One of the things that I look out for in big buildings, halls and mansions of the really rich folk is their decor. And one of the things that really standout are ceiling tiles. I have not had ceiling tiles in my old house or the two apartments that I have lived in but I have seen some really awesome ones in my life. Ceiling tiles with really intricate designs and the beauty of some of them really appeal to my artistic side and I am amazed and a little bit in awe when I see a really good one.
A non-resident Indian friend of my father has a home in my city which he tends to stay in only a couple of months a year, usually the colder months in the US. Ever since he & his wife retired, they prefer to spend the cold months here in tropical Kerala instead of the cold of Boston, Mass. where they have been living and working since the late 1970s. Their living room cum dining hall has these beautiful decor and the ceiling tiles really stand out, with Indian themed designs that make every visitor stand still in wonderment. Ofcourse it helps if you are willing to invest a bit of money into it but guaranteed that if you look long and hard you will find decently priced ones that are still beautiful. A dedicated space for your home theatre and/or personal theatre room – ceiling tiles can help you get that movie theatre experience.
One type of suspended ceiling is made up of Acoustic Ceiling Tiles (ACT) and a stick-built grid system. Sometimes called a lay-in ceiling, this type of system is versatile, durable, and cost effective. Ceiling tiles made with asbestos are a lower risk because the asbestos fibers are tightly woven within the tile. As with other asbestos materials, however, removing, breaking or cutting can release harmful particles from the fibers. So be careful if you choose to go that route.
