You don’t have to settle for a stuffy or uncomfortable home environment when you know it’s going to be hot outside. There are ways for you to augment air conditioning units and support the areas of your home that feel stale and unventilated in the summer with functional décor. Chandeliers and ceiling fans can do more than just look good. Here’s how you can use decorative fixtures to improve your home environment so that it feels aerated and comfortable.
Look for Chandeliers with Bright Finishes
When it gets warm indoors, it can be tempting to turn off the lights and try to see with only the glow of a dimly lit fixture. Try not to give in to this temptation. There are gorgeous dining room chandeliers with brilliant, cool finishes that can help the room feel bright, cheerful and more welcoming than hot outdoor temperatures. Refresh your home for summer using chandeliers with brushed nickel, polished chrome or flat white finishes.
Choose Ceiling Fans for Summer Weather
You can use ceiling fans year-round, but they are an excellent summertime investment if you want to supplement air conditioning units indoors or create a comfortable seating area outside. They circulate the air, helping it feel more comfortable and less stuffy. For indoor and outdoor ceiling fans, don’t compromise on style. You still want the room’s decor to be cohesive! Look for sleek, high-quality fans like Minka Aire fans to ensure you maintain the integrity of a well-designed space.
If you want to hang a ceiling fan in an outdoor space, know that damp-rated fans can only be used in covered spaces, while wet-rated options can be fully exposed to the elements just in case there’s a surprise summer shower. Additionally, if the fan comes with a remote, make sure to keep it in a safe place so that you can conveniently adjust the fan speed, control the light and turn the fan on or off.
Explore the Fixtures with Dual Functionality
Chandeliers with fans, also known as fandeliers, provide the comfort of a ceiling fan and the illumination of a chandelier. While they work well in smaller spaces like a walk-in closet or covered outdoor areas, you can also hang them in dining rooms and kitchens. Chandeliers with fans are actually an excellent feature for kitchens that get stuffy if there’s a lot of natural light or if you are frequently cooking and using kitchen appliances. The fan functionality of these fixtures works just as well as ceiling fans without lights, so they can also move the air easily throughout the room to create a comfortable atmosphere indoors when it’s hot.
When you use ceiling fans, dining room chandeliers and fandeliers in the summer, you make your home feel more welcoming for family, friends and other guests that may be stopping by. Whether you’re hanging out with friends on the patio, enjoying a meal in the dining room or drinking coffee in a quiet, sunlit kitchen, make the experience more enjoyable with high-quality fixtures.
