POP designs for halls are the most common (and popular) kind of false ceiling ideas. And the designs, no wonder, are endless. Here, we list down some that will always remain in vogue.
(This is a chapter of a bigger guide on false ceilings in India.)
Do note that plaster of Paris (POP) has become so popular in India that it is considered to be the default material for false ceilings (even though there’s gypsum, wood, metal, glass and more). So unless specified, your local contractors mostly assume that you’re looking for POP ceiling designs for your drawing rooms.
Now let’s look at the designs.
The coffered style is a great way to add depth and texture to a plain ceiling. While it makes the room look a bit closed in, it also gives a warm, inviting and cosy appeal. In fact, this design suits the drawing room much more than any other area in the house.
2. With a Wooden Border
