Can you put a large ceiling fan in a small room?
Subsequently, one may also ask, can a ceiling fan be too big for a room?
Ceiling fans are sometimes looked over when decorating a home. Besides of freshening a room, fans complete a room design and composition. A ceiling fan that's too big will overpower the room's design and visually pull the ceiling downwards; a fan that's too small won't properly circulate the air.

Is 52 inch fan too big?
A normal sized fan, 52-56 inches, will put off an average of about 6,000 cubic feet per minute of air on high speed. This reason is exactly why large ceiling fans have become so popular. The larger blade spans spread air across an area much better than standard sized blades do.
