One way that you could revitalize dull, boring rooms in your home is by installing decorative ceiling panels. These panels have been manufactured from certain materials which will meet the purpose that they will be used for. Although primarily decorative, it can also serve as insulation and for sound and/or noise reduction.
Let us take a look at one example which would require the use of decorative ceiling panels. During the Seventies and the heyday of disco music, popcorn ceilings were in vogue because they helped to mask the blare of dance tunes. However, these stippled ceilings are unsightly and tend to catch dust and dirt easily. Using panels will restore the aesthetic beauty of your ceiling. Best of all, it still maintains the qualities of popcorn ceilings by providing insulation to your home, making it less hot during summer and less cold at wintertime. It can also dampen both external and internal noise, guaranteeing a good night's sleep.
Decorative ceiling panels come in finished or unfinished patterns. The latter especially will help to give a continuous visual scheme to your ceiling if they are installed side by side. Both of these panel styles are available as painted patterns (either simple or sophisticated) and as metallic finishes. For artistic homeowners, you can buy white panels and just paint the designs of your choice.
As mentioned earlier, these panels are crafted from a wide variety of materials that will meet your every need. Looking for panels that are convenient to install? Go for PVC panels, which would only require special adhesives. Just make sure that your ceiling has a flat surface.
If you need to soundproof a room, you will need panels with acoustic elements. Ideal panels are those made from Styrofoam or polystyrene. You can install them directly to the ceiling with nails, staples or adhesives. On the other hand, if your ceiling has a grid system for insulation, go for drop ceiling panels. The installation of these panels is more difficult because you will need to create a space between the real ceiling and the panels underneath it.
There is a wide variety of panels to choose from. Just make sure that they will be easy to install on top of the current ceiling that you have. Popcorn ceilings may need to be sanded or leveled off. Or you can just build a drop ceiling using genuine or fake wood panels or metal panels. Check out the prices of decorative ceiling panels in order to find styles and designs that meet your budget.
