A Casablanca ceiling fan like Panama ceiling fan makes the perfect bedroom ceiling fan because of it's quiet perfomance and simple style.

Learn About the Casablanca Panama

The Casablanca Panama ceiling fans were the first in the industry to feature a five-blade design. These simple, but elegant ceiling fans have a traditional body with customizable blades, including nautical-inspired sailcloth blades. This fan is very similar to the brushed steel Loft fan by Emerson. However, you may opt for a brushed nickel Panama fan with a no-frills pull chain and a 52” blade span to effectively cool your master bedroom. The Casablanca Panama offers an optional lighting kit. This ceiling fan is ENERGY STAR rated, allowing you to curb your energy consumption and save on monthly utility bills.
