The ceiling is probably the last part of the house people look at when they are inside. However, it doesn’t mean that you should put less effort into it when designing your home.

However, it can also be too simple and boring. Another typical ceiling design is the suspended ceiling. Just like a conventional ceiling, a suspended ceiling is flat, but it is installed below another existing ceiling, usually to conceal mechanical fixtures and wirings.
