Here are ten of the most attractive (or should that be least offensive?) ceiling fans we’ve found in our travels. Number ten is a remote control, partially because we had a hard time finding ten attractive ceiling fans, and partially because with a remote control, you’ll actually use a ceiling fan to stay comfortable. Using a ceiling fan saves energy in the summer and can help you feel more comfortable year-round.
