You’ve seen those dated, heavy eyesores haven’t you? But here are some attractive ceiling fans that do the job and either gracefully fade with your ceiling or make a statement.
You might want to switch out your ceiling fans for these updated ones. In many/most parts of the country, ceiling fans really help out in the summer. I like them in bedrooms and on porches. Not so much in dining rooms (they blow out the candles, cool the food and chandeliers look prettier).
Let me show you what we have bought for our new house and what I have recommended for clients.
Attractive “Fade Into Ceiling” Fans
Here is our simply designed Minka 52″ white fan. It comes in other sizes. My clients have been happy with it, too.
The well-priced ceiling fans on our porch are from Wayfair. They come in different finishes and have remote controls.
The Serena and Lily white counter stools are 20% off right now.
Statement-Making Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans with a bit of an industrial edge can look great in more masculine bedrooms and on porches with a connection to nature (especially porches with darker ceilings).

What Size Ceiling Fan Should You Get?
Here’s a handy little chart:
Ceiling Fan Direction
Did you know that in the summer the blades should be rotating counterclockwise and in the winter rotating clockwise? This is easily adjustible with the Minka remote (I’m embarrassed to say I had our bedroom fan going the wrong way to start).
