Ceiling Fans-Diamonds in the Rough
Ceiling fans…Yes they can be hideous. Thankfully it doesn’t have to be. In Charleston-when the AC never seems to take a break in August-they were once a necessary evil. No longer! Take a look at some of these ceiling fan showstoppers:
For a traditional interior this Casablanca fan, (www.casablancafanco.com) in a bronze finish, is a low profile fixture with a cool ceiling medallion and integrated light.
The woven detail on this Casablanca indoor/outdoor fan has the perfect garden feel for a screened porch or sunroom.
For a transitional look Casa Vieja provide this straightforward clean lined look
And for those of us that love all things modern Minka Air (www.minkagroup.net) has this sleekly elegant design in brushed nickel with bird’s-eye maple blades. Divine!
Tips for selecting the right ceiling fan for your home:
-Keep it simple: clean lines, integrated light fixture
-Look for hand-held remote or wall operated controls to avoid the hanging pull chains
-Shun heavily themed ceiling fans. Let the furnishings and fabrics define a room style NOT the fan.
