Most homeowners who are looking for aesthetically pleasing interiors are now also looking at making the ceiling the focal point the home design! One of the queries we get asked most often is about false ceiling design for bedroom. Apart from making the bedroom look pretty, it serves multiple purposes you may be unaware of:

  • It can give your room uniform lighting or even fancy mood lighting
  • It can conceal any loose wiring on the ceiling 
  • False ceiling can cover up any exposed beams in the construction 
  • It provides insulation and reduces noise levels
  • It can be fire and water-proof as well

When designed well with good quality materials, a false ceiling can easily last more than 20 years, provided it’s not subject to any extreme conditions.

Sleek and simple

We love how this minimalist design manages to pop with a bit of blue, keeping in tune with the theme of the room. Best for low ceiling rooms, the peripheral false ceiling, as the name suggests, runs around the edges of the walls. You can add some diffused lighting for the most part and some spotlights for the study corner. 

#2: Inverted Cove With Recessed Lighting
