As you likely know, a ceiling fan can improve air circulation in any room in your house! This includes family rooms, bedrooms, nurseries, and bathrooms. However, if you’re considering adding a ceiling fan to your Vero, FL kitchen, there are a few things you need to think about! Today we’re going to take a closer look at some considerations you should think of before adding that ceiling fan to your kitchen.
- Height: Some homes don’t have high ceilings in their kitchens. It’s important that your ceiling fan can be placed at least 7 to 8 feet from the floor so that you or your guests don’t bop themselves on the head when walking through the kitchen.
- Cleanliness: Let’s face it: the kitchen is the one room in your house where cleanliness is crucial! Ceiling fans definitely collect dust and pet hair, especially if there’s a lot of moisture in the air like there is here in Florida! If you clean your ceiling fans frequently, this won’t be a problem, but you still want to make sure that you don’t install your ceiling fan directly over a stove or food prep area.
- Fire Hazards: You already have a few fire hazards in your kitchen with all of those electrical appliances so there’s always a possibility that something could go wrong. Make sure that your home’s wiring can hold the additional load when you add a ceiling fan to the mix. Have your wiring inspected – especially if your home is an older home.
