One of the most important components of a home remodel is to have good ventilation. You want to make sure that moisture, odors and airborne particles are taken care of within your home. You will want ventilation for your cooking areas and in your bathrooms. The kitchen areas will take care of the steam from cooking and the odors and potentially any smoke from burnt items. Ventilating properly will improve the air quality in your home and increase your enjoyment. Here are different types of bathroom ventilation fans.

Regular Fans

These types of fans are normally turned on and off by a switch and the basic function is just to remove the moisture and odors. They come in a variety of colors and shapes to accommodate any décor that you have chosen for the room.

Fan with light

Another type of fan is a regular fan but has lighting as part of its functioning. This can be great in a smaller room that does not allow for a lot of extras. Also, it can be good for use as a light to use at night when you don’t want a bright light in the bathroom. You can also check if you can get a colored light to lessen the brightness as well.

Fan with heater

A great ventilation choice for your bathroom is a fan with a heater. This can help after kids get out of a bath or on those cold winter mornings when you just can’t get dry fast enough from a shower. These can be found with or without lighting added.

Motion Sense

Another fan option is one where the fan is turned on by motion. This can be helpful if you have small children that don’t quite realize that things need to be turned off when they leave the bathroom. Once the sensor does not detect motion anymore, then it will automatically shut off.


These types of fans are actually deceptive looking. They would look like a regular light, but there is a hidden fan as well.  Some of these can be flush with the wall/ceiling. It would depend on your needs in the space you plan to use it.

Bluetooth Fans

The upgraded fans can also be considered smart fans because they can be controlled by your smartphone through an app. These types of fans can allow for music to be played, lights to turn on and off, adjust the fan speed, and allow the fan to be on a timer. You can choose the fan based on what features you are interested in having in your home.
