Whether or not to spend on false ceilings is still the question on the minds of many homeowners. 

Many homeowners believe that false ceilings are just a matter of design and nothing else. What other benefits are they getting? 

So first let us understand what is the false ceiling? 

A false ceiling as the name suggests is the suspended or secondary ceiling under your RCC ceiling, also known as a drop/fall ceiling. 

False ceilings are created by aluminum framing in a square pattern where the gypsum board fits in and then is finished with paint or wallpaper.



Installing a false ceiling reduces the height of your room from 4 inches to 8 inches from the existing RCC ceiling. If the height of your rooms is already less, then you might need a second thought on the decision of going for it. 

Now it is an argument as it is a matter of money. 

Homeowners are spending thousands of rupees for each and every square foot and here they are spending money to reduce the height of their room which definitely makes them think.
