Question: What is the best ceiling fan to install in a tray ceiling?
This post was awarded #1 Answer at Yahoo Answers!
A Tray ceiling adds certain elegance to a room, so the ceiling fan you choose to install in your tray ceiling needs to be attractive as well as functional since it will draw more attention to and become part of this decorative focal point.
Aside from style (which is to your personal taste), I would suggest first looking for a ceiling fan that has a built-in uplight, which will add a dramatic effect by casting soft glow on the tray ceiling. You will certainly want the uplight to have a dimmer and operate independently from a downlight (if you choose one).
You will probably want to consider a fan that has a remote control or wall control…or the best, a fan that can use both a remote control (you keep on your nightstand) and a wall control you can use to turn on the light when you enter the room.
Finally, you want to consider buying an upper end fan with a good quality motor so that it runs smooth and quiet in your bedroom and does not keep you awake at night, but rather helps promote a good nights sleep.
Without knowing the style of decor in your room, I cannot make definitive recommendations, however, there are several well-designed ceiling fans that I would suggest your first look at. They are the Romantic Breeze form Minka Aire, the Raphael by Emerson and the Banff by Emerson. Each of these fans will add a sophisticated level of elegance to your bedroom while giving you great performance and quiet operation. All come with an uplight that operates independent from a downlight are available as wall controlled or remote controlled fans (or both) for the convenience that I suggest.
These fans can be found at several places online, but I would suggest using the links below to get you started:
