Drop ceilings were the love child of the 70′s and 80′s when style clearly was not an issue. What better way to deal with wiring and venting but simply drop the ceiling to 7′ or even lower and just throw all the unsightly stuff into the little crawl space, genius idea and a never ending source of remodeling dilemmas for those having to deal with it today. Trouble is that, especially in condo construction some of the drop ceiling has to be left for just this purpose since relocating unsightly wires and recessed can lights is often not an option since the ceiling is often solid or simply too costly.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t raise at least a portion of it either by creating a soffit around the room’s perimeter in larger spaces or as In Detail have created here, a raised area to accomodate a rain head and recessed lighting. We love the tile accent which ties this small but impressive feature into the bath design.
Clever huh? More pictures follow.
We had to include this ‘before’ picture. We just thought you would enjoy it. But it is the after pictures that are really impressive.
Thank you Cheryl at In Detail Kitchen and Bath, not only for submitting this but also for having brought yet another 80′s bathroom into the new millennium.
