Covelight False Ceiling Works

Types of False Ceiling Designs

Living Area

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.

L-shaped Covelight False Ceiling

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 covelight/ Twin Bar covelight False Ceiling

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.

Flat False Ceiling

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
