PVC Ceilings: Understanding their Characteristics

PVC Ceilings: Understanding their Characteristics

Ceilings are often overlooked when it comes to renovating a room, with many of us opting to simply paint them white. However, there are ways you can use your ceiling to add a surprising stylish element to a room. Using a different colour paint or creating a mural are ways to create an eye- catching ceiling. Another is to install PVC ceiling panels. If you have never considered PVC ceiling panels before, this blog will hopefully inspire you to at least contemplate them for your next renovation project.

What is a PVC Ceiling Panel?

A PVC ceiling panel is exactly that – a panel made from Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) which is designed to be installed on your ceiling, as an alternative to paint or wallpaper. They provide a stylish and professional finish to a room, in addition to be being 100% waterproof and extremely easy to look after.

Different Varieties of PVC Ceiling Panels

There is a vast variety of different styles and colours of PVC ceiling panels currently on the market. Here at National Plastics we offer the following, so you’re sure to find a style that blends beautifully with your home.


This is the most popular choice of ceiling panel and offers a traditional white finish to your ceiling. White panels add a sense of light and space, which makes them perfect for smaller rooms.

Marble effect

Our marble effect ceiling panels offer a truly opulent finish. These panels allow you to add a touch of class and finesse to your home, but without breaking the bank.

Stone effect

Stone effect ceiling panels create an eye-catching ceiling and allow you to create a seamless cohesive finish, as you can use the same panels on the walls.


Sparkle ceiling panels create the illusion of the night sky with many twinkling stars and are the perfect choice if you want to add a calming, relaxing ambience to your home.

Tile effect

These PVC ceiling panels allow you to install ‘tiles’ on your ceiling, without having to worry about weight.

Chrome strip

For a perfectly contemporary look and feel, our chrome stripe ceiling panels are the ideal choice.

Advantages of PVC Ceiling Wall Panels

We may be slightly biased, but we believe PVC ceiling panels have many advantages over the more traditional ceiling cover choices such as paint or wallpaper.


PVC ceiling panels are 100% waterproof. This makes them ideal for areas that experience high levels of condensation and humidity, such as bathrooms and kitchens. Being waterproof they create a cleaner, healthier environment for those in your home.

Cost effective

Whilst PVC ceiling panels may cost more initially than the more traditional options of paint or wallpaper, over their lifetime they will prove to be more cost effective. Unlike paint or wallpaper, ceiling panels will not bubble or crack when wet and they will not attract mould, all of which means they will last a very long time.


PVC ceiling panels are extremely durable and can withstand the rigours of everyday life. They will keep their looks far longer than paint or wallpaper, meaning your home will continue to look beautiful for many years to come.

Low maintenance

PVC ceiling panels require very little maintenance. A wipe clean with a damp cloth is all they need to keep them looking lovely. Also, they do not require any grout, so hours spent scrubbing mould are a thing of the past.


As mentioned above, ceiling panels come in myriad designs. This means there is sure to be a design which blends beautifully with the style of your home or allows you to create a look which is truly unique to you.

Easy to install

Lastly, PVC ceiling panels are very easy to install. Lightweight and easy to cut to size, you can install these ceiling panels without the help of a professional – and if you use National Plastic’s easy to follow step-by-step guide, it couldn’t be simpler.
