Big Fans for Big Spaces

2014 July 25

Confession: We like big fans and we cannot lie.

There’s big fans, and then there’s biiiiig fans. We’re talking air movin’, statement-makin’ behemoths for your ceiling—those with a blade span anywhere from 60 inches up to a 80+ inches. But oversized ceiling fans aren’t just for turning heads. The utility of these bad boys is perfect for high ceilings, large rooms and big, open spaces.

If you have a space calling for a grand fan, here are a few of our favorites:

Oversized Fan - Lehr Ceiling Fan by Kichler

Lehr Ceiling Fan by Kichler: A dramatic design with 7 blades reaching 80 inches across. It’s also rated for wet locations, which means it’s good for big interior rooms OR an outdoor patio or deck space. The DC motor means the six speeds run at a fraction of the power consumption of typical fans.

Oversized fans - Slipstream XXL by Minka Aire Fans

Slipstream XXL Ceiling Fan by Minka Aire Fans: The blades stretch a whopping 7 feet across. It’s wet-rated for outdoor use, so would be ideal for moving air on a big deck, patio or gazebo. It’s also runs on a DC motor, so the extreme airflow is extremely energy efficient as well.

Oversized fans - Artemis XL5 by Minka Aire Fans

Artemis XL5 Ceiling Fan by Minka Aire Fans: The big brother of the much-loved Artemis Ceiling Fan, this reiteration features a wide 62-inch blade span and DC motor. You’ll know its part of the Artemis family by the five signature “flying vanes” (blades) that artfully wrap around the center.

Oversized fan: Dragonfly Patio Ceiling Fan by Quorum

Dragonfly Patio Ceiling Fan by Quorum: Stagnant summer air got ya down? Enter the Dragonfly, with water resistant canvas blades to add a little summer breeze to your covered outdoor area.

Oversized fans - Odyn Ceiling Fan by Fanimation

Odyn Ceiling Fan by Fanimation: Big in diameter, but small in height. While Odyn’s arms stretch a big 84 inches across, the overall height of the fan is just under a foot and a half. A powerful DC motor uses minimal electricity and if needed, an energy-saving LED provides overhead light.

As they say: Go big or go home.
