Though traditionally they’ve been eyesores, a ceiling fan is one of the most energy-efficient ways to keep your room cool. Luckily, things have changed: These 16 gorgeous modern ceiling fans manage to keep it cool and look cool, too. The best part? They’re reasonably priced, falling between $250 and $800.

1. Raven LED Ceiling Fan by Rejuvenation, $500

Fresh Fact: All fans come with a small switch on the motor so you can change the direction the fan spins. In the summer, blades should rotate counter-clockwise to cool a room. In the winter, flip the switch to clockwise so the fan can push the warm air that has risen back down into the space.

4. Ronan Industrial-Style Ceiling Fan by Hunter, $249

Fresh Fact: A 42-inch or 36-inch fan is best for most rooms under 12 by 12. But a larger fan will cool a room faster and, in the case of a beautiful modern design, showcase the fan better. When in doubt about ideal fan size, check the CFM (cubic feet of air per minute) rating on the box.

8. Industry Ceiling Fan by Modern Fan Company, $412 and up
