The summer season is officially in full swing! As temperatures continue to rise, it is increasingly important to employ methods to keep yourself and your living space cool.
Enter: the trusty ceiling fan. Ceiling fans are fantastic for circulating air in your home. Fans keep your space cool and comfortable; no stagnant air in the abode! They have a place throughout your house as well: fans can be functional for the living room, bedrooms, and even the kitchen, to name a few locations.

When selecting a ceiling fan for your home, consider the size of the room you are installing it in. Think about purchasing a fan that relates to the space in size. A ceiling fan that is too small for your room will not circulate the air well, and one that is too large has the potential to swallow up your room visually. Balance is important!
Thankfully, there are so many style options nowadays when it comes to ceiling fans. A fan can serve the function of cooling your home while also complementing your furnishings. Is your decor Mediterranean or tropical in style? You can opt for a ceiling fan with palm blades if so. If your style happens to be modern and clean, selecting a fan with brushed aluminum blades would be a chic option.

A fan can also serve the function of lighting your room. Adding a light kit to your ceiling fan can do the trick. You can pick up a fan remote to control the speed of your fan blades as well as the brightness of the bulbs. Setting the proper mood in your room is only a few button clicks away. Lights on a ceiling fan can add some serious style as well. Here are a few options to consider:
