From finding the right size and properly understanding concepts like blade span, airflow efficiency and the difference in the number of blades a fan has, there’s a lot to consider when choosing a ceiling fan. However, choosing the color and finish of a ceiling fan is easy if you opt for a neutral finish that fits in any color scheme. And with black being a popular neutral color that’s easy to introduce into any room, we decided to round up our five favorite black ceiling fans for you to look through:
1. Artemis Ceiling Fan
An obvious choice and a customer-favorite at Lumens, the Artemis Ceiling Fan by Minka Aire is often presented in a familiar distressed koa finish, but we’re loving it in the high-gloss black version. Both the fan motor and its blades are finished in black, as well as its matching downrod. Artemis also features an integrated halogen light kit with an opal glass shade.
2. Odyn Ceiling Fan
With the Odyn Ceiling Fan, Fanimation took the catchphrase “go big or go home” to a literal level. This massive, 84” ceiling fan is recommended for large living rooms, great rooms or outdoors under a covered deck or patio where it can help keep air fresh and cool. Its far-reaching blades are finished in matte black while the motor is brushed nickel. Odyn guarantees to make a statement and best of all, it’s an energy efficient choice thanks to its DC motor and integrated LED light kit.
3. Droid Ceiling Fan
The futuristic Droid Ceiling Fan from Wind River epitomizes everything we love in modern ceiling fan design. It features a sleek, 3-blade design with aerodynamically formed blades to increase its performance. Droid offers a 52” blade span (perfect for almost any area of the home) and is available in a noticeably stylish black finish. While it may not be the droid you were looking for, you’ll love introducing this fan to your home.
4. HFC 72 Ceiling Fan
Another large option we can’t help but notice is the HFC 72” Ceiling Fan. This design from Hunter Fans takes on an industrial aesthetic, but it is no stranger to contemporary residential spaces. It features an expansive 72” blade span resulting from 6 aluminum blades finished in matte black. The HFC design is also rated for damp spaces making it an ideal fan for large decks, patios or covered gazebos.
5. Torsion Ceiling Fan
We couldn’t mention our favorite ceiling fans without commenting on one of the leaders of contemporary fan design, Modern Fan Company. The Torsion Ceiling Fan from Modern Fan Co. is one of Ron Rezek’s most popular creations to date and it is fashioned to appear like a large wrench twisting on the head of a bolt. While we especially love the version of Torsion featuring black blades, it is an extremely versatile fan and is offered in multiple finishes and sizes spanning 42”, 52” and 62”.
