A modern ceiling fan is a must-have fixture for an entry way, living room, or bedroom. Not only can a ceiling fan circulate air throughout the house on warm, stuffy days, but modern outdoor ceiling fans can keep you cool on your patio or deck. Contemporary ceiling fans can help set the tone of your home decor as your guests walk in the door, and a modern ceiling fan with lights can illuminate your rooms. If you need to both cool and illuminate a room, a modern ceiling fan with lights is the perfect solution. The look and style of your contemporary fan is just as important as its function. To match with the rest of your home’s décor, our modern ceiling fans’ come in a wide variety of blade finishes ranging from bronze, steel, nickel, chrome, and many others. The days of only bland, all-white fans are long gone, and with a wide range of modern and contemporary ceiling fans, from brands like Mathews, Minka Aire, and Fanimation, AllModern can help keep you cool indoors or outdoors while seamlessly complementing your home décor.

To truly blend your rooms style with your new contemporary ceiling fan with lights, the most important fan feature to focus on is a fan's blade and lighting finish.

room and fan sizes

Modern Fans by Room Size (in square feet) - AllModern carries a wide range of fan options and lets you easily shop by room size with the filters on the upper-left side of the page. The first step to finding the perfect contemporary fan for your home or modern outdoor ceiling fan for your patio is narrowing down your options based on the room size you’re shopping for. We recommend pairing the following room sizes with fan sizes:

Room Size (in square feet) Fan Size (in inches)
100 sq. ft. or smaller 29-36 in.
101-144 sq. ft. 38-42 in.
145-225 sq. ft. 44-46 in.
226-400 sq. ft. 48-54 in.
400+ sq. ft. 56-60 in.

fan mounting and bulb type

Modern Ceiling Fan Mounting + Bulb Type - Once you’ve selected an ideal fan size, the next step is to decide between Flush and Downrod mounting. When choosing a mounting type, the rule of thumb is to choose Flush mounting for a room with a ceiling under approximately 8 feet, and Downrod mounting for one above 8 feet. If you hope to minimize the profile of your fan, no matter the ceiling height, then Flush mounting will do that effectively as well. If you're planning to buy a contemporary ceiling fan with lights for your room, AllModern stocks modern ceiling fans with halogen lights, incandescent bulbs, LED bulbs, as well as fluorescent bulbs.

fan lighting and blade finishes

Modern Ceiling Fan Lighting + Blade Finish - No one can argue against the vital function of a ceiling fan in a hot, stuffy room, but sometimes their aesthetic appeal can be minimized and go unappreciated. Assembling a well-balanced, modern-facing room means balancing all the elements of its decor, not just the major furniture pieces. With that in mind, AllModern makes it easy to filter fans by functional features like size and mount type, but also by finish color and aesthetic appeal. The lighting finish of your modern fan affects both the look of the fan and the hue of the light it produces. While most modern fans feature lighter color finishes like white/cream, others use bronze, nickel, or other lighting finishes. Similarly, ceiling fan blade finishes range from bronze, steel, nickel, and black, to many others.
