Great ceiling fans for small bedrooms
Medium sized ceiling fans come in sizes from 42 inches to 48 inches and are perfect for smaller rooms such as kids rooms, quest bedrooms, and larger bathrooms. For rooms that are less than 10 x 10 or less, this is a good sized ceiling fan. However, keep in mind that most 42 inch ceiling fans will have smaller motors with a flatter blade pitch, so they may not move as much air as a standard sized fan. If you are unsure if a 42 inch or 48 inch sized fan is too small for your room, or you just want to make sure you get enough air movement, it is not wrong to use a 50 inch or 52 inch sized fan in a 10 x 10 room providing you choose a fan that blends in with the ceiling. Particularly if the room you are installing the ceiling fan in is open to an ajoining room. Read more about Choosing the Correct Size Fan on our ceiling fan sizes page.

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!
