Porch ceiling fan - how to do nice install?


I'm getting our porch summer-time ready. Want to put up some ceiling fans this year. I have exposed framing with T&G sheathing - indoor applications I would use a heavy-duty adjustable ceiling fan mount. But I think that will look a tad ghetto on my white on white painted ceiling.

Also, I'll run the wiring through wire mould (yuck, but, better than nothing). I'm going to have to punch a hole through a 18 thick brick wall for the project. Guess I'm renting a tool for that one.

Thoughts about doing a really nice looking install?

We usually sleeve NM in emt or LFNC. Not much of a way to make it look very nice with open framing. Once painted it doesn't look too bad.
