Where Floor Fans & Pedestal Fans Work Best
Thanks to their portability, these pedestal floor fans are versatile and can be moved to any room of the house. You can take a floor fan just about anywhere, from the living room to the bedroom, or from the kitchen to the garage. Similar to the portability of a floor lamp or table lamp, these fans can move from space to space with little effort and simply need an electrical outlet to be powered. Some floor fans can even go outside on the patio, keeping things cool when you are relaxing in your favorite patio chair. Just be sure the fan is safely rated for outdoor use where water may be present. That's the beauty of the floor fan - unlike a ceiling fan - their portability and new style range means they're not married to one location so they can accommodate any cooling or air circulation need no matter the room.
A Decorative Floor Fan for Every Style
The decorative nature of these floor fans allow them to work well with almost any interior design style. While they primarily appeal to an industrial and restoration look, you'll find these floor fans complement modern light fixtures and home furnishings as well. Fanimation offers a number of well-designed options that have tropical features, restoration appeal and more. Like Fanimation's assortment of ceiling fans, these floor fans also carry the quality and style we love. Savoy House offers a multi-speed floor fan you'll want to see and if it's a popping, colorful design you need, look to the selection from Stadler Form. Lastly, find contemporary designs in the selection from Minka Aire. In any space, you'll appreciate the character any of these floor fans can offer.
How to Choose the Best Floor Fan
Unlike a ceiling fan, choosing a floor fan is relatively easy because of the fixture's portability. However, you will still want to keep its size in mind and properly understand how much air the fan will be able to move. For larger rooms that have more stuffy air to move, you'll need a bigger option and conversely, in smaller spaces like breakfast nooks or home offices, a more petite floor fan will get the job done. You'll also want to check out the fan's airflow efficiency metrics to understand how a fan is rated on its air movement. And if it is a patio floor fan you need, you'll need to confirm it is UL listed for wet and damp locations, ensuring it is safe for outdoor use.
