Tongue-and Groove Ceilings Offer Distinct Advantages
Whether it has a natural wood-look finish or is painted pristine white, tongue-and-groove ceilings have a classic style that everyone loves.
When used as an architectural detail, a tongue-and-groove ceiling helps define a space, often becoming the focal point of
a room by introducing visual texture and subtle contrast.
A tongue-and-groove ceiling offers distinct advantages due to its unique construction.
Planks remain in place: The edges of tongue-and-groove ceiling planks have a groove cut and a protruding tongue shape that forms a beveled “V” joint
when joined to adjacent planks. This interlocking mechanism restricts boards from shifting.
Smooth surface: In Armstrong’s WoodHaven® and HomeStyle® tongue-and-groove ceilings, precision milling creates uniform plank edges that fit together in perfect alignment to achieve a smooth, flat surface, as well as straight seams. The ease of using a tongue-and-groove joint also protects plank edges from getting damaged during installation.
Adds character: The texture and beautiful symmetry created by tongue-and-groove ceiling planks add character to any décor – whether traditional,
rustic or modern. You can also make a one-of-a-kind-statement by selecting a wood ceiling finish that matches your style.
WoodHaven offers 15 wood looks in colors and textures that range from rustic knotty pine and weathered driftwood to sophisticated
rich, red cherry and classic maple. Or choose neat-as-a-pin HomeStyle county classic white tongue-and-groove ceiling planks
with a deeply embossed grain pattern to visually expand a room. There’s even a paintable white plank that gives you the freedom
to create your own design with latex paint or custom stains.
Bring on the country charm: For rooms with a country or rural decor, nothing beats the humble and hospitable elegance of beadboard. This traditional
style harkens back to the use of tongue-and-groove ceiling boards as wainscoting to insulate earlier homes. Today you can capture that same country feel with WoodHaven beadboard on walls
Easy installation: Tongue-and-groove ceiling planks are easy to install and make a great weekend project for DIYers. No need for nails or glue
– these ceilings install with Easy Up – an Armstrong-exclusive system that uses concealed metal tracks and clips to hold planks
The next time you’re redecorating a room, look up and imagine how much style a tongue-and-groove ceiling could add.
