Does it matter how many blades a ceiling fan has?
No, it is more important for a ceiling fan to be the right size for your space. Rooms that are 100 square feet or larger require a 52-inch diameter fan to be most effective. Smaller rooms can use a 28-inch through 48-inch diameter model. Larger great rooms may require bigger fans with up with an 80 inch span.
While most ceiling fans have five blades, that is more of an aesthetic consideration rather than a practical one. A fan with fewer blades actually moves more air. Fans located high in a space, such as in a warehouse or home with extremely high ceilings, will typically be three-blade, industrial-grade fans.
