False Ceiling Design Ideas for Your Home

A great ceiling can completely revamp the way your room looks; from drab to fab. Right from olden times, ceilings have been decorated to provide the desired oomph factor in interior designing. From glam chandeliers to ceiling frescoes, architecture of the days gone by have stood witness to it all.

False ceilings are simply suspended ceilings that allow you to play around with fabulous lighting, textures, and other accessories. In addition, they offer multiple benefits such as allowing you to soundproof your home, improve heating and insulation, conceal electric cables, and provide improved waterproofing during the rainy season. Here, we take a look at some fabulous false ceiling designs for your home.

Wooden Look Design

Many of us seek to replicate the old-world charm that comes with wood, within our home interiors. Wooden false ceilings for living room are expensive and yet extremely popular as they add a soft and cozy touch to the room.

Different colors of wood strips can be brought together to create a patchwork look. You have tiny designs embossed or carved into the wood. The only disadvantage of this type of false ceiling, is the fact that wood is prone to termite infestations. So, you must maintain it well and make sure to get a good contractor or interior designer to do the job for you.

Geometrical False Ceiling Designs

Geometrical designs have always been in style. Use sharp squares or smooth circles and curves to layer the design in your false ceiling. The gap between designs can be used to add ceiling lights that will provide the perfect shadow and set the mood in your living room.
