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. This Mississippi girl is a fan of the fan also!!! They’ve come a long way baby…& thank you for putting this list of fabulous looking fans together!!!
    Love your style and blog!

  2. I am all about the ceiling fans! I live in East Tennessee and it’s humid as all get out! Gotta have that air moving around as much as possible.

  3. A ceiling fan in my bedroom is a must. Even with the windows open, the air doesn’t circulate enough without one. I did replace a ceiling fan in the living room with a chandelier because we hardly use that room. I’m glad you wrote this post. People don’t have to settle for those ugly ceiling fans at the big box home improvement stores.
