Ceiling Transition

6 posts in this topic

Hi-

I am in the process of putting in a ceiling with Armstrong 12x12 tiles and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on tranistioning that to another room with tiles of a much different pattern. The gap I will need to cover should be less than four inches and was thinking of just tacking in a stained narrow strip of wood. Any other thoughts? If it helps, I am attaching the tiles with furring strips so I do have something to attach the transistion to.

Thanks!!!

I'm not sure exactly the way your rooms are laid out or the style of house but you could consider using some wood and building a beam to cover the transition area. Then stain it to watch whatever wood work is already there. It might make it look like its part of the architecture of the house. It might depend on location of the beam and style of the house if it will look good and blend in but its another step up from just using a strip of wood.

You could simply build the beam by building a 3 sided box 4"x4"x4"x whatever the lenght is.

Just a thought anyways.

Go to a sheetmetal fabricator and have them bend you an angle the same size you need to cover. They can use a paint lock, or have them bend up a white. We do it all the time on commercial ceilings, and you don't notice it at all.

The wood will accent the change IMHO.

Two ways of going about it. Try to blend or celebrate it.

A picture of the entire area and a close up would help here. You said two rooms. Is this a door way or opening? Same ceiling height?

Depending on what condition the other ceiling is in you could do both. Or sheetrock both.

The room transitions from one to the other via a small hallway that already has ceiling tile as well. It is also at the same height. I like the previous ideas about creating a box. I'll give it a shot and see how it turns out.

Thanks!

Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.

    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
