Contemporary ceiling fans have “blown” onto the scene with more excitement than ever. For many years if you were looking into contemporary fans you would have to spend a fortune for really what amounted to a basic fan in a metallic finish.

Contemporary style is defined by a clean, minimalist and fashion forward way of decorating. Many are eye catching and strong design elements, and some can be relaxed and laid back.
 
Ceiling fans also serve many purposes. They have to move air, but many are also a light source. They also become part of the rooms decor.

Best New Contemporary Ceiling Fans

Artemis Fan - $549

Artemis Contemporary Ceiling Fan

This fan is available in 10 colors.

Quiet or neutral colors, simplistic and un-cluttered are all great ways to describe contemporary style. Others will include sleek, monochromatic and conforming to current ideas of decorating.

Contemporary ceiling fans fit right in with these descriptions, and are functional as well- sending trapped warm air back down to the living area, and creating a draft to keep you cool in the summer.

 

Concept Fan - $289

Concept Contemporary Ceiling Fan

The Concept fan is one of the most popular and has so many options.

44” or 52”, stem hung or flush mount (only 11.5” including a light) and four finishes. Prices are $290 - $340.

 

Flyte Fan - $579

Rainman Fan - $469

And we can’t forget about outdoors.

The Rainman fan is shown in brushed nickel, and also comes in bronze with an amber glass, and galvanized for an urban industrial setting. This fan is wet location rated, so it can be directly in pouring rain. The light is bright too at 100 watts.

 

Strata Fan - $319

The Cirque - $524

And for a more daring or artful fan, the Cirque becomes a feature in the space.

Spectre Fan - $519

And occasionally, we need a pop of color. The Spectre fan in brushed nickel and orange has up to the minute, and on-point color and style.

The Spectre fan is more often sold in white and brushed nickel.

Final thoughts

Mid-century or modern styles are also considered to be contemporary, all have clean lines in common, and when styling is fresh and up-to-the-minute, all fall into the category.

Whether you are replacing a current outdated fan or are designing a new home there are a wide range of styles and price ranges. You can have a fan that completely updates your home. No more settling for a “typical” looking fan. You can have something “FANTASTIC”!

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
