Cool Off This Spring with Outdoor Fans!

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Wow! Spring weather sure came early this year! So what are you waiting for? Why not start the season out with a new outdoor ceiling fan. The weather throughout this past year has been rather unpredictable, as most of us are used to a cold snowy winter and a wet spring. This year, that has not been the case. With this past winter estimated to be one of the forth warmest on record, the 2012 spring and summer season are shaping up to be much warmer across the nation. Depending on where you live, you may already being feeling a lot of that summer heat or you may be steadily heading into it. So my question to you is this… Why wait until the weather becomes too much to bare? Beat the rush and buy your new outdoor ceiling fan now.

Outdoor fans are a great way to make sure that you and your loved ones stay cool during the spring and upcoming summer months. I can tell you from experience that outdoor ceiling fans have always made a great difference in my life. When I was younger, I worked at a resort in North Florida. Throughout those long summer months I slaved away in one of our outdoor cafes serving food to our guests. FINALLY, our management team decided it was about time to invest in outdoor ceiling fans. It was amazing! Both the service and business improved, as the servers were not fatigued from working in the heat and the guests found the outdoor cafe to be more of a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy with their families and friends. The outdoor ceiling fans that I can remember at the resort were very similar to the Minka Aire Gauguin. This fan comes in three different finishes and has a tropical style that can add a unique design element to your outdoor living space.

Besides making a huge difference at work, outdoor ceiling fans can also contribute to better relaxation at home. On a hot spring or summer day, it is great to be able to take a break from the fun and sun by the pool to go sit in shade with a new outdoor fan!  No matter the look and feel that you are trying to give your outdoor space, there are many different products to fit your needs. Fans such as the Minka Aire Rainman give off a very sleek marine feel, giving your outdoor space modern accents.

Outdoor ceiling fans like the Hunter Outdoor Original and the Fanimation Edgewood are ideal for enclosed porches, covered patios, greenhouses and more. Both outdoor fans provide clean lines and a traditional look that can match well with any outdoor living space.

Outdoor ceiling fans practically maximize your homes space. For the spring and summer months, they allow you to have even more options for places to enjoy with your family and friends. Why look at the heat as a restriction on your enjoyment and relaxation? Buy an outdoor fan and start cooling off in style this spring.

Friday, December 10th, 2010

If you are looking for a quick and easy way to update the look of your home start with your old, outdated ceiling fans. Most older ceiling fans have a more traditional style with not a lot of character to them and were meant only for comfort not style. Now days ceiling fan designs have gone from drab to fab, thanks to contemporary ceiling fans. Contemporary ceiling fans have sleek, stylish designs that allow you to still get the cooling comfort of a fan without skimping on style. And if you’re like me and live in a place where it is hot and humid for the majority of the year then ceiling fans are a must in your home.

Modern Fan Company Ball Ceiling FanIn the past couple of years ceiling fan designs and finishes have evolved becoming trendier, leading to more interior designers and decorators incorporating them into their designs. Most of the time when I see a fan in a room designed by an interior designer or decorator or featured in a magazine it is usually a contemporary ceiling fan.

A lot of the contemporary ceiling fans I see in magazine articles and blogs are usually by The Modern Fan Company, which is one of the original sources for contemporary ceiling fans. They celebrate the modern style by using geometric designs and contemporary finishes. One of the more popular fans by The Modern Fan Company is the Ball Ceiling Fan (as shown on the left). The Modern Fan Company Ball ceiling fan has a simplistic yet stylish design that is certain to modernize the look of any room. This fan is also available in a low profile design for rooms with low ceilings.

Remember the not so stylish, old school 3 to 4 light fixture that was commonly used with traditional ceiling fans. Well say good-bye to that eye sore with these fans.
