Thinking repairs in bathrooms, it is necessary to choose such materials and methods of finishing, which differ moisture resistance.Experts believe that the most durable and at the same aesthetic in the bathroom ceiling - mounted.
There are many different types of curtain systems, but for installation in the bathroom, you can use only those who are water-resistant and all mounting structure, and facing materials.
Types false ceilings
Rack Rack ceiling is an aluminum panel with a decorative coating of different colors and textures.Due to the small thickness, these panels easily cut and bent , are lightweight, and therefore allow you to create a variety of spatial structures.Suspended ceiling in the bathroom of the aluminum slats - one of the most expensive options finish, but its cost is justified superb views, ease of installation (and removal if necessary), resistant to damp environment and durability.In the picture at the beginning of the article, you can see an examp
Tiled false ceilings
Tile hinged design for the bathroom is a skeleton, which is collected in a grid.In each cell of a lattice are put tiles of various materials.Tiles can be :
- of glass;
- SLR (see. Mirrored panels on the ceiling);
- made from hard or soft mineral fiber;
- of waterproof plasterboard, etc.
reference.The most well-known manufacturer in this segment of the market - the US firm "Armstrong", so many people all tiled ceiling and called, assuming that he can only be used in public buildings.
Among all types of plates type «Armstrong» , made from mineral fiber, to be installed in the bathroom only suitable moisture .It is composed of silicone additives, and she Plate size 60x60 cm is capable of at the top leakage absorb to 17 kg of liquid .But its main advantage lies in the fact that after drying stove receives original shape and volume .tak manner embodiment tile value depends on the material from which the manufactured tiles, and its functional properties.
Plastic hinged design
PVC panels are also very often used to finish ceilings.After whitewashing is the cheapest way to make a qualitative and beautiful renovation.However, budgetary this option does not imply that the false ceiling in the bathroom, made of plastic panels, will look cheap.
PVC Ceiling panels presented in such a variety that choose the appropriate color and the texture is not difficult.They can be self-colored matte or glossy, patterned and can simulate different surfaces.For example, skin or ceramic tile.
Installation of suspended ceilings
As you know, suspended ceilings because so called, that the decorative surface is not adjacent to the base, as it were suspended on the frame.That sounds quite serious, but in fact such a device designs - it's not very complicated.Anyway, to make a small area in the bathroom ceiling mounted, if desired, can any man.
Before purchasing the material necessary to make careful measurements to acquire the necessary equipment for wall structures.They are necessary in order to determine the dimensions of building materials and ensure a minimum of waste.Number of aluminum slats (see. How to choose aluminum ceilings to the bathroom) or plastic panels will depend on their width and direction of laying.For example, if your bathroom has a width of 280 cm and a length of 350 cm, is more economical to lay panel along the short wall.Since the length of the rack is 3 or 4 meters, and the standard length of plastic panels ceiling - 6 meters.Thus, you do not have to do the joints or cut off from the entire panel of nearly half of its length.If this is the case with the plates easier, as they tend to have a square shape.
electrical and ventilation work
Suspended ceiling has one disadvantage: it reduces the overall height of the room due to the frame .But it is possible to consider his dignity as the interval you can hide the duct leading to the vents, set the fan and lights.All related works to finish before mounting hinged design.
device mounted systems
Attention!Before you make a false ceiling in the bathroom, it is necessary to process the surface of the base of the ceiling antiseptic.It is also desirable to make it waterproof.
Regardless of the hinged design, the algorithm works on its installation one: first, the frame is made, then it is fixed facing, which are inserted in the course of mounting fixtures, ventilation and other design elements.
- device for the ceiling frame of the plastic panels are mounted on the main surface of the metal profiles in steps of 50 cm. If the base is very uneven ceiling, for mounting using suspensions.If the difference in terms of the small, the profile can be mounted directly to the ceiling on long dowel-nails clogging them up as long as the profile will not rise in the level.
plastic panels bolted to the desired length profile short screws, the next panel is inserted into the groove of the previous one.
- device for suspended ceilings (see. Rack for the bathroom ceiling with his hands), there are special guides in the form of a comb .They are made of galvanized steel or aluminum, for each type of rails.Aluminum panels (rail) is not necessary to fasten to the rails - it snaps into tabs comb when lightly pressed.If necessary, repair the wiring or replace the lamp rack and can be easily removed.
frame for plastic and suspended ceilings is parallel carrier profiles , set perpendicular to the cladding.
- somewhat different looks frame for ceiling tile .Metal slats are combined in a modular lattice, in the context of similar to an inverted T. horizontal shelves mounted frame and stacked tiles.
fix them additionally there is no need, so they can be easily removed if required.If your ceiling is made of tiles of different colors, you can change their position at will, making the band, chess cells or placing in a chaotic manner.
