5 Easy Steps to Design Your Own Fan

Sometimes, out-of-the-box fans just don’t cut it. When you need something unique or want to invest in a one-of-a-kind fan that perfectly suits your style, creating a custom ceiling fan is the way to go. At Dan’s Fan City, you can design a fan as unique as you can imagine without ever leaving your couch. Our Design Your Fan tool walks you through the steps you need to create your dream fan, but if you’re wondering what each of those steps really takes, this is the guide for you. 

For a quick overview before you jump into the nitty-gritty details, check out the video below.

Selecting Your Ceiling Fan Motor 

The first step to customizing your ceiling fan is selecting a motor. There are many different motor types with varying styles, speed capabilities, and moisture ratings. Each motor type is detailed in our tool so you ensure you’re getting exactly what you need. Because style is such an important part of the custom ceiling fan equation, we have a variety of fan motor colors to choose from so you can perfectly accent your home and decor. 

Pick the Perfect Blade Finish

A unique blade with a finish that complements the overall design and aesthetic can really bring your custom fan to life. Depending on the model you’re customizing, you can choose from oak, maple, walnut, nickel plated blades, and some unique shades and finishes that really wow. 

Add a Light Kit to Your Fan

Need some additional lighting in your fan’s final destination? Adding a lighting kit at this step in the customization process will do the trick! Just like every step in our design process, we aim to provide you with a plethora of choices so you can create the fan of your wildest dreams. 

If you’re designing a fan with no need for additional lighting, it’s as easy as selecting “no lighting kit” and moving on to the next design step. 

Choose Your Fan Accessories

Whether you desire a flush mount or a longer downrod for your fan, our Design Your Fan feature lets you choose. 

They say accessories can make or break a great outfit, and the same can be true for your ceiling fan. If you’re looking for something other than the basic pull chain, we offer several mounted wall controls as well as handheld remote controls. No accessories needed? Just skip this step as well and proceed to the last step of the Design Your Fan process.

The Final Step: Review Your Custom Ceiling Fan Design

Finally, the moment has arrived. After selecting all the pieces of your dream fan, you get to see it come together. In the review stage of the design process, you’ll have the opportunity to download a photo of your custom fan for later reference and, if everything looks how you had hoped, add it to your shopping cart. 

Something not quite fitting like you thought it would? You can always go back and adjust any step in the design process until you reach your desired outcome. 

Your home is a unique expression of your individuality, and your ceiling fan should be too. When you order a custom fan from Dan’s Fan City, you can expect quality that will add value to your home for years to come. Find your dream fan and try our Design Your Fan tool today!
