Stylish Fans - Taking a look at the trends this Summer

When the mercury starts to rise and the temps reach the 30’s, there’s no denying that we need to do something to beat the heat. Ceiling fans have long left design folk divided but they’ve come a long way from the basic white models that lack style or flair. It was once a matter of style versus circulation. But times have changed. No longer reserved for air circulation, ceiling fans have become a statement piece in the home. From modern to coastal cool, we take a look at some of the trends emerging in the world of ceiling fans.

Black Vs White

While white has long reigned supreme in the world of ceiling fans, recently we’ve seen an influx of black styles added to the market. Brushed matte-black blades and bases add an edge to the home that white never could.

But that’s not to say that white models have been made redundant. Quite the contrary. They’ve been given a modern makeover by way of unique designs. Whichever shade you choose, keep your cool all summer long with the help of one of our experts.

Coastal Cool

From palm leaf blades to all-over timber designs, bring the beach to your home by installing a unique ceiling fan in your living room. If statement blades are not your style, keep the coast vibes strong by adding a ceiling fan with a bamboo base or timber blades. Accentuate against a palette of white, neutrals and blues to really up the Hamptons look.

Modern Metals

To make a statement that is equal parts luxe and cool, try adding a ceiling fan of the metal variety. From brushed chrome to stainless steel and antique brass, a metal fan is the seasons answer to rose gold homewares. To really add a touch of luxe to your home, offset an antique brass ceiling fan with décor pieces in a different metal. The mixed metal trend is here to stay.
