23 Amazing Drop Ceiling Lighting Ideas For Every Space
Drop ceiling lighting is an interesting form of lighting fixtures, which all comes down to it being attached to the secondary ceiling that's mounted above the original one. Drop ceiling is also commonly known as a false ceiling or a suspended ceiling and it's a fairly recent trend in the real sense of the term. They are typically hung from the secondary ceiling joists directly above the room's ceiling joists. In order for drop ceiling lighting design ideas to work they need to be well-designed so they can be properly installed and not risk falling down due to faulty installation. They are designed using materials that make them highly resistant to corrosion, warping, shrinkage etc.
The drop ceiling lighting concept is nothing new but the drop ceiling lights of today are much more attractive than those of days gone by, especially the newer "floating" varieties that look almost like transparent domes. In order for such lights to work they need to have the proper connectors that attach the light to its mounting fixture, which of course would require a certain height. It also needs to be securely mounted on the ceiling at an appropriate height, which would vary according to each particular design requirement. With the modern designs, the connectors for the lights usually come pre-attached to the fixtures and they don't require any additional installation because they're already included. This makes for a much more streamlined look and also means you don't need to spend much time or money on the installation process.
There are many different styles of drop ceiling lighting, the most common being the hanging and standing varieties. In the hanging varieties, the drop ceiling lights usually take the form of a single long light that's suspended horizontally from two or more small hooks at the bottom of the hanging ceiling light fixture. These hooks then have a small "step" attached to the top, which allows the light to drop down and then cascade back up again as it hangs in the air once more. The standing variety of drop ceiling light allows for some creative designs, such as having the light mounted in such a way that it appears to have three different lighting levels, which would give a great impression of multiple levels of stairs if designed properly. Whichever type you choose, the end result will certainly impress any home owner.
