From top to bottom, our homes are filled with small details constituting what makes a house a home. Reflected ceiling plans offer builders the chance to make sure all details are right before putting their ideas in action, so your home is best suited for your needs. 

Why is a reflected ceiling plan important?

A reflected ceiling plan is a fundamental component of the home design process, as it provides the viewpoint of the ceiling of every room as if you were observing it from above.

 It helps builders have proper linearity for floor plans and helps vendors to get a solid idea of where fixtures will be installed. 

In addition to linearity and fixtures, the plan details mounts, smoke detectors, building materials and much more. 

What are the components of a reflected ceiling plan?

A ceiling plan is composed of details such as height, bulkheads, building materials (for example: if paneling is natural wood), and more. 

For example, a porch or sunroom ceiling plan may include details such as if it will have fiber cement beadboard panels or tongue and groove boards. It may also include details such as the shade of the porch ceiling, fan placement, and how everything ties into the outdoor living space. 

What can I use for an outdoor ceiling?

Porch ceilings can be made of numerous materials, with quality exterior grade plywood and fiber cement panels being very popular choices. Choosing high-quality paint with moisture resistance is a must. 

You can also use painted wood, tin roofing, vinyl and many other materials depending on the appeal you’re going for. 

No matter your ceiling ideas, it’s best to consult a local professional who can lay out a good reflected ceiling plan to make sure your ideas can come to life in the best way possible.
