Ceiling fans circulate the air in our homes and make any space more comfortable, cooler, and stylish.
When it comes to updating your home, modern ceiling fans have quite a lot more to offer in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
Read on for a list of five types of these unique ceiling fans you'll be excited to install in any space.
1. Industrial-Style Fans
The industrial movement is still going strong, and it's no surprise that this style has found its way into the world of ceiling fans. To get this look, try a fan with wooden blades accented with a matte black metal fixture.
You can find these modern ceiling fans for every room, ranging from small and short blades to extremely long and slender ones. Accent the industrial fan with an Edison bulb to give it an authentic look.
An industrial-inspired ceiling fan looks fantastic in a larger living area, great room, or home office. Cage-style shades over the lighting add to its rustic and modern appeal.
Keep the finish of your industrial ceiling fan in muted colors like burnished bronze, deep walnut, and black. Many of these designs are larger in size, making them perfect for great rooms and spaces with lofted ceilings.
2. Fandeliers: The Latest in Modern Ceiling Fans
If you adore the look of a beautiful chandelier but need the air circulation from a ceiling fan, fandeliers can be a great option. These unique fans make the chandelier center stage, but they use integrated blades for excellent airflow.
The concept of fandeliers is fairly new, which means it could be a bit difficult to find them. However, their popularity is certainly growing so they're becoming a bit easier to buy both online in an in-store.
A fandelier looks stunning hung over a dining room table or in a bedroom. The idea of integrating beautiful, intricate lighting with a ceiling fan gives you the aesthetics you want with the functionality you need.
For most fandelier designs, the frame or outer rim of the fixture protects the fan blades, and it's surrounded by decorative lighting. You can find these unique fans in almost any style ranging from ultra-contemporary to rustic.
3. Tri-Blade Ceiling Fans
If you're aiming for a minimalist look, give tri-blade ceiling fans a try. These sleek, sophisticated fans only need three simple blades to operate, which makes them a great option for smaller rooms or areas where less is more.
The best feature of most modern ceiling fans is that you can also choose the finish or color. Everything from light gray to black is available, making it easier than ever to match your new fan with the decor in the room.
Just because a tri-blade fan only uses three blades, it doesn't mean that it won't do an excellent job of keeping the room cool. As long as you choose the correct blade length for the room size, it should still ensure good airflow.
A tri-blade fan can be hung in a flush or semi-flush mount style to help keep the look minimal. You can also choose to hang it a bit lower, depending on the ceiling height and your preference.
4. Fans with Hidden Blades
Another new concept in ultra-modern ceiling fans is those with hidden blades. Often referred to as retractable ceiling fans, these unique fixtures keep your room beautiful without the excess.
When you turn the fan on, the blades unfold and begin to spin just like a traditional ceiling fan. Once you turn the fan off, the blades retract, leaving the unit to function just like a traditional ceiling light.
These popular ceiling fans are a great choice if you don't want to have to worry about constantly dusting and cleaning the blades. Since they hide away when not in use, it makes maintenance a breeze.
A fan with hidden blades accumulates a lot less dust, making them an excellent choice for people with allergies, too. If you only need air circulation occasionally, this style of modern ceiling fan might be right for you.
5. Fans as a Work of Art
Ultimately, you want your ceiling fan to look beautiful and complement your modern home. New styles boast an assortment of shapes, silhouettes, and finishes to give any room a bold touch.
To make your home unique, choose a modern ceiling fan with an unusually shaped design. Swirling blades, curved blades, and thin oversized blades can instantly transform the look of your fan.
Try a new fan in a finish like sleek chrome, rustic gray, or dark black to make your room pop. Lighting options can be anything from frosted glass shades to integrated LEDs and much more.
The concept of adding a modern ceiling fan to your home isn't new, but these unusual styles can really bring the drama. Try a bold new fan to give your home an updated look with just one simple change.
Find the Perfect Modern Fan
Whether it's a trendy fandelier or one with retractable blades, these modern ceiling fans are sure to impress. Choose your new fan based on your favorite lighting style, blade design, and finish.
When you install a sleek ceiling fan, it can instantly transform the look of any space to make it new again. Make sure the fan will provide you with the light and cooling effects you need.
