About Ceiling Tiles
With all the reasons to install drop ceiling tiles, including controlling sound from the floor above, one of the most common reasons is it gives an unfinished room or basement a finished look by covering up air-conditioning ducts, electrical wiring or suspended plumbing, at a relatively low cost. Upon securing the supportive grid work from above, pre-measured ceiling tiles can be dropped into place. For a brighter space, consider replacing a couple strategically selected ceiling panels with ceiling light panels. While nearly any type of lighting will shine well through the light panels, installing fluorescent light fixtures above them is a popular choice.
