Re: Wall switches for ceiling fans

I'm adding wiring for a ceiling fan. I will probably pick a ceiling fan without a light (since the room has recessed lighting already). The setup I've seen in some homes is 1 wall switch for the power to the fan and 1 remote (holstered right next to switch) to control fan light and speed. I don't particularly like that and wanted to see what others prefer.

I think in the past I also had one prewired where there were 2 wall switches for the ceiling fan (1 for the fan light and 1 for the fan spinning or not).

I didn't like the remote on the wall also. We did the recessed lighting and the fans at the same time so just ended up putting the switch for the lights and the fan in a 2-gang box in all the bedrooms. The remote sits in the nightstand. It's useful having it next to the bed so that you can turn off the fan at night if you need to without getting up, first world problems :). Although if you decide you want the fan on after you have laid down then you need to get up and flick the switch on.
