Fifine Rousseau Ceiling Fans January 23, 2019 07:15:56
Decor - Installing a ceiling fan can change the decor of any room, large or small. Palm-leaf fans can make your outdoor space or patio look more like the tropics, while a rustic, bronze fan can accent your traditional style living room or bedroom. Whatever the decor, there is a fan made for it. A fan is a wonderful complement that can really bring any room together.
The height of your ceiling does make a difference - Just like all ceiling fans are not alike, all rooms are not the same, either. The closer your fan is to the ceiling, the less air it is going to pull. If you have low ceilings, of course, you are going to need a flush mount, meaning you will need to mount your fan close to the ceiling, otherwise it would be hanging down too low and pose a hazard. But, if you have high ceilings, you will want to install a down rod.
Ball and socket mounting: This is a type of mounting where a ball-shaped apparatus is attached to a downrod, with the fan body and blades hanging from the ball. This makes it possible for the fan to move easier than it would with other methods of mounting.
Ceiling fans come in all styles, everything from antique to tropical to modern. They come in all colors, ranging from gold to white, silver, red, green, whatever color suits your style. They also come in all kinds of materials, like brass, bronze, and even chrome. When choosing a ceiling fan for you, remember, a good fan not only matches the decor of your room, it can anchor it and bring it all together.
There are times when the weather just isn’t quite hot enough to merit turning on the expensive air-conditioning, but you still need a little air movement in your home to make it feel more comfortable. That’s when a ceiling fan is perfect. If you don’t have air conditioning at all, then you’ll be even more appreciative of a quiet, unobtrusive way of cooling off. Although the interior designers on home improvement shows tend to scoff at having ceiling fans, they are a practical and comforting addition to any room.
Mounting: The first step with a new ceiling fan is mounting, which simply refers to the attachment of your ceiling fan to the surface of a ceiling. To make it easier it is a good idea to become familiar with a few terms and options when choosing the right ceiling fan for you. This will ensure that your fan will hang properly and as low as you would like it to. Mounting also effects the operation of a ceiling fan in certain ways. Certain methods of mounting allow for the fan to more closely direct air to the people in a room and some methods allow for more flexibility in movement.
