Choosing the right fan for your home
19 November 2015
More than just functional, today’s ceiling fans are a must-have design accessory, adding a sense of relaxed luxury to any room. No matter what style your interior, there’s a ceiling fan design to suit.
So which one is right for you?
Firstly, it’s important to choose the right fan for your room size.
If your room measures 4x5m or 20sqm, you need 122 cm blades. If your room measures 6x6m or 20sqm-36sqm, you’ll need blades of 132cm and above.
Next, consider where the fan will be installed.
For kitchen or living areas: A metal blade fan such as our Typhoon circulates more air than a timber-bladed fan, which is perfect for common areas such as the lounge or kitchen.
For bedrooms or studies: A timber blade fan is quieter than its metal counterparts. Our Airfusion Type A blends brushed chrome and teak blades.
For coastal areas: Choose an outdoor fan that won’t warp such as our new Airfusion Marine in stainless steel.
For alfresco areas: Keep cool while you’re entertaining outdoors with our Airfusion range, specially designed for outdoor undercover areas.
And remember, if your fan is going to replace the room’s main light source, choose a fan with an integrated light such as our Altitude ECO with an energy saving LED light.
