Our favorite spaces: The family game room

The family that plays together stays together. A game room is the perfect space for playing board games with your kids or hosting parties. With all the people in the space and the heated game night competition, consider a game room ceiling fan to keep things cool.

We offer a variety of stylish ceiling fans to cool down the competitive egos while giving your game room flair.

For the techy game room: the Apache smart home ceiling fan

The Apache Wi-Fi enabled ceiling fan has a handsome, modern industrial look that works well in large indoor game rooms. The rustic finishes and exposed hardware on this ceiling fan will complement other masculine design details in the game room like leather slingback chairs and decorative detailing on drawers. Install this ceiling fan with LED light above a pool table or poker table as a focal point and to keep the room bright. The Apache is one of our SIMPLEconnect™ smart home ceiling fans, meaning it works with smart home applications like Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, and the Google Assistant. So you can ask your smart device to turn on the game room ceiling fan while it checks challenged words during a game of Scrabble.

For outdoor game rooms: the Cassius outdoor ceiling fan

For outdoor game nights or cookbook parties, try the Cassius modern ceiling fan. This ceiling fan without light is damp rated, meaning it’s been engineered to withstand the elements endured in a covered patio. An outdoor ceiling fan like Cassius gives a cool breeze on cue while also keeping the bugs away. The white ceiling fan works with modern designed outdoor game rooms while the black finish fits with farmhouse game room patios.

For tiki themed game rooms: the Bayview tropical ceiling fan

A bamboo bar, tiki masks, and the Bayview tropical ceiling fan complete the look of an island inspired game room. The Bayview’s decorative palm leaf blades will get you in the mood to relax and unwind with a mai tai (drink umbrella optional). Use this tropical ceiling fan to keep a cool breeze in the summer; reverse the ceiling fan direction to keep things warm and reminiscent of tropical weather in the winter. This ceiling fan is also damp rated, so you can use it in your outdoor game rooms as well.

For casual, clean game rooms: the Sentinel casual ceiling fan

The Sentinel’s simple lines and crisp finishes adds a statement to game rooms without being overpowering. Play darts with one hand while using the other to control the ceiling fan speed and dimmable LED light with the included handheld remote. The Sentinel comes in 52-inch and 60-inch blade spans, making it a perfect fit for large basement game rooms or open concept spaces.

For modern game rooms: the Vault caged ceiling fan

Make a statement in your game room with the Vault caged ceiling fan. The wraparound cage disguises the ceiling fan blades while adding a playful element to the Vault’s modern design. We love the brass cage as a pop of color in a minimalist game room. The metallic detailing also plays well with color on the pool table or game machines in your retro inspired game room. Need additional light in your space? Add the Vault accessory light fixture to light up game night.

Along with a game room ceiling fan make sure you’re also considering other design elements in the room. Use cabinets and storage benches to organize board games and movies. For movie buffs, consider a big screen TV for the media center or even a projector. Add to the vintage vibe of mid-century modern game rooms by adding an old school video game like Pac-Man or a retro pinball machine.

Huntervention™ tour shows how ceiling fans transform spaces

­Simple updates like paint, pillows and a new ceiling fan can make a room look brand new, and Hunter Fan Company’s team of designers showed how it’s done during the 2017 Hunterventions tour.  Our designers helped five families with a room makeover to show how small updates can make a big difference.

We began in Virginia Beach where a family of five (plus two dogs) needed help updating their living room, a project they just hadn’t been able to get to in the five years that they’ve lived there.

Design Director Patrick O’Connell brightened up the living room by painting the walls a light color as well as painting the fireplace white. To give the room an updated rustic, coastal look, we used wood surfaces with rustic finishes, blue décor accents and topped it all off with the Hepburn modern ceiling fan in matte black. This chandelier inspired ceiling fan is unmistakenably a modern, updated version of traditional design, and O’Connell especially loves the pendant inspired globe light.

The Charlotte Huntervention was a special one for us: 16-year-old Gabriel has loved ceiling fans since he was a little kid. Designer Claire McRoberts was excited to give their wraparound porch a fresh farmhouse feel.

The covered porch was a big space so she used rugs to define smaller spaces among the big space. To give it a modern farmhouse design, McRoberts used elements like white rocking chairs with traditional spindle detailing with clean lines on the back and added four red Mill Valley farmhouse ceiling fans. The Mill Valley is inspired by vintage pendant lighting with a hooded light with an Edison LED light bulb.

In Nashville, Designer Alex Haggar refreshed a kid’s bedroom for Jeremy’s daughter, Keylee. Their home was flooded in 2011, and the money Jeremy wanted to spend on Keylee’s room went to replacing the first floor’s flooring instead.

Alex updated the storage Keylee keeps her toys and dress closes in to be more elevated, modern and something she could grow up with through the years. He chose the Cranbrook mid-century modern ceiling fan in mint to add a subtle pop of color; the low profile ceiling fan tucks higher into the ceiling to optimize space while still providing quality and efficient airflow.

O’Connell met newlyweds Hayley and Hensley in Atlanta to update the master bedroom in their first home together. He wanted to blend their eclectic style with modern décor, so he decided on a bohemian-modern design, utilizing light woods, natural woven textiles and plenty of plants.

Hayley and Hensley live in an older home with small rooms. O’Connell selected the Aker, a small ceiling fan with mid-century design that would made their bedroom look bigger but still grand.

Our final Huntervention of 2017 took place in Dallas where McRoberts gave the Larmer family’s outdated living room an updated, modern look. Painting the brick fireplace and adding new décor gave the room a modern look. McRoberts also arranged the furniture to take advantage of the large space and be conscientious of the highly trafficked room.

Susan Larmer loves modern glam style while her husband Rick Larmer loves technology, so McRoberts chose the Symphony smart home ceiling fan in one of the new finishes. The modern design complemented the look of the room while the technology allows the family to control the ceiling fan with either the pre-installed remote, their cell phone or with Amazon Alexa.

They call him The Fan Man

Eric Laird isn’t an ordinary 12 year old boy. When he was just 2 ½ years old, Eric was diagnosed with autism. As a baby, he loved watching ceiling fans spin.

Heads up. The ceiling is back.

The Sistine Chapel. The Capitol Rotunda. What can we say? People used to appreciate a good ceiling.

At Hunter, we never forgot about the ceiling—in fact, we haven’t stopped thinking about it since we invented the ceiling fan back in 1886. So we’re glad there’s a ceiling fan renaissance happening.

Everyone from interior designers to first-time homeowners are getting savvy to the importance (and effortlessness) of having a quality fan and the impact it can have on your entire living space.

Take your room by the reins.

We like to think of the fan as the crown jewel of the ceiling. But it’s not just about aesthetics.

Whether you’re going for a showstopping centerpiece or a chameleon that blends right in, a ceiling fan changes your environment. You want to make sure it’s changing it for the better. Quiet, wobble-free and fresh designs — the quality and craftsmanship of a Hunter ceiling fan puts you in control of your environment, allowing you to create the exact look and feel you want in every room, indoors and outdoors.

A mere appliance? Think again.

Chances are there isn’t a lot going on up there on your ceiling—and that’s okay. But that doesn’t mean it just gets to stare blankly down at you, doing nothing for your space.

The right ceiling fan is an easy way for you to put your ceiling to work for you, quietly and powerfully moving the air. So much more than an appliance or fixture, a Hunter fan combines effortless functionality with timeless design to transform the look and feel of your living space.

What does that really mean for you? Breakthrough technologies that fit your lifestyle and your budget, plus style choices that will complete the personality and décor of every room perfectly. It’s all about innovative solutions that improve your quality of life in small ways—but ways that matter.

It’s time to fall in love with your ceiling again—or for the first time. Welcome to Hunter.
