The wobble factor is greatly decreased and these types of ceiling fans are available in a range of styles from casual to contemporary, and traditional to modern.

Fan diameter, often referred to as blade span, encompasses the complete length from the end of one blade to the opposite end of another blade. Blade spans of 44" or smaller are a good choice for bedrooms, breakfast nooks and home offices, while large low profile ceiling fans with a blade span of 60" or more are suited for living rooms, great rooms and outdoor living areas.
