As a result I would like to add additional ceiling lighting in the room. I can't have the one wall switch controlling the new lighting *and* the fan because sometimes I would like to have the fan on, but no light. As a result, I will probably go back to having the wall switch control the lights, and make separate arrangements for the fan.
Now here is the problem - because this room has already been decorated, I don't want to run an extra cable to the light switch so that I can fit a double wall switch. So, what are the alternatives?
Initially I wondered whether I needed a separate switch for the fan as it has cords to turn the light/fan on and off. Even if this option were within regs, I can see that in an emergency I might want to be able to isolate the fan quickly without having to go near it! I could fit a pull switch for the fan on the ceiling, which would look slightly odd in a bedroom. Another option is to wire up an FCU for the fan high on the wall outside the bedroom door, which hasn't been decorated yet, so I don't mind disturbing the plaster.
So, what would you do? Are there any other options I haven't thought of?
