Most home owners overlook the importance of having a false ceiling in their home. While other renovation works such as tiling, painting or carpentry can be essential, having a false ceiling can really create an impact to how your home is perceived.
Some say a ceiling is actually the fifth wall in our homes. A false ceiling enhances the interior décor of the space. It can be custom built into various shapes and sizes with a smooth finish for painting or laminating
An important aspect of installing a false ceiling is to install decorative lighting such as down lights and cove lights. It is like jewellery for the home: it helps your space sparkle and shine. From general lighting to accent lighting, multiple layers of lighting can be created to suit the occasion or mood.
False ceiling hides the non-pleasing elements such as electrical cables and air-con ducts from the viewer’s eyes. In bathroom, ceilings can be provided to hide the pipes or any other fittings above.
1. What are some considerations to think about before going for false ceiling?
Most Singaporeans are concerned about the finished ceiling height when it comes to false ceiling.
HDBs are usually around 2.5m to 2.6m in height. Condominiums and EC have higher ceiling height of 2.8m to 3m.
However, bearing that in mind, interior designers have found ways to overcome these factors. Some designs include installing covelights / L-box along the sides of the room preserving most of the actual ceiling height. Additionally, this allow the ceiling fan to be directly mounted to the actual ceiling. You can refer to our false ceiling designs for more information.
2. Can false ceiling be done in wet zones like the kitchen and bathroom? If so, what are some precautions to take?
False ceiling in Wet Zones such as kitchen and bathroom are not of concern. In fact, most condominiums have them in their bathrooms to conceal the services above them.
However, do note that it is recommended to use a minimum standard of moisture resistance plasterboard as material as the standard plasterboard are not as resistant to water
3. What are the standard heights for false ceilings? Are the standard heights different for HDBs versus condos?
There are no standard heights. False ceiling are quite flexible in design and can be customised to your preference.
However, HDB do have a general guideline of not less than 2.4m height in height.
4. I understand false ceiling is either made from gypsum board or plasterboard. What is the difference in terms of quality and price?
The use of plasterboard for home renovations is more of an accepted industry standard nowadays as gypsum board is more expensive material.
In terms of finishing, gypsum and plasterboard actually looks the same after painting and you wouldn’t be able to tell them apart. Gypsum board are more environmentally friendly and in a contractor’s point of view, is more efficient in installation and produce less mess as compared to plasterboard.
