Along with state-of-the-art features and exceptional energy efficiency, they come in an array of statement styles that perfectly complement every room in your rustic home, from open concept kitchens and living rooms to modern farmhouse porches.
The Wingate rustic ceiling fan’s straightforward design and simple rustic elements create a transitional look that quietly blends with your modern farmhouse space. Does your farmhouse bedroom call for a modern touch? The brushed nickel would be the best match. For a more simple yet industrial designed room, the noble bronze is the perfect fan.
Reversible fan blades let you control the look of your room. The washed wood and rustic wood reversible blade finishes provide the perfect accent to your farmhouse chic spaces that let you change the look as often as you change your mind.
Whether your dream design is coastal or rustic, Wingate provides exceptional design as well as comfort. The included stylish handheld remote gives you cooling and lighting control at your fingertips. Use it to change the fan speed if the competition is heating up in the game room or dim the lighting in the living room during a house party.
The Mill Valley farmhouse ceiling fan is the fan you’d expect to see in farmhouse style open concept kitchens in Texas. It makes a statement with a fresh feel, to elevate your casual farmhouse lifestyle. The open hood light is reminiscent of casual country farmhouse design, complete with a white hood reflector designed to maximize light output.
The barn red finish is a perfect pop of color in farmhouse spaces and really makes a statement! Complement the red finish with grey and white gingham pillows and white rockers on updated traditional front porches like the one at our Huntervention™ in Charlotte. Matte black or matte silver works with clean yet modern farmhouse kitchens with white subway tile and black industrial inspired metal chairs.
This pendant ceiling fan is engineered to resist rust, so it’s ready for patio life in the South. It’s at home on covered farmhouse porches, verandas, and sunrooms. The ultra-quiet three-speed WhisperWind® motor will give you a breeze on cue during the hot summer days.
Liven up your modern rustic spaces with a fresh breeze from the Key Biscayne coastal ceiling fan. The clean lines and pronounced nautical tones on this fan adds style as much as a comfortable beach inspired breeze to your favorite farmhouse rooms.
Aptly named for the Florida village, the Key Biscayne’s fresh coastal feel is perfect for indoor or outdoor spaces. Hang it above your light-filled sunroom or centered on your coastal covered porch. The unique finishes in Onyx Bengal bronze or Weathered Zinc provide interesting options for creating a unique farmhouse look. The weathered and barnwood inspired reversible blades pair well with other rustic wood finishes in your space.
Mother Nature can bring her best because this fan was engineered to withstand the elements. This damp-rated fan’s stainless steel hardware removes any doubts about taking on coastal weather.
Traditional and trendy coexist from room to room in your farmhouse inspired home with the Brunswick ceiling fan collection.
The Brunswick is a fresh take on turn-of-the-century design that is at home in clean industrial or modern rustic rooms. The cast iron inspired housing complements other industrial inspired hardware in the home like dark sink faucets and worn metal inspired cabinet handles. The vintage inspired LED Edison bulb and clear ribbed glass add to the casual yet rustic look of any room.
The variety of sizes and finishes in the Brunswick Collection let you keep a cohesive design throughout your home while tailoring it to the look of each room. The white finish keeps a clean look in master bedrooms with white nightstand lamps and a bed finished off with white and cool-toned textiles. The natural iron finish complements dark wood finishes or hardware in modern industrial living rooms.
This transitional design maintains a trendy look to complement your farmhouse décor while also appealing to your tech savvy side. The 60” Brunswick is a part of Hunter’s SIMPLEconnect™ Collection of ceiling fans, offering Wi-Fi enabled options to connect your smart home applications. Use a voice-command with Amazon Alexa, the Google Assistant, or Apple® HomeKit™ to change the fan speed or brighten the light. Convenience is always in the palm of your hand with the handheld remote control or your smart phone.
A patio ceiling fan helps keep dad cool while he’s grilling outdoors. For dads with a green thumb, the right ceiling fan will help create a well-rounded look outdoors. The red Mill Valley farmhouse ceiling fan is a great pop of color to complement vibrant landscaping while the Coral Bay outdoor ceiling fan enhances rustic and coastal covered porches. For modern patios, try the Cassius with the tonal blade side. We also have wet-rated fans that are perfect for pergolas.
For the dad who likes the latest gadget, get him a smart home ceiling fan. Our Wi-Fi ceiling fans connect to smart devices like Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, and the Google Assistant so you can use your phone, tablet, or voice command to control your ceiling fan and light. The tech savvy dad from our Huntervention in Dallas geeked out that our designers included the Symphony smart home ceiling fan in the weekend room refresh.
Make sure your dad stays cool while his workouts heat up by getting a ceiling fan for his home gym. A flush mount ceiling fan is ideal for rooms with low ceilings to make sure his hands don’t hit the fan while he’s lifting weights. Connect a smart home ceiling fan in the home gym so he can use a voice command to turn up the fan speed without missing a rep. Read more about refreshing your home gym with a ceiling fan.
Competition heats up whether it’s during a video game or a family Monopoly competition, so keep egos cool with a ceiling fan in the rec room. Match his style while also providing energy efficient cooling and ample light, from a fan with masculine detailing like the Apache rustic ceiling fan to the unique, modern look of the Vault caged ceiling fan.
No need to settle for an ordinary fitness room; create a stylish home gym that inspires you to push through the pain to achieve your goals! Hunter’s design team suggests a modern look for home gyms that are machinery heavy and a more eclectic, bohemian look for casual home gyms.
For modern or industrial style home gyms, we like a simple neutral color palette. The Apache industrial inspired ceiling fan’s exposed hardware complements the utilitarian look of exercise machines. For the yogi’s home gym, use pastel colors to create a zen ambiance and accentuate it with a jute rug, bohemian patterned pillows, and a ceiling fan with rustic finishes like the Brunswick or Coral Bay.
Especially for small home gyms, you need to take advantage of every nook and cranny you can. Storage benches are a great place to keep yoga mats and weights. Hang jump ropes, headphones, and towels from a coat rack.
Take a bookcase from IKEA, paint it, and add some decorative wallpaper to the back to make stylish, inexpensive shelving for your yoga blocks, weights, gym towels, and shoes. Add storage baskets to keep magazines, books, and even your workout plans.
No need to overheat during a workout! A home gym ceiling fan will keep you cool during sweaty HIIT sessions (like this one).
The way a ceiling fan cools people down makes it perfect for home gyms: Ceiling fans create a wind chill effect that makes you feel cooler, kind of like when you have an open window in a moving car. So while you’re heating up, the fan’s breeze will help you feel cooler.
Connect your smart ceiling fan like the Symphony to your smart thermostat, and schedule the fan to turn on when the temperature in the room gets too hot. You can also connect it with your smart devices like Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant so you can ask it to turn up the fan without interrupting your workout.
You don’t want to hit your hands on the ceiling fan or ceiling fan blades, so consider your ceiling height along with how far off the ground your treadmill will have or you how high your arms go in jumping jacks. A low profile ceiling fan like the Dempsey hugs close to the ceiling to allow for plenty of head space (and arm space during jumping jacks) while still providing powerful, efficient cooling.
You need mirrors to make sure you’re maintaining proper form during your strength training exercises or cardio barre workout. Invest in one large mirror to have installed on your wall, or if you need a more economical solution buy a few full length mirrors (you can usually find them for between $15-40 to hang yourself).
Breaking a sweat during a workout is gratifying, but the bacteria on the machines and mats from that sweat isn’t so much. That’s why it’s important to keep cleaning supplies handy in your home gym.
For the machines, Merry Maids suggests combining equal parts water and distilled vinegar into a spray bottle and use with a microfiber cloth. They recommend using warm water and a couple drops of dish soap to wipe down weights and yoga mats (add a few drops of lavender essential oil to your yoga mat cleaning solution for a touch of zen).
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 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.
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.
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.
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.

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 mid-century 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.
Small space; big design opportunity: The Cassius modern ceiling fan was featured on a recent episode of HGTV’s Fixer Upper when the son of metal artist and Fixer Upper regular Jimmy Don sought out the help of the Gaines to renovate a small house in Crawford, Texas.
Chip and Joanna Gaines transformed the barn-like structure into a modern masterpiece. Inside, Joanna decorated with rustic finishes and textiles coupled with modern design elements with sleek lines, giving the home a clean industrial look. It’s the perfect fit for the Cassius ceiling fan, which features clean lines for a masculine, modern aesthetic and industrial inspired touches like the buttons on the blade irons and exposed hardware.
The Cassius’s simple design easily ties into hardware and color accents around your space. The dark finish on the Cassius the Gaines’s used complemented the other dark finishes in the bedroom, like the metal bed frame and dark accents in the textiles. To have a ceiling fan seem more integrated with the ceiling, the Cassius white ceiling fan finish would be a good choice.
The Fixer Upper bedroom transformation featured vaulted ceilings for an open feel, but with tall ceilings comes the need for a ceiling fan to keep people cool in the summer. They also added big windows to let in lots of natural light as well as canned lights to provide amble light, so this modern ceiling fan without light is perfect for this space.
This Fixer Upper episode is a perfect example of how outdoor ceiling fans can easily be used in indoor spaces, too. The Cassius 52-inch ceiling fan is damp-rated, meaning it will hold up to the environmental elements in covered porches and patios. You can also use outdoor ceiling fans like the Cassius in your indoor spaces as well, like bedrooms, garages, home offices and rec rooms.
The Cassius is available in four finishes, and all four finishes come with reversible blades. Choose the matching blade finish for a tonal, modern look, or choose the side with a soft wood tone to add a rustic look for your farmhouse style spaces.
This versatile ceiling fan features WhisperWind® motor technology for powerful yet quiet air performance. Installing it to a vaulted ceiling like the Gaines? You might need an angled ceiling adapter and extension downrod, which you can explore in our ceiling fan accessories.
Be sure to catch the episode re-run and be on the lookout for the Cassius ceiling fan!

I was excited to take part in our Huntervention series and even more excited to learn we would be in Nashville, Tennessee. It was a great opportunity to give Jeremy Motz, whose house flooded in 2011, a room refresh for his daughter Keylee.
Jeremy is a busy electrician, working to help support his six-year-old daughter, Keylee. After their house flooded, Jeremy bought a new one only to find out he would have to replace all of the flooring on the first floor. With his budget depleted, Jeremy no longer had a way to give Keylee the room she deserved.
I knew that this would be a unique opportunity to refresh our first children’s room for the Huntervention tour and was totally up for the challenge.
For Keylee’s room I chose the mid-century inspired mint Cranbrook ceiling fan. I felt like the mint color was really fun for a kid’s room; it adds a pop of color, but not so much that it’s overwhelming. We used the low-profile version which tucks it up a little bit higher to the ceiling but still offers the same amount of air flow.
Before we did the Huntervention, Keylee had storage along the one side of her room where she kept all of her toys and dress-up clothes. As I went through the process of designing her room, I wanted to make sure this refresh was something she could grow up with; so we tried to give her the same amount of space but in a more elevated way.
It was a really great feeling to see Jeremy and Keylee’s reaction when they first saw the space – Jeremy was so taken aback and Keylee literally fell onto the floor in excitement.I was just thrilled with how it all came together. It’s exactly like what I envisioned. Jeremy put it well when he first saw it: It’s kind of retro but still pretty modern. It worked really well for a kid’s room. All the little details that I felt strongly about and wanted to come through were all there. I was really happy with how the mini table and chairs matched the fan so perfectly; I think it makes for a good balance in the room.
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.
