Among the many elements that can be transformed, to make your living room more attractive, is the ceiling. While ceiling designs have been used in grand buildings since ages, this décor trend is also increasingly being adopted by home owners for their living rooms.
The perfect living room ceiling
Typically, there are two ways to deck up the ceiling in your living room – you can either create a false ceiling or use add-ons on the original ceiling.
As shown in the picture below, recessed light fixtures are used, to illuminate the entire living room. This kind of simple illumination not only makes the space look bigger but also elegant. For small spaces and apartments, this kind of arrangement is ideal.
Pendants, chandeliers and flush lights can also be used, to glam-up the living room ceiling, without creating a false ceiling.
Another way to achieve the same simplicity and elegance in your living room, is by fixing industrial flush lights, as shown in the picture below.
False ceiling designs for the living room
Going for this option could cost you more money, time and resources but there is abundant variety, if you opt for a false ceiling in your living room.
Among the many choices you could pick from, are gypsum ceilings, plaster of Paris (PoP) ceilings, fibre ceilings, wooden ceilings, glass ceilings, metal ceilings, synthetic leather and fabric ceilings. Check out the photo gallery below, to see which false ceiling idea fits best in your scheme of things.

How do you design a ceiling?
The design of the ceiling in the living room of a house, should be based on the available space in the room, the décor theme of the room and the requirement for lighting fixtures.
What is the purpose of false ceiling?
Besides its decorative purpose, false ceilings also serve to insulate the house and hide electrical wiring and other fixtures that may be affixed to the ceiling.
