
I already owned this model in Bronze and loved it so much we ordered it in white. we feel it is a great deal for the money. really well made.
By:Monica S. , Homeowner (Kansas)
This is a very simple and elegant ceiling fan. It has no noise and is lovely.
By:Jane M. , Homeowner (Washington D.C.)
These are terrific looking fans. We bought one for each of the bedrooms -- two in nickel and two in bronze. They all look fantastic. So excited!
By:Rachel , Homeowner
Modern fan but not too flashy, can be install close to the ceiling. Works efficient and quaet
By:Aleksey P. , Homeowner (NYC)
Quiet , efficient, modern looking but not too flashy, goes with ant decorum.
This fan is in my son's room. we needed a smaller blade and something simple and this fits the bill. Here is my only issue with these MINKA fans (we've bought two): the light bulb gives off a very unflattering overhead sheen and it's also a pain to change the bulb. my husband accidentally cracked the glass of the cover of one of our fans. We've decided to use the overhead only in rare instances, but the fan itself is quite attractive.
By:Judy C. , Homeowner (los angeles, CA, US)
By:Cigal T. , Architect (ny)
Been looking for a fan for my guest bedroom for about a year. This one is modern looking with nice clean lines. Moves alot of air for my 12 by 12 guestroom. Really quiet. Easy install.
By:Tristan S. , Homeowner (South Jordan, UT)
We purchased this fan for my infant daughter's room and it is perfect. It is nearly silent, so we can turn it on/off and adjust the speed without waling her. It emits a soft light, which us fine for her small room. You'd need additional lighting in a normal-sized room. It was very easy to install. A great product. We'll defiinitely buy from that manufacturer again.
By:Al C. , Homeowner (Washington, DC)
Let me preface by stating that I hate the designs of most ceiling fans. They are either dated and gaudy, or "way out there" modern. This piece is simple and timeless, not to mention affordable. We were afraid to use the screws that it came with because the unit is very heavy. But our electrician friend gave us a kit that was a little bit more substantial. Overall, works and looks fabulous!
By:Mimie , Homeowner (Belmar, NJ)
The flush concept II fan is a wonderful fan. We love it. We already purchase another one for the guest room and pretty soon we're going to purchase another one for our master bedroom. Thank you so much.
By:Frances S. , Homeowner (Newbury Park)
We wanted a combo light fan and it delivers. It's bigger than the Modern Fan Company Fan we also purchased, but works just as well. Beware of the LED light in the companion wall controller, however.
By:J.S. , Homeowner (New York)
Nice design, fully functional
By:Cenon , Homeowner (LA, CA, USA)
nice for smaller room -- 44" fan. quiet fan.
I love my new fans. I plan to order two more next month. I would recommend them to anyone who likes modern dessign.
By:Eleanor C. , Homeowner (Oxnard California )
We wanted a low profile 3-bladed ceiling fan. The Concept II was exactly perfect. It was easy to install, it's quiet and looks great. The remote is an excellent feature, in our situation the the wall switches are in another room, so they stay on and we control light and fan via the remote.
By:Steven H. , Homeowner (Maine)
I needed 2 smaller fans, which would be close to the ceiling and which don't overwhelm the room.
Concept II is perfect. MinkAire is a great brand and YLighting is wonderful to do business with.
By:Chris , Homeowner (Santa Fe NM)
This fan is perfect in small spaces! We bought two, one for each kid's small bedroom. Our 2 yr old daughter loves it! Its incredibly quiet so she sleeps peacefully and cools the small space nicely! Very happy!
By:Emily G. , Homeowner (Brooklyn, NY)
Wonderful in our large bedroom. Looks beautiful and keeps the room cool.
By:A.E. , Homeowner (Worcester, MA)
The low profile and finish variety made the Concept II a wonderful option for our bedrooms. The styling fits well in our 8 yr olds room (in brushed aluminum) as well as in the in-law suite (in bronze). Installation was a breeze and the remote is great to have. I would recommend the Concept II to anyone looking for a minimalist low profile option with a lot of style.
By:Marcus W. , Homeowner (Silver Spring, Md)
I had this fan professionally installed. As soon as he saw it he said I was going to like it - he has the same fan that he uses for ventilation in a small kitchen. It was installed in less than an hour including replacing out a dimmer switch with a regular light switch & mounting the remote on the wall. The other reviewers are correct about the low light output - it reminds me of having the dimmer switch turned done on the previous fan. But unlike a previous reviewer's experience it mounted flush to the ceiling - no gap. The air circulation is good and it's completly quiet. My apartment was built in the 1940's and has dark wood trim & floors - this fan blends in great!
By:Lisa , Renter (Mpls)
Compact, clean look, quiet. Everything I was looking for in a fan. Very happy with my purchase.
I love this ceiling fan. I have two: one in my living room and one in my daughter's room. It is sleek and smooth. The light is nicely incorporated into the design of the fan. I can't wait to buy another one!
By:Noho , Homeowner (Western Massachusetts)
I purchased 2 for our smaller bedrooms. the flush design makes them unobtrusive and functional for smaller rooms. My daughter loves hers.
