Affordable modern farmhouse ceiling fans are possible to find. You just have to know where to shop! Here’s an extensive list of budget friendly farmhouse ceiling fan options, including with lights, without lights and flush mounted fans.
I’ve been looking to update the old, builder grade fans in our home to match our farmhouse decor. While we’re lucky to have fans in most of the rooms in our home to increase air circulation, most of them are pretty hideous.
As most of you know, I absolutely LOVE window shopping and adding things to my list of things to buy next (in order of priority of course). One of those items is a new modern farmhouse ceiling fan for my bedroom, main living room, and my little boy’s rustic style bedroom. The first room we’ve been trying to update was the fan and lighting for our modern farmhouse family room.
While I was shopping online to replace these old ceiling fans, I’ve realized that there are so many places to look online, so it can be overwhelming for some people. Not only that, there are so many different options available.
Whether you are looking for a farmhouse style ceiling fan with a light, without a light, with a remote, one that’s galvanized, another that has that distressed look, I’m here to give you a list of my favorite sources as well as finds from around the internet.
Throughout the years, ceiling fans have had a track record of being better than they were in previous years and are now more gorgeous than ever. I can’t even say that they would ever go out of style because my husband needs them on at night for air circulation!
Before I do that, I want you to know what I classify as an affordable modern farmhouse ceiling fan. If I can find a beautiful and functional modern farmhouse ceiling fan for under $300, I consider that affordable. While it is a lot of money to be spending on a fan for every room, I know that if my hubby installs it for us, it will save money from the electrician having to install it!
I also wanted to show you how to find the right size for your ceiling fan before you fall in love with one of the options I share.
Choosing the Perfect Modern Farmhouse Ceiling Fan
What is the right size for a ceiling fan?
In general, ceiling fans should be mounted or installed at 8 feet from the floor to allow the best amount of airflow, have at least 10 inches of air space between the blades, and at least 18 inches from the walls.
Can a ceiling fan be flush mounted?
Yes, there are brands that definitely make flush mounted ceiling fans that are designed to move the same amoutn of air with a down road can move!

Affordable Sources to Find Modern Farmhouse Ceiling Fans
I’m pretty picky about the stores that I list because I want to share only the brands and stores that I would personally purchase from myself. I’m often asked where to find budget-friendly modern farmhouse ceiling fans that are unique and make a statement. There are so many beautiful options out there, you just need to know where to look.
Each of these links takes you directly to their product pages for modern farmhouse style ceiling fans that I know you’ll love!
Lowes. Lowes is one of the first places I look because they do have an emphasis on the aesthetics as well as the DIY needs of homeowners. Lowes has an amazing selection of beautiful fans that give you that french cottage style feel that appeals to all fans of Fixer Uppers.
Home Depot. This is another obvious choice. Recently, they’ve made a move to add additional lines to their home decor collection, which means they are also adding an emphasis on making the home not only function well, but also look amazing. In a related post, check out my Home Depot farmhouse decor roundup.
Target. Target has not only amazing quality, but a great value on farmhouse ceiling fans. I know, it’s hard to believe that Target has ceiling fans, but they do! (Check out my picks for Target farmhouse decor.)
Wayfair. Wayfair prides itself in not only free shipping, but also an incredible array of styles and design for everyone. They do a great job in curating some of the best products for those looking for that modern farmhouse glam.
Birch Lane. I THINK Birch Lane is somehow a sister to Wayfair (don’t quote me on that). I feel like Birch Lane lies in between Wayfair and Pottery Barn. I love how clean their products are, especially the ceiling fans.
Joss and Main. What I don’t like about Joss and Main is how there is a forced popup to add your email address in order even access their online catalog. However, it is worth it to see the gorgeous selection of ceiling fans. While they are a bit on the expensive side as compared to the other stores listed, sometimes you can find some amazing deals if you look hard enough.
Amazon. Amazon has also a pretty small, but great selection of farmhouse ceiling fans. It might be small, but the ones they do have are also stunning. (Check out my picks for farmhouse decor from Amazon).
eBay. I know what you are thinking – a used fan? No! They have a GREAT selection of ceiling fans that are STILL NEW. eBay honestly is a great starting point for shopping so you can see what the options are and compare it to stores that you typically shop at.

Metal Cage Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans that have the wire cage around them provide that rustic aesthetic that people who love farmhouse decor tend to be drawn to. Here are some gorgeous ones that have a metal cage around the fan as well as around just the lights!
Modern Farmhouse Ceiling Fans with Light
In most rooms, you need a ceiling fan with a light because your space may not have a lot of natural light. By replacing your light with a fan (if it has the connection), you’ll be able to increase air circulation as well as style the room at the same time.
Country Farmhouse Ceiling Fans without Light
If you have an outdoor space or a space where you just don’t need anymore light, here are some perfect options to give your cozy little space some much needed air circulation!
Vintage Galvanized Farmhouse Ceiling Fan
Nothing screams vintage, farmhouse decor than having galvanized decor. These galvanized ceiling fans provide that rustic touch that everyone loves.
Flush Mount French Farmhouse Ceiling Fans
Flush mount ceiling fan anchors the fan directly against the ceiling, which is in contrast to what builder grade fans are (what you see in new homes). These are often referred to as low profile ceiling fans.
