Rustic Windmill Ceiling Fans? What does that mean?

The term “rustic” is thrown around quite a bit these days to describe home decor and other accent pieces — including windmill ceiling fans. But surprising as it may sound, many people don’t know what that means exactly. Maybe they’ve got a vision of a log cabin dancing around in their head, or decor that’s new, fresh, and exciting but has the weathered look of something that’s been around for ages. Rustic is all of those things, but it’s also so much more.

To achieve the perfect rustic look for your home or outdoor living space, you need to emphasize natural and organic. 

  • Weathered finishes
  • Neutral colors (beiges, whites, browns, grays)
  • Pewter and Copper 
  • Natural, aged, organic furnishings
  • Tuscan
  • Raw materials
  • Hand-made
  • Ranch house
  • Farm house

Rustic is essentially anything that is the opposite of modern or contemporary. It’s approachable, relaxed, calming, earthy, and traditional. And it does wonders when it comes to adding your style to any space.

Once you have the decor, get a rustic windmill ceiling fan to match

Once you have the perfect rustic look for your space, the last thing you want is for the ceiling fan(s) to stick out like a sore thumb. Unfortunately, most fans on store shelves might keep you cool in the summer, but they aren’t going to match whatever rustic look you’re going for at home. This is where The Original Windmill Ceiling Fan Company can help.

Rustic is one of the top requested finishes our customers ask about when customizing the perfect windmill fan. 

And the possibilities are literally endless.
