Drop ceilings are ceiling constructions, whose strength members are fastened directly to the basic ceiling. This is the main difference between a drop and suspended ceiling (whose strength members are fastened to the basic construction). This peculiarity of the drop ceiling allows diminishing floor-to-ceiling height only by the thickness of its frame. According to the materials, used in the construction of the drop ceilings system, they are divided into two groups:
- gypsum panel ceilings
- finishing decorative panel ceilings (wood particleboard, fiberboard, medium density fiberboard, etc.)
The most popular materials for making drop ceilings are:
- Expanded polystyrene plates. This material is heat- and sound- insulating and moisture-proof. It creates a comfortable microclimate in any accommodation.
- Decorative plates from wood particleboard and fiberboard, covered with natural wood veneer.
- Plastic panels. Such panels have no disadvantages: they are light, firm, waterproof and stylish designed.

What is most often associated with the East? Perhaps, fairy tales, luxury, and exquisite delights. And if you want to have a large house, where the rest will be pleasant and comfortable, oriental style is the best choice. Let me get this straight: there are many countries in the East. But most often, speaking of the Oriental interior, people mean Arabic style, rather than Japanese or Chinese one. We owe it to the Arab culture that the objects and materials pleasing the eye and allowing the body to relax were introduced.
Interior in Indian Style House Plans 1200 Sq Ft and oriental atmosphere in the house include carpets and the table filled with sweets and fruit, curtains and pillows, gilding, ornaments, carving, etc.
Even if you’re not ready to change the interior dramatically, the purchase of original curtains, traditional embroidery and beautiful little things in Arabic style can breathe the spirit of eastern fairy tales into your house. So where to begin the transformation?
Divide your house into several zones. If the premise is large enough, you can separate the relaxation area from the eating area. If space is limited, you can combine them. It is quite easy to organize a relaxation area. Its central element is a sofa, filled up with pillows, and a table for a hookah. In the eating area, you should place the low table, surrounded by ottomans.
The main requirement for sofas and armchairs in the oriental interior is a comfort. It is desirable that soft furniture is upholstered in silk or satin. However, if this is not possible, don’t be upset. Just use the bright bedspreads or make the covers. The pillows from brocade and velvet of various shapes and sizes will create exceptional comfort, as it is so nice to lean back on them.

For the creation of the comfortable feeling in the room at any time, you’ll have to see about the proper illumination. It is represented in a great variety. Installing an appropriate ceiling illuminator is essential. It is quite enough to look at the numerous pictures of the ceiling illuminator, described on the Internet and in specialized magazines to understand, how various these devices are.
There are many kinds of the illuminator, and each of them has its features.
The first aspect, which must be taken into account while choosing a ceiling fixture, is its kind. Not every ceiling can bear the weight of the usual massive chandelier. For example, the best option for the tension ceilings is small point illuminators, located according to a particular scheme.
The main factors of choice are:
- kind of illuminator;
- manner of its installation;
- number of lamps;
- the material of light diffuser;
- the durability of ceiling construction.
The aspect and the design are also important factors, but you should use them the last thing.
The modern ceiling fixtures don’t have anything in common with the outdated featureless chandeliers- boring and single-type. In our time they are represented in a wide range of design, kinds, and types.
Such an enormous variety allows choosing the proper illuminators for any accommodation. At that, you can mount a unique color scheme in every room, which will bring warmth and comfort to any accommodation.

Indian Style House Front Elevation Designs have very bright features, which makes it impossible to confuse with any other direction.
Furniture gives special color to the oriental interior: squat tables, wide sofas with lots of pillows, bed with a lush canopy, ottomans, benches for feet, screens and, chests. The design of Arab countries is characterized by heavy carved furniture, often with inlaid semiprecious stones and pearls.
Particular importance is attached to the color scheme. Traditionally, in oriental interiors, natural muted colors (terracotta, ochre and beige) are combined with bright and clear ones (cobalt blue, purple, red, orange, emerald-green and turquoise). Gold is a mandatory color accent. As a rule, golden color is present in the decoration of fabrics.
Windows and doors in oriental interior are the independent art-objects. The windows are decorated with carved wooden shutters or forged grates. Door leafs are often adorned with intricate carving and massive handles.
And, of course, characterizing this design direction, we cannot fail to mention various accessories, without which the oriental interior is impossible. Jugs, copper tableware, hookahs and incense lamps, luminaries, pillows, vases, curtain hooks and mirrors in fancy frames – all this makes the interior apartment even more colorful.

Despite such high output parameters, it is indicated that the engines of Integra “don’t require any adjustments within the first 160 000 km of running”.

Classic white ceiling can harmonize with the most interior styles. But if you need some changes, simplicity and laconicism must give place to the designer ideas. There is a lot of original ways to decorate your ceiling.
There are several main techniques of ceiling decoration. Designers give special preference to the game of light.
Light is probably one of the most interesting sources of “originality”. With the help of the LED strip modern designers create unusually beautiful ceiling highlights. The highlight can be located along the perimeter of accommodation and hidden either behind the ceiling cornice, or in gypsum cardboard box of the two-level ceiling. In a similar way, using LED strips, you can emphasize the beautiful curtains in your room, and make until now ordinary obscure corners bright and luminous. The light aura of the floating ceiling also makes a great impression. You’ll not do without highlight, if you want to arrange the ceiling with the fragments of photo printing and stained glass. And, eventually, if you fasten the LED strip in zigzag under the semitransparent cloth, then install a special controller, regulating lighting intervals, its shade and intensity; you’ll achieve the effect of the water flowing along the ceiling.
There are much more interesting ceiling ideas, which can be fulfilled by means of safe, efficient, colorful and non-heating LED strip.
