Consider the Style of your Decor

Whether you have traditional, contemporary, colonial, rustic, or minimalistic, choose the fan that best suits your style. We have customised fans for each need of yours.

Identify the Dominant Colour of Furniture
Identify the dominant colour of the wood and choose the fan blades colour matching it. For example, if you have upholstered furniture of a cherry-stained oak moulding fireplace, or cheery tinted wooden floors, choose the fan blades with a cherry finish. Or, if you have a hardwood floor, complement the fan colour with the floor colour.

Interior with more Metal Hardware

If you have metal hardware all around the interior, choose the fan having a metallic finish. If the elements like your desk, door knobs, door handles, and drawer knobs are brass coated, then choose the fan with the brass finish.
