Bathroom Fan

Currently I do not have a Bathroom fan in my Main bath. Im having a 6 inch roof vent installed while i have My roof replaced and thought this would be the perfect time to install a new Fan. How ever this has been a process.

Do they make a Quality fan that will put the air out? I found this one...

But my wife wants a pretty designer looking fan, that in no way is even close to the air flow or quietness of this fan.

Im just looking for a good quality fan that will remove the humid ait, with a light.
The main bath area is 80 SqFt and the connecting room is another 60 SqFt. All thats in the 60 SqFt area is the washer and dryer.

Thank you!

I wish I had some experience to help you out with this. I'm looking to add a bathroom fan in mine as well, so let me know how you like whichever fan you end up purchasing.

There are a lot of nice powerful quiet fans available now.

I've picked up a few at Lowes that looked like fancy light fixtures and were remarkably quiet.

Ducting them out correctly so you don't get condensation can be a challenge if you live in a cold climate-

But there are more fancy ones available than ever before.

I just installed one of these:
The fan is on the roof, not in the ceiling, so it's quiet. I installed a timer so it wouldn't get left on.
The grille that comes with it is NOT fancy, but it'd be easy to cover the supplied plastic grille with a decorative one.
I am very pleased with this fan, and am putting another in the other bathroom.

The bath fan would need a dedicated exhaust vent with a damper.
