The benefits of baffle ceilings are endless, but no one really stops to consider the fact they can work for so many different spaces. Listed below are six ways baffle ceilings can help you.
1. Good acoustics themselves create benefits:
- Noise reduction
- Less distraction-more production
- Reduce mistakes you make because you can hear and pay attention
- Big, open spaces become more personable (such as a busy restaurant)
2. Not a lot of renovating involved to include them in your space
Do you want something that will create an atmosphere in your space, but you don’t want to completely tear apart and rework everything from top to bottom? Baffle ceilings don’t require a complete remodel of your space– they work with virtually anything. It could be any existing ceiling: T-bar, concrete slab, steel deck, or web joists.
If you’re attempting that modern open ceiling look, one drawback is that it must be made visibly attractive. It can be a big cost to fix up what’s hiding behind those old ceiling tiles and make it presentable. Baffle ceilings cut this cost out; instead of spending a large amount of money on trying to make those pipes and wires look modern and spacious, baffles will have the look you want but cost less.
4. Visually appealing – attractive space
The world thrives on visuals as we progress. You need to be up to date for people to believe you have what they want. Have you ever walked past a restaurant and looked inside and thought, “I would never eat there,” simply because you don’t like the way it looks inside? This works for any place, not just restaurants. If you don’t like the way it looks, it can affect your decision to go inside a place or buy things from them. Creating an attractive space in today’s world says so much about who you are and what you’re trying to accomplish.
5. Creating a vibe in the space
An important factor is creating a ‘feel’ or ‘vibe’ within your space, and ensuring it is a positive one. You don’t want to be surrounded in a space that has no life and appears that the clock stopped in 1999. Tying into the visually appealing aspect (mentioned above), people are happier when they are in a place that looks good. The environment you’re in has so much impact on your mood. Why create a space where no one is happy to be?
6. Highlight a special area – give it, its ‘own’ space
Baffles can command attention to a specific spot that would be otherwise lost in a large space. Making it stand out on its own, instead of being consumed by its surroundings. This could be a café within a large grocery store; suddenly it feels like a ‘room’ standing alone, bringing a certain level of uniqueness.
Everyone has their own ideal of what they find ‘attractive’. Though as the world moves on people are becoming more attracted to modern spaces that promote happiness, positivity, and growth. Ceiling baffles help place a modern spin on your space, which can boost concentration, visuals, and mood.
