Often when people imagine a false ceiling, they think of those immaterial boring boards suspended in offices that look like a grid. But the residential false ceiling is far from boring. It can be classy, funky, vibrant, elegant, or bizarre; basically anything you want. You can explore a million design options and choose the one that suits the tone you want to give to your room. The finishing can be done with paint or wallpaper as per your choice.
A false ceiling, also known as suspended ceiling, is a secondary ceiling suspended from the main ceiling with the help of a galvanized iron (GI) frame. There are three types of material that are used to create a false ceiling and give a definitive look to the room: gypsum board, wood panels and POP. Gypsum board is the most popular choice in recent times. I will be writing another post on why gypsum board is the best available choice in the market compared to the other two. However, here I intend to elucidate that the function of a gypsum board false ceiling is not just limited to enhancing the visual charm of the home.
