Ceiling fan blade span

Hello all,
I came across this thread earlier: Changing a 52 inch fan blade to 42 inches

I am curious about the results. Long story short, I have a Honeywell Bonterra 52" ceiling fan, 50690-01, in my living room, and we want one to match in the kitchen. Maximum blade span for kitchen is 44", and I cannot find anything that resembles this particular fan anywhere, be it fans, or add on light kits.

I would like to purchase another, and shorten the blades. I am unsure if it will cause any balancing issues, or possibly motor issues.

Anyone have any advice?

Welcome to the forums.

I would not recommend shortening the blades. It can be pretty tricky to get them to balance.
Why can't you use the 52" in the kitchen ?

The area where the current fan is mounted is too narrow. Kitchen is long and narrow, with crappy air flow.
