    Does Ceiling Fan Size Matter? Spoiler Alert: Yes, Yes It Does

    A ceiling fan can add visual interest and drama to any room, tying the furnishings together and helping everything appear more finished.

    Today, we're sharing a quick guide to choosing the right ceiling fan size, so you can get it right every time!

    Why Does Ceiling Fan Size Matter?

    How to Fix a Noisy Ceiling Fan to Keep Your Sanity

    One minute, you're relaxing underneath the gentle breeze of your ceiling fan. The next, you're trying to ignore the pesky, repetitive click you hear every time the blades spin.

    Today, we're discussing how to silence a noisy ceiling fan, so you can get back to enjoying yours as intended!

    Check the Blades

    Is your ceiling fan making noise? 

    If so, check the fan blade connections.

    The same applies to the screws that connect the blades to the fan motor. If these become loose, a ticking noise can also occur.
