11 Ceiling Fans That Marry Form and Function
It’s very rare that one thinks about home decor and says to themselves: “Let’s start with the ceiling fan.” However, if you’ve ever chosen one for a room, you know that the right fan is a crucial component in the look (and literal feel) of a room. Aesthetics are important, but function is vital — so how do you marry the two? From the perfect bedroom ceiling fan to outdoor picks we love to options that’ll beautifully complement spaces both large and small, we rounded up 11 of the best modern ceiling fans out there that’ll help keep your space as cool as your style.
How to Clean Your Ceiling Fan
One thing to keep in mind about a ceiling fan is how important it is to clean it. With dust quickly collecting on the blades, you’ll want to keep that dust from flying about. We know that cleaning a ceiling fan can feel like an absolute chore, but a good trick is to use a pillowcase to “grab” the dust by placing the case over the blade, then removing it so the dust comes off inside the case as you wipe. After that, just shake out the dust outside and wash the case. Easy! Make sure to clean a ceiling fan before you clean your floors or your bedsheets, though; there will be falling dust and debris, so plan ahead.
