Small Ceiling Fans
Why We Love Small Ceiling Fans
Small ceiling fans are the perfect solution for smaller bedrooms, kitchen nooks and compact offices. Most small room ceiling fans mount flush or close to the ceiling, taking up little to no ceiling space while still serving a functional purpose. They also offer a much smaller blade span than what you are used to with common ceiling fan sizes, allowing their design to be that much more unique and save space. Take a look at these mini and small ceiling fan options to find something for your space.
Where Small Fans Work Best
A compact ceiling fan typically has a blade span (the blade diameter or sweep the fan is able to achieve) of less than 30". Considering most ceiling fan blade spans are 42" or larger, this selection of fans is ideal for unique spaces. Commonly found in urban apartments and smaller homes, these mini modern fans work well in kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms and smaller home offices. Compact ceiling fan designs like the Minka Aire Spacesaver can still provide a decorative and contemporary impact in a room while remaining small and out of the way on the ceiling. And if you want to kill two birds with one stone, look to a small ceiling fan with light like the Fanimation Beckwith. In any small space of your home, you are guaranteed to love the style and functionality a mini fan will offer.
A Small Ceiling Fan for Every Style
Whether it's needed for the breakfast nook or a home office, you're sure to find the perfect style of small ceiling fan here. While most ceiling fans at Lumens follow a contemporary aesthetic, here you will find styles ranging from modern, stainless steel designs to traditional ceiling fans with wooden blades. And caged ceiling fans make a bold statement in homes with classic elements of decor. Caged fans are smaller in nature, but will provide noticeable impact -- both in their unique design and in the amount of air they can help move.
Choosing the Best Small Ceiling Fans
The first thing to consider with a small-blade ceiling fan is, of course, its size. These ceiling fan options have a much smaller blade span than you are used to, but you will still want to measure your room to make sure the ceiling can properly accommodate one of these fans. Use our Ceiling Fan Size Guide to help you gauge the best small ceiling fan for your space. You'll also want to take note of the fan's CFM metrics to ensure it will help move the amount of air you are expecting it to.

Other Great Options
On the complete opposite end of the ceiling fan spectrum are large ceiling fans. Converse to the small fans in this assortment, large fans feature a much bigger blade sweep and can move a significant amount of air. If you need a fan for a large living room, a great room, a warehouse or even a big outdoor area, look to our selection of big ceiling fans. Finally, be sure to check out the Lumens Fan Buyer Guide. We offer helpful tips to understand how ceiling fans are measured, the energy-efficiency of a ceiling fan, where a modern ceiling fan works best and much more.
