How close is too close for ceiling fans?

6 years ago

We are building a house and our living room is around 18.5' x 20'. I had already bought ceiling fans that are 52" fans before the beams were put in, and am now questioning if the fans will be too close together. The 2 beams that I am hoping to put the ceiling fans in are about 6' apart, center to center, I am calculating about 20" between the tips of the blades. Is this too close? Should I get smaller fans?
