FAN ZONE: Getting a Beautiful, Designer Look is a Breeze

When it comes to ceiling fans, you may not usually think of beautiful design and high-end artistic styling. Yet, many of the newest ceiling fans from ALA-member manufacturers are not your everyday fans. They feature sleek lines, modern finishes, natural materials and rich colors. Today's fans are so beautiful, you may forget you are saving money and energy while enjoying the experience of having a work of art in your home.

See the newest ceiling fans and lighting products at your nearby ALA-member showroom.

EXPERT ADVICE: Want More Ideas? Ask a Lighting Professional. 

Does it matter how many blades a ceiling fan has?    - Ann W.

No, it is more important for a ceiling fan to be the right size for your space. Rooms that are 150 square feet or larger require a 52-inch diameter fan to be most effective. Smaller rooms can use either a 42-inch or 48-inch diameter model. Larger great rooms may require bigger fans with up to a 72-inch span.

While most ceiling fans have five blades, that is more of an aesthetic consideration rather than a practical one. A fan with fewer blades actually moves more air. Fans located high in a space, such as in a warehouse or home with extremely high ceilings, will typically be three-blade, industrial-grade fans.
