Here’s a quick lowdown on how you can use POP in your bedroom. Read this to know more about the latest POP designs.
POP or Plaster of Paris has been for centuries now. It is a compound made from a powdered mineral called gypsum that was found abundantly around the city of Paris and hence the name. Artisans use POP to design statues, cornices, interior mouldings and more as it does not contract after drying. It is also inexpensive and easy to work with.
POP is popular in the world of medicine and most of us have seen it in the form of casts to hold in place a fractured bone or Ganesh Idols that are submerged during the Ganesh Chaturthi. POP has now found space of its own in the home interior industry with false ceiling designs, mouldings, wall panels in 3D and more. They are cost-effective, lightweight, fire-resistant and can be moulded into intricate and ornate shapes/ designs.
POP Ceiling Designs
POP is the choice of material to design any type of false ceiling be it for a bedroom, living rooms, dining rooms or kitchen. They are lightweight and are ideal for ceilings as weight is a key consideration when it comes to design elements inbuilt into a home at such a height. The relative strength of POP to its weight is an advantage as it does not require major modification to the existing load-bearing characteristics of the walls, columns and beams.
POP can be moulded into fluid and organic shapes with relative ease. This allows you to experiment with complex shapes that overlap or delicate floral pieces like rosettes and crown mouldings that are elegant.
Some of the popular ceiling designs are
- Plain ones with recessed lighting at the edges and spotlights for a clean and minimal look
- False ceilings with cove lighting that is extremely popular among modern homeowners
- False ceilings with intricate geometric patterns custom-designed for each room
- Ceiling designs with CNC cut steel, aluminium, copper or bronze panels backed on frosted acrylic that lights up for a luxurious look
- False ceilings that use wooden rafters and woodwork elements with POP designs
All these ceiling designs are thanks to the versatility of POP that allows designers and homeowners to design and experiment limited only by their imagination.
