I’m not a big fan of ceiling fans. But in India, you need ceiling fans. We still must choose a ceiling fan for the kitchen, and it must have lights in it because it will provide the sole source of major light in the kitchen. This is usually a ghastly combination. But unfortunately it is a necessity to deal with. It’s becoming difficult to find an aesthetically pleasing choice among the places we know of in Chennai. So I search online. There is a Fanimation dealer in Mumbai.
The Inlet from Fanimation (this may not provide enough light):
Hubbardton Forge from Fanimation:
Air Shadow from Fanimation which has several different styles of light. Blades retract when the fan is not in use:
Sandella from Fanimation:
Or, do we install lights only in the ceiling and use a floor-standing fan when circulating air is needed in the kitchen:
Of course there is A/C installed throughout the apartment including over the dining area just outside the kitchen. But everyone is insisting we need a ceiling fan in the kitchen too. Sometimes despite what people insist, I will make my own choice. But with this, I don’t have the experience to know.
