If the action in your rec room often gets heated, or if you or your guests like to smoke, then I would definitely recommend then you install a ceiling fan or two. Now I know that a lot of basement rec rooms and game rooms have lower ceilings, but did you know that it is possible to enjoy the benefits of ceiling fans even if you do have those low ceilings? Low profile ceiling fans, or “hugger” ceiling fans, are ceiling fans designed to sit very close to the ceiling. This means that such fans can be put into homes and other structures that have low ceilings, and normal activities can be carried on the room without having to worry so much about taller people knocking their heads on them. So you can now enjoy the comfort and cool breezes a ceiling fan provides even if you have low ceilings.
Low profile ceiling fans are available in all the same styles and varieties as other ceiling fans. This includes antique style ceiling fans, brass ceiling fans, brushed nickel and wood tones such as mahogany and walnut. A good example would be Hunter low profile ceiling fans, which are a popular brand of ceiling fan. Hunter fans are designed in popular four blade designs that add to the character of any room or home.
As you probably know, a ceiling fan can be installed in any spot in the ceiling that is wired and set up for a ceiling light. This means you can install a fixture that can be used as both a light and a fan.
Many styles of low profile ceiling fans are available with lights which would be perfect for use in smaller rooms or over a card table or bar area where that one fixture can function both as a light and as a ventilation system. In addition, most ceiling fans are now very easy to install, and most people can replace a light fixture with a ceiling fan by using just a ladder and a screw driver.
Many of the modern low-profile ceiling fans are stylish and futuristic looking. This means that they can fit in with any game room décor. They don’t look any different than standard light fixtures and I don’t think people really even even notice them much if they aren’t running. In essence, a ceiling fan does not have to be a giant wood and brass construct that dominates the room. It can a small stylish accessory that nobody needs to notice even when it is providing cooling, light and ventilation.
