Work Around Fixtures and Vent Openings

Roughly halfway across the ceiling, a rhythm will start to take place and the installation will move increasingly faster. Once any air vents or junction boxes are reached, mark wood flooring planks with pencil and cut to size with chop saw or using jigsaw. Once ceiling is completely covered, re-install air vents and light fixtures.

Tip: For a seamless look, consider spray-painting air vents a similar color as the wood ceiling planks.

The Finished Product

That's it! This project will add a high-end look to a previously builder-basic ceiling.
