Some call it faux /false ceiling while some others call it drop/suspended ceiling. Call it what you may because there has never been a more exciting canvas in your house to play with!
Things we covered for you
False ceilings are often caste aside in lieu of walls and floors while decorating a space, however, we believe that they can do much more than just hide ugly pipes, wires and fittings. We are here to show you how to jazz up your ceilings with a fresh perspective.
Construction Basics of False Ceilings Designs:
A traditional false ceiling design is made of gypsum boards that are suspended from the original ceiling with aluminum framing. This technique is colloquially known as POP (Plaster of Paris). This creates a gap for recessed light fittings to do away with ugly tube lights with PVC pipes and strips running haphazardly on your ceilings.
New Heights Using False Ceilings Designs:
The above basic assembly can help you achieve a hierarchy in spaces with flat minimal ceiling using different heights depending on your layout. This can create an illusion of segregated areas within a room. For example, you can create a cozy nook or a corner with a shallow ceiling height that can be clad in wood.

False Ceiling Design Cove Trove:
Ceiling to wall joineries are a missed opportunity to create that unique connection between the two surfaces. Use coved ceiling detail to have a seamless transition between your ceiling and walls.
False ceilings can also be used to create light coves at the wall junction for an ambient wash of light on your precious texture walls. This cove when added along the window can be used to conceal curtain tracks, thus completely eliminating the need for unseemly pelmets and curtain rods.
False Ceiling Design Recesses and Drops:
Playing with levels alone is an opportunity to add ambient concealed light to your space. The recesses and drops can be introduced in the bedrooms for minimal yet effective highlighting.
