4 Best Ceiling Fans for Small Rooms
Are you looking for a way to cool a hot, compact home office? Do you need to improve the air circulation in a smaller kitchen or breakfast nook? Don’t allow small spaces to keep you from being cool and comfortable in every room in your home. Small ceiling fans are the perfect solution for cooling undersized living rooms, hallways, closets and kitchens, as well as small bedrooms, home offices and rooms with low-profile ceilings. They can also be used to cool small outdoor living spaces, such as patios, front porches and covered decks—as long as the fan you choose can be used in areas where exposure to the elements is unavoidable.
Here are four ceiling fans that are perfect for the small rooms in your home.
For small bedrooms and office spaces
The Hunter Watson 34-inch indoor ceiling fan is just one of the many options available for small bedrooms and home offices. Don’t let its small size fool you—this ceiling fan actually packs quite the punch! Five blades create an impressive amount of air movement while remaining seamless and quiet. The petal-shaped fan blades can turn any room into an elegant, contemporary space. This fan is available in snow white, new bronze and brushed nickel and three different blade finishes.
For hallways and closets

The Kichler 30-inch Canfield ceiling fan is a great option for cooling small kitchens, dining areas and breakfast nooks. It is available with or without light fixtures and can even be used outdoors in a covered area. This fan is available in a variety of different finishes to complement your space.
For outdoor spaces
Don’t forget about the outdoors! Adding an outdoor ceiling fan to a small patio, covered deck, screened-in porch or other outdoor room might seem unusual, but this is actually incredibly beneficial. Not only will a ceiling fan keep your outdoor space cool by helping to improve air circulation, but it can also help keep bugs away.
The Emerson Tilo ceiling fan with three 30-inch blades is one excellent option to consider for your small outdoor space. This fan is available with or without lighting options and comes in a variety of finishes, including brushed steel, gloss white and oil-rubbed bronze. It is UL listed for Outdoor Damp Locations, which means it can be used in covered areas where there may be moisture, but should not be directly exposed to rain. This fan is the perfect addition to any room, indoor or out.
Tips for choosing a ceiling fan
The first thing to consider when choosing a ceiling fan for any room is its size. It’s important to take measurements of your room beforehand to ensure there is enough ceiling space to accommodate a ceiling fan. Small ceiling fans have a much smaller blade than standard-sized ceiling fans. Our small fans feature blade spans that range between 24 and 36 inches, which are ideal for rooms that are about 6’x6’ in size. Keep in mind that building codes require that ceiling fans in residential homes must be installed at least seven feet away from the floor. If your ceiling is eight feet or higher, your fan may require a downrod. Most small fans are designed to mount close to the ceiling so that little space is taken up while still keeping the rooms cool.
Choosing a small ceiling fan doesn’t mean compromising style and performance. Our small fans carry all the same features and benefits of standard-sized ceiling fans. You can choose ceiling fans in a variety of styles—from modern to rustic—and can select from black, bronze, brass, copper, white and other finishes that complement your home’s decor.
