A New Spin on Your Decor: Ceiling Fan Style

Look up! Does your ceiling fan make you cringe — or make you smile?  What does your ceiling fan say about your personal style? Of course, it’s not all about looks. Your ideal fan choice will also be energy efficient and perfectly scaled to both size of the room and the specific ceiling height.   Yet there is no reason that this “function” can’t also have a beautiful form. Here are the three most common design styles and the ceiling fans that compliment them. Which best describes your family’s décor? Casual:  Casual rooms – mainly screened in porches and outdoor patios – can be so much fun to decorate. The possibilities are endless: this is your opportunity to play with lots of bright color, soft warm tones or a mixture of both. Take a look at the indoor patio shown below. Designed with a clean look in mind, we’ve incorporated white wood panels and cross panels, which also add texture and depth to the ceiling.  And a new for 2012 Hampton Bay Havana ceiling fan adds the finishing touch with its tropical blade design and natural iron finish. The room feels casual but the fan adds a layer of sophistication. The overall effect is very inviting.

Traditional:  If you prefer more traditional decor, there are even more Hampton Bay ceiling fan options available. Whether you prefer traditional decor with a country flair or more formal decor, both can offer a full range of warm colors, textures and comforting furniture designs.

For instance, this formal room is simple and peaceful. It is organized well and there is plenty of sitting space. The Hampton Bay Winthrop fan is the focal point and matches both the coffee table and end tables. Contemporary:  Modern love. The contrasting bronze and white wood look great together in this contemporary kitchen. Again, bringing in a simple ceiling fan (in this case the Hampton Bay Hawkins model) can add a dash of décor to any room. All for under $100.
