Lowering the ceiling with plaster is an increasingly used trick. The lowering of plaster allows the room to be more cozy, cozy and aesthetically more beautiful.
The technique is also very useful in cases where the right foot is very high or, then, when there are beams or apparent pipes. In this case, lowering the ceiling helps to hide the imperfections and keep everything in order with a flawless look. The lowering of plaster is still useful for hiding curtain rods and blind.
However, one of the main advantages of the recessed ceiling is the variety of possible lighting projects. With the lowering of plaster, it is possible to incorporate points of indirect light through the crown molding, creating light traces and wall wash effects, which can be translated as "light bath on the wall". And, in fact, that's right. This type of installation allows the light to be directed along the entire length of the wall, bathing it in light and enhancing architectural details, textures and colors, as well as giving volume to the wall.
The plaster still gives a high esthetic value thanks to its smooth and homogeneous appearance, ideal to leave the most modern designs, cleans and elegant. In more modern designs, instead of the traditional frame, what is used today is the tabica, a finish for the lining that maintains a small distance between the ceiling and the wall.
However, if you prefer a more rustic, classic or retro footprint, the option is to leave the lines straight to the side and use frames and details in curves.
