The idea of using ceiling fans to decorate is relatively new – but you should be aware of it when planning your interior design components. Because, as you can see from the examples below, the right decorative ceiling fan can really define a whole room. Modern and contemporary? Traditional, classic? Stainless, wood, multicolored? We’ve put together some of the best fans you can browse – before you promise this great redesign.
Designing the room with the Enigma Ceiling Fan up from Fanimation is almost like decorating with art, right?
The Odyn Ceiling Fan (above) by Fanimation is a prime example of a modern style fan who knows your decorating ideas. The 84-inch blade gives this sunburst design a lot of weight despite its slim design.
Above is the gyro of Minka-Aire, an interior ceiling fan design unparalleled: 42 “Twin Turbo fans in oil-rubbed bronze finish for industrial or vintage look.
The Ar Ruthiane Collection (above) from Matthew’s Fan Company can work with any decoration you have. There are a variety of surfaces from copper to rich metallic colors. Double fans and spherical housing were the common denominators in the design of these exceptional ceiling fans.
The Angel (top), by Quorum International, is a modern design idea with an ethereal atmosphere. It’s not often that you find a fan that looks like it could swim away.
Above is another essential design for a ceiling fan that comes from Minka-Aire and is called Cirque. It is also available in different colors.
Palisade above, from Fanimation, is the ceiling fan of the South Seas design idea. Can not you just smell the ocean air and hear these palm trees rustling in the wind? This is a great decoration idea for an oblong space (or deck).
The Bianca Directional Collection (top and bottom) by Matthew’s Fan Company is the perfect fan to fit in those tiny spaces that are so hard to decorate. They can also be placed directly in front of vents to maximize the hot or cold airflow. And there is one more thing – they are also available in the same crazy metallic colors as the Ar Ruthiane Collection. Be sure to visit Matthew’s Fan Company website to see all the available colors.
The Artemis Ceiling Fan (top) from Minka-Aire is available in many finishes, including a translucent version. It speaks to modern, contemporary style and could work with almost any interior design idea you have with its sleek, bold lines.
The Brewmaster and Bourbon Street are fan fans (top and bottom). Perfect for designing with this old-fashioned New Orleans look. These are great pieces in a loft or on a covered porch – or as a finishing touch to your entertaining space.
The ceiling fan from Meyda (above) is ideal for decorating the lodge or cottage. And her stained glass model has such an Art Deco flair – it would be the culmination of a renovation of the interior of Craftsman.
And then there is Casablancas Candelier II (above) – candelabrum and fan in one. The ultimate decoration idea for the chalet in the ski area – and the covered outdoor terrace at the beach house. Keep an eye on decorative ceiling fans when you’re thinking about new furnishing ideas – they come out of shape.
But as great as the Candelier is, we would be remiss if we did not have the new Windmill Ceiling fans, all of which are trendy. Not for the faint of heart or for short blankets. But in a loft? A barn redo? An old church renovation or schoolhouse project? Bring it on!
