When selecting a ceiling fan, consider the fan size (bigger rooms need bigger fans), ceiling height (optimal fan placement would be either 8 or 9 feet from the floor), blades (angle for optimal circulation and balance), motor (for quiet operation), other requirements like lights, and location (does it need to be damp rated?) and the fun part - style.

“The trend towards two and three blades gives the fans a wonderful sculptural feel.”
