If you have the ceiling height for it, a modern ceiling fan can provide a clean, contemporary accent while cooling you down in the summer (or warming you up in the winter, if you buy one that is reversible). If you’re in the market for one, search for a style and size that complements your room, but won’t overwhelm it. Modern ceiling fans often have chrome or white housings. If it has a built-in light, be sure it has the amount of light you’ll need by checking the number of bulbs and wattage. An Energy Star rating indicates it will be more efficient. Do you want one with a remote, or are you happy with a wall control or pull chain?
