Ceiling Fans | El Paso Home Builders

Summer is winding down, but in El Paso, it's still warm out there! Stay cool in your new home during these last days of summer with unique custom ceiling fans. A ceiling fan can make the nights more comfortable and at the same time, create a focal point in the bedroom. 

The rotation and position of your fan new homes is also very important. According to Home Tips, "During the summer, using a ceiling fan in conjunction with an air conditioner will allow you to set the thermostat higher without a noticeable difference in comfort...By raising the thermostat, you can save up to 30% on your air-conditioning the winter, a fan can re-circulate warm air that naturally rises in a room and is trapped at the ceiling. All you do is turn it on in the reverse direction."

All new homes are built differently. Some have high ceilings, some have lower ceilings. If your ceiling fan blades are too close to the ceiling, they will move less air. "Be sure the blade tips are at least 24 inches from walls or sloping ceilings...For ceilings taller than 8 feet, hang the fan from a drop rod so that it’s down where it can be more effective."

Dining Room | El Paso Home Builders

New homes can be built with all kinds of innovating ideas for the kitchen and your dining experience. For example, if you are looking for a less traditional dining experience in your new home, gather around the kitchen island. But that doesn't mean the dining room is dead! Take time out during your busy day to sit down at the dining room table and enjoy a wonderful meal in your new home. 

Houzz takes a look at several dining room experiences in new and custom homes. For a more traditional styled room, designers used a "neutral color scheme that would allow for the use of any color for flowers, place settings etc."

If you are more the contemporary type that loves splashes of bright colors in their new home, try emphasizing one piece, like the table. Houzz looked at a designer who did just that. "The approach to start with the table and play off of that piece worked because to effectively highlight an item in the space, you have to play up its strengths and let it shine....'Less is more' is always a great motto to stick by as well. Don’t clutter up your space with knickknacks if it’s the furniture you are really proud of. Let the table or the cabinet be the star of the show, and accent minimally but purposefully."
