How to Use Outdoor Ceiling Fans Inside Your Home

There are so many wonderful ceiling fan designs out there, so why limit your choices when it comes to decorating your home? Sometimes a little outside-of-the-box thinking is all it takes to give any room in your home the perfect finishing touch.

For example, consider using an outdoor ceiling fan inside your home. A common misconception is that outdoor fans can’t be used indoors, but in fact they can! However, indoor ceiling fans can’t be used outdoors. If you’re going to install or replace your outdoor ceiling fans always make sure it has a damp or wet rating.

There are many ways an outdoor ceiling fan can be used indoors including living rooms, bathrooms, and bedrooms.

Living Room

The Orchid is a modern ceiling fan, but with its warm finishes this beauty will still fit perfectly in more traditional spaces. The walnut blades pair well with dark wood furniture while the Pewter Revival finish complements other warm metal accents. At 30 inches, the Orchid is best used in small rooms; however, in larger rooms multiple placements can also get you ideal air movement and peak performance.

The Perseus is a unique ceiling fan inspired by spacecraft design. The Perseus will grace your formal yet modern spaces with its earthy wood blades and Metallic SunSand fan finish.

For a juxtaposition, this new age fan can be placed in large, intricate Victorian inspired rooms to complement other modern furniture elevating your style.

Loft

Living in the city, color can be hard to come by. The Piston in Soft Sage is the perfect way to add a pop of color to any modern industrial environment. By accenting the room with other shades of green you can tie everything together for a balanced feel throughout.

Accent walls are also an easy way to incorporate color into a room that may otherwise be dull. The deep green of the accent wall in this particular loft allows the Piston in Soft Sage to “pop” while also subtly contributing to the room’s aesthetic.

Bathroom

An uncommon place to think of installing a ceiling fan, your bathroom may be where your favorite outdoor fan feels most at home indoors. The bathroom is the one room in your home where a damp rating is a must to avoid damage to the ceiling fan.

The Paume wet rated ceiling fan is a chic take on mid-century wicker caned furniture. The reversible blades also allow you to choose between making a statement or a more classic look and feel.

The Matte Black finish complements nearly any type of style but works especially well with other large pieces of black furniture. To make the Matte Black Paume really stand out, place it in a room with white walls and ceilings.

Bedroom

The Aya is a great example of how many different styles this fan design can work with. At the Casablanca x Sarasota Modern event in Sarasota, Florida the Aya was installed in guest rooms on the fourth floor.

Inspired by Japanese and Scandinavian furniture, the blades are meant to resemble fine wood shavings as they peel away from the body of the fan.

“I love The simplicity of the Aya fan and will probably be putting this one into my downstairs.”
