If you're thinking about installing a ceiling fan, and you want to create a modern look, it's a good idea to find one that features brushed silver instead of a wood finish. A ceiling fan adds just the right accent to your home office, bedroom, living room, or any other room in your house. You can even design an entire room around a modern looking ceiling fan.

A ceiling fan is a great accessory if you're designing a theme room. For example, if you want to decorate a room with an airplane motif, a contemporary ceiling fan is a great touch. Many modern ceiling fans come with blades that look similar to airplane or helicopter rotors. These don't have to be limited to theme rooms, however, as they can provide an appealing contrast to more traditional rooms.

Unique Ceiling Fans

You can turn your family room, dining room, or nook into a '50s style diner with the right furniture and a retro ceiling fan. You can find vintage dining tables, stools and other furniture in antique and specialty furniture stores. Once you find the right furniture you can install a ceiling fan with chrome or silver blades to complete the look of the room. An easier option might be to seek out reproductions or antique-style fans from lighting stores.

If you like the look of wooden ceiling fans, you can find several different updated models. One of the best things about these fans is the unique look of their blades. Some retailers even allow you to design your own ceiling fan by selecting blade shape and color, lighting fixture and glass design. In addition, you can choose to add a dimmer or control switch for added versatility.
