Ceiling Fans

Brushed nickel ceiling fans can modernize your space

The installation of ceiling fans is one of the simplest and smartest home upgrades you can make to improve the look and comfort of a room.

Visually, a ceiling tends to be a focal point that draws the eye, whether it is on or not, so you want the statement that the ceiling fan makes to be a lasting and positive one that reflects your style and the design of the room. The ornate beauty of Monte Carlo ceiling fans is perfect to dress up a room, while the classic look of Hunter ceiling fans leaves an impression of understated taste.

Things to Consider When Shopping for Ceiling Fans

While the look of the fan is certainly important, you want to make sure you choose a ceiling fan that is appropriate for:

  • The size of the room. It's essential that the size and power of your fan is appropriate for the size of the room in which you want it to work. Too big, and the fan might create unwanted drafts; too small, and it won't effectively circulate the air or cool the room.
  • The primary purpose of the fan. What do you intend the main function of the fan to be? You may love a certain style of Hampton Bay ceiling fans, but the best model to provide a little light breeze and white noise over your bed while you're sleeping is probably not the same as the best one to supplement air conditioning in your living room.
  • The required lighting. The majority of ceiling fans are designed with a light fixture of some kind at the hub, so decide whether you want a ceiling fan with a lighting option, and, if so, how your room can be ideally illuminated.

Fan Finish: Brushed Nickel Ceiling Fans and More

For metal ceiling-fan blades, you will find there are many attractive finishes to choose from. Brushed nickel is a popular choice because it adds a touch of class without putting a huge dent in your wallet.

Of course, you don't have to choose metal blades at all for your ceiling fan; there are many other choices of material. Even bamboo can be used to make lightweight yet durable ceiling fan blades.
