Today, another happy ending to report — and by golly — we love those. Doesn’t that shiny chrome exhaust fan cover look amazing next to Shawn’s starburst towel hooks? He ordered a NOS Emerson Pryne chrome exhaust fan grille cover for his bathroom from our secret source — House of Fans — matched up to a new Nutone 8310 exhaust fan. With a little help making a custom part from a local lamp shop and a stock chrome finial cap, Shawn’s bathroom is now business.
So glad you posted about the NOS chrome grille covers from House of Fans! Just finishing up the details of my bathroom renovation, and this cover is awesome. So shiny that I almost feel like I have a chromed out car. Lol
I used this with the Nutone 8310 fan. It comes with a threaded rod that’s only 2″ but I needed a 2.5″ one to fit the taller grille cover. My local lamp parts shop cut a 1/4-27 threaded rod to 2.5″ for me which also fit basic finial cap in chrome.
Oh, and round 11.5″ filter from eBay for $7!
We’ve heard from lots of readers who have successfully combined new fans and these NOS grille covers over the last few years since our story broke — and that just gives us a case of the warm fuzzies.
