Ceiling Roses and Domes
What is Ceiling Rose?
Ceiling Rose (rosette/centre/medallion) is a decorative element which is attached to the ceiling, and it usually has affixed light or chandelier in the centre. Historically Ceiling Centres were affixed to the ceilings to protect ceilings from charring and heat caused by gas lights and candles as ceiling roses were cheaper and easier to re-decorate than an entire ceiling. Typically, rosettes are round/oval shapes and present a huge range of patterns and ornamental designs which have been influenced by different architectural styles such as Victorian, Edwardian, Roman, Art Deco and others. Ceiling Roses are decorative ceiling elements, and they shouldn’t solely support light fixtures, for that occasion it’s better to install a supporting member before affixing a ceiling rose. In order to choose the desired ceiling rose, please take into consideration your room size and style ensuring they match. To enlarge any ceiling rose diameter, it is possible to use a plaster ring which surrounds a ceiling centre.
