Installing a designer ceiling fan makes your space more comfortable and might help you save money on your energy bills. Aside from this functional use, fancy ceiling fans can offer design elements that match your decor and style. When decorating your home, choose ceiling fans that complement, rather than compete with, your other design aspects. With the market's large variety of colours, materials, and shapes, you're likely to find units that meet your requirements.
The size of a decorative ceiling fan influences both its performance and its appearance. Larger fans generate more air, which is important in a large area but might be excessive in a small space. A fan that is too tiny for the room will not effectively cool it. The size of the fan might also make the fixture appear out of proportion to the room.
1. Take a measuring tape and measure the room. To get the square footage, multiply its length by its breadth.
2. Request a sizing chart from the appliance store's floor salesperson or download one from a ceiling fan company's website. Use the sizing chart as a guide to determine what size blades you require. Most store displays and fan packaging include information on room sizes for each model, which might assist you in selecting the ideal fan.
3. Determine whether the room is large enough and the ceiling is high enough for a fan to be a useful decorative element. Even a well-placed fan may make a tiny room feel confining. Choose a simple, basic design in materials and colours that complement the ceiling, such as a white or brown ceiling fan based on the colour of the ceiling.
Existing Design Elements
The general style of the room, as well as the current furnishings, influence your fan decision. You may make your fan stand out or blend in with your existing decor. However, it must complement it rather than compete with it or make the room appear mismatched.
Consider your decorating style in the room: contemporary, traditional, minimalist, rustic, tropical, or something different. Buy a decorative ceiling fan with the same design. As an exception, if your decorating style is diverse, you may want to select a fan that contrasts with the room's most dominant style.
Determine the primary wood colour in the room and select fan blades in that colour. Choose cherry-finished blades if you have upholstered furniture with cherry-wood feet, oak moulding around the fireplace, and cherry-stained wooden floors, for example, because there is more of it in the space. If you don't have a lot of wood in the space, you might match the hardwood floor and the ceiling fan for a harmonised aesthetic.
Examine the metal hardware in the room and select a fan body with a finish that complements the prevailing material. Choose a fan body with a brass finish if the drawers on the desk have brass knobs and the doors have brass doorknobs.
Ceiling Fan Selection
You're ready to select a fan based on your existing room size and style. You can choose a ceiling fan with light or a conventional ceiling fan.
Narrow your search to fans in sizes that are appropriate for your environment. Choose from those appropriately sized fans to choose one that complements the style of your home.
If desired, choose a light fixture that complements the fan. Choose a fixture that has the same basic style and colours as the room to guarantee that it complements it.
Bring the fan home and hang it in the appropriate location. Return it and replace it with another alternative if anything about it does not appear or feel right to you. Experiment with different ceiling fans until you discover one that you like.
A designer ceiling fan can match the room while also being functional and adequate. Hugger fans are ideal for low-ceilinged rooms. Larger blade fans efficiently keep vast, open spaces cool. The Fan Studio Fan collection features the ideal fan for every space, size, and taste.
