Turn Your Home into a Five-Star Resort with Tropical Fans
Whether your home is located in a tropical area or not, tropical ceiling fans lend a warm, exotic touch to any residence. Tropical fans, like conventional ceiling fans, rotate bamboo or paddle blades to circulate air in order to create a gentle and cooling breeze. These fans provide cooling comfort and are suitable for indoor or outdoor rooms, including hot tubs and saunas. However, homeowners purchasing outdoor tropical ceiling fans should confirm the fans are UL-rated for damp or wet environments to ensure the longevity of the fan.
Tropical fans offer many of the same features as traditional ceiling fans including lighting and remote control options. Tropical ceiling fans with lights create a calming breeze while providing functional task or mood lighting. These fans are ideal for bedrooms, casual dining areas or meditation spaces. Tropical ceiling fans with remote control allow residents to adjust the fan’s lighting as well as speed, blade direction, and power. These remote control fans are ideal for hard to reach areas with inclined ceilings.
A Tropical Room in 5 Easy Steps
After a long day at work or school, many homeowners and residents look forward to unwinding at home, but relaxing amidst the distractions of the computer, telephone or television can be difficult. Here are a few tips to turning any room or space in your home into your personal retreat with the use of tropical ceiling fans.
Colors - Choose neutral wall colors like off-white, taupe, and tan that evoke the idea of sand. Use bold accent colors like coral and turquoise on throw pillows, rugs, and curtains.
Furniture - Select furniture made from natural materials like bamboo, rattan or wicker. Look for color-washed pieces for a more authentic look and feel.
Fabric - Curtains, pillows, cushions, and furniture coverings should be made from organic fabrics like linen or cotton, which feel more comfortable against the skin.
Decorations - Select decorations inspired by nature like shells, smooth stones and fossils. In addition, use flowers and plans, like orchids and bamboo, as natural ornaments.
Ventilation - No tropical getaway is complete without a gentle, ocean breeze. If you cannot get to the ocean, at the very least let the breeze come to you with a tropical fan.
