    Love the look of these fans but can't imagine they blow much air compared to other types. How do they feel?

    The pitch of the blades pushes the air further out than you would think, so they work well. Although one of the double-headed, oscillating fans would work better, in my opinion.

    I just realized you're in DALLAS. I have seen your stuff on here before (love it) and never realized you're in the DFW. I wish I would've know that, we just finished a build out for our 4th fitness studio here. :(

    Thanks Brandi, keep me in mind for future projects, both at home and work. I love working with creative people! Also, let me know if you venture elsewhere. I just wrapped up a large remodel project in Austin.
    By the way, that was just a very good grade of glue-down commercial carpet, ready to take the pounding!

    Well, this is not my house and I haven't tried, but based on my experiments at home with my 8' ceiling, I would say it is highly unlikely under a 9' ceiling.

    The door is a standard 80" high door and the ceiling itself is another 32" above the top of the door. So this is approximately 112" total height for the ceiling or just over 9-feet. I would put the height of these ceiling fans (looking at the down rods) at about 8-feet high.

    Sorry, I don't remember the brand. It was just a low-pile indoor/outdoor, glue-down carpet.

8. Attic workout space in Texas. Gyms often take up residence in basements, but this small home gym shows that they can find room in attics, too. Houzz users especially loved the ceiling fans, which can really make a difference in a stuffy attic space.

3. Be aware of air circulation. It’s no secret — gyms are sweaty places. Consider installing overhead fans to keep the air moving properly.

If you have an aversion to the usual fan-blade shape, consider the sleek industrial look provided by caged ceiling fans.
