Ceiling Drywall: Things to Consider

Learn about alternatives to ceiling drywall and why a decorative ceiling works with any look you want to achieve.

Before and After: Drywall Ceilings

A white drywall ceiling has no style or impact. It's flat, plain, and boring. If you're planning a complete room renovation, think about your ceiling as the "fifth wall" in your room.

A decorative ceiling can enhance your room design and coordinate with your colors and furniture. Today there is a range of ceilings to match interior décors - from contemporary to traditional and farmhouse to urban. So, are you going to settle for flat and boring or go for stunning and stylish?


Why Choose a Decorative Ceiling

  • Ceiling styles to match any décor
  • Easy to change visuals
  • Faster and cleaner installation
  • May reduce noise
  • May resist mold and mildew
  • May offer accessibility to pipes, duct work, and wiring (drop ceilings)
  • Easy to repair and replace damaged or stained tiles

The Downside of Drywall

  • No style
  • Heavy and bulky
  • Requires at least 2 people to move and lift into place
  • Dusty installation that gets everywhere
  • Does not help to reduce or control sound levels
  • Does not allow access above the ceiling
  • Costly and difficult to fix damaged drywall
