Is there anything more elegant than the color black? With the availability of black ceiling fans, you can introduce this level of pizzazz now to your interior home décor with an unlikely appliance. Instead of choosing brushed nickel or chrome, a matte black ceiling fan with light kit can complement your interior décor, provide ambient lighting, and underscore the good looks of the home. Best of all, there are several options available to you. Black ceiling fans are available in a wide range of sizes and styles and from many high-quality brands.
How to Choose a Black Ceiling Fan for Your Home
A matte black indoor ceiling fan is a fantastic addition to your living room or home office. Black ceiling fans can be designed to be just as decorative and beautiful as a chandelier. When you favor deep reds or creamy ivories, this tone stands out in all the right ways. Choose a ceiling fan with coal, dark walnut or matte black finishes. A glossy black ceiling fan with remote control immediately imbues your space with a contemporary look and feel. Besides that, it makes operation of the appliance a snap. For an appliance that looks great with hunter green or even orange walls, choose a black ceiling fan.
Choose your ceiling fan based on the room size. Flush mount ceiling fans are better for smaller rooms or low ceilings. Fans with larger blade spans fit nicely in large rooms and great rooms. You can also put fans in an outdoor living room space because outdoor ceiling fans are wet-rated for those locations. Reversible blades are useful for optimal air movement year-round, moving the air more efficiently depending on the season. Find fans with wall controls, remote controls, or a good old-fashioned pull chain. Now there are even smart ceiling fans you can control with your smart phone.
Energy Efficient Black Ceiling Fans
When choosing the best ceiling fan for your home, consider energy efficient ceiling fan options. These include fans that are Energy Star rated because of the features they offer. Some utilize LED bulbs in the ceiling fan light kits which are more efficient and longer-lasting than other light bulbs. Dimmable light kits also help to lengthen the life of your light bulbs. Some fans run on energy efficient DC motors.
Enjoy Dark Wood Blades and Rustic Motors for Years
Black fans are available in a range of unique shapes and finishes, including matte black finish, to create strong design statements. Dark wood finish fixtures are available in motors rated for indoor or outdoor applications and even in between. Regular maintenance will ensure that your matte black ceiling fans will remain attractive and in working order for years to come. Due to their dark finish, dust is more apparent and regular dusting with a soft cloth is recommended.
Color Schemes to Complement Black Ceiling Fans
Black ceiling fans add a unique touch to home offices, workshops, and commercial spaces. Dark color overhead fixtures may seem too simple, but they can serve as a strong decorative element when installed in the right design scheme. A flush mount black ceiling fan placed in a brightly-colored room with vivid furnishings, flooring, and accessories can create a dramatic design element. Alternatively, an iron ceiling fan in a black and white themed room adds a fresh, but elegant touch.
- Glossy Black - Combine with white or ivory colored walls will show a more modern, minimalist look. This is great for living rooms and dining rooms.
- Iron Ore Black - Match with burnt orange walls and a grey trim to create your teenage son's perfect living space.
- Matte Black - Couple with deep red, creamy ivory, or wood colored patio furniture.
- Bullion Black - Pair with hunter green or navy blue walls to create a breathtaking entrance to your home.
Is it possible to use these ceiling fans on patios and other outdoor areas? When you choose a black outdoor ceiling fan, you can enjoy the best of an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. It is a good addition to your outdoor living space. The same goes for a properly rated black modern ceiling fan you might install on a porch.
