Ceiling fan designs come in many varieties. Unlike the usual desk and stand fans with generic looks, they would have followed the same fate had they not gone out of their “limiting” comfort zones. The absence of this generic cover, which has become their limiting factor, has given them freedom to explore and stretch the design margins through their blades. A small room can be equipped with an equally small ceiling fan with shorter blades that could also be less in number. A massive sitting area may require a grandiose pattern of five blades with a little flair in their design and a dash of color.
And just as modernization would have it, uneven blade architecture in brushed nickel ceiling fans has been manufactured by brands such as Minka, Hampton Bay and Fantasia. Their edge in contemporary design has enabled them to be their customers’ ultimate delight with blades looking like bubble splats and a panoramic solar system effect with the blades moving around like planets. Fantasia’s Splash design is just plain adorable. It looks very funky and cool – literally and metaphorically speaking. Minka Aire’s Cirque model exudes the futuristic effect with round silver blades that look like scale models of the galaxy when not in use. The integrated halogen light provides for not just a functional light but additional design points.
The desire for something with a twist is ever evolving in consumers that have a particular penchant for design. A customary ceiling fan look would just satisfy the element of function. Although this is indeed its primary purpose, most people have gone exploring and always want their belongings to look good, stylish and one of a kind. And if uniqueness can be stretched to the extremes, a lot of people would perhaps have things in their house that cannot be found in any other abode.
A brushed nickel ceiling fan in pure, matte silver undertones would fit well in a dwelling with a warehouse or industrial theme. A bachelor’s pad with such a crude look plus home equipment in the design mentioned would complement each other superbly. Other designs with differently colored blades can be situated in living or bed rooms, which warrant such designs. The brushed nickel just has that futuristic edge due to their color and brush painted effect. So with something that scores well and covers both aspects of form and function, plus budget friendly and a cool source of air without consuming too much electricity, the only thing missing might be another buyer.
