Drop, or suspended, ceilings come with a wide-range of benefits. They are great for sound-proofing, provide excellent insulation, and are useful for improving the aesthetics of your work, or home, environment by hiding unsightly cabling and pipes. For more information on the benefits of suspended ceilings, check out our previous blog “The many benefits of suspended ceilings
“. After a while, however, you may want to update the look of your drop ceiling, in which case, we have a few tips for you to consider.
Change the tiles – or give them a paint job.
Lay-in and clip-in grid drop ceilings are formed with tiles that are placed into a pre-fitted grid system. These tiles can easily be replaced by a specialist company, and come in a range of styles and colours. If you don’t want to replace the tiles entirely, a lick of paint will give a refreshed look to your drop ceiling.
Hide that metal grid
A traditional lay-in grid drop ceiling will leave you with an exposed metal frame, so if you’re looking to give your drop ceiling a face-lift, this may be a good place to start. There are a number of ways to cover this grid, either with paint, wooden coverings, or even coloured tape. You’ll be surprised at the difference that such a simple change can make.
Consider a replacement?
If you notice that your suspended ceiling is looking a little rundown, and are willing to spend a little extra, it may be worth considering an entire ceiling replacement. A big change like this will also allow you to create an entirely new look for your office or home environment. A new drop ceiling could be more affordable than you realise, with a range of style and finish options available.
