All You Need ARE FANS

54" Valby Ceiling Fan by Casablanca
In our lighting showrooms, we are thrilled to see ceiling fans become more than just functional appliances. Done right, today’s fans can be an important design element in a home and have an additional benefit of energy conservation year round. (see previous article on Using a Ceiling Fan Year Round)

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.

Irving Flores, Residential Lighting in our Arlington lighting showroom picked out a few of his current favorite fan styles and what he is selecting for customers today.

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