Why are ceilings important to building design?
Ceilings can help reduce heat from entering the home. Together with proper ceiling ventilation, heat coming in during hot summer months can be reduced and prevent condensation which accumulates in your roof and even on walls which may cause problems in the future.
For office spaces, a good ceiling can make different areas feel airy and expansive, or cozy and comfortable. It also helps maximize lighting and reduce energy costs by controlling air circulation in a roof and living space.
A good ceiling design can give a room a unique character that leaves an indelible impression in the minds of those who see it.
