Are you a big fan of galvanized metal? If it is an integral aspect of your living room furnishings and décor details, you can't go wrong with improving your airflow with a grey ceiling fan. Of course, there are different shades of grey. A case in point is the galvanized finish ceiling fan that leans toward a pewter tone. Another one delights with a sleek brushed aluminum finish that includes the light package. Simply add an LED bulb light kit with clear glass shades and you've got yourself a multi-functional addition to your home decor!
Making a Statement with a Galvanized Ceiling Fan
A ceiling fan with gray blades introduces versatility to the space that lets it fit in with lighter and darker furnishings. Examples include stainless steel, smoked iron, or brushed nickel fan blade finishes. A charcoal ceiling fan is perfect when your space needs a black accent piece but there is little room for decorative touches. In contrast, a glossy black fan is a better option when there are already plenty of black decorative touches in sight. Of course, a rustic grey ceiling fan makes the most sense in a farm style kitchen. Most ceiling fans come with downrod included, which also work on sloped ceilings. However, if you have lower ceilings, you can find a flush mount ceiling fan that sits closer to the ceiling.
Gray & Slate and Charcoal Finishes Make up Graphite Ceiling Fans
It is not entirely unheard of for graphite indoor/outdoor ceiling fans to be constructed, at least in part, from the mineral graphite. Yet as already noted, graphite more often refers to the color of the fan. There can be many shades of graphite, ranging from light gray to a darker hue; thus, it is possible for consumers to find graphite fans that will go well in nearly any room, no matter its other colors.
As far as cleaning goes, graphite ceiling fans have a distinct advantage. Because of its color and the color of dust, a graphite ceiling fan will not show dust as readily as ceiling fans that come in other colors. This means that people can get away with dusting them less frequently than they would dust fans of other colors. Still, graphite ceiling fans should be cleaned regularly. A consistent cleaning schedule will minimize the circulation of dust allergens and keep the fan running well many years into the future.

Did you know that you can welcome the grey tones on the outside as well? A galvanized outdoor ceiling fan is perfect for your patio or porch. Some buyers choose to turn these appliances into accent pieces for exterior use as well. This is the case when you install a galvanized windmill ceiling fan under your pergola roof.
