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

Not only can adding a ceiling fan to your nursery help the look of the room, it might also help your baby 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 Fan’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 and the Cranbrook 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 or Ocala 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 or Cranbrook would look perfect in this room.


Still want the fun of color in the nursery but in a more updated way? Our designers share that Southwestern prints and textiles are a perfect way to do that. Try the Sentinel ceiling fan to top off the look. Our ultra low profile ceiling fan, Minimus, is a great choice too, featuring reversible blade finishes to customize the look.
