Ceiling fans are often placed in large houses or apartments as decorative and functional parts of the device. They can be decorative when processed with elegant materials such as wood or other local materials.
Some are big industrial ceiling fans that can be used in factories. They are usually placed indoors to cool a living room, den or bedroom.
You can also install outdoor ceiling fans to cool a patio. These appliances can come in various colors from black to cream or white.
When purchasing a ceiling fan for your home, consider the general design theme on the room as well as the color theme that dominates the space. You can make your ceiling fan match with the rest of your decor concept whether it is modern or traditional.
Plain white or cream fans can look a bit boring and lack character. If you want some pizzazz to a basic appliance such as a fan, you can install something fancier such as a sleek black, silver or copper fan for modern houses or fans made of thin wood or other native materials like bamboo, abaca or palm. Pick the type of fan that also goes with your furniture.
If you have rattan or wicker furniture, a native ceiling fan might look more appropriate. If you are decorating a minimalist or modern house or business establishment, choose sleek modern varieties in trendy colors that math the colors of your furnishings and other decorations.
