Standard Ceiling Fan 

A standard ceiling fan is the type of ceiling fan you are probably most familiar with. They are characterized by three or four blades and most likely they have a downrod, or they hang from the ceiling. Wood, metal, and plastic are the common materials for these guys.

Low-Profile Ceiling Fan or Flush Mount Fans 

Low-profile ceiling fans or flush mount fans are fans that are mounted right up against the ceiling with no downrod. These are designed for rooms with low ceilings and for those who don't particularly like the fans hanging down.

Dual-Motor Ceiling Fans 

One of the most versatile ceiling fans around, a dual-motor ceiling fan features two fans mounted to the same motor housing. Oftentimes, the fans can be adjusted to point to different areas in your room. These are popular commercial fans, as you get twice the moving air with just one mount, saving space in the process.

Outdoor Ceiling Fans 

Specifically made for the outdoors, outdoor ceiling fans offer a cool breeze while you are enjoying your outdoor living space. They are hardier than indoor ceiling fans and made to withstand the elements. They come in many different styles and finishes, too.
