In today's houses we no longer have the luxury of high ceilings that they enjoyed in previous times, something that is greatly missed when hanging large paintings or suspension lamps, but especially when we need embed facilities To hide them from view.
In those cases, so that the ceiling lower than usual do not prove abhorrent, we can resort to an ingenious trick: lower it only partially, either through the entire perimeter, as we see in the image, or exclusively in the affected area. In this way, we can pass the smoke outlets in the kitchen or the air conditioning in bedrooms and living room without losing our sense of well-being.
Although plaster work is becoming less frequent, since unfortunately there are very few left-hand masters, it is worth remembering that for the subtracted height to be smaller, that is, just for the facilities, it is better to use laminated plasterboard instead of plaster. The latter needs much more space for anchors and handling.
