Suspended ceiling or known also as dropped ceilings are ceilings that are placed underneath the existing one and hide any kinds of wiring or piping that may be sticking out of the current ceiling. Suspended ceilings are a great idea as they allow you to hide all of the clutter that is up there already allowing for maintenance to be carried out on anything that is there without as much risk as you would without the suspended ceiling being there.
Another way to make the ceiling seem higher or lower is with molding. You can paint molding the same color as the ceiling to make the room smaller, and paint it the same color as the walls, to make the room seem larger, and the ceiling further away. Ceilings are a large and important feature in a space, and should not be ignored just because they are remote, and difficult to reach. By using contrast, unity, and color, it is possible to use the ceiling to add a whole new level to your decorative designs.
You have the option of going more traditional with a smooth texture, semi- smooth, or a popcorn style ceiling. Plain ceilings can be enhanced without paint if you wish, but before launching into those aspects let's look a bit more at paint. The paint you choose should match the rest of the room's decor and the walls. It doesn't have to be the same color, but something that will meld well. Murals are still a possibility if you have a painter or you have the talent to create an image you will want to live with. A common option is Trompe l'oeil painting as it adds a bit of gusto to the ceiling.
During the WW II Era, tin ceiling tiles went out of favor as metals were conserved for the war effort, and other types of ceilings were promoted. By the 1950s and 1960s, acoustic drop ceiling tiles and dry wall dominated the marketplace and could be found in homes, hotels and buildings. Because original tin ceiling tiles have such pretty designs and craftsmanship, many people like to collect these lovely antique pieces. Collectors enjoy finding tiles of different sizes, as well as seeking out tiles with unique patterns, shapes, colors and symbols.
During construction is the easiest time to add such a fixture, but the homeowner may have opted not to do so for any number of reasons. The extra labor costs to do so wouldn't have been extreme, but construction costs are often much more than anticipated under good circumstances, so there may have been the need to avoid any extra expense. And the homeowner also might not have realized how beneficial such a light might be until after the construction was complete. Installing a ceiling light fixture once the home is built is a little more involved. So much so that many people never even consider doing it.
