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.

Shop ceiling fans for your game room and the other rooms in your home.

Stylish ceiling fans for every room

Calling all interior design lovers! A ceiling fan is not only a practical solution – it might be the piece of personality your space needs. Here are five unexpected spaces where a fan adds function and form.

1. Porch

You can’t exactly cue a cool breeze on a warm day—or can you? Having outdoor fans on the porch or a covered patio is a welcome addition when it’s otherwise uncomfortable to be outside. The classic look of the Brunswick rustic ceiling fan works well with traditional aesthetics of outside gathering spaces.

2. Game Room

When the competition gets fierce, you might need things to cool down. From an intense video game showdown or a healthy match of foosball, the Signal or Symphony Wi-Fi ceiling fans will look and feel cool in a game room. Bonus points: You can control them with your smart devices like Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant.

3. Nursery

Bring a new baby into the world and into a beautiful nursery. A chandelier inspired ceiling fan like the white Hepburn or Ronan with matte brass detailing is the perfect finishing touch. Having a ceiling fan in the nursery will also keep you comfortable while you’re rocking the baby to sleep.

4. Kitchen

From baking muffins to cooking pot roast, the kitchen gets toasty quick. Keep the room cool with a ceiling fan like the Donegan rustic ceiling fan. It has finishes that will complement your kitchenware. The lighting is great for when you’re reading recipes or the kids are doing homework at the breakfast bar.

5. Keeping Room

The newest must-have room is a cozy sitting room right off of the kitchen. Since things can really heat up, air circulation is a must. The mint green Cranbrook modern ceiling fan feels happy and adds a pop of color to the space. The soft modern form also ties in effortlessly with the clean lines in a kitchen.
