No matter what beautiful space you see on Instagram or magazines or coffee table books, it doesn’t look like that in real life. On any given real day, I’m sure the space has dirty laundry on the floor, cobwebs lingering in the corner, or even those beautiful throw pillows piled on the side chair. Rooms are meant to be lived in– not just photographed. And while I love my cozy bedroom, there is an ever present fixture you don’t see in the pictures: my cheap purple box fan. I can’t sleep without a fan, but I hate that I’m sacrificing style which sent me on a mission to find 8 stylish pedestal fans. And there are plenty to choose from!
Eight Stylish Alternatives To Ugly Box Fans
Almost all of these can be found on Amazon so make sure you snatch one up on Amazon Prime Day this week! So long ugly box fans & hello stylish function!
Hunter Retro 16″ Tripod Pedestal Fan
I want a fan for the white noise at night without having to put it away during the day. Pedestal fans can offer style with the function I need, so I focused solely on pedestal fans. I have loved Hunter ceilings fans, and I love the 16″ size & retro feel of this fan.
Fanimation Arden Pedestal Fan
I’m primarily wanting to avoid plastic fans as I want the fan to have a quality look to it, and well, plastic doesn’t scream quality. The Fanimation Arden Pedestal fan is definitely one of my favorites because of it’s industrial look!
Vornado VFAN Vintage Pedestal
A true vintage throwback is the Vornado VFAN all-metal pedestal fan. This one comes in fun, charming colors. It definitely brings style to the space, and a one-of-a-kind pedestal fan!
Star Fans 16″ Tripod Fan
One of the most expensive options, but also some of the best quality, is the Star Fans 16″ Tripod Fan. Again, with an industrial, surveyor tripod style, I love the design of it! I don’t know if I love the design enough to swallow the price tag, but it’s certainly one of my favs!
Costway 12″ Pedestal Fan
One of the most unique pedestal fans is the Costway 12″ pedestal fan. This smaller pedestal fan only comes in one finish, but offers numerous speeds & adjustments. This pedestal fan also comes with a remote. It’s one of the best options for price.
DecoBreeze 16″ Lafayette Pedestal Fan
A more traditional design, the DecoBreeze Lafayette is heavier- both in weight & style. It has a singular base rather than a tripod. The all metal finish comes in various finishes. It’s moderately priced and doesn’t break the bank!
Quorum 15″ Mariana Fan
Absolutely my favorite is the Quorum Mariana stylish pedestal fan; however, it’s also the most expense– isn’t that how it usually goes? I love the style- minimalist, on-trend, and perfect color & quality. It comes in two finishes, but it might be something you want to keep on eye on to score on sale!
Dyson Air Multiplier Pedestal Fan
Without a doubt, the Dyson Air Multiplier is the most modern, Jetson-era style fan, but it comes from the most trusted brand: Dyson. Everything they make is amazing quality, and while this is not your average pedestal fan. With multiple options, the price point seems justified for the fan. The minimalist design may not fit well in every space, but I think, for some, that might be worth the sacrifice!
