Post by : favouritehomes
False ceilings are also known as dropped ceilings. They have basically suspended ceilings below the main ceiling and are being increasingly touted as a symbol of sophistication. The new-age homes are increasingly being adorned with this glamorous feature which makes the home’s interiors look more elegant.
However, it’s not just the decorative factor that’s of significance with false ceilings as it is also very useful in hiding the clutter of AC ducts, pipes, electrical wirings, cables, and beams. This leaves you with a beautiful and neat-looking ceiling. Aside from this, false ceilings help in keeping your house cool by acting as a buffer between the hotter main ceiling and the home interiors. This results in helping cut down on your electricity use. It also improves the acoustic capacity of the room by improving sound absorption.
False ceilings also mean that you can install creative ceiling lights, enhancing the beauty of the room. These recessed lights can provide both direct and indirect lighting depending on the mood you want to create. Long-lasting and low energy consuming lights like LED lights are ideal for ceiling lighting and help in cutting down on your electricity bill.
