Our Favorite Contemporary Ceiling Fans
A few weeks ago, Bridget shared a mini tour of the progress she has made in her master bedroom. During the home tour, she showed off the outdated ceiling fan hanging in her bedroom and discussed wanting to replace it with a contemporary ceiling fan or new light fixture. Whoa. We were not prepared for the flood of messages that came after showing this ugly eyesore. We’ll put the responses into 2 parties…
- People who say you must have a ceiling fan in the bedroom. How can you sleep without a ceiling fan?!
- People who say most ceiling fans are ugly, so if you can’t find a good one…swap it with a nice looking light fixture.
We’ve both had bedrooms with ceiling fans and without, and we don’t have strong feelings either way. And at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what anyone thinks…you’re the only one sleeping and living there, so if it works for you then that’s perfect!
I swapped my ceiling fan last year and absolutely love the instant upgrade it made to our master bedroom. We had an orangey wood one before, and I installed a sleek black one instead. It transformed the space and we use the fan every night. During the ceiling fan conversation on Insta Stories, many of you asked if there are any contemporary ceiling fans out there that aren’t big ugly eyesores. Lucky for you, we searched the internet and found some great ones. So if you want to keep a ceiling fan in your bedroom, but want it to look stylish, then we’ve got you covered with our picks!
