All About Different Types of Ceilings In Australia

There are many types of ceilings available in the marketplace. Some of them are:

1. Timber ceiling

Timber ceilings are also one of the best ceilings to install. You can easily install the ceiling like wood baffles in Australia with the help of professionals.

2. Tray Ceiling

Tray ceilings are multi-level ceilings – they start from one height, then drop as you add levels. As the name suggests, the ceiling layout resembles a tray. The flat ceiling on the outside of the tray surrounds the raised center, which is the highest part of the ceiling. 

Tray ceilings (also known as panned ceilings) become slightly lower with each added step or “level” that surrounds the raised center, creating a three-dimensional effect as the ceiling expands outwards.

These ceilings can add a dramatic effect to a space and also make a room seem taller. Panned ceilings typically have two to three levels, with each level dropping between 5 and 11 inches below the level above. You can add trim or molding as a fascia in between the layers.

3. Cathedral Ceiling

Cathedral ceilings are often found in large living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, and even the master bath. Cathedral – or vaulted – ceilings are known for their inverted V-shape, where the tip of the V is the highest point and the sides of the V slope down.

4. Shed ceiling

Shed, or single-slope, ceilings are typically found on the top story of a home, either in the attic or loft.  Creating a distinct look for your room, a shed ceiling will begin at a high point at one wall, then slope down toward the opposite wall.

In commercial architecture, the shed ceiling mirrors a shed roof structure.  It also offers designers a great deal of flexibility. Wood ceilings can also be suspended on a slope using a standard suspension grid if the main runners are positioned down the slope.
