Read on to learn a little more about the possibilities...

Walls and Partitions

Many renovations involve removing walls to open a space up, but you can actually create more usable space by having a partition wall put in. Rather than leaving a television or sofa marooned in the middle of a large living room, for example, consider erecting a plasterboard partition to back it--you can have a plug socket installed to limit trailing wires and give yourself a great deal of extra wall space to hang things on. You can also have gap shelves installed so that the wall can be seen through, or you can create lit shelves and alcoves to improve your room's mood lighting. The possibilities are endless; consider the impact that something like this curved wall with lit alcoves could have in your home.

Decorative Cornicing

Plasterboard decorations add texture, depth and variety to any wall or ceiling in your home. You could look at traditional rosette designs and the like if they fit with your style. They can look wonderful painted in modern colours and used as a way to make an open space feel more ornate if you're not interested in traditional styling for them. There are hundreds of ways to use this kind of cornicing, though: Look into swirled and geometric patterns to add a feature that stands out.

Remodelled Ceilings

Ceilings are often the most neglected part of any interior redecoration plan, but that's a great shame--they have the ability to completely alter the look and feel of a room. Consider using plasterboard to change the angles of an archway and mould it into the ceiling above, for example, or to make your lighting work for you in new and innovative ways. Even something as simple as using textured plasterboard to replace a previously plain ceiling with something a little more decorative can make an enormous difference to the look and feel of your space.
