WHAT IS FALSE CEILING
False ceiling is an interesting word in itself. A ceiling is supposed to provideshelter from various natural elements and hang lights and fans etc. A falseceiling cannot provide any shelter from nature by itself and is usefor hiding wires in big offices as well as provide an aesthetic feel to residentiaas well as commercial places. With LED lights becoming cheaper, its becoming a very economical and nice option in interior designs
ADVANTAGES OF FALSE CEILING
A false ceilings is also used for thermal insulation. The air filled gap between the two air filled gap layers of ceiling cools the room down.Air,being a bad conductor of heat, does not allow the heat to flow into the room.This,in turn,helps reduce electricity bills.
If the ceiling height is high (like 12′–16′), we will also have ventilators, This makes room temperature same as out side and due to large space it takes long time to cool with Air-Conditioner.
INFRASTRUCTURE EFFECT OF FALSE CELING
If ceiling height is small (like 9′–10′), The space will be mostly closed and variation of temperature in accordance to outside environment and AC cools it faster (& energy efficient). If no AC is provided the room tends to maintain temperature when last wind came in.
First of all Home Owners should understand benefits of False Ceiling. One of the important benefit which is not well know is good optimize use of Air Conditioning.
False ceiling reduces space in ceiling it helps by increasing Air Conditioning performance. Of course I am talking about rooms with too much height. Lets say your office is 10 x 10 sq feet big room, if your false ceiling is 1 feet below actual ceiling, will cut down ( 10 x 10 x 1 ) cubic space.
That’s definitely saves your energy bill. Inside residence, living room gives good feeling if it has more height, however in bedroom you may think of reducing height a bit. In Kitchen usually people avoid false ceiling, if you have to have it then make sure Chimney / ventilation is in place.
Second benefit is that it provides insulation layer. If your home roof is exposed to direct sunlight or indirect heat. False ceiling will put in one separation layer to keep heat away to some extent. Keeps your room cooler.
There are a lot of False ceiling Designs that you can check on a blog. But if you need something really amazing then get a ceiling with wood accent. Normally, we have wood furniture in our room, therefore, this kind of ceiling complements overall room designs. In case you have a specific color scheme such as pink, mustard, grey, blue, etc then you should add that color hint in your ceiling.
