8 ceiling fans that aren’t ugly

Ceiling fans.  Practical, but not always pretty.  The one in our master died during the insane storm the other night that dumped 16 inches of rain on Houston in 24 hours.  Power being knocked off over and over again must have fried it.  By the way, we are dry at our house.  So many surrounding us aren’t.  Please keep those families in your prayers.

Since we were going to have to replace ours, I thought I might go a different route this time around.  In my search for a non-ugly ceiling fan with a light (which is much harder than it should be) I ended up finding a few that looked pretty darn good!  I even threw in one without a light because a) it’s gorgeous, and b) not everyone needs the extra light in their space.  The best part of this round up is that a number of them are under $250.


one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight
Here are a couple of these fans in real homes, showing off how pretty the actually are.
I’ve already got the fan, just need to find the time to get it up.  Which one do you think I went with?  I think you’ll be surprised 😉

    we just ordered new ones and i am stoked! we have lower ceilings though so it limited my choices, but anything is better than the atrocious ones we have now!

      Isn't it so exciting to actually be excited about a ceiling fan?!! I'm eager to see what fans you're using. When we realized ours had died I let out a very dramatic "nooooooooooooo!!!" knowing I was going to have to replace it. I'd rather have bamboo shoots shoved under my finger nails than have to switch out another ceiling fan. It's the extra wiring for the remote control part that I end up messing up every single time.

    I was just sourcing fans for a client and waffle on whether to go with a statement piece or a white one that would disappear into the ceiling. But these options are so pretty!! Can't wait to see what you chose because everything you do is magic.

      Yep, I thought about going white for that same reason and then ended up doing the exact opposite. Story of my life. Plan and plan on going right and then at the very last minute I flip the blinker left 😀

    Ooh can't wait to see your choice! I'm gravitating towards #2. Nice roundup gal, fans have come a long way who knew?! Not I.

      I know! I was pleasantly suprised when I started looking! I could have included some really hot looking ones, but of course, those are ridiculously expensive.
