Want to stir things up around the house this summer? Add a ceiling fan.

It’s true stirring up the air will make you feel immediately cooler. But ceiling fans do more than just bring about breezes. Designed with the latest home decor trends in mind,Add a Ceiling Fan this Summer Articles these overhead fans move in fashionable circles.

‘Fans today are design pieces as well as functional appliances,’ says Martin Shepherd, national sales manager for Minka Aire, a ceiling fan manufacturer based in Corona, CA.

Kevin Grimes agrees. ‘Customers are interested in using fans as design elements,’ says the marketing services manager for Casablanca Fan Company, a Pomona, CA.-based fan manufacturer.

High-tech, contemporary designs have become popular in the last few years. As a result, brushed nickel, steel, and sleek pewter finishes get thumbs-up approval from trendsetters. Earth tones like rustic copper and bronze are also hot-sellers. Ditto painted finishes and washes.

‘People are more inquisitive than ever about ceiling fan possibilities,’ says Troy Lee, general merchandising manager for Progressive Lighting, Inc., a retailer in Kennesaw, GA. ‘People want something attractive on their ceiling and they are concerned about matching the fan’s design to their decor.’

Ceiling fans work well in any home, thanks to a variety of design options. Ornate filigree blade holders offer a graceful, turn-of-the-century ambience. Brushed steel housing and light-colored maple blades offer the ultimate in contemporary styling. Classic polished brass finishes work well in more traditional homes.

Fan design isn’t the only thing that’s expanded. Places to put ceiling fans have also increased. These fans bring a breeze to almost any home space, inside or out — from kitchens, bathrooms and dining areas to porches, patios and gazebos.

‘We are seeing more fans being used on patios than ever before,’ says Kathy Held, manager, buyer and vice president of South Dade Lighting, a 10,000 sq. ft. lighting showroom in Miami, FL. ‘People are using their porches and patios as extra rooms. They spend money on landscaping and landscape lighting, then add the fans so they can sit out and enjoy it all.’

With more than 14 million ceiling fans sold annually, most do double-duty, lighting a room as well as moving air. ‘Our research indicates that a majority of ceiling fans are sold with a light fixture because consumers are usually replacing a light in their room,’ says Mark Jeffrey, marketing manager for Emerson Electric Company Air Comfort Products Division, a St. Louis, MO., manufacturer.
