For both inside and out.

Thomas Loof for Amanda Lindroth

Growing up, you may have experienced the noise—and perhaps slight fear that it would come crashing down—of a loudly creaking ceiling fan when visiting your great aunt's house. Thankfully, there are now seemingly endless options of modern ceiling fans available with features like LED lights and remote-controlled motors. Plus, the designs range from textured rattan to sleek chrome finishes. While options are great, you may need help narrowing them down. "When choosing a ceiling fan, pick a model that blends in with the interiors and doesn't draw attention to itself," advises Cameron Watt, owner of hospitality group Acre, who utilizes ceiling fans in his Los Cabos Treehouse Hotel. "When it comes to fans, I choose function over fashion, and as far as technology, I advise buying one of good quality and quiet. There’s nothing a guest hates more than a wobbly, noisy fan; I want something both audibly and visually invisible." And we'd argue that the same is true in residential spaces. So ahead, discover great ceiling fan options at a variety of price points to upgrade and cool your home.
