Maybe it was being raised in a financially 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 time I got the ceiling fan so I really can look in the mirror and tell myself that I have made it. But which one? It is time for me to look at…
Top 10 Creative and Unusual Ceiling Fans
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). Sadly it is no longer available, but you might well find one now and again on E-Bay.
9 – The Ceiling fan for Dark Knights
Now this is cool and sadly also not for sale any more. (what is it with not selling these things?!) anyway it still looks amazing and well worth a place in this list.
8 – All by myself.
If you see a modern looking fan in a hotel or restaurant chances are good that “ylighting” made it. They are the World leaders of design and functionality and make this rather awesome single blade one. And apparently it gives just as much down wind as one with 4!
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.
5 – Dreams of WWII
What is so awesome about this one is that it is nothing more than a plain old ceiling fan that has been painted and then installed onto a custom-made scene. Sadly that does mean that we can’t buy them, but the image link does have a great guide to making them.
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.
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 gymnastic one!
1 – In the 80’s Nintendo sold EVERYTHING!
Back in the 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 fan was made! Even if you do find a E-Bay auction for one expect to pay the earth for it. But for me it would mean I really had made it.
