Ceiling Fans in the Bedroom. Are you a Fan?

When we first moved in 10 years ago, chocolate walls were all the rage (at least that’s what I tell myself). The main problem is that our walls are brown, our furniture is brown, our curtains are brown, our ceiling fan is brown– too much brown. Fine if you like living in a cave. Not fine if you want a soft, serene, relaxing room.

In addition, the furniture just kind of overpowers the room. Those big posts almost touch our squatty little 8 foot ceilings. While not in the market for new furniture, there are some easy fixes we can try:

  • like removing the four posts on the bed (they easily unscrew).
  • A fresh, light coat of paint will also do wonders for lightening the room.
  • New window treatments.
  • Replace that very unromatic golf print over the bed.
  • Replace the current ceiling fan with a more modern, low-profile ceiling fan.

Are you a fan of ceiling fans in the bedroom? I feel like I must have one for a good night’s sleep, otherwise I tend to wake up feeling stuffy.

Our current fan hangs down over a foot from the ceiling. With 8 foot ceilings, that makes for a very short clearance. When searching for fans, my main focus was a flush mount, low-profile fan that looked more modern and less dated than our current fan. There are tons of options out there but for the price and style, I really liked this Hunter Morelli in brushed nickel.

I’ve picked out the paint and out new Hunter Morelli ceiling fan has arrived. We just need new window treatments, art and accessories and I think this room will look so much more modern. I’ll keep you posted as changes start to happen.

If you are still not sold on ceiling fans in the bedroom, here are a few ideas that may change your mind.


I received a Hunter fan for this post. All plans and opinions are 100% my own.
