The best ceiling fans for bedroom use don’t need to move as much air as fans placed in other parts of the house. This is because it takes less air movement to keep you cool if you’re sleeping (and relatively still) compared to when you’re awake and moving about. A bedroom ceiling fan needs to operate effectively on its lower speeds and operate reasonably quietly. Here’s our favourite fans for bedrooms.
This fan is extremely popular for bedrooms. On low speeds, this fan offers gentle and effective air movement. This is just enough to keep you cool on a warm night, but not so much that you start to freeze. For customers who wish to combine a fan and light, the Eco Silent is also available with an LED.
The Polar DC Ceiling fan spins quite gently on its lowest speed where it rotates just 75 times per minute. This is one of the first DC fans with a compatible wall control accessory (optional extra), and as a bonus, the receiver can pair with both the wall control and remote, allowing you to switch between the two controls.
Both of the Bondi’s sizes (48″ and 52″) work well in bedrooms and can be adapted to remote control if you wish. The model with light allows you to select from cool, natural or warm light. This function allows you to create your optimal environment for sleeping.
If you’re wanting a fan for your bedroom, the Whisper DC is worth taking a look at! It’s modern, with three gentle-shaped blades and a powerful DC motor to keep you cool in silence. If you love to fine-tune the ambience, the Whisper with light features dimming and CCT control with a handy remote. Plus, if you’re limited in ceiling space, there’s even a Low Profile design with a drop of only 180mm from the ceiling to the blade.
The Summer DC Fan range is a must-have; it has a modern design and superb functionality, giving you fantastic value for your money! You can have either the 48″ or 52″ model which is a very common bedroom size. It has an amazing LED panel which you can replace yourself and a handy remote control is included! A great price point for such top quality!
The Studio DC ceiling fan is a CHOICE recommended and is the perfect addition to any bedroom decoration style as it is subtle yet has a modern design. You can control the atmosphere of your sleeping atmosphere with the LED panel featuring a CCT Function & dimming capabilities – so you can adjust it to your own personal comfort. Plus, it’s perfect for those with lower-than-average ceilings as it has a low-profile design. Studio’s airflow output and range are perfect for use in the bedroom; providing you with the right amount of comfort.
If your bedroom deserves a centrepiece, the Cabarita might just be it. This is a relatively new fan, but fans with similar airflow specifications are proving very popular for bedroom use. It’s also a great choice if you want to match the bedrooms with other areas because while this fan is capable of high airflow, on its slower speeds it provides air movement which suits sleeping.
No matter how big the bedroom is, there’s a Spyda that will fit. The range includes sizes from 36″ right through to 62″, but for bedrooms we suggest starting by looking at the 36″ and 50″ options. These sizes allow you to concentrate air circulation over a smaller area like a bed. These fans can also be adapted to remote, so you can operate them without getting out of bed.
The Surf also makes a fan-tastic feature in bedrooms with its modern three-blade design. The fan comes with a remote control and 6 selectable speeds. You can choose either a model with or without a dimmable LED light with 3 different sizes and 4 colourways to experience excellent cooling effects on summer nights.
Another subtle option for bedrooms in the Bulimba Ceiling Fan. Its AC motor gives the user three speed options. Although it moves a little more air on low speed than some of the other fans on this list, it still makes a good choice for bedrooms if you’re looking for an affordable and effective model.
