Answer a few quick questions and we’ll help match you with the right ceiling fan!
What type of airflow do you prefer from your ceiling fan?
On high speed, what is the style of airflow (cooling) you typically enjoy from ceiling fans?
All of our ceiling fans have a Breeze (wind chill) rating to help illustrate the type of cooling you can expect from the fan directly below it on high speed – this ranges from Gentle to Fast.
A ceiling fan that is more towards the Gentle end will provide gentle, relaxing, and extremely quiet airflow directly below the fan. Conversely, a ceiling fan that is towards the Fast end will provide high-velocity airflow directly below the fan, ideal for very hot and humid climates or if you prefer strong airflow.
It is important to remember that you can always run a high performance ceiling fan on lower speeds for more energy-efficient cooling.
GentleGentle airflow will provide a pleasant, relaxing flow of air but will not be strong enough to blow away decorations, napkins, etc. Typically suited for dining areas and bedrooms where quiet, gentle airflow is preferred.
ModerateA moderate breeze is typically sufficient for dry and mild climates. For many people, this level of airflow output is preferred for small to medium bedrooms and is an acceptable balance between wind chill and noise output.
FastModels with a fast breeze rating will provide significant airflow and cooling directly below the ceiling fan. Recommended for very humid and hot climates, customers that prefer strong airflow and for outdoor ceiling fans.
No preferenceYour results won’t factor ceiling fan performance into the equation. All our fans include Fan Performance Indicators to help you make this decision later.
What size room do you need your fan for?
Choose the closest match to your room size. There’s no ‘right’ size for a space and you typically have a bit of wiggle room in your choice.
Your ceiling fan size is a personal preference. You should consider how your ceiling fan will appear in your space (e.g. bolder, high contrast finishes will dominate a space more than lighter more subtle finishes).
Always ensure there is at least 50cm between the tips of your fan’s blades and any wall. For very large areas, its often better to install multiple smaller fans than one large fan.
2.8m x 2.8mFor very small rooms we recommend either 45″ or smaller models.
3m x 3mFor small rooms we recommend 48″ or smaller models..
3.5m x 3.5mFor average size rooms we recommend between 44″ and 52″ models.
3.8m x 3.8mFor above average rooms we recommend 48″ to 56″ models.
4.5m x 4.5mFor large rooms we recommend 52″ to 60″ models.
5m x 5mFor very large rooms we recommend 56″ and larger models.
HVLSFor very large spaces our High Volume Low Speed (HVLS) ceiling fans may be suited.
OtherIf your room doesn’t fall into one of these categories or you aren’t sure, choose this option.
What finish (colour) would you like?
Are you looking for a particular finish of ceiling fan to match your home decor? Choose an option below and we will help highlight the closest matches. Note: All selections will include timber-finish blades where available.
When choosing the right finish and style for your ceiling fan, decide if you want a subtle addition or a statement piece. For a subtle design, choose a ceiling fan that blends in to your space by matching the colours in your room. Make a statement in your space by adding a bold contrast to your interior colour scheme.
White and silver ceiling fans are often a safe choice for anyone wanting their ceiling fan to disappear into the space, as they better blend with white and cream interior colour schemes. Choosing an all-white ceiling fan that matches your style will provide the benefits of functional cooling without distracting from your room’s aesthetics.
Since most interiors are typically painted with neutral colours such as whites and creams, darker finished ceiling fans such as black and bronze provide a stark and bold contrast that will draw the eye.
WhiteBlending your white ceiling fan into a white ceiling makes for an unobtrusive, crisp and minimal look.
BlackBlack ceiling fans provide a stark, bold contrast to most interior colour schemes and ties in with other fixtures and fittings.
SilverSilver ceiling fans provide a modern design that can tie in with other silver fixtures in your space.
DesignerWe’ll include designer finishes such as Oil-rubbed Bronze, Satin Brass, and Graphite.

Where will your ceiling fan be installed?
Select a location to help narrow down models that include features and materials suitable for your space.
All of our ceiling fans are suitable for indoor spaces as long as they meet the room’s size requirements.
Most of our ceiling fans can be installed in outdoor, undercover settings where they will not be exposed directly to rain. Look for ceiling fans that have powder-coated finishes and use polymer blades (high-grade ABS plastic) to make sure your fan can resist the elements. Avoid plated finishes (such as Brushed Nickel) and normal steel fans.
For high-salt environments, materials like aluminium, high-grade plastic (polymer), and 316 marine grade stainless steel are good choices to make when considering installing a fan in a coastal location.
IndoorsThere aren’t really any limitations on which ceiling fan you can use for an indoor space.
Outdoors (undercover)Ceiling fans installed outdoors should be crafted from certain materials and be able to resist outdoor conditions.
CoastalLucky enough to live near the ocean? Your ceiling fan will need to be manufactured from stainless steel or polymer (plastic) in order to resist the harsh outdoor conditions.
Not sureWe won’t filter your results based on this metric.
How high is your ceiling where the fan will be installed?
Depending on your ceiling height, some of our fans may not be suitable. Please choose the closest match.
In order to meet safety regulations, the blades on your ceiling fan must always be at least 2.1m from the floor. Many of our fans are designed to meet this requirement on 2.4m ceilings.
For very high ceilings, we recommend trying to hang your ceiling fan so that the blades are between 2.4m and 2.7m from the floor.
Low (2.4m)We will filter our ceiling fans that don’t meet Australian Safety Standards for low (2.4m) ceilings which require your fan blades to be at least 2.1m from the floor.
Standard (2.7m)For ceiling heights between 2.5m and 3.0m you will generally be able to use most ceiling fans without requiring a downrod accessory.
High (Above 3m)For ceiling heights between 3.0m and 4.0m we typically recommend installing a downrod accessory to bring your ceiling fan blades to the optimal height of 2.4m to 2.7m from the floor.
Very High (Above 4m)For ceiling heights above 4.0m you will require a long downrod to bring your ceiling fan blades closer to the floor. Depending on the room and fan chosen, it may be ideal for your ceiling fan to hang higher in the air than normal.
Not sureNot sure on your ceiling height? Choose this option.
What sort of slope will your fan be installed on?
Before purchasing your new ceiling fan, it is important to check that it will be able to support your ceiling angle.
The majority of our ceiling fans support up to moderate slopes, and some of our fans have an accessory available for very high slopes.
In some cases, you can increase the angle the fan will support by installing the remote receiver in the ceiling cavity above the fan, or by adding a sloped ceiling kit accessory. Chat with our team to be sure.
FlatAll of our ceiling fans support flat ceiling installation so you can freely choose from our range.
Gentle (Up to 10°)Nearly all of our models support gentle slopes (although there are a few exclusions).
Moderate (10° to 15°)Some of our DC ceiling fans do not support ceiling slopes above 10 degrees.
Steep (15° to 20°)Many of our DC ceiling fans do not support slopes above 15 degrees.
Very Steep (Over 20°)Many ceiling fans with remote controls struggle to support slopes over 20 degrees without a sloped ceiling kit accessory.
Not sureIf you aren’t sure of your ceiling slope choose this option. This is an important consideration and should be checked before purchasing.
Do you need your ceiling fan to include a light or no light?
Let us know if you need your ceiling fan to include a light and we will help highlight the best matches.
For small spaces it is often required to have a light on your ceiling fan as the room doesn’t allow for additional light sources.
Lights that are included in ceiling fans are commonly a great source of additional illumination, but should not be relied on as the only source of light for larger areas.
How would you like to control your ceiling fan?
All of our AC ceiling fans include wall controls as standard or you can optionally add a remote control. Our DC ceiling fans include remote controls only.
Wall Controls are a time-tested and reliable way to control your ceiling fans with the added benefit of not being lost – great for kids bedrooms or rental properties.
Remote Controls offer added convenience and often include additional functions – all remote controls include wall holder brackets.
Wall ControlWall Controls are included with all of our AC ceiling fans and are a robust and reliable method of controlling your ceiling fan.
Remote Control (Included)We’ll highlight ceiling fans that have a remote control included as standard.
Remote Control (Accessory or Included)We’ll highlight ceiling fans that either include remote controls or have an accessory option that can be purchased with the fan.
Either (no preference)We will show you ceiling fans with all control options available.
