3 Advantages of Plank Ceilings

Learn about the advantages of a plank ceiling - from charming visuals to easy installation.

When used as an architectural detail, plank ceilings help define a space, often becoming the focal point of a room by introducing visual texture and subtle contrast.

1) Planks Stay in Place

The tongue-and-groove edges on each ceiling plank have a groove cut and a protruding tongue shape that forms a beveled “V” joint when joined to adjacent planks. This interlocking edge detail minimizes the appearance of gaps during normal expansion and contraction.


2) Add Character

You can also make a one-of-a-kind-statement by selecting a wood ceiling plank finish that matches your style. With textures that range from rustic knotty pine and weathered driftwood to classic maple, you can create a textured yet clean look. If warm finishes aren't your style, try one of three white plank options that are available.


3) Easy Installation

Ceiling planks are easy to install and make a great weekend project for DIYers. No need for nails or glue – these ceilings install directly to ceiling joists or drywall with the Easy Up track and clip system, or in some installations, using the clips and screws included in the carton. Another great option - cover up an old, outdated 15/16" drop ceiling using Armstrong WoodHaven Planks and Easy Up clips.
