In most respects this is a typical bedroom star ceiling, but it’s noteworthy by virtue of a relatively high star density. Our customer Andy S wanted to decorate a nursery with dimensions of 3.2 x 2.4 metres, and in terms of fibre lengths the Orion kit was a good choice for the project.
However, he wanted to incorporate some star sign constellations in the star layout, and after some discussion we agreed that a custom kit with additional fibres would be appropriate. So, although the lengths of his fibre harness were the same as the standard Orion kit ( 1.5 to 2.5 metres) the number of fibres was doubled to 240, giving a very respectable star density for a room of this size. The additional fibres added £50 to the price.
The installation was fairly standard, with Andy drilling holes in the ceiling and then popping up into the loft to thread the fibres through from above. He didn’t relish the actual task, or the irritation caused by the fibre glass insulation which had to be temporarily moved out of the way, but the final result proved the effort worthwhile.
“I must say the pictures don’t do it justice at all, as both me and my wife are totally over the moon with the final outcome,” he told us.
