Ceilings play an integral part in the overall appearance or semblance of any structure or rooms. Ceilings are often ignored during the process of decorating the building and hence form the untapped spaces in most places that can be effectively decorated to improve the overall aesthetics of the surroundings. The most common ceiling furnishings that are being used are

Ceiling lamps

The lamps are integral to any well designed and decorated space. Ceiling lamps may be used to convey a sense of comfort and coziness that may render the visitor or the person comfortable and in awe to his surroundings. Ceiling lamps are commonly found in most houses and restaurants.


A chandelier is a decorative ceiling-mounted light fixture. Chandeliers are often ornate, and normally ue lamps.

These are considered as the most royal and expensive decorations that can accord a flavour of affluence to the surroundings. These decorative lights are usually found in royal palaces, forts and in very expensive hotels and restaurants.

False ceilings/dropped ceilings

A dropped ceiling is a secondary ceiling, hung below the main (structural) ceiling. It may also be referred to as a drop ceiling, T-bar ceiling, false ceiling, suspended ceiling, grid ceiling, drop in ceiling, or drop out ceiling and is a staple of modern construction and architecture in both residential and commercial applications.

False ceilings are used to give a multilayered effect to the ceilings and give a visually appealing look to the enclosed space.

Cove lights/concealed lights

Cove lighting is a form of indirect lighting built into ledges, recesses, or valences in a ceiling or high on the walls of a room. It directs light up towards the ceiling and down adjacent walls. It may be used as primary lighting, or for aesthetic accent, especially to highlight decorative ceilings. Cove lighting is valued because it hides the fixtures, and because it provides a very even, warm light.

Ceiling wallpapers/Texture painting/Murals

Wallpapering a ceiling can be tricky, but it’s by far the most versatile treatment discussed here. Paper suits flat, sloped and irregularly shaped ceilings, and the vast array of patterns and textures on the market makes for endless design possibilities. Wallpapers may be used to render a personal feel to the surroundings.

Suspended grid ceiling

Suspended grid ceilings are used to cover up pipes, ducts, electrical connections, etc. using wood, plaster of paris,


Paneling is a wall covering or ceiling covering constructed from rigid or semi-rigid components. These are traditionally interlocking wood, but could be plastic or other materials.

Paneling was developed in antiquity to make rooms in stone buildings more comfortable. The panels served to insulate the room from the cold stone. In more modern buildings, such paneling is often installed for decorative purposes. Paneling, such as wainscoting and boiserie in particular, may be extremely ornate and is particularly associated with seventeenth and eighteenth century interior design, Victorian architecture in Britain, and its international contemporaries.
