Ceiling fans are an ideal solution to help you to cool down or warm up in any room, and they have certainly come a long way since they were first invented! These days there is a fabulous range of designs to choose from that will fit in with the style of your home.
Many ceiling fans are available with lighting. This can be a single globe bulb, spotlights, or even a cluster of bulbs with lampshades. When choosing the most suitable ceiling fan, it’s important to consider the lighting requirements, function and style of the room. A sleek metallic ceiling fan with spotlights may be appropriate for a modern kitchen, while an ornate ceiling fan with lampshades might be ideal for creating a relaxing atmosphere in the bedroom.
In general, the size of the fan required is very much dependant upon the size (including height) of the room. For high ceilings there is a great range of fans available with stunning lighting, long tapering blades and exquisite designs, which will fill high empty spaces.
Other features include multi-speed, and winter mode (reverse airflow). Controllers are wall mountable and often there is a hand-held remote control option available too! The ideal number of blades is 3 to 5 – they tend to be either rectangular or rounded. The range of colors available, in general, are metallic, white, black, natural wood, and mixed. Materials to choose from include wood, poly resin, and metal.
Ceiling fans come in a variety of prices that will suit various budgets. Cheap and plain ceiling fans can easily be transformed with a bit of creativity (and the help of a stencil kit) before hanging into position. This is an inexpensive way to brighten up a room – and add that personal touch!
