The top 10 Best Living Room ceiling fans - Update in Progress September 2021

Due to popular demand we have added our top 10 picks for a Living room to our ceiling fan awards. But what makes a good living room ceiling fan? Generally for a living room you would want a ceiling fan that is either a medium to large size, as well as one that offers reasonably strong airflow on the higher speeds. Within our top 10 picks we have a good range of fans, from statement pieces that will stand out to more subtle designs. View our top 10 choices below.

#1 - ORIGIN DC

"A beautiful curved design that offers excellent airflow"

Modern design Light adaptable High Airflow 3 colour options CHOICE recommended

The Origin by Fanco is a wonderfully elegant addition to any living room. Featuring a large 56" overall diameter the fan really makes a statement with the flowing blade design that merge gracefully into the motor. The fan is powered by a high quality DC motor, which not only provides excellent airflow at 13,446 m3/hr on the highest speed, but also unrivalled energy efficiency. The fan consumes only 2w on the lowest speed, this is definitely one of the lowest on any fan in the market today. It means your Origin can help produce a gentle breeze with a negligible impact on your power bills! The fan has been highly recommended by CHOICE magazine as a top pick but also specifically as a living room fan for these reasons. Finally we love the fact that the fan is light adaptable, with the small LED panel replacing the base of the motor. Creating one of the most natural looking ceiling fans with LED light.
