Finding cute ceiling fans can be just as much of a dilemma as finding one that works well! We live in the south and love the feel of air circulating, so we had no choice but to dive deep into a stylish ceiling fan search.
We ended up choosing 5 different kinds of stylish ceiling fans for our new build.
Here’s a tip if you’re afraid of losing your fan remote: install the remote directly onto the wall, like we did below. You can use an actual screw – or a heavy duty velcro strip.
1. The Wave: Our Girls’ Stylish Ceiling Fan
If you want a cute ceiling fan with a bright light and a dimmer option, we used this one in our girls’ room (here on Amazon and on Wayfair). It’s quiet – no motor humming – and with the pretty curved shape of the blades, it’s a great choice for a bedroom that calls for a stylish ceiling fan.
2. Monte Carlo Maverick
Cute Ceiling Fans With No Light
If you have enough alternative sources of light like recessed or lamp lighting (much more pleasing to the eyes anyway), you can get away with a fan with no light.
3. The Minka-Aire Wave Ceiling Fan
This is a minimal ceiling fan with no light, and curved blades. This is a great choice with high reviews too!
4. Minka-Aire Roto Fan
When we renovated our old house, we looked through what felt like hundreds of cute ceiling fans with no lights, and settled on this one (here on Amazon and Wayfair). We loved it so much that when we built years later, we purchased it again! See it in our living room above.
It blends right in to the ceiling, is powerful 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.
Nickel And Brass Ceiling Fans
Switching gears form the minimal to ceiling fans that stand out, the following are beautiful brass ceiling fans – the kind your guests will stop to admire!
5. Hunter Hepburn Brass Ceiling Fan
6. Acrylic and Brass Ceiling Fan: The Budget Find
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. It is equally stylish as the more expensive one that is quite popular, listed next.
7. Acrylic and Brass Ceiling Fan: The Splurge Find
This gorgeous ceiling fan is seriously beautiful. The design is so chic, it’s for sure a statement light in a space. If you are designing a beautiful room and looking for a brass ceiling fan that will stand out, this is one to consider!
8. Wooden and Nickel Ceiling Fan (Two Finishes)
This is a beautiful high end fan (here) at a great price, that comes in two finishes! One of the more contemporary recommendations on this list, this is a stylish ceiling fan that will help bring your space up to date.
Outdoor Ceiling Fans
Cute ceiling fans that are rated for that outdoors are so hard to find!
9. Coastal Outdoor Ceiling Fan
A fabulous affordable option, this indoor/outdoor ceiling fan is sleek, modern and coastal. The blades have a whitewash finish on one side, or you reverse it – just turn the blades around if you prefer a basic white. Do note that you will need lighting elsewhere, as this is an outdoor ceiling fan with no light.
10. The Java 3 Outdoor Ceiling Fan
We bought it in the white version for our front and back porch. It’s fast, silent has a light! We used a longer download on the back patio for our slanted ceiling. It’s available here in a few finishes, and sold in white here. After looking through all the cute ceiling fans that are rated for the outdoors, this one was a favorite!
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 Ceiling Fan Made By Xeno
Another stylish ceiling fan that has high reviews andblends into the background is this outdoor ceiling fan made by Xeno. It 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 from name brands.
Affordable Ceiling Fan
When buying several ceiling fans or just on a tight budget – this one is for you.
12. Honeywell Ceiling Fan
One of the most affordable fans to make the list is this ceiling fan right here! If you need a few fans or you’re on a budget, you will want to consider this one because it is just over $100. Sleek and modern styling – and the blades can be switched from black to brown anytime!
Boho Ceiling Fan
When you want a fan that’s anything but basic, how about a boho ceiling fan to fit in with your decor?
13. Curated Nomad Lindum Ceiling Fan
For those who dislike the minimal look of many fans considered stylish, you will love this unique piece right here. A little nod to this trend with natural beads, it would work in a kids’ bedroom too! This is a great choice for those who appreciate a unique style.
Cute Ceiling Fans That Are Flushmount For Lower Ceilings
For the rooms with low ceilings or tall beds, a flushmount ceiling fan, also called a ceiling hugger, is necessary.
14. Monte Carlo Flushmount Ceiling Fan
Because we have a tall canopy bed, a ceiling hugger fan was the only option on our 9ft ceilings.
I was nervous about our ceiling hugger fan for our bedroom. 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 here to circulate that air!
Sleek, stylish, and blends right into your surroundings, this basic white ceiling fan is a no brainer. The overall fan body height, from top to bottom, is 14.5″. If you are suffering from design fatigue with your home, this cute ceiling fan is one you can pick and be done!
There are almost 2000 reviews (available here). This fan is simple and clean design make it a great choice.
Tips For Ceiling Fan Size In Rooms
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″
