When we bought the house, there was a ceiling fan with light in EVERY room. I mean every room, even the bathroom!

We talked about taking some out but quickly realized because we live on a hill there is a nice breeze that flows through and the fans help quite a bit! Our electric bill was quite low because of open windows/breeze and ugly fans VS A/C.

Now, if i had money, time and cared- i would upgrade them to fancy ones and would take the kitchen and bathroom ones out and replace with just lights.

I don't really like them.

But I did go out of my way to find a NICE one to put in my office area because my apartment has little-to-no airflow. It took me a long time to find one that was aesthetically pleasing.

I need the air movement it provides - so Yes.

Not only do I like them...I consider them a necessity. I am a hot sleeper - I absolutely HAVE to have a fan in the bedroom in order to sleep. If no fan, then the A/C is going dowwwwwwnnnnnnn low!

"Do you like a ceiling fan in a bedroom? "

Yes, we do!

We have a fan in each of the bedrooms, and they DO get used.
We also have on on the porch - wonderful for sitting out!
The one in the family room (cathedral ceiling) really does not get used much, as the room has great cross ventilation.

we have them in our bedrooms and then in our bonus room (due to very high ceilings). I have a very hard time finding aesthetically pleasing fans but the functionality they provide in bedrooms is great so we use them.

We love our lighted ceiling fan in our bedroom. Our kids' rooms didn't have overhead lighting, so last month we had guys come in and install overheard ceiling fan/lights in their rooms - they LOVE them. I should have had them put one in the guest room (no overhead lighting in there either), but we so rarely have guests that we felt we could go without in there.

We have a ceiling fan in our bedroom and we run it almost 24/7. Even at night in the wintertime and we have no heat in the bedroom. We like it cold at night. The other main rooms also have ceiling fans. Stuffiness is not allowed in our house.
