But is it accurate? Pedant Ren thinks "on" is better for floors and under or beneath for ceilings.  ::)

It actually looks to me like it is mounted on chipboard flooring. Or is that some special effect that has taken over from Artex swirls?

Artex stippling -  I have similar design on my upstairs ceilings courtesy of Barratts.

You may be right, ref Artex stipples.   Actually I was taught to do that once in order to repair a damaged ceiling in my very first home.   Advice in artex in from a professional decorator, in exchange for beer in the pub across the road. :graduate:

Istr it involved dabbing and pulling with a sponge, wrapped up in a plastic carrier bag.  Maybe harder these days, when old-fashioned “proper” carrier bags are not so easy to find?

I was somewhat amused by the statement on the edge of the alarm.  :D

Interesting observation.   And doubtless it is accurate, I’d not expect such a device to work unless provided with power from either an internal battery or a mains supply, or some other source.

But I’d also stress the double negative which avoids any implication that it will ever work, even with a power source?   ::)

When we moved to our current house in '02, there were two boilers in the kitchen; one in a corner and another under the sink.
Both were removed on installation of a new kitchen for a combi. Where the boiler pierced the ceiling looks a mess, as the making good is not as neat as the original, so maybe a less elegant stipple has its merits. It's fascinating though, lying in bed with missus trying to make out, where the man started his efforts.

Well at 80+ I have to find something to do, lying in bed with the missus! :D

@jelv,

Of interest, where exactly did you spot it?

Tbh I suspected such as, on searching, I found it other places too.   Without wanting to be too much of a killjoy, I hope you are sure that no copyrights were infringed by reposting on kitz?
