Is a False Ceiling Right for Your Home?
If you have a noisy neighbour staying right above your unit like me, installing a false ceiling may have crossed your mind (Or would you knock on their doors and say your piece!). It's true that a false ceiling can help to muffle noise from upstairs, but there is always an option to try knocking on your neighbour's door and politely asking them to keep the noise down. In some cases, a simple conversation like this can be all it takes to resolve the issue. But...what if it doesn't resolve the issue? For us, we have chosen to taking the “Good Neighbour” stance, and consider spending our time and money to install a false ceiling instead. Let's have a look at the different types of false ceilings with lighting options.
False Ceiling with Cove Lighting
Cove lighting a built-in illumination is one of many forms of light that allows light to be directed to the wall. This practice not only emphasizes the fixture, but it also creates a dramatic effect. You can appreciate this particular type of light when you come across alcoves, high-up walls, recesses, ledges and above the cabinetries.
Interior designers have long used cove lighting as a versatile option for presentations. Cove lighting can create indirect light on the ceiling, which can then be reflected off wallpaper to create a more even light distribution. This is especially beneficial in rooms with high ceilings, as it can help to brighten up the space. Additionally, cove lighting can be used to create a variety of different moods and atmospheres, depending on the type of bulb that is used, and it also allows you to involve a dimming controller.
Despite having numerous advantages, cove lighting also has a number of disadvantages associated with its use. These include the high initial cost, the need for regular maintenance and the difficulty in creating an even light distribution. Cove lighting can also create glare and cause visual discomfort for some people. While cove lighting can create a warm and inviting atmosphere, it may not be bright enough for task work. In these situations, supplementary lighting may be required.

Recessed lights within the false ceiling are spaced throughout, thus providing more coverage and can light up every corner of the room uniformly. The main advantage of recessed lighting is that it does not take up any floor or table space. Another advantage is that recessed lighting can be used in conjunction with other types of lighting to create a desired effect. Recessed lights are commonly applied in kitchens, living rooms, and bathrooms design instead of bedrooms.
False Ceiling With Single Bar Cove Light
