Finding cute ceiling fans can be just as much of a dilemma as finding one that works well! We live in the south, so when we built our home I had no choice but to dive into the great ceiling fan search.
We ended up choosing 5 different kinds of stylish ceiling fans, because as much as I love statement lighting, we need that breeze!
We used ceiling fans in all bedrooms, our main living space, and both porches too. Cute ceiling fans are hard to come by, but I have a few favorites – and one that I have used in more than one of our homes because its just that good!
Here’s a tip if you’re afraid of losing your fan remote:
Just install it directly onto the wall, like we did in the photo above! You can use an actual screw – or just a heavy duty command strip.
15 Cute Ceiling Fans
(FYI – I won’t be recommending the TriAire fans in my boys bedroom – both are noisy, and one already had to be replaced).

1. The Wave: My Favorite Stylish Ceiling Fan
The light is bright and has a dimmer option – making this a great choice for a bedroom that needs a stylish ceiling fan.
2. Monte Carlo Maverick
Styling Ceiling Fans With No Light
3. The Minka-Aire Wave Fan
Don’t need a light? If you have enough alternative sources of light like recessed or lamp lighting (much more pleasing on the eyes anyway), you can get away with a fan with no light. I love this minimal and cute ceiling fan!
4. Minka-Aire Roto Fan
It blends right in to the ceiling, is super fast and dead silent. Instead of making a stylish big statement, this is the fan you won’t even notice is there!
*Just a note to make sure you measure the right size downrod for this fan.
Brass Ceiling Fans
5. Hunter Hepburn Brass Ceiling Fan
6. Brass and Acrylic Ceiling Fan (Save version)
If you are looking for something a little feminine but don’t love a steep price tag – this reasonably priced brass and acrylic fan is one to consider. I think it is equally stylish as the more expensive one that is quite popular, listed next.
7. Sonnet Satin Brass Ceiling Fan with Acrylic Blades
This brass and acrylic fan is seriously beautiful. If you have satin brass already in a room, consider using this fan as well. You will pay for this beauty though – as unfortunately this fan has a higher price tag.
8. Wooden Ceiling Fan
This is a beautiful high end fan (here) at a great price! If you’re having a hard time finding stylish ceiling fans, nobody could argue that this fan looks dated or ugly.
Outdoor Ceiling Fans
9. Coastal Outdoor Ceiling Fan
Another affordable option, this indoor/outdoor fan is sleek and coastal. The blades have a whitewash finish on one side, or you can turn it around for basic white.
10. Our Outdoor Ceiling Fans on the Porch
We like this fan so much we bought it in the white version for our front and back porch. It’s great! We used a longer download on the back patio since the ceiling is slanted. It’s available here in a few finishes, and sold in white here.
It’s powerful and very quiet! Of course we clean it in the spring, but this would be necessary for any outdoor fan.
11. Stylish Xeno Sells Fans
Another fan that blends into the background, this cute Xeno fan is sold at Overstock – but is cheaper at Pottery Barn! It has an option to mounts to a sloped ceiling. If you need a download longer than 4.5″ you can buy one separately (scroll down on both websites).
And yes Pottery Barn sells fans! They do not manufacture them but carry some cute ceiling fans for other name brands.
Affordable Ceiling Fan
12. Honeywell Ceiling Fan
One of the most affordable fan to make the list is right here! If you need a few fans or your on a budget, you will want to consider this one. Sleek styling – and the blades can be switched from black to brown anytime!
13. Boho Ceiling Fan
For those who dislike the minimal look of many fans considered stylish, you will love this unique fan. A little nod to the boho trend with natural beads, it would work in a kids’ bedroom.
14. Flushmount Ceiling Fan (A “Ceiling Hugger”)
I was nervous about our ceiling hugger fan for our bedroom. What if it hummed? What if it wasn’t fast enough? But it’s quiet and powerful. We are hot sleepers and have this running most of the year!
The light is also bright enough alone for our bedroom, although we use lamps and recessed lighting as well.
Sleek, stylish, and blends right into your surroundings, this basic white ceiling fan is a no brainer. There is not one thing wrong with the way it looks! If you are suffering from design fatigue with your home, this fan is one you can pick and be done!
This cute ceiling fan is so popular there are almost 2000 reviews for it (available here). It’s simple and clean design make it a great choice.
Guidelines For Getting It Right
If your ceiling height is eight feet, you will want a flsuhmount ceiling fan, like the kind we have in our bedroom. If nine feet or taller, purchase a downrod. I would not go much more than 12″ of downrod for nine ft ceilings.
It never looks good design wise to have an itty bitty fan with small blades in a large room – not to mention it won’t be able to properly cool down the room. Here are some guidelines for picking out the correct size fan:
- For rooms under 144 sq ft, choose fans under 42″
- For rooms between 144 and 225 sq ft, choose fans between 44-55″
- For rooms between 225 and 400 sq ft, choose fans between 50-62″
- For rooms above 400 sq ft, choose fans above 62″
