20 Gorgeous Modern Ceiling Fans We Love

A round-up of 20 beautiful ceiling fans to add modern style to a room while keeping the climate comfortable.

No matter if it’s July or January, we’re still clinging to our ceiling fans for dear life over here. I blame it on the fact that we live in the South.

Whenever I share Olivia’s bedroom or our living room, the number one question I got was “Where did you get that ceiling fan?”

Every time I put a ceiling fan in a room, the number one comment I get is “Thank you for putting up ceiling fan!”

Maybe it’s not what all the “cool kids” do (punny mom jokes…har har), but ceiling fans get more of a bad rap than they deserve.

If you’re in the same fan must-have situation, this one’s for you. I rounded up all of my favorite ceiling fans that are seriously GORGEOUS! They’ve come a long way in the last 5-10 years.

We currently have 5 in our house (a must here in the usually hot, humid Carolinas even with adequate a/c).

Ever since we found bladeless ceiling fan chandeliers as an alternative to the traditional blade ceiling fan, there’s been no turning back for us.

This woven fandelier we put in Olivia’s room is perfect for a bedroom since the moving air is strongest directly underneath. It’s great for hanging over a bed if you’re a hot sleeper.

This fandelier that I spray painted gold in our living room cost a little more than we’d normally spend on a fan, but I don’t regret it one bit.

Ceiling Fans in Our Home

Most of our bladed ceiling fans can be changed up by flipping the blades over to reveal a different color, if we ever wanted to switch up the look without spending anything. And every single one of them gets serious breeze action happening when we need it.

I’m totally smitten over this modern matte brass fan in the guest bedroom. It comes in other colors too.

This pair of white outdoor fans have helped soooo much for cooling our back porch on breeze-less days and also to keep the bugs away.

And I swear I wouldn’t sleep a wink without this black and brass fan in our primary bedroom.

Are you in Camp Ceiling Fan or Camp Chandelier in the bedroom?

As much as I would LOVE to be Camp Chandelier (because they’re so prettyyyyyyy), I have a feeling I’ll always and forever be a fan girl.

Got any other good fan recs to add to the list? We’re always fans of a good fan.

  1. I agree with an above commentor: I’m not a ‘fan’ – another mom pun πŸ˜‰ of the ceiling fans with the 3,4,5,6 search lights glaring down. A ceiling fan with a single globe or drum light though I think is ok. I also tend to lean on the simple side with ceiling fans like classic all white. There are plenty of alternatives for southerners who are still team chandelier though; like the bed fans (a fan that fits under your sheets!) Or an oscillating pedestal fan in the corner of the room. Just my 2 cents πŸ™‚

  2. Yes, yes, yes! It irks me to no end on every single home show I watch, all the designers say…a fan…no way. And change it out to something else. I always wonder if the homeowners immediately change it back to a fan!! Fans are the best, wherever you live. We are in California so every room has a fan. Wouldn’t have it any other way.
    THANKS so much for putting this out there!! Love your IG and Blog….!!

    1. Definitely in Team Fan. Like you I need that air moving at night. Put the pretty Chandelier in the bathroom and the dining room. but a fan in the bedroom is a must for me!

      1. What website is the black and brass fan you have in your master bedroom from? I cannot get the link to work and I would love to know! It’s beautiful!

  3. Ceiling fans are a must in AZ and I have them on all year especially in my family room and bedroom! Thanks for the fan inspirations as I was thinking of getting some new ones but without lights. You chose some really attractive options!

    1. Ceiling fan girl, it’s hot and humid in SWFL. I’ve been told that a fan moves your AC air in your room/house. Just put one in the master bedroom a combination of a $5 fan from Habitat for Humanity and a light kit from one we had previously. So much cooler. For those who do not like a light with a fan you can buy fans without light (s) or remove a light from a fan you really like and cap where the light was attached. We have 3 ceiling fans now and will be installing a 4th. You can reverse the rotation of the blades in the colder months.

  4. I love chandeliers, and I love ceiling fans (where they are needed). What I do not love is ceiling fans with light fixtures built into them.

    1. I am the same. I would rather have a clean, beautiful ceiling fan and a pretty lamp or two in the room. I do have recessed lights in the main areas as well but zero fans with light fixtures.

  5. Team ceiling fan for sure here in Arizona. Love the look of chandeliers, but need the air movement for comfort, no matter the air conditioning temp. Thanks for sharing your faves!
