When we moved into our home 5 years ago it was filled with 1990s ceiling fans (picture basic white with brass) upstairs and downstairs. When we buy something permanent for our home I research ALL of our options. I hire out for ceiling fan installs and know we will be looking at the fan for a long time—it is a long term investment! And it is a strong focal point in each room.
We live in North Carolina and the summers are HOT. So we definitely need a ceiling fan in most rooms. And it needs to have a light. We are also on a relatively small budget at under $250. With all of those parameters in mind, below is a list of 8 of my favorite fans with a modern rustic look! And scroll down to see the fans we picked and replaced in our office and bedrooms.

In 2018 we installed two Hunter Cranbrook Fans in our home (mint and black) in each of our kids’ bedrooms.

We replaced our dated white & gold brass fan with the Hunter Hepburn Fan in our master bedroom. It contrasts to our grey walls and cools the room well.

If you live in a warm climate, ceiling fans help keep the rooms cooler and the AC temperature can go a little warmer (saving your money!). I hope a few of these ceiling fans inspire you to find the right ceiling fan for your home. It is a relatively small investment to replace a ceiling fan and it will make a big difference in the appearance of a room.
