designers v. ceiling fans | Somewhere in Middle America

So I’m watching “Bang for Your Buck” on HGTV this weekend, and the always adorable David Bromstad remarks that a ceiling fan in a master bedroom makes the room look a little cheap. Yes, an elegant chandelier in a master bedroom would definitely make the space appear more luxurious, but what if you like (or need) a cool breeze to help you sleep?

Now, I’m not a huge fan of ceiling fans (pun intended). For the most part, I find them to be an eyesore. But my husband insisted we have one in our bedroom and our kitchen, and I let him win that fight. They may not be my favorite, but I can’t argue that they aren’t functional.

Can somebody explain to me…Why do designers despise ceiling fans?
