A hugger fan is simply another name for a low-profile or flush-mount ceiling fan. These ceiling fans are mounted directly to your ceiling without a downrod. They are perfect for rooms that have an eight-foot tall ceiling or less as they don't hang down like other ceiling fans.


Wall-Mounted Fans

Wall-mounted fans are those types of fans that can be mounted to the wall. These fans are popular for those who have small spaces since wall-mounted fans take up no floor space. They are also convenient for those who have small children and don't want to worry about them being around fans.


Contemporary Fans

Contemporary or modern fans are characterized by a sleek look that often features metal finishes and curved fan blades. This type of fan will match any home decor and can instantly offer an updated look to your home.


Traditional Fans

Traditional fans are often made from wood and feature the standard five blades with a single center light in the center for those who choose ceiling fans with lights. Traditional fans bring a classic look to any space, as well as adding in many benefits, such as ambiance, comfort, and lighting.
