The technique is also very useful in cases where the right foot is very high or when there are beams or apparent pipes. In this case, lowering the blanket will help hide the imperfections and keep everything in order with a flawless look. Lowering plaster is still useful for hiding curtain poles and drapes.

However, one of the main advantages of the suspended ceiling is the variety of possible lighting projects. By lowering the plaster, it is possible to introduce indirect light through the crown molding and thus create light traces and “wall wash” effects that can be translated as “light bath on the wall”. And that’s right. This type of installation makes it possible to direct the light along the entire length of the wall, to immerse it in light and to emphasize architectural details, structures and colors and to give the wall volume.
The plaster still has a high aesthetic value thanks to its smooth and homogeneous appearance, ideal to leave the most modern designs, cleans and elegant. In more modern designs, instead of the traditional frame, today the tabica is used, a finish for the lining that keeps a small distance between the ceiling and the wall.
However, if you prefer a more rustic, classic, or retro footprint, the option is to leave the lines directly to the side and use frames and details in curves.
