Fans with Brushed Nickel Finishes Popular Since the 1880's
Since the 1880’s, brushed nickel has been a popular finish choice for many fixtures. To attain the look of brushed nickel, manufacturers chafe the nickel surface with an abrasive tool that creates fine lines on the metal. The result is a bright finish that is less shiny than chrome or steel, but just as stylish. The muted finish is resistant to fingerprints or smudges as well as corrosion and tarnish, which is ideal for long-lasting fixtures like ceiling fans.
Brushed nickel fans evoke the look of chrome, steel or pewter, which allows them to blend easily with existing appliances. They come in a range of styles, from traditional to contemporary, and create a distinctive look indoors and outdoors. In addition, ceiling fans with a reverse option help homeowners save on energy costs by providing year-round comfort that allow users to rely less on cooling and heating devices.
The Many Uses of Brushed Nickel Fans
Brushed nickel ceiling fans are versatile for decorating and ventilating a home. Contemporary ceiling fans are often the go-to choice to complement a modern living space. However, lighting kits and blade sets allow for various looks that are suitable for multiple home designs and uses.
Brushed nickel hugger fans, also known as low profile or flush mount ceiling fans, are ideal for spaces where the ceiling height is less than the recommended eight feet. These fans are installed directly onto the ceiling for a compact, but stylish look. The Minka Aire Concept in a brushed nickel finish embodies this stylish look.
Traditional fans feature a classic silhouette with ornate flourishes and satin-like finishes. Traditional brushed nickel finish fans add a polished look to a traditional or transitional design, and are appropriate for the kitchen, bedroom or living room.
Outdoor brushed nickel finish fans add a modern touch to exterior living areas like porches or patios. Outdoor ceiling fans with a brushed nickel finish are UL-rated for damp or wet environments to ensure the performance and look of the fan.
Brushed nickel ceiling fans effortlessly mirror the look of other metals like stainless steel, chrome or pewter at a more economical cost. They coordinate with a range of designs and blend easily to any existing décor. Consider choosing nickel light fixtures for a look that ties together a living space.
