Huntervention™ tour shows how ceiling fans transform spaces

­Simple updates like paint, pillows and a new ceiling fan can make a room look brand new, and Hunter Fan Company’s team of designers showed how it’s done during the 2017 Hunterventions tour.  Our designers helped five families with a room makeover to show how small updates can make a big difference.

We began in Virginia Beach where a family of five (plus two dogs) needed help updating their living room, a project they just hadn’t been able to get to in the five years that they’ve lived there.

Design Director Patrick O’Connell brightened up the living room by painting the walls a light color as well as painting the fireplace white. To give the room an updated rustic, coastal look, we used wood surfaces with rustic finishes, blue décor accents and topped it all off with the Hepburn modern ceiling fan in matte black. This chandelier inspired ceiling fan is unmistakenably a modern, updated version of traditional design, and O’Connell especially loves the pendant inspired globe light.

The Charlotte Huntervention was a special one for us: 16-year-old Gabriel has loved ceiling fans since he was a little kid. Designer Claire McRoberts was excited to give their wraparound porch a fresh farmhouse feel.

The covered porch was a big space so she used rugs to define smaller spaces among the big space. To give it a modern farmhouse design, McRoberts used elements like white rocking chairs with traditional spindle detailing with clean lines on the back and added four red Mill Valley farmhouse ceiling fans. The Mill Valley is inspired by vintage pendant lighting with a hooded light with an Edison LED light bulb.

In Nashville, Designer Alex Haggar refreshed a kid’s bedroom for Jeremy’s daughter, Keylee. Their home was flooded in 2011, and the money Jeremy wanted to spend on Keylee’s room went to replacing the first floor’s flooring instead.

Alex updated the storage Keylee keeps her toys and dress closes in to be more elevated, modern and something she could grow up with through the years. He chose the Cranbrook mid-century modern ceiling fan in mint to add a subtle pop of color; the low profile ceiling fan tucks higher into the ceiling to optimize space while still providing quality and efficient airflow.

O’Connell met newlyweds Hayley and Hensley in Atlanta to update the master bedroom in their first home together. He wanted to blend their eclectic style with modern décor, so he decided on a bohemian-modern design, utilizing light woods, natural woven textiles and plenty of plants.

Hayley and Hensley live in an older home with small rooms. O’Connell selected the Aker, a small ceiling fan with mid-century design that would made their bedroom look bigger but still grand.

Our final Huntervention of 2017 took place in Dallas where McRoberts gave the Larmer family’s outdated living room an updated, modern look. Painting the brick fireplace and adding new décor gave the room a modern look. McRoberts also arranged the furniture to take advantage of the large space and be conscientious of the highly trafficked room.

Susan Larmer loves modern glam style while her husband Rick Larmer loves technology, so McRoberts chose the Symphony smart home ceiling fan in one of the new finishes. The modern design complemented the look of the room while the technology allows the family to control the ceiling fan with either the pre-installed remote, their cell phone or with Amazon Alexa.

They call him The Fan Man

Eric Laird isn’t an ordinary 12 year old boy. When he was just 2 ½ years old, Eric was diagnosed with autism. As a baby, he loved watching ceiling fans spin.


Heads up. The ceiling is back.

The Sistine Chapel. The Capitol Rotunda. What can we say? People used to appreciate a good ceiling.

At Hunter, we never forgot about the ceiling—in fact, we haven’t stopped thinking about it since we invented the ceiling fan back in 1886. So we’re glad there’s a ceiling fan renaissance happening.

Everyone from interior designers to first-time homeowners are getting savvy to the importance (and effortlessness) of having a quality fan and the impact it can have on your entire living space.

Take your room by the reins.

We like to think of the fan as the crown jewel of the ceiling. But it’s not just about aesthetics.

Whether you’re going for a showstopping centerpiece or a chameleon that blends right in, a ceiling fan changes your environment. You want to make sure it’s changing it for the better. Quiet, wobble-free and fresh designs — the quality and craftsmanship of a Hunter ceiling fan puts you in control of your environment, allowing you to create the exact look and feel you want in every room, indoors and outdoors.

A mere appliance? Think again.

Chances are there isn’t a lot going on up there on your ceiling—and that’s okay. But that doesn’t mean it just gets to stare blankly down at you, doing nothing for your space.

The right ceiling fan is an easy way for you to put your ceiling to work for you, quietly and powerfully moving the air. So much more than an appliance or fixture, a Hunter fan combines effortless functionality with timeless design to transform the look and feel of your living space.

What does that really mean for you? Breakthrough technologies that fit your lifestyle and your budget, plus style choices that will complete the personality and décor of every room perfectly. It’s all about innovative solutions that improve your quality of life in small ways—but ways that matter.

It’s time to fall in love with your ceiling again—or for the first time. Welcome to Hunter.
