Ceiling fans have come a long way since the father and son team of John and James Hunter developed their first steam-powered ceiling fan in 1886. And for 135 years, Hunter Fans has continued to be at the forefront of innovation. Quieter, more efficient motors and styles that balance any creative vision have led to a renaissance in ceiling fans in interior design.
Whether to keep fresh, cool air circulating throughout a home or complement a room’s décor, when choosing a ceiling fan, it is essential to find one that efficiently cools the area while adding to its aesthetic appeal.
Most homeowners have experienced the discomfort of a room full of stagnant air. By circulating air and reducing the temperature, a ceiling fan can help mitigate this issue. Some ceiling fans can reverse their circulation to push warm air down towards the living area and reduce the cost of heating a home. With so many different types and sizes to choose from, finding the best stylish ceiling fan with a light kit can seem overwhelming.
Hunter ceiling fans work in every space, from damp-rated outdoor fans to streamlined modern fans for the living room, bedrooms, and baby’s room. Ceiling fans used to have a bad reputation for being clunky and old-fashioned, but these fresh new styles can enhance any design.
Outdoor Fans for Stylish Porch Living
What began as a nice-to-have quickly evolved into a functional design and a gathering place for family and friends. These days, porches and patios have become an extension of the home and are often decorated in much the same way interiors are. This means porch swings, area rugs, tables, sitting areas, and, of course, a stylish ceiling fan with light for both design and airflow.
How to Select the Right Size Fan for Your Room
When installing a ceiling fan on a porch or patio, make sure it is safe to be used under those conditions. Damp-rated fans can be installed in covered outdoor spaces. Wet-rated fans that can be directly exposed to water are more durable and can be installed in covered and uncovered outdoor areas. Wet-rated Hunter fans feature WeatherMax®, a process that uses tough materials that resist corrosion from water and salt air. WeatherMax® is top of the line for outdoor durability.

Living Room Ceiling Fans That Create Ambiance
A ceiling fan with light will shed warm, inviting ambient lighting throughout the living room. The key is getting the correct diameter and size for the area. First, measure the room and determine the square footage by multiplying the room’s length by its width. As a general rule, a room measuring 350 square feet or less can handle a fan 48 inches to 58 inches in diameter. For a room measuring more than 400 square feet, a fan of 60 inches or more in diameter is better. Or, of course, depending on the size and layout of the living room, more than one ceiling fan can be used.
The height of the living room ceiling will determine the mouthing type: flush, low profile, or a down rod that will bring the fan closer to the occupants of the room. Living rooms generally need eight feet of clearance from the floor.

Bedroom Ceiling Fans That Help You Sleep
Most sleep experts recommend that the bedroom’s temperature be between 60 to 67 degrees for optimal sleep. One way to ensure a cool temperature for sleeping is to install a ceiling fan. It can cool in the summer and, with a reverse motor, can keep the room warmer in the winter. Room size and ceiling height will also guide mounting type and fan size.
