An attractive ceiling fan is always a good idea-especially in rooms with lots of daily activity or overnight guests. A remote-controlled fan allows overnight guests to tailor the room’s temperature to their liking, so they’ll get a better night’s sleep. And of course, a well-rested guest is a happy guest!
