For very small areas such as nooks, stairwells, laundry
rooms, walk-in closets, or small bathrooms, we recommend 29"
to 36" ceiling fans. These fans fit nicely into tiny spaces.
Several of these mini ceiling fans are damp or wet rated and
therefore designed to withstand frequent exposure to
moisture like in bathrooms or outdoor patios.
Standard rooms vary from 10'x10' to 16'x16' (100 to 256 sq
ft) and includes large bedrooms, living rooms, and large
kitchens. For these, we recommend 50" to 58" ceiling fans.
Powerful fans are significant in cooling rooms of this size.
Under-sizing and under-powering fans often results in
constantly running the fan at high speeds which increases
energy consumption, delivers a stronger airflow which may be
less comfortable, and can limit the life of the fan.
Whisper-quiet fans should also be considered when selecting
fans for bedrooms.
Large rooms such as family rooms, large living rooms, large
master bedrooms, and outdoor patios (ranging from 289 to 400
square feet) are best with 60" to 72" ceiling fans. These
fans provide a large cone of air and can provide cooling
throughout the room. Making sure the fan has reasonable
power and airflow (CFM's) is very important for this size
Having a whisper-quiet fan can be very significant in
For great rooms, bonus rooms, game rooms, combination rooms,
or any room or area larger than 400 square feet, we
recommend using multiple standard size room fans ranging
from 50" to 58" each. Powerful motors with high airflow
(CFM's) are important.
Use one size larger. If your room has steeply vaulted or high
ceilings, we recommend a larger blade than typical for that size
