HOW TO USE CEILING FANS WITH LIGHTING TO ENHANCE ROOM DESIGN

CEILING FANS WITH LIGHTING

Ceiling fans with lights typically come in one of 3 options: fans with downlights, fans with uplights, and fans that combine both styles. Each type can replace ceiling mounted lights to provide an energy and cost saving lighting option, with the added benefit of cooling. Aside from having the unique incorporation of both of these functions, ceiling fans with lights can also be found in a wide variety of brands, styles, sizes, designs and colors to match any décor.

Ceiling fan lighting design planning

A well-planned lighting design is essential to creating the perfect room, and the right lighting with the gentle cooling (and even warming when needed) of a ceiling fan with lights, creates an ultimately comfortable space.

TYPES OF CEILING FAN LIGHTING

Ceiling Fans with Down Lights

To provide direct light to a room, you can use ceiling fans with downlights. These fans have lighting fixtures mounted below the fan motor. Ceiling fans and downlights are typically purchased together as complete unit, but you can also buy downlights as separate light kits and add them to an existing ceiling fan. Light kits come in all sorts of customizable lighting configurations.

Ceiling Fans with Up Lights

Ceiling fans with uplights have the light mounted on top of the ceiling fan motor, so they cast indirect light toward the ceiling. They could also be configured to cast light outward to the sides of the room, or down through the fan blades. Ceiling fans with this type of lighting are ideal for creating an elegant, but practical ambiance.

Ceiling Fans with BOTH Lights

Ceiling fans with lighting are also availlable with uplights and downlights for more flexibility. You could use use both lighting options at the same time or choose between one or the other, depending on the mood you want to create or how much light is actually needed at particular times (like tv viewing versus reading).
