With the addition of new styles and functionality, designer ceiling fans are becoming a focal point for any space.
Fans have graced the ceilings of sunrooms, living rooms, and bedrooms for some time. But the latest fans do more than just cool; they add a designer touch to any space. Here are a few favorite styles—and some advice on where to try them.
If you need: A pop of color
Try: Cranbook modern ceiling fan
Works great: in kids rooms, arts and crafts rooms, kitchens
Functional and fun, Cranbrook – especially in mint – is reminiscent of something you’d see in an old-fashioned ice cream parlor. Yet its blonde oak midcentury-inspired blades give it a contemporary edge. The low-profile housing is designed to work well in rooms with lower ceilings and in smaller spaces.
If you need: A finishing touch for eclectic interiors
Try: Bennett transitional ceiling fan
Works great: In any room!
Bennett may have a traditional form, but it’s far from boring. The matte black finish includes a smoked glass globe for a touch of sophistication. If your aesthetic of choice calls for bold color or a mixture of furniture styles, this unassuming-yet-elegant fan is likely to fit right into the mix. Bonus: This ceiling fan comes in two different mounting systems to accommodate high ceilings and lower ceilings.
If you need: To highlight vaulted ceilings
Try: Ronan caged ceiling fan
Works great: In the great room, living room or bedroom
Sporting minimalist looks with just a slight bit of shine, Ronan feels like the “it girl” of ceiling fans. This style feels at home in almost any space, whether your design aesthetic leans toward farmhouse, zen or cottage. The sophistication of the brushed gold cage adds a hint of glamour to any space.
If you need: A cool breeze on cue
Try: Mill Valley modern farmhouse ceiling fan
Works great: In living rooms as well as covered patios and porches
The Mill Valley is damp rated, meaning it can withstand the elements on your covered porches and patios but still look beautiful in indoor spaces like living rooms and kitchens. With the pendant inspired body and rustic ceiling fan blade finishes, the Mill Valley ceiling fan fits in rooms with farmhouse and rustic decor.
If you need: A stunning finish to your casual space
Try: Maybeck casual ceiling fan
Works great: Mudrooms, dining rooms, game rooms
Inspired by Mission craftsmanship, the Maybeck ceiling fan fits naturally with bungalow architecture. The Maybeck’s casual finishes play well with the warm tones of leather furniture and wood planked floors. This fan’s gorgeous light fixture makes it a chic addition to a room needing a touch of drama.
