Do you like ceiling fans?

When Lizzy suggested adding ceiling fans in two rooms of our apartment, John & I had completely different opinions on them.  Ceiling fans remind me of summers at the beach - windows open, the smell & sound of the ocean, lazy days at the beach - what could be better?  They remind John of dingy & dusty old cabins that lack any sort of modern updates.  Somehow, (maybe it was my enormous belly!) I was able to strong arm him into getting the ceiling fans & he's quickly joined my team.  The air circulation sans air conditioner or boxed fan is amazing.  But it's funny to think that we both had such strong & opposing feelings towards a fan!  Do you have any associations with ceiling fans that make you like or dislike them?

I don't particularly love how ceiling fans look, but I can deny that they are useful! Especially in the bedroom — the breeze and white noise they produce help me sleep at night. Ironically, I recently wrote about ceiling fans on my blog. I wanted to know why interior designers seem to hate them with such passion!

We have them and love them! They are in the bedrooms and I love the sound at night.pve

I have a love/hate relationship with them too. I hate the aesthetics of them but they're so functional since we don't have AC. We recently went looking for new fans – almost all are awful. Where did you find yours?!

I love a pretty ceiling fan! We don't have any air conditioning so they REALLY help on warm days to keep the air moving.

ceiling fans are supposed to be great in nurserys too as having a fan running is supposed to help with SIDS. Good luck!
