The warm weather gets people thinking about ceiling fans. They are perfect for creating a breeze on those still nights and provide a charming ambient noise that is perfect for falling asleep to. There are factors to consider before you pick your ceiling fan.
Where You Are Putting The Fan
The space you have will influence your choice in blade size, fan type and fan material. If your room is on the narrower side, you might want to pick shorter blades to balance the decor. You might want longer blades in bigger rooms to make them more cozy and maximize airflow. Additionally, if you already have your room’s decorations in place, you will want to pick a fan that complements what you put together.
There are ceiling fans that have short stems and don’t hang down. You might consider these if you are putting it in a room with a low ceiling or if you think something discreet would better fit your decorating style.
The room you are contemplating could be outside. Ceiling fans are a great addition to verandas and gazebos, but some types of fans are better suited to the outdoors than others. They endure weather better and complement outdoor furniture well.
What You Want The Fan To Do
Yes, you want to cool your space, and ceiling fans do that. They do other things as well. They make rooms with really high ceilings feel more human-sized. They increase air flow so that you can have a refreshing breeze wherever you are. They give a space a classy look. So what do you want your fan to do?
The best fans for producing a breeze hang 10 to 12 inches from the ceiling and have a powerful motor. You can ask a ceiling fan expert about the ideal blade length for cooling your place. You can ask them about Hugger fans, too. Hugger fans are designed to give great airflow while staying close to the ceiling, however.
The number of blades don’t matter, but they can make a real fashion statement if you pick some striking-looking ones. You can make your ceiling both a practical boon and a focal point of your interior design with ceiling fans.
