Before you detailed instructions on how to make the suspended ceiling in the living room with his hands.
Installation of suspended cei
lings in the living room.
for the start of the installation work should be prepared.
Tools and materials

First of all you must choose a method for the ceiling mount.Tension ceilings for the living room or can be mounted harpoon bezgarpunnym method.This method of attachment to the baguette.
Baguette is the profile that is attached to the wall:
- Harpoon manufactured exactly to the dimensions of the room and on the edge of the perimeter of a special latch to solder - a harpoon.These ceilings can be removed and re-mounted.Installation is delaying the harpoon into the hole until it clicks into the profile.
- Bezgarpunnye ceilings in the living room are mounted in two ways, depending on the shape of the room.Glazing beads and cloth short wedge into the groove of baguette, pinching it.This is the most inexpensive and simple method of attachment, which causes most of its prevalence and popularity.
Here also there are a few points that are very important:
Warning: Fillet - is only suitable for rectangular rooms.The cloth is taken larger edges are cut off.
Wedge - for shapes with curves and roundness.Just taken a larger canvas.
- first and most important task is to determine the lowest level of the ceiling .It is no secret that even the ceiling of the new building in the elite, not to mention the individual building, is rarely perfectly flat.
water level is done.Typically, the lower level is determined by the angles.
- After the lower layer is found, step even lower than 5 cm. This control is accurate zero.
- With the construction level do the transfer of the zero point and mark up the perimeter.
next step is to install the ceiling mount base - PVC moldings.It secures a baguette canvas, so it should be fixed perfectly straight.
Sometimes, of course baguette attached with some curves, but only if it is a design decision.So
- In line level zasverlivayutsya holes fast installation.
- Baguette fast installation fastened every 10 cm.
- on joints flush.It is necessary to prepare in advance a baguette the size of the room: cut at 45 degrees angles at the joints.
And one internal angle, the second outer.So you minimize sharp edges that can damage the fabric.
- Just joints and corner joints.If you have provided lighting for the leaf, then now it is necessary to separate the wiring for them.
Tension vaulted ceiling
If you decide to do the ceilings in the living room (sm.Gipsokarton ceilings), get ready for the next step.It is working with gas or heat gun.
Specificity ceiling installation of PVC is that they must be heated to 60-65 degrees before installation and work in a room where the temperature is less than 40 degrees. What is it?
PVC film, stretched hot during cooling samonatyagivaetsya forming a perfect mirror.
Heat gun in a stretch ceilings
Be prepared to work with open flame and make sure the maximum fire safety.Although combustion occurs in the trunk of a gun, if you are as close to its flammable objects, will be trouble.
The gun has an electric fan is installed so that the required temperature is reached very quickly.So
- After warming up the room, and unwind the film from a distance of about 2.5-3 meter heat it.The hot film from the base or mount the mounting angle, it is marked on a roll.
- If you have provided lighting or a chandelier, make small punctures in the web, print wires.Do not use light bulbs, more powerful 50 W, they can deform the sheet by heating it and forming a stretch.
Mounting ceiling is as follows:
- Pull the corners of the film diagonal, using angled suspenders.
- If you choose harpoon mounting, then please create a harpoon into the slot and snap.
- If you choose shtapikovy or V-mount option, get a web edge and snap into the groove, thereby holding the web.If you remain hanging from the edge - it does not matter, they then can be cut.
- All this time, heat gun should blow on the film. Best of all, this process prodelyvat together.That the entire surface of the film was heated evenly.
Attention: Tighten the film as much as you can, but at the same time be careful not to damage it, or not do, "Hood" - defects which are eliminated and no cause canvas into disrepair.
- Now that the web is strained, turn off the gun and wait for the room to cool down and PVC film and get perfectly smooth, stretched like a string ceiling.Fixtures are mounted on special clips (sm.Montazh fixtures in stretch ceilings - you can do it yourself).
In general, do not recommend lighting or chandeliers in the web.It is better to do them on the walls or in oil paint box as the photo:
final stage, this sticking of the foam moldings on the edge of the ceiling.This is done in order to mask the junction of the ceiling and walls.
Baguette just glued to the wall.Before this assembly carefully cut off with a knife hanging from the ends of the fabric.So
- to measure the perimeter of the room and prepare the baguette as long as necessary.
- Avoid joints in the middle, if you can not avoid them, do not make them straight, trim the edges at an angle similar to the mounting prints.
- After baguette glued and glue frozen, take the water-based paint, dilute it with water, so it was not too thick, and enter into it a little finishing putty. So you hide from view and baguette foam structure will look like plaster moldings.
Note: Usually a baguette on a special adhesive glue or liquid nails, but craftsmen working professional, glue prints on the plaster finish, which always remains after any repair.
Sizing seam baguette
