Non-Hideous Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are usually a huge no-no in interior design. However, their functionality is fantastic in the hot months as they can be a life saver in circulating air and saving energy. I also think they can look great in any space. Here’s a few examples of how ceiling fans can work:

The Subtle Fan:

At first glance at a white ceiling fan at the store, you may think ‘cheap-o’ and move on without a second thought, but doesn’t this white fan look great? I love how it just blends into this beautiful ceiling and doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. Another perk to a white ceiling fan is they are usually super inexpensive. This ceiling fan is similar to the one above, and this one is only $37!

The Feature Fan:

Sometimes a bold fan can work in a space..really well. This fan completely changes the feel from a regular traditional room to a breezy, casual Caribbean feel. This fan is a great comparable.

The Complimentary Fan


This fan neither blends or screams for attention. It fits perfectly with the minimal room and just works with the space. This basic fan would work great in almost any space. I also like this fan for a little more contemporary feel.

My verdict is there are a lot of bad and expensive fans out there, but some great ones too! How do you feel about them? Do you love it or hate it?

    I just moved into a new space. I have never had a ceiling fan until now. All I can say is that I sleep beautifully with the air circulating in my bedroom. I’m a fan! It may be a guilty pleasure, but I don’t mind the look either. You have shown that a fan can still add style to your room. Thanks!!
