The Traditional Ceiling Fan Category has the widest variety of all ceiling fan styles.
What one would consider to be a traditional style ceiling fan is certainly up for interpretation. This category is pretty much a catch-all for ceiling fans that do not have a definative style. For the most part, traditional ceiling fans are pretty much what ceiling fans have looked like for over 100 years...up until about 10 years ago. Although many of the original traditional style ceiling fans might have ornate details in their design, we opted to put the fancy traditional style fans in their own category of Victorian/Fancy. We reserved the simpler less detailed models for this page. For the most part, the traditional style ceiling fans will have 4 or 5 blades, a simple non-descript body style, and the ability to add a single light fixture, or a 4 or 5 arm light fixture with glass shades.

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!
