You may find yourself in a region where crisp fall temperatures arrived, and hot, humid conditions departed. That is when you want to shut down your air-conditioning, open the windows and turn your modern ceiling fans on high. Nothing beats the feeling of early fall, fresh autumnal breezes circulating through one’s home.
Due to earlier ugly versions, the ceiling fan received a bad rap. However, some of the more modern versions may change your mind about ceiling fans. Take the Cirrus, which is a simple, yet modern variation. Regardless whether your home has high or low ceilings, and needs light or not, this may be the fan for you.
Someone close to you may be in the process of renovating their newly bought home. As it is an old style house, the bedrooms have sconces with no overhead light. What would you consider a good suggestion? Ceiling fans with no light and recessed lights, or a ceiling fan with light.
What Do the Professionals Say?
Install an everyday modern ceiling fan and make use of lamps for lighting in your bedrooms. The quality of light from fan light kits is not that great or all that attractive.is
If you would rather have a ceiling fan installed, we recommend you install recessed lights with just a plain ceiling fan that has no light. However, the optimal design would be a beautiful pendant towards the center of the room with some table lamps. Should you be renovating, you may want to consider other options.
Fans that are equipped with a light tend to lower the height of your lovely ceiling visually, only to draw your eyes to that illuminated glass bowl which provides very little light and undoubtedly poor quality light at that. Furthermore, It doesn’t enhance the lovely features of your furniture beneath it. One cannot read using this light, or even clean the room properly using the light.
As you take a look around your office, an idea would be to make use of various types of table lamps to illuminate the room at both high and low levels. Your room can do with a small lamp on the sideboard, and one in the corner to illuminate any plants and probably another table light for your lounge chair.
Your existing lamp may provide better lighting with linen instead of opaque paper shade to direct the light up and down. Many folks add more and more objects to their rooms to make things interesting, but the room most likely only requires better quality lighting.
What if you have art, how best can you illuminate the picture? Have you tried can lights & wall washer lights in your ceiling to illuminate your artwork? Should you wash a wall using a few lights, then the entire wall itself becomes the room illumination.
If you absolutely must have a fan, then some professionals who specialize in modern ceiling fans with led lights suggest you use a fan without a light in a family room. If you add recessed lights then only use these where they will complement walls for art purposes.
Floor lamps and table lamps are better task lights and would add more warmth and intimacy to any room. Wall sconces also add architectural interest to walls and help spread the light around the room. Be sure to add dimmers to all your light fixtures so you may control the light. The only time light on a fan is recommended when bedroom has no recessed lights.
Ceiling fans, coupled with recessed lights prove to be a bad combination in the same room if not appropriately designed. You have to ensure the fan blades is far away from the recessed light illuminance cone or you will create a psychedelic effect.
We guess it would depend on your definition of quality. If you are looking for efficiency and functionality, then, by all means, settle for an LED kit. It may just help to reframe your vision of what a ceiling fan should like as they are primarily thermal comfort appliances and should be viewed as such.
A modern ceiling fan that comes equipped with an integrated, dimmable LED light source is the best way to go. Some brands you may want to consider are Modern Fan, Kichler, Matthews, and Atlas fans.
