Best Caged Ceiling Fans

Whether you have a modern or traditional décor, a caged ceiling fan will turn heads for sure! Enclosed ceiling fans act as a statement piece in your area, while also providing you with a cooling breeze so you get the best of both worlds.

These ceiling fans are great because they come in many different designs that are unique, especially in a kitchen, bedroom, and covered patios or even in rooms where the ceiling height is very low. We love how they give your area an upgraded look, whether you want a small, large, contemporary, or rustic caged ceiling fan because the possibilities are endless. You could opt for an enclosed ceiling fan that has a light, that way you can also use it as an illumination source and that takes it to the next level.

One of the most important reasons why we love caged fans except their style and functionality, is the fact that they are also known as ‘safe ceiling fan’ which works great if you have kids or pets that can come near the fan. You see how great this type of fan is? Everything about enclosed ceiling fans is a bonus, which is why we will always recommend them as one of the best type of fans for everyday use. Another type of caged fans is the fully enclosed caged fan so you can only see the blades or lights through the enclosed design, usually in a shape of a drum.

But choosing the best type of caged ceiling fan is not always easy because you have to take into consideration the size of your room, the interior or exterior décor, ceiling height and more, and that’s where we come to help. We have come up with a list of the 10 best caged ceiling fans, all of different sizes and designs to help you choose the one that best matches your preferences.

Fanimation FP8519BL Henry Fan

To start off in the right foot, this Fanimation Henry caged fan is a small but eye-catching fan that brings a contemporary feel in your room without too many details. We love the modern style and how that’s incorporated with your transitional home décor, while also keeping you cool.

Features: This 20-inch cage style comes with an 18W LED light kit for direct and ambient downlight. One of the best features of this fan is its adaptability because it works for slopped ceilings or you can turn this into a low-profile fan if your room has a low ceiling. It’s also damp-rated meaning you can easily use this in an outdoor covered area. Added to that contemporary design, the fan also works with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth (controls are sold separately), so there’s a lot to like about the Henry fan.

Design: If you asked for a caged fan with a sleek design, this is it. The black finish of the fan, the meshed cage, and the bright light in the middle make the perfect combination for any room. The blades are small in design but they provide enough cool air in the room and as a bonus, they’re guarded by the cage so no one can touch them. You can’t go wrong with this one because it’s great quality, looks amazing wherever you decide to put it and it’s worth every penny.

What we like:

  • Remote control is included to adjust settings
  • Damp-rated
  • Great for rooms with bunk beds
  • Quiet operation
  • Stylish and simple

What we don’t like:

Humboldt Bronze and Teak Industrial Farmhouse Cage Ceiling Fan

The Humboldt Industrial caged fan is that wow factor that you’re looking for. This is described as an industrial and farmhouse fan but we feel that it has an intricate design which easily blends in with a modern interior because it looks that good.

It includes 3 speeds, an LED light kit that saves energy and a remote control to operate the settings. The blades are quite small but don’t let them fool you because they circulate a great amount of airflow.

Design: Beauty and comfort within a single fan? Yes please! There are so many details that accentuate the metal mesh cage but we mostly love the oil-rubbed bronze finish and the burnished teak wood details that complement each other and the cage so well.

The Segue Modern Retro caged ceiling fan is our first pick when it comes to a unique and contemporary ceiling fan partly because of its finish and design, but also because it works exceptionally well.
