Friday Favs: Ceiling Fans That Don’t Suck

Yup, you read that right.  Ceiling fans get a pretty bad design rap and it’s often rightly deserved. Unfortunately, in some places (like, say 100+ year old homes that don’t have central air) they’re quite necessary.  They don’t have to be eyesores though!

I think decent looking black/brown fans are the easiest to find.  If you have a taste for mission/craftsman or industrial you’re especially in luck.

If you’re into mod, you should have pretty good luck with silver finishes too.

White I think is the hardest, which is a bummer because they’re the most likely to recede into (but they should still look good though!) A number of the options above come in white but I think the white finish looks cheap on lot of them.  These guys stand out from the pack a bit though.

You know what was cool about all of the above?  Everyone one of those was under $300. Not dirt cheap, but not ridiculous either.

If you’re in a place to splurge there are definitely some more beauties out there.  I really wish I had a place for #3, that one may be my favorite out the entire roundup!
