suspended ceiling plasterboard - one of the least expensive, difficult to install and has low maintenance kind of finish.Presented today projects plasterboard ceilings are so diverse that some of them will find an option for themselves as conservatives, and fans of exotic.
In addition, the price of the material is not too high, to allow such a design can afford a lot.Drywall - demanding to the conditions of humidity of the material, so it can be installed in all rooms except bathrooms, pools and saunas.
But even there it can be installed, only it must be moisture-resistant.Perfectly smooth surface of the drywall can be obtained to comply with all recommendations made by the Assembly.
Benefits ceiling plasterboard
- Quick and easy installation with your hands, do not require special skills;
- design can be made as a single-level and multi-level;
- Ability to create any form of plasterboard ceilings, which correspond to the overall design of the room;
- Environmental safety, which is only natural origin of material (plaster + cardboard);
- Durability finish.
Before you start production of plasterboard ceiling, you need an accurate diagram of the desired result.For best effect, it is best to buy a ready-made project from design specialists.
designer can choose exactly the number of levels, shapes, colors that will be optimal for a particular room.
necessary to remember some of the nuances:
- Rectangular plasterboard ceilings - universal version, they are suitable for any room;
- For narrow spaces well suited square plasterboard, which will help to highlight some areas of the room;
- perfectly round shape of the center of the room will provide , especially where there will be a round table;
- oval or curved plasterboard will make any room visually higher;
- especial flavor room give flowers plasterboard ceiling.
Tip!The lower the ceiling in a room, the lower the levels of plasterboard should be done visually reduce the massive construction and so little space.
Texture plasterboard surface
Here you have only three options: glossy, matte, or mixed.So
- gloss can be obtained using a conventional gloss paint, which will be on the plasterboard perfectly (see: How do paint the ceiling plasterboard - repair all the rules).
- If you do not want to face the glare giving, it is best to use special matte colors that blend with plasterboard better than glossy.
- Mixed obtained by painting a glossy or matte paint different levels or patterns.
Lighting ceiling plasterboard
successfully chosen lighting fixtures accentuate the grandeur and individuality of design.The most suitable option for the ceiling plasterboard - LED, spot or raster fixtures.
How to make flower or any other piece of plasterboard
flower - one of the most complex forms, you can create with their hands on the ceiling. Guide is based on the manufacture of plasterboard in the flower nursery.
- create a drawing, indicating the size of the main (lines leading plasterboard ceilings - what is needed).It is important not so much artistic ability as spatial imagination and the ability to move our plans from the head to the paper.
If this tight, it is better to take the finished project.
- We transfer the sketch on the work plane.The basis could be the first layer of drywall or plaster surface.
Wrap sketch of the ceiling in three ways:
- with a compass draw several circles of different diameters, which will be mounting.The compass can be done independently of a piece of the profile, pencil and screw;
- With grid - the ceiling is done in compliance with the proportions of the grid.At certain intersections do points that are interconnected to form a pattern;
- method for artists - draw a sketch by hand to the eye.For people who do not have special artistic talent, perfect asymmetrical patterns that have the power to draw even a child.
Tip!Drawing can be done with the projector or laptop.
Mount skeleton from galvanized profile
frame it will be required if you plan to create a figure of light.
Installation is performed as follows:
- Fasten profile CD vertically along the contour of the figure, retreating from the ceiling plate thickness.To easily bent profile, it is necessary to make an incision along the entire length of a regular interval.
- Mounting is performed to the frame of the first level of the ceiling with screws or to the slab by means of screws with plastic plugs.
- Mounting is performed in increments of 40 cm.
Ideal horizontal surface is obtained by constantly checking each step of mounting a horizontal building levels.So
- hemming and produce drywall finishing: shpaklyuem, sizing and color seams.
- sheathes frame plasterboard not difficult, the main thing is to keep the flow of screws (stride length).By creating a highly complex structure, can not save, if you do not want to figure out the drywall on the ceiling paused briefly.
Average consumption of screws - 100 pieces per sheet of drywall is in increments of 25 mm.For complex designs step be reduced to 15 mm.
- between sheets of drywall, and at the junction of the wall is necessary to leave the seams of a few millimeters, which are then filled in with putty, it will reduce the likelihood of cracking.
- If you are going to sheathe figure on the edge of the vertical strip of drywall, you can use a special, arch, gypsum board, which is better than oppression.If there is no, you can strip that is already cut to size, lightly moisten it becomes easier to bend, and when dry, will retain the shape.
- If bend must be strong, it is best to make an incision on the outside lane, then cuts will have to putty.
- finishing the ceiling is not different from the standard: the seams are glued paper tape or are coated finish putty, and then the entire surface is primed for painting.
Features the ceiling painting and drawing
If you choose to create an unusual relief pattern on the ceiling drywall, then it is better to paint in a different color, it will look more beautiful than the monochrome option.But
vertical surface is not much better to allocate, on the contrary, it is better not to use contrasting colors, not very different from each other.Optimally - a couple of colors.
How to create a square or rectangular plasterboard
- correct geometric shapes to create much easier than asymmetric or shaped, for example.
- When you create a sketch and transfers it to the surface does not necessarily have artistic talent, enough to arm construction ruler and pencil.With these two tools, you can create a square, rectangle, diamond and other shapes with straight sides.
- mounting frame should be implemented on a pre-made layout (drawing or sketch) in the same way as in the case with a flower, just cut the profile of the CD is not needed, it will be mounted on flat lines.
- If you are going to use a profile on the suspension, the contour of the need to drill holes every 25-40 mm and insert them anchors for direct hangers, then fasten them.On the surface, keeping step anchoring hangers.
- Now fasten the profiles vertical hangers.On the profiles can be fixed already structure.
- Mounting profiles is carried out at the edges first, then the profile can be fixed to the suspension. Side suspensions, it should be to bend a certain distance to a perfect horizontal.
Fastening profiles to suspension
Guide profiles in this design are not used, because it does not start from the walls, and at a certain distance from them. sure, fastening profiles and drywall hangers in the profiles, do not forget to check the surface of the horizontal level, any deviation of even a few degrees can disrupt the entire structure.
drywall carried out exactly as in the case with a picture of a flower.Follow step 25 mm between the screws, you can reduce, if the structure is complicated.
side surface of the structure is also closed strips of drywall.Finishing is performed as well as the "flower", the recommendations are similar to the color.
If you have any difficulties during installation, you can always watch the video from the professionals, then everything will become clear.
