Large Ceiling Fans

Big spaces need large ceiling fans if you want to get any real sense of air movement and these big fans can take care of that. If you want to be counted as a large ceiling fan, you will need a blade span (diameter) of at least 52 inches (over 4 feet) or more. Truly large ceiling fan designs get into the 6-foot and even 7-foot range and that means all the more refreshing air circulation for everyone. Whether in a great room or a large industrial space, this selection of ceiling fans will suit your needs.

Where Large Ceiling Fans Work Best

Large and tall rooms like the living room or great room will benefit most from this style of ceiling fan. A ceiling size of 15-feet by 15-feet is a good place to start, especially for ceilings 10-feet high or higher. However, this is not to say a standard 8-foot ceiling won't benefit from the use of a large ceiling fan, as there are options that can easily accommodate that height. Deck and patio spaces are also perfect for large outdoor ceiling fans like the Minka Aire Slipstream or the Fanimation Odyn. Either of these large fan options allow you to tame a sweltering day with your own ready-made breeze. And in warehouses, gymnasiums or restaurants with high ceilings, you will love the airflow provided by large commercial ceiling fans.

A Large Ceiling Fan for Every Style

Whether used as a great room ceiling fan or a fan to move a lot of air on the patio, you are guaranteed to find a design that fits your existing decor. Sleek, modern designs from Minka Aire fit well in contemporary living rooms and great rooms, while Kichler fans fit spaces with more traditional and transitional decor. Outside, look to a damp or wet rated large fan from Emerson Fans and if you love energy efficiency in your home, look to any of the large fan options that are powered with a DC motor or those that use an integrated LED light kit.

Choosing the Right Large Ceiling Fan Size

Size matters when it comes to choosing a ceiling fan and this selection of huge ceiling fans span a wide variety of fan blade diameters. To choose the best ceiling fan for your large room, you will want to review the number of blades a fan has and its fan blade span (diameter). Most big ceiling fan options are available with blade spans ranging from 52" to over 60" and there are some available that exceed a 65" blade span.

Other Great Options

If your outdoor space isn't quite large enough to fit a ceiling fan with a 7-foot blade span, there are plenty of more petite options included in the assortment of outdoor ceiling fans. Outdoor ceiling fans are also damp or wet rated, ensuring safe use where the presence of water is inevitable. Indoors, designs this large can dominate a room's overhead space, limited your use of hanging ceiling lighting. If you don't choose a large ceiling fan with lights, try pairing the fan with wall sconces or table lamps and floor lamps. Recessed lighting can help in this regard as well, especially if you need more direct, task-oriented illumination.
