Undoubtedly, the ceiling is the largest unused space in any room. Hence, to make optimum use of this area, you can add various design features, including ceiling medallions and moldings. These can be easily customised by POP (plaster of Paris) experts and installed accordingly. Check out some of the latest designs:
Simple ‘tray’ designs
If you do not want to add something extravagant to your dining space, you could opt for a simple ‘tray’ design, where the borders are neat and the edges are a bit lower than the rest of the ceiling. The benefit of using such a false ceiling, is that although it defines the room, it does not take away the focus or overwhelm the entire space. You can install warm recessed lights too, while maintaining a minimal look.

Another trend that is very common these days, is to install a wooden or plywood sheet to the base of the false ceiling, for a decorative touch. You can also opt for PVC, metal or glass, as per your choice. A fan can be easily placed in the centre, while recessed lights can be put along the edges. Suspended, island style false ceilings are also in vogue, as it accommodates lighting all around it, which provides a soft, flushed glow to the ceiling.
