2020 Designer's top picks for outdoor | Hunter Fan

Designers’ top picks outdoor fans for 2020

  • Anna Ham

From outdoor ceiling fans that are rain and salt air resistant to fans that reimagine farmhouse style, our design team is excited about the lineup of our 2020 outdoor ceiling fans. They spend hours crafting designs for every style, whether you want a modern design with a pop of color or a classic white fan. During the design process, they collaborate with our engineers to add technology to keep you cool and your fan functioning for years to come. We’re sharing few of our designer favorites for outdoor spaces this year!

Havoc WeatherMax® outdoor ceiling fan

Our designers love the way this fan’s modern design matches the modern technology inside. The Havoc outdoor fan features our WeatherMax technology, meaning it won’t droop or corrode when exposed to rain or salt air. It also comes with our SureSpeed® Guarantee for optimized, high-speed cooling. Soft, curved lines on the blades are reminiscent of Scandinavian furniture that gives it a transitional and versitle look. The clean lines and balanced design make this fan easily adaptable in any style space – from modern to coastal decor.

Favorite spot to place it: A modern cabin or beach home

The Hunter Original ceiling fan

This is the original fan design. The timeless design of the Hunter Original fan makes it applicable in a variety of spaces, from Americana inspired porches like at our Huntervention with Southern Living to farmhouse style living rooms. “If you have a great traditional space with lanterns and other nostalgic accents, this really is the best fan for that space,” said Design Director Patrick O’Connell. Along with a timeless style, the Original ceiling fan features our SureSpeed Guarantee for optimized cooling power. Like your favorite t-shirt, this is a fan design you’ll want in every color!

Favorite spot to place it: It’s so versatile! On a traditional style porch or modern farmhouse patio

Kennicott modern outdoor ceiling fan

Dusty Green is a finish our designers are currently obsessing over, and they love how it looks on the Kennicott modern outdoor fan. This soft green finish acts as a pseudo neutral: A pop of color in your space without being overpowering. The soft lines on this modern fan give it a friendlier form that looks great in Scandinavian modern or casual mid-century modern style outdoor spaces. With such a unique color, SureSpeed technology, and modern design, this fan is a functional and stylish addition to your patio that won’t bust your budget!

Favorite spot to place it: In a modern patio

Mill Valley farmhouse ceiling fan

The barn-style inspired open hood light, the rustic wood blades, the Edison LED light – designers (and our fellow Instagrammers) can’t get enough of the Mill Valley fan. This fan sets the standard for farmhouse ceiling fan style! The Matte Black and Matte Silver finishes complement other hardware and finishes in farmhouse style, but our designers love how the Barn Red and Indigo Blue add curb appeal. Use the Barn Red finish for a bold pop of color that enhances the Americana feel of your porch like it did at this Huntervention. Or take a cue from our Dorothy Day House Huntervention and use the Indigo Blue for a subtle pop of color. With on-trend colors and an unmistakable profile, the Mill Valley fan is the made for your porch­ – and beyond.
