Don’t despair if you’re trying to find a ceiling fan for your low ceiling. There are plenty of good quality fans out there, in a whole array of colours, styles and sizes! This is true even of hugger/low-profile models. There are even low profile fans with lights if that’s what you need.

Please note: If you’re in Australia, you should allow 2.1 metres between the ceiling fan’s blade and the floor, so make sure you measure before you buy.


1. Studio

“The feature packed low profile DC fan with Smart Technology”

The Studio fan really is the complete package for a bedroom! Available in a 48″ overall diameter size with or without light the fan is sized perfectly for a bedroom, and the 210mm ceiling to blade drop make the fan well suited to bedrooms with slightly lower than average ceilings, or if you want to achieve the popular ‘hugger’ look.

Also available is a hardwired wall control model (without light only). If you opt for the fan with light you will receive an energy efficient LED light that offers CCT technology as well as being dimmable. The complete bedroom fan!
