Why are ceiling fans so ugly?

Don't worry, I'm not here to tell you to remove your ceiling fans from every room.  Do you remember the show Trading Spaces on TLC? I swear every single room they made over, a ceiling fan would be removed and the owners would freak during the reveal.

Honestly, I am a fan of the fan. They are practical, money savers (skip turning on the AC, just get the fan going), and refreshing.  I just hate the way they look.  And I feel like the better looking fans always cost a freaking fortune.

Don't laugh (okay....go ahead and laugh). Here are two of the fans currently residing in our home.


Gross....
I am off to the inter-web to find good looking fans that don't injure your wallet. Here is what I found!

Okay, just kidding. That thing is nasty. But I think the other ones I found were pretty darn good.


Do you guys have any sources for good looking ceiling fans?


Have any lovely ceiling fans in your home that you would like to discuss? :)

I love the Big Sky one. I think fan companies need some new designers. LOL
