The fifth wall or the ceiling has remained anonymous for years in India. There were days when no matter what color you put on your walls, the ceiling would remain white. In a lot of cases, the ceiling paint was of a lower quality than the one used on the walls as well. However, in the last few couple of years, the fifth wall has gotten its due share of importance, thanks to the widespread popularity of false ceilings. False ceilings are secondary ceilings suspended from the original structural ceiling of a room. Commonly made from POP or gypsum board, these are attached to the beams, walls or the structural ceiling itself and include cut-outs for lighting and air-conditioning.
Our latest love, as the top interior designers and architects in the country would agree, are wooden accents in false ceilings. Classy and elegant, these can be executed in a number of interesting ways and will add a whole new dimension to your spaces. We’ve put together some inspiration to get you started.
