LANCASTER, Pa. (September 5, 2013) — Gone are the days of plain white drab ceilings, popcorn ceilings and even drywall. If you are looking for new ceiling ideas, you are in luck. Armstrong Residential Ceilings makes elegance for the home both achievable and affordable with Easy Elegance™ Coffered Ceiling Panels.
Coffers — dropped beams that crisscross a ceiling in a grid — are characteristic of traditional, often luxurious interiors. Their appeal lies in the architectural definition and visual interest they can add to a room. Although a classic coffered ceiling design features heavy millwork and even, ordered spacing, the design pros at Armstrong have come up with inventive, affordable ways to add effortless elegance to any space, whether you‘re looking for a dramatic fifth wall design or a practical option for basement ceilings.
Easy Elegance offers a classic coffered design at a fraction of the cost of custom ceiling work. Offered in either deep or shallow coffers profile, the ceiling tiles are available in a bright white as well as a bold black. Made of rigid PVC and available in two lightweight styles and two colors, the ceiling panels easily fit into a standard suspension system.
Installation of plastic coffered ceilings is easy enough for the weekend do-it-yourselfer and no room is off-limits for these coffered ceilings. For a high-end look, a drywall perimeter border is recommended, however, the product itself installs in a 24” x 24” easy-to-use grid system. Install or move lighting fixtures effortlessly with a simple replacement panel. The panels clean easily by lightly wiping with a damp cloth, and can be painted. Armstrong also offers a lifetime manufacturer’s limited warranty on Easy Elegance Coffered Ceiling Panels.
“One characteristic that makes plastic ceiling tiles a preferred ceiling option is their resistance to moisture, mold and mildew, so they’re perfect for basement or bathroom remodeling,” explains Lori Rowley, marketing manager, Armstrong Residential Ceilings. “The rigid PVC construction makes Easy Elegance tiles maintenance-free. And they’re simple to install, even for novice DIYers.”
If looks and other practical solutions aren’t enough of a reason to invest in a new ceiling, maybe more money in your pocket will do the trick. Residential ceilings can increase the value of your home, said Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Association of Realtors (NAR). “Your home is a significant investment and increasing the luxury look of it without breaking the bank, will increase your chances for a growing profit from the sale of your home.”
