Design Ideas for Ceiling Panelling


Discover the various kinds of ceiling panelling and some cutting-edge design concepts for stunning ceilings.

In order to produce a decorative finish, ceiling panelling is the use of panels, planks, battens, or boards that are installed on the ceiling surface in a variety of patterns and styles. This method has been used for centuries to add texture and improve the appearance of ceilings and interior spaces overall in both residential and business settings.

Additionally, they can be used to cover up flaws like roof cracks or water damage stains. They are typically made of MDF or natural wood, which can be painted or stained to match the design and give the room the appearance you want. There are numerous ceiling panelling choices available.

The different types of Ceiling Panelling

Tongue and GrooveInterlocking boards with a tongue on one side and a groove on the other make up tongue and groove ceiling panelling. This layout makes installation simple and guarantees that the boards fit together firmly and securely, producing a uniform appearance. This form of ceiling panelling can be made using lining boards and Intrim VJ Panelling (timber sheets).

Coffered: Square or rectangle recessed panels are spaced apart by beams in coffered ceilings. They are a chic and sophisticated way to give a space depth and elegance. Although they are quite formal and traditional, they can be incorporated into a wide range of Australian homes and can be made to your desired depth based on your personal preferences despite the wide variety of architectural designs available today. This style of ceiling can be made using a variety of timber mouldings. To discuss your desired appearance, get in touch with one of our design consultants.

Geometric pattern panelling: A contemporary and original method to add interest to the space is with geometric panelling. It features repeating ceiling patterns made of geometric shapes like triangles, squares, and hexagons and looks great in modern or eclectic-style houses.

Exposed beams: In coastal, farmhouse, rustic, or industrial-style residences, exposed beams are a wonderful way to add warmth and texture to a space.
