A stretch ceiling can brighten up a bedroom, give a more spacious feel to a living room and make a dining room feel grand. They are also highly popular in commercial settings, such as a restaurant, a beauty clinic or even an office. The cost of a stretch ceiling will depend on the amount of PVC film used and the texture desired. As you would expect, a single design on one ceiling will cost less than the price to install PVC film on every ceiling in your property.
