Headroom or Clearance

Some false ceilings need more headroom than the others do, so it’s vital to calculate the height of the room before installation. Generally a room has a height of ceiling is 8-10 feet. You can measure the headroom space for ceiling by using a thin layer of plywood or mark the point on wall up to which you wish the ceiling to end.
