What is the difference between Mission style ceiling fans and Craftsman style ceiling fans?
The growing popularity of Arts and Crafts style in home decor has lead ceiling fan manufactures to produce several mission style ceiling fans and craftsman style ceiling fans specifically for this application. Mission style and Craftsman style are somewhat synonymous and can both be classified as Arts and Crafts. Mission style fans may have some sort of geometric detail or tiffany like light fixture, while the Craftsman style ceiling fans have more of a hand crafted look with features such as rivets or mica in their design. Ether way, both styles can be used in an Arts and Crafts style room setting.

Although the EPA now requires fan manufacturers to publish the CFM ratings of their fans, there is no standardized scientific method of determining what size and CFM fan is best for any given application. A few quick searches and you will find that each ceiling fan manufacturer interprets this differently. So we created our own size and CFM recommendation chart to give you an idea what we recommend for "typical" applications. We produced this chart based on over 20 years of experience dealing with ceiling fans and the people who we've sold them to. For the most part, this chart will suffice. If you have low ceilings, you can fudge a little on the CFM and use a fan in the lesser range of the room size. If you have high ceilings, you need more CFM and a fan closer to the larger size of the chart. In most cases, the more the CFM the better and the higher the quality score the better!
