Why is ceiling so important to address when you do Interiors ?
Ceiling, flooring and walls define a space. Each one of them are of prime importance whilst designing your Interiors as ceiling is a big mass that is seen.
Ceiling height is very important before you think of what to do. Most Homes come with about 3 meter high ceiling and have a concrete slab or premade Gypsum ceiling to hide the AC ducting and lighting wires.
Some Villas have a tall double floor ceiling height whilst others, have the top floor and lobby space that has a tall Roof. Green Community Villas have a huge slanted roof so the top floor rooms get a slanted tall ceiling.
Here are some tips on what one could do to enhance the ceiling and what materials could one use:
Enhancing slanted ceiling with wood looks great. It will give a warm, natural look and give a cozy gazebo kind of effect. It fits in with both modern and classic interiors.
Painting the ceiling in a different color and giving some wooden edging.
Applying wallpaper in the ceiling.
Leaving the ceiling as it is and adding wooden overhangs in different textures.
Using Mashrabiya or wooden cutouts with acrylic and making an additional overhang over the existing ceiling.
Making different cubical depths with gypsum, combined with wood.
Adding overhanging shaped cut outs combined with lights.
Adding shapes colors and textures in the Children room ceiling if you desire to make themed rooms.
Enhancing Kitchen ceiling with 60×60 readymade gypsum tiles for easy access and then having Gypsum ceilings or wooden enhancements.
White ceilings are great and make the house look large. When enhancing the ceiling, be careful that if the ceiling is wooden and darker, it may make your space look smaller so keep the walls and floor lighter as a contrast.
It is possible to enhance rental homes too with nice ceilings, cost effectively, which could be removed easily.
