Oftentimes, one specific piece can enliven or cinch in a space. Think couches, wall art, or fireplaces as room-enhancing items. 

But this isn’t always the case. 

When it comes to home renovation or redecorating, you may find integrated parts of the space like light fixtures, shelves, walls, or ceiling fans that make a difference. In today’s blog, Ellecor’s interior design team will cover all things to consider when it comes to updating the ceiling fans in your home.

The Style Your Home Currently Reflects

For people who love to redecorate (like us), the average home goes through redecorations twice every eight years. This usually occurs when trends change over time and homeowners want a new and refreshed look. When considering updating a piece of furniture that is a staple within your home, it is important to consider your taste and how it might evolve with time. 

Most individuals don’t change everything in their home when they redecorate. They change key pieces that attract the eye and a few staple items. 

When it comes to an item as consistent as a ceiling fan, it’s important to look at pieces like:

  • Living room furniture
  • Bedroom furniture
  • The material found on accents and legs of these pieces of furniture (wood, metal, plastic, etc..)
  • Dining sets
  • Trim color throughout your house


Ceiling fans normally stay consistent within your home. They will not change with the seasons, and they most likely won’t receive a ton of attention outside of summer or warm weather. 

Unless of course you use them as an overall theme enhancer. 

An excellent way to do this would be to install low-profile fans, and then place diffusers with essential oils in each room. Following that, turn the ceiling fan on a low speed to allow your scents to permeate your home.

This being said, ceiling fans represent one key to pulling together the scene you want to present to your family and guests.. 

If you choose one style of fan, it is important to stay consistent with the style and fluctuate on the color. Or stay consistent with the color and fluctuate on the style. Small details like these allow the room flow to be cohesive throughout the home. 

Current Market Trends

It’s important to consider current trends when it comes to your fan of choice. You should think about the style and also price. Items that are beginning to slightly age out of the market trend are more affordable than items that are currently the hot ticket item that is in high demand. 

Thrift Stores/Overflow Shops

If you do find yourself crushing on a piece that you simply cannot let go of, but the price might be too high, check overflow shops or local surplus/thrift shops that focus on home redecorating. 

Head over to places like:

  • Overstock
  • Wayfair
  • Amazon
  • Dirla’s -if you’re wanting to go local!

These are places that often have overflow stock of the current trending items at more affordable prices.
