I am soon moving into a 1950's ex-council house and the ceiling in the living room has two beams running accross it - breaking the ceiling into 3 sections. The current owner tells me they are concrete boxed in to look tidier.
Can I remove all trace of them from site and have a completely smooth and uninterupted ceiling?
Can this be achieved by replacing them with lower profile modern steels? Any other ideas?
A mate suggested I board over them and lose a couple of inches of ceiling height but I am not a fan of this option.
