Why We Love 42" Ceiling Fans
Appropriate for almost any area of the home is a 42-inch ceiling fan. But just because this style of ceiling fan is somewhat small in its size does not mean it can't deliver the decorative impact you need from a contemporary ceiling fan. In modern spaces, 42" fans fill a noticeable decorative element and they also carry plenty of power to move air and keep the room cool.
Where 42" Ceiling Fans Work Best
This specific size of ceiling fan has the unique ability to fit almost anywhere in the home. Much smaller than a fan with a 72-inch blade span yet bigger than a 36-inch fan, a fan with a 42" blade span diameter successfully occupies bedrooms, kitchens, breakfast nooks and smaller living rooms with ease. Many of these fans can also be used outdoors too. Just look for a damp or wet rated UL rating when searching for a fan for your covered deck or patio. And finally, consider one of these fans to keep your office space cool. You'll appreciate the extra breeze and fresh air when working those long hours.
42" Ceiling Fans For Every Style
With a relatively small blade span, a 42" ceiling fan is easy to introduce into almost any room. And whether your home is filled with traditional decorations or boasts with modern designs, you'll find just the right ceiling fan to integrate into your decor. If you appreciate the clean, crisp look of aluminum and stainless steel on your ceiling, look to a fan from The Modern Fan Company. These style-packed contemporary fans are available with light kits too, allowing you to fill your rooms with light as well as a cool breeze. Traditional spaces will love the classic look of a 42-inch fan from Emerson Fans, especially those featured wood-grain blades. Lastly, for a well-designed ceiling fan any room can appreciate, look to Minka Aire's collection of fans with 42" blade spans.
