Good, Better, Best: Island-Inspired Ceiling Fans

When CasaSugar reader Sumnboutme bookmarked a gorgeous ceiling fan as part of the seaside cottage Casa Craving challenge, I was inspired to go on the hunt for two more island-inspired ceiling fans to round out a Good, Better, Best. These easy, breezy fans would work well with Caribbean-style decor or minimalist, natural elements.

Good: I love the angled blades on this light and airy Hampton Bay 4-Blade Fan with Bahama Beige Finish ($199).

Two even better islander ceiling fans, so

Better: Sumnboutme's pick was the Mandalay Bahama Beige Ceiling Fan ($330) with palm-frond like blades that emanate a simple elegance.

Best: More formal but just as tropical, the Tommy Bahama Marine Teak Ceiling Fan ($515) echoes the look of a luxurious wooden boat.

FabSugar - you should look for a fan with a high degree of pitch so that it most efficiently pushing air around the room/your house! the flat blades don't really do all that much unless they are quite high up.

I have the Hampton Bay fan in my bedroom and I love it. It really gets the air moving since I have a vaulted ceiling

I don't like ceiling fans, and I really don't like island inspired ceiling fans.

I love my pick..of course. Thanks for the mention Casa! I actually got the idea from Betelnut on Union St. They have similar looking fans in the bar area.

Thanks Casa! I'm on the prowl for new ceiling fans and I was inspired by a trip to Jamaica a few years ago. I love the tropical fan, just don't know if it'll work with my Fab look. xo

Super cute! I saw one similar to the Better at Lowe's and fell in love with it. Unfortunately, it would not blend well into my house. :(

My mom has the first one in her bedroom, its a "southwestern" themed room. It looks good and it has some neat features that a different from a standard ceiling fan.

I don't really care for either of the new picks, i love the 'better' - so gorgeous! The tommy is too plain to count as island, in my opinion. But I love the island look, sooo cute.
