Mazon Brushed Nickel Ceiling Fan
This brushed nickel ceiling fan has a sleek look and is compact, which makes it a perfect model for a medium or small room. This 44-inch modern ceiling fan has a dimmable light and includes a three-speed reversible motor that can be controlled remotely.
“We have two of these—one in the living room and one in our bedroom and I love them! I wanted something attractive and not brown or white, but not terribly expensive, so this fit the bill. The remote is a great feature for a fan. It looks amazing and does its job,” said one Amazon buyer.
Home Decorators Collection LED Ceiling Fan
This ceiling fan has a frosted-opal, twist-on glass light cover, an LED light and a semi-reflective black finish to give it a modern, industrial look, perfect for any room of your home. Users will enjoy controlling the three-speed fan with the ease of a remote.
“The fans were easy to put up by following the directions and the remote is a plus for where we put them,” said one buyer.

Looking for a ceiling fan that’s a bit different? When it comes to modern ceiling fans, this one is unique with its Bluetooth audio function so you can play your favorite songs from your smart device. It also features a light that can be switched to night mode with the click of the remote.
“We just put this up in my 12-year-old son’s room and it’s the coolest thing ever. Multiple lighting options from super low to super bright. The different colors are fun and he is enjoying playing his favorite music from the built in speaker. The retractable fan is clever and no longer an eyesore. Super quiet fan and excellent wind,” said one buyer.
Noiseless Ceiling Fan
This 52-inch bright white ceiling fan has a modern, sleek look. It comes with a noiseless, six-speed reversible motor and A three-color temperature switch that allows you to choose the lighting color that works best in your home.
“I’m very pleased with this. I hung it myself—I’ve hung many fans over the years and this one was a little more involved but not difficult. The receiver creates an additional step but the functionality it creates is great! The fan blades are hollow plastic so it feels less sturdy than a typical fan, but it makes for a super quiet fan. This fan is sleek and very attractive—just as it appears in pics,” said one buyer.
Light Wave Ceiling Fan
Fans of mid-century furniture will find this 52-inch wooden ceiling fan is a great fit with their decor. Its sleek design moves air through any size room and it has an integrated LED light that is dimmable. It also has a three-speed remote so you can control the fan from anywhere in the room.
“Minka-Aire makes very nice quality fans, you’ll pay a bit more, but the function and aesthetics are worth it. I would absolutely buy this fan again,” said one buyer.
Chandelier Ceiling Fan
For a modern update on both a ceiling fan and a chandelier, this 27-inch model has three reversible blades for comfort, along with a remote and built-in light. Use it to add a modern look in your living room, home office, bedroom or dining room.
“I love this fan! It is exactly the compromise I needed because I hate the look of ceiling fans and still need circulating air in the Texas heat,” said one buyer.
Sleek Three-Blade Ceiling Fan
Sturdy and powerful, this sleek three-blade, silver fan can be controlled with a remote control and has a modern look that will fit well in any room of your home. It features two-way rotation so you can direct airflow up or down, and it comes with an LED light.
“I love the modern/sleek look of it and the quietness,” said one buyer. “It’s also very powerful. I live in Central Florida and this fan is saving me lots of cash in my electricity bill. I already ordered a second one.”
Wave Ceiling Fan
If you’re looking for something other than a traditional ceiling fan, buyers of the Wave noted they liked this modern-looking model not only because it’s stylish, but also for how well it moves air.
“It looks like art rather than just another ugly fan. Everyone notices it and loves the look and silent function,” noted one buyer. The 60-inch fan is available in three colors and a light kit can be added (sold separately).
Sleek Ceiling Fan
Sturdy, powerful, and sleek, this 92-inch ceiling fan with LED light has a modern, industrial look that will be a great addition in any room in your home. Once installed, use the remote to set your preferences. Since it is a 92-inch fan, make sure that you have enough space.

Use the remote to adjust and reverse air flow while also controlling the light.
