12 Ideas To Update Your Ceiling Fan

Whether you are remodeling your space or it is just time for an update, these ceiling fans can bring a fresh look to your space in no time. We will show you some trendy options and give you the tools to help you get the right fit.


Before we get started, it is important to understand that when choosing a ceiling fan, size does matter. In order for your fan to be most effective, you must choose the size that is right for your room. The American Lighting Association has recommended guidelines to help you get the most efficient fan for your space.

Room DimensionsSuggested Fan Size
Up to 75 square feet29″ to 36″
76 to 144 square feet36″ to 42″
144 to 225 square feet 44″
225 to 400 square feet50″ to 54″

It is also recommended that your fan blade sit 8 to 9 feet from the ground. To accomplish this, there are different types of fan mountings available. A flush mount will help with those shorter, 8 and 9 foot ceilings, while those with a downrod will help to get you to just the right height for those taller spaces. There are even kits available for sloped ceilings and extended downrods if needed.
