Ceiling fans get a bad wrap, y’all. And I get it, I totally do. 90’s (and before) fans are not that cute. But, let’s get real. if you live anywhere warm (hello, South Carolina) fans can make a huge difference. I honestly have a hard time sleeping without one. I don’t think we will ever design a bedroom without a ceiling fan – at least not a bedroom that gets used very often. But, of course, you don’t want something ugly. That’s why I was so excited to find such a stylish ceiling fan for our nursery.

Characteristics of a Stylish Ceiling Fan

If you are looking for a ceiling fan with a lot of form to go along with all that function, here is what I look for in a fan:

  • Sleek design – a smooth shape that looks like one solid piece looks much more modern than a multi-colored or material fan.
  • A remote – dangling strings date a fan really quickly. I prefer fans with a remote control – they are much easier to use and look nicer, too!
  • A statement – or not – a big decision with a ceiling fan is if you want it to be a focal point in your room or not. In most cases, you do not.
    We were looking for a fan to go along with our coffered ceiling, which is the real star of the show. In this case, it’s best to get a fan the same color as your ceiling, for a more low-profile look.

The Torch Ceiling Fan by Fanimation

We selected the Torch ceiling fan by Fanimation (available at Lowes) for our nursery. Here’s what I love about it:

  • The sleek design of the blades and body
  • The very handy remote control
  • It features 2 lights – a regular down light as well as an uplight that we plan to use for nighttime feedings and baby care to hopefully keep us from getting too awake mid-sleep
  • The airflow – this fan can really blow! It blows over 5,000 cubic feet per minute, which might be hard to imagine, but it can get a really good breeze going, even on low. Such an upgrade from our 90’s fan!
