Crib, rocking chair, ceiling fan: Getting your baby’s room ready

A medical study found ceiling fans can help baby’s sleep safe. We’re no medical experts, but Hunter Fan Designers do have some ideas on choosing a ceiling fan for your nursery. 

Not only can adding a nursery ceiling fan help the look of the baby’s room, researchers say it could also help your little one sleep safely.

A study by the Journal of the American Medical Association found using a fan in the nursery while the baby is asleep reduces their risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) by 72 percentSt. Louis Children’s Hospital shared information for helping babies sleep safely, and one of their tips included keeping a ceiling fan on in their room to circulate air, adding it will prevent the baby from overheating.

We’re not medical experts, but we can tell you when it comes to décor Hunter’s designers are noticing people are getting away from the typical blue or pink baby rooms. Here are some unique nursery decorating ideas they shared:

Soft Modern

Hunter Fan Designers say soft modern designs that are more playful lend themselves well for nurseries. You might even find some of our simple designed ceiling fans like the Anslee casual ceiling fan and the Cranbrook modern ceiling fan are easy to clean too.

Bye-bye brights: Our designers are seeing more gender neutral colors – greys, beiges – and more rustic finishes in baby rooms. It gives the room a cozy and relaxing feel. We recommend the Donegan rustic ceiling fan or Ocala farmhouse ceiling fan that feature rustic finishes for a farmhouse style nursery.

Mid-Century Modern

Diaper changing meets sophistication. Rounded edges give a soft feel to the room while vintage inspired furniture gives a mid-century modern nursery a liveable but grown-up feel. We think the Leoni chandelier inspired ceiling fan or Cranbrook modern ceiling fan would look perfect in this room.
