Although there are alot of false ceiling designs that you can find online, we realise that home owners are looking for something more applicable to our homes in Singapore.
We have arranged our false ceiling design in terms of areas within a residential unit. Here are some of the different false ceiling designs for residential units that we would like to share.
The Living area in a home is the most essential. It is where you spend most of your time as you mingle with your family members and friends; or to wind down after a tough day. Since so much time is spent here, it is important that your living area can provide enough lighting, look bigger and provide alternative accent lighting if possible.
Many HDB dwellers are worried that with a flat false ceiling, the finished height of your home would be greatly reduced. We usually work around this by recommending false ceiling design coupled with covelight/L box surrounding all sides of your living area.
The use of a single surface mounted light often cast shadows around the living area. This can make the room look duller than it seems. Hence, the use of downlights installed on all sides of the living room can not only reduce shadows but brightened up the room more evenly.
Complement this with covelights to provide accent lighting effects. Covelights provides a warm glow allowing you to wind down and feel relax after a long day a work.
Design flexibility – Some home owners prefer the L-shaped covelight false ceiling as it gives more flexibility to the design. Additionally, it enhances the visual depth of the living room.
Hence, onlookers would feel that the room actually seems wider. The flexibility of a L-shape covelight design allows you to adjust it’s shape according to your home’s layout. For example, the false ceiling can be aligned with the passageway to your bedroom as shown in the image on the right. By doing so, your false ceiling would look more proportional.
Demarcating your living and dining area – In some residential units, the dining area and the living area are located within the same area. This can be confusing to separate them. Hence, with a L-shape covelight false ceiling design, your cozy corner could be seggregated away from your dining area easily.
You might also consider U-shaped covelight when there is space constraints or when an Air-con is already built in for most ECs and Condominiums. A U-shaped Covelight is just as appealing as a four sided covelight.
One bar or Twin bar covelight is yet another alternative. It does not take up too much space allowing flexibility in placing other decor lighting or a ceiling fan.
This design also helps make the room perceive as longer or wider depending on which side of the room it is located at.
A flat false ceiling allows you to spread your lighting more evenly throughout the living area. The even false ceiling can conceal your actual ceiling which can sometimes be quite uneven.
Additionally, the increase in lighting points for the downlights are also much cheaper as compared to adding surface light points.
Spice up your false ceiling – A flat false ceiling need not be plain and boring. One suggestion is to add certain features such as cove lighting shine against the wall to make the room seems wider. Alternatively, you could add recessed drop ceiling in some stretches of your false ceiling
The use of false ceiling with covelight are good ways to highlight a dining area. In addition, it also sets your mood for a good meal with your family. Bon Appétit !
Bedroom passageway is often long and narrow. In some situations, it can be quite dim too. Adding accent lighting along the sides of the passageway widens it.
Feeling more adventurous, you could also try to add unique false ceiling designs too!
Today, bedrooms of new condos and flats are getting smaller! It is not recommended to install all sides of your bedroom with covelight/Lbox as such. This will only make the room look even smaller.
You can work around this by installing one bar, an L-shaped covelight false ceiling or an island covelight design
