Application ceiling wallpaper has a lot of features - at the stage of selection, and label them.We will touch on the main stages of this work, we will mention possible problems and their solutions, and in the end see the video - Wallpapering the ceiling with his hands will be demonstrated clearly.
How to prepare for wallpapering the ceiling?
- Armed with a steel spatula, completely removes all the bumps and irregularities.The ceiling was whitewashed with lime or chalk?Whitewashing also scraped up plaster.
Tip: work will go faster, and the dust will be much less if the pre-wet the ceiling with water by spray or roller.
- If the room is damp and / or has appeared fungus - treat the ceiling surface antiseptic primer.It not only kills mold but also to prevent its occurrence in the future.
budget option - the use of any chlorine-containing cleaning fluid.It does not provide, of course,
- next step - the use of penetrating primer.It will make the surface of the ceiling is much stronger, which is important for the label heavy wallpaper.In addition, the soil will greatly improve the adhesion (adhesion) of the ceiling with the adhesive layer, and at the same time reduce the consumption of glue (see. Ceiling paintable wallpaper - a beautiful version of the registration).
- Preparing to wallpapering the ceiling must include all significant irregularities putty. degree of alignment depends on the type of wallpaper that if non-woven embossed disguise minor irregularities, the glossy vinyl, on the contrary, they emphasize .
In the latter case, the surface must be perfectly smooth.If you are new to the finishing putty ceiling is better to use as wide a trowel (see. What initially suspended ceiling or wallpaper glue should - step by step instructions).
- If the surface roughness remains visible eye, strips, tabs, better not to be lazy and sanded them.Tool - grater with sand mesh or grinder.
- Finally, proshpaklevat areas re-primed primer (penetrating primer).After it dries everything is ready for Wallcovering.
What will it take?
And indeed whether any special conditions or tools?Something else ?
- Invite your partner.One to do the job extremely uncomfortable, and the results are likely to disappoint.
- Prepare roller on a long handle.Apply glue brush from the bottom up much harder and slower.Type of roller coat is unimportant;However, the longer the nap - the more he gets glue at a time.
- a soft cloth to help smooth out the wallpaper and expel air bubbles.
- simplest forest or tall, long table, the laid polyethylene repeatedly simplify your work.Moving the ladder or stool dozen times in the label of each band a bit tedious.
- Finally, dissolve the wallpaper paste.Consistency - much thicker than usual.Ceiling wallpaper glue with liquid adhesive is difficult, if subtle wallpaper, and can not be thick and heavy wallpaper: they will simply fall.
Stripes wallpaper glued towards the window, so natural light is not made visible joints between the stripes.Begin by standing with the wall-ceiling joint .
- Roulette is measured by the length of the strip.
- cut strips of wallpaper.
- She smeared glue width of the ceiling.Do not wallpaper, it is the ceiling so much easier to glue.
- When glued one end of the strip;while teammate holds a second edge tautly controlling correct location relative to the previous bands or wall.
- then glued on the edges smoothed cloth wallpaper.If the band is the result turned out to be a little longer - do not worry, the excess trimmed with a sharp knife.
- Last strip cut out not only in length but also in width.Take the time to measure the necessary bandwidth in both corners of the room: the walls are not necessarily parallel.
ceiling wallpaper glue requires taking into account a number of nuances .
- As already mentioned, thick wallpaper with embossed pattern conceal minor surface defects.But sticking vinyl wallpaper on the ceiling requires not only putty irregularities, but pre-grinding.
- wallpaper glued butt strictly.There are no overlaps.If the band will go at each other - a side light ceiling will look awful.
- Under Wallcovering nor during drying glue drafts unacceptable .
Tip: at this time it is better to ensure a constant temperature and humidity in the room.Close all windows and doors.During drying, the humidity in the room will be very high, so the drying can be delayed for two or even three days.However it is better to suffer an extra day than glue wallpaper fallen.
- gap between the wallpaper and the wall will hide the ceiling moldings.He, too, adheres only after complete drying of wallpaper (see. Non-woven wallpaper for the ceiling: decorative properties and characteristics).
- bright colors make the ceiling visually higher.However, they again made a significant any surface defects.The same effect is achieved by gloss.
- wallpaper for painting vodoemulsionkoy better to paint, acrylic, acrylic latex or silicone based.These types of paints do not smell and give resistant to moisture and abrasion resistant surface that can be cleaned with a normal sponge and soapy water.
draw your attention to one caveat.If you have to align the surface of the ceiling - perhaps it makes sense to stay on the normal painting?The result in most cases, at least no worse than the Wallcovering, as time and money will go much lower.
