No matter how elegant, one of the most overlooked areas of a home is the ceiling. Some even opt for false ceiling to dress it up a little. However, there are some stunning lighting options available in the market to really turn a room into a stunner and set the mood.
If you’ve scoured the markets, then you’ll know about the confusing array of light fixtures. So we’ll tackle it one at a time by starting with recessed lights, a.k.a., false ceiling lights. Recessed lights emit light through the panels in a false ceiling. Livspace offers these options for you to choose from:
False Ceiling Lights #1: Cove lights
Ever wondered how a soft, diffused light is emitted from a false ceiling? LED strip lights is your answer! By concealing the string lights above the crown moulding, or on a ledge in the false ceiling, you can enjoy the luxurious, hotel-like setting right at home!
Since this is an indirect form of lighting, it not harsh on the eyes and adds a warm glow which looks inviting. These are perfect mood lights to set the ambience when visitors come over. From living rooms to bedrooms, cove lights can make one feel instantly comfortable.
Power Consumption: LED Strip lights consume 4.8 watts and upwards.
False Ceiling Lights #2: LED Lights
Confused between LED lights and strip lights? LED lights are singular bulbs which can be fitted into a holder whereas strip lights are attached to a ribbon-like circuit board and need to be plugged into a socket.
If you’re looking for ambient lighting to illuminate your home, then opt for LED lights set in recesses of the false ceiling. For compact rooms with low ceilings, this indirect lighting option fits best. The arrangement in a grid pattern can give it a rather modish look.
The lights fit behind the frosted panels illuminate the room. The panels soften the brightness and reduce the blinding effect.
Power Consumption: LED lights consume 5 watts and upwards.
False Ceiling Lights #3 Backlit Ceiling panels
Now, the installation of cove lights and LED lights might be a task. However, backlit panels offer easy installation in just 30 minutes as they are factory-finished. And the best part? The lighting options can vary between ambient and mood lights. It’s quite the rage these days and you won’t regret the choice!
For a decorative ambience, RGB lights of 15 different colours can be turned on with a remote control. However, if you’re looking for the main source, ambient white light is also a choice. The stylish pattern on the panels is the latest in the industry which offers an elegant vibe.
For those who can’t spare a false ceiling in their home, a backlit panel can work wonders. The standard sizes are relocatable as they are readymade. Also, they come with coves where you can fit in LED strings for a soft glow.
Power: Backlit panels use LED tubes which consume 7 watts and upwards.
Eye-catchy, flamboyant ceiling designs can add to the glamour quotient of your home. Pick wisely to give your home that extra glow.
“ Since backlit panels are factory-finished, the products can be guaranteed to be of better quality. The installation is also hassle-free making it a handy option for clients.”
