Top 10 Creative and Unusual Ceiling Fans

Maybe it was being raised in a poor family that showed me that certain things mean a sign of wealth, that you have made it. A car, fridge freezer, big TV and ceiling fans are all a sign that things are going your way. While I don’t have a ceiling fan yet I do have a car, big TV, and fridge freezer! So maybe it is the time I got myself a ceiling fan so I really can look in the mirror and tell myself that I have made it. But which one…

 


Top 10 Creative and Unusual Ceiling Fans


 

Kitty Hawk Ceiling Fan

10 – The coolest biplane ever!

This is a “Kitty Hawk” ceiling fan with a very distinctive pewter finish. Not only does it look good but has a massive 52-inch blade span (with biplane wing design).

9 – The Ceiling fan for Dark Knights

Now this is cool and sadly also not for sale anymore. (what is it with not selling these things?!) anyway, it still looks amazing and well worth a place on this list.

8 – All by myself.

You might expect to see this modern looking fan in a hotel or restaurant. Apparently, it gives just as much downwind as one with 4 blades!

7 – “Houston, we have cold air.”

Not only does this look amazing, but it is, in fact, home-made! If you have some spare time and some spare space models lying around this is the one for you. While it does still require quite a high craft level to make it I think it is well worth a go.

6 – Skateboards are cool and now they can prove it!

Upcycling doesn’t get any cooler than this amazing ceiling fan made from old skateboards! It might not look as amazing as some of them in this top 10 but it would still make a great talking point in any home and those large blades are sure to keep you cool.

The Hunter Fantasy Flyer Ceiling Fan

5 – Dreams of WWII

What is so awesome about this one is that it is nothing more than a plain old ceiling  a fan that has been painted and then installed onto a custom-made scene.

Helicopter Ceiling Fan

4 – The Cool Airwolf (ask your parents)

Now this is what I call a very serious ceiling fan. Not only does it look kind of logical it also looks kind of amazing! Sadly this is still yet to go into mass production but it is still cool and nothing will ever take that away from it. (…apart from the small blades maybe.)

3 – The wind from the forest

When it comes to design, class and the art of making a ceiling fan stand out from the rest, there are none better than Meyda Tiffany. Sure they will cost you an arm and a leg but quality this good was never going to be cheap.

Ribbon Ceiling Fan

2 – Keep cool with rhythmic gymnastics.

Once again this one is sadly not for sale yet, but just the sheer amount of modern style this one has means it does get a high placement in this top 10. After all, why have a boring old bladed ceiling fan when you could have a rather fancy ribbon one!

Super Mario Bros Ceiling Fan

1 – In the 80’s Nintendo sold EVERYTHING!

Back in 1986 when Nintendo was bigger than religion its self it just stuck a few Mario stickers on whatever stayed still for long enough and sold it! And it was that exact year that this cheap looking, but ultra rare ceiling  the fan was made!

  11. I think I know what I’m getting my boyfriend for Christmas. A Dark Knight Ceiling Fan! 😀

  12. Back of the net! I was waiting and waiting and waiting for that comment as I knew someone was going to be clever enough to do it. So it seems you win today’s Star Prize….a paper fan! (make yourself using your own paper)

  13. To be honest I hate ceiling fans!! Hate them with a passion, not because they look like crap, because as you illustrated they can be very cool, but because they are an absolute pain to clean. We forget about them through the winter when they are not used and the first hot spring or summer day, you turn them on and realize you haven’t cleaned it for eons when little tuffs of dust start flying. Then you pull out a chair or a ladder and start dismantling or trying to scrub the fan in place, neither option is great. If you scrub in place it is awkward, messy, and you never really get it clean. If you take it apart, you never get it quite back together the same, resulting in an off balanced fan with noisy whirling, which requires more trips up the ladder or chair to readjust.

    My second main reason for loathing ceiling fans, is my husband feels they need to be placed right above the dining room table and the master bed. I hate wind blowing on me. It is noisy and the sensation distracting. During the night I also get cold. Drives me nuts! We recently built our house and I designed it myself with lots of windows to get natural air movement. And I did not install a single ceiling fan anywhere.

    Now that being said If I had to buy one for myself, I would do the appropriate thing and chose Enigma, because it is stylish, and matches my home’s interior, but I would secretly want the Airwolf. I love the name and I loved the show. Second choice would be the Batman.

    Great post and I am glad you found me! I loved the idea behind the article, especially the idea that a ceiling fan meant you had achieved a certain level of wealth. I grew up in a poor family, and I still experience new things all the time that illustrate the changes in my status, such as the recent building of our new home. You have given me an idea about my own blog, about the stages of success and wealth we go through and those that might be to come.

    Thanks. Will explore more of your site.

  14. I had to put Mario up the top it is amazing! (and I am a Nerd) and I have no idea about the Helicopter fan but I would imagine it makes no more noise than a normal fan would.

  15. I knew you would put Super Mario in there somewhere. I find the ribbon fan rather interesting and unique, while the Kitty Hawk and the Hunter fantasy are quite good. Now the helicopter is such a great idea – does it make noise when it turns?

  16. Thanks for the post. Pertaining to the Mario fan, we have the Peanuts Gang/Charlie Brown sports fan version. It was the selling point of our first house. 🙂 When we moved we took it with us.

  17. I wonder when ceiling fans became popular. Growing up it was usually a big box fan in a window or a floor or table top fan. I have a ceiling fan in almost every room of my house. Living in Florida, I need the fans AND the air conditioner!

  18. The skateboard one’s pretty cool but I’d be worried the decks would be too heavy & probably never turn it on… but it would look good & definitely be a talking point! I remember Airwolf! 🙂

  19. There is a 1% chance my fiance would greenlight that Batman ceiling fan in our house. I’ve already assured her we’ll incorporate the high heels cupcakes posted the other day in some sort of family gathering or wedding event.

  20. You don’t know me well enough to leave me such an open remark lqtms so I will say I am hot and humid. When I was a kid, my brothers and I would make little fans with folded pieces of paper, rubber bands, a paper clip and a pencil. Though they are not ceiling fans we made due. I love that your post reminded me of that.
    I have visited “Britishland” on occasion and found the ppl there anything but cold though the weather was chilling at times. The constant mist cut right through me and I learned the value of owning a trench coat.

  21. Yeah the nerdy one is me 🙂 Now if there was a Star Destroyer or USS Enterprise 1701 (A,B,C,D or E) they would be the nerdy birdy

  22. I am in the southern states of the US. Fans are a staple appliance here. Having an air condition unit was fancy business but these fans are awesome! I never though about art on my ceiling lol.

  23. Whata great post. Not sure which one i would choice. I actually am not a fan of ceiling fans, we had one in the bedroom but it was removed soon after we moved in… Maybe I thought it would fall on my head. He. He.

Which one did you like?
