Sometimes it's the simplest things in life that bring the most pleasure, and on a hot summer day, the spinning blades of your ceiling fan paint this picture nice and clear.

However, chances are your fan is used for more than just cooling down your house. Ceiling fan lights tend to be the focal point for illumination in many rooms, so it pays to make sure you select the right option.

Size Matters on the Ceiling
Bigger rooms require larger fan blades to cool them down effectively, so it only makes sense for an extensive room to make use of bigger and brighter lighting fixtures for maximum illumination. Using LED light bulbs that are designed to reduce glare or installing a dimming capability for your ceiling fan lights can help you avoid too much brightness.

Beyond the Tried and True
If you're not sure exactly what you want, you could explore your options by investing in a fan that can be modified after installation with a light kit.

Or, if you want your ceiling fan lights to avoid the standard look, you could consider using shades to cover the bulbs or focusing on uplighting that bounces off the ceiling instead of shining down. As with the other lighting fixtures in your home, you have a wealth of options.
