Design Ideas for Office Ceilings
Baffle ceilings are becoming increasingly popular for commercial spaces around the world. Its look is an interesting one, often made of aluminium but finished in a timber-style to give it a more natural look. There’s a range of finishes available, in reality, with various wood-effects like oak and beech, and the baffle tubes can take various widths and shapes for a little extra personalisation.
The ‘baffle tubes’ are the strips that make up the ceiling. Lighting can be fitted between each tube, or the space can be left empty to present a section of the ceiling above, depending on what it looks like. Baffle ceilings are favoured for the way they help create atmosphere in a space, and they’re often installed on concrete ceilings to help improve the level of noise pollution and the quality of the acoustics in a room.
Open Cell Ceilings
Open cell ceiling takes a grid-like format. The ceiling itself is made from aluminium alloy, meaning it can be finished with a variety of powder coatings, but the most popular choices are white and black. The size of cells themselves – the square gaps between the lines – can be altered to suit your requirements.
The minimalist, faux-industrial look is becoming more and more popular around commercial spaces. The bare ceiling is painted a certain colour, as are the pipes and wires that run along it. Depending on the type of pipes, sometimes they are left unpainted – copper pipes are a good example of this, as their colour and appearance has been on-trend for the last few years. Exposed ceilings also allow for more natural light to enter a room, as well as offering a greater sense of space, particularly in rooms with lower ceilings.
Also known as drywall, gypsum ceilings are a popular option for people looking for a cheaper method of ceiling or wall installation.
