Choosing the blade material for a fan is crucial. The traditional materials used in the fan blades are wood, metal, and plastic. You can conveniently choose the blade finish that will complement your room décor. In case you are planning to install a fan in a moisture-prone area like a bathroom, go for blades with a rustproof finish.
