A ceiling fan is a fairly large ceiling-mounted fan which can rotate clockwise or anticlockwise. In one direction the fan blows air downward, while in the other it draws air upwards. Some fans come equipped with a light fixture to double as a central light. The fan is a hardwired fixtures so has to be installed electrically. Typically it is used with a wall switch or remote control. Ceiling fans can help keep you cool in summer and also warmer in winter by circulating the air.
Our Loft-Industrial Lighting Style is heavy on the unrefined aesthetic elements inspired by the industrial revolution and turn-of-the-century warehouse lighting fixtures. These bold and strong designs are dominated with heavy metal or rustic wood construction, and are certain to ignite an urban renewal through use of rivets, chain links, steampunk-inspired light bulbs, metal ribbon strips or wrought iron trimmings.
A ceiling fan needs enough headroom, so is ideal over some furniture such as a couch, seating area or bed. See hugger fans for maximizing headroom. Fans are most often used in living rooms, family rooms and bedrooms, where people might be dwelling for a longer period of time.
A fan is best positioned either centrally in the room or above a main seating or sleeping area. If the fan has a light it can help to light the room. We recommend adding either wall lights or some lamps to fill out the space.
Attaches to a ceiling. The ceiling should be flat, unless the fan supports sloped/vaulted ceilings. A small canopy will conceal the electrical installation.
An electrician or person with electrical installation knowledge will need to permanently wire the ceiling fan into the building's electrical supply.
