ceiling tiles in the kitchen is sometimes the only solution in the decoration of the plane.Especially if the humidity in the room, then little can and apply.
Tiles can protect the surface from excess moisture.In this article, we describe how attached the ceiling tiles in the kitchen.
Nowadays, many people choose this type of finish.Kitchen, a source of moisture, there you are working with water, this can add a dishwasher.Some
set in the room washing machine.So you need to think carefully about how to make the repair of the ceiling in the kitchen.
As with any job, this begins with the preparation.
necessary to acquire the necessary tools:
- capacity , in which to prepare the adhesive mixture.This may be a bucket or a best fit of the plastic bucket under dry mixture.It is most appropriate to do batch;
- comb metal spatula ;
- rubber spatula , which will help to seal the seams;
- small rubber mallet ;
- Tile Bulgarian or a cutting wheel;
- Rake with a smooth edge.
tile fits well on a flat surface, which should be properly prepared.
If you have a smooth ceiling and does not require further processing, then simply clean the surface from paint, wash whitewash (see: How do wash whitewash from the ceiling with the least effort).This can be done with a brush metal.
After that it is necessary to sweep away the dust and cover it with a layer of soil.Which should be given time to dry and only then you can start to work.
- If you have a flat surface is not enough, and requires additional processing, to begin to determine the thickness of coating on the ceiling. To do this, define the lowest corner of the room and determine the level of hydraulic assistance finding the ceiling;
- If necessary layer to one cm. You can just spend the alignment with the help of putty.If the layer is greater than this size, then you need to carry out the alignment by means of plaster or drywall.
This detail you can read on our website, which shows step by step instructions (sm.Vyravnivanie plasterboard ceiling - how to make your own);
- If you need a little trim the surface, then you clear the plane of whitewash or paint.The capacity to make a batch of adhesive.
Apply it on the ceiling with a spatula.Moreover, we should not worry too much about the quality of the surface, in this regard important to sustain the desired plane, which will be mounted on the tiles.Not big band shell and hide the tile.
After waiting for the complete drying of the plaster and cover the plane primer that will provide the desired bonding surfaces.After applying give it too dry.
After preparing tool and the surface to be installed and you can proceed to substantive work. Before laying the tiles should be placed in the room where the work will be carried out on the day.
During this time she will get used to pick up the required temperature and humidity.It begins to work from the center of the plane.
First you need to make a layout, where there are two types:
- In the first case it is necessary to carry out two lines that should be placed at right angles.To do this, we find the centers of opposite walls, we celebrate and connect lines that intersect in the axis of the ceiling.
At this point, and should start the installation.In this embodiment produces a lot of waste, which increases the cost of the structure;
- The second option is more economical but no less effective.Here it is necessary to start to fix the tiles from only one held the line that connects the opposite wall.
should apply even where the bar, which is already prepared.It should be applied evenly on the line, and by applying thereto elements fix them to the ceiling surface.
Bar will contribute to the smooth placement of elements and not allow displaced.Just if you do not, the adhesive mixture will be forced out of the material and close the line, then stand straight edge will be extremely difficult.
method of marking and the beginning of fixing depends on the pattern that you choose. If you decide to decorate the edge of the plane elements of a different color, then the layout and method of installation will have to change and do differently.So
- bars in the ceiling of the desired shape, and it must be correct geometrical shape.This figure can be applied using a marker;
Caution: Edge on line and can get to the wall so that all will be a little different size.Somewhere tiles will have to be cut, and may not remain a big gap.On
is not necessary to pay special attention, just to hide this shortcoming should be applied plinth is slightly wider.But when applied to try to perform the drawing figures, as accurately as possible.
- tiling, using this pattern should begin from the axis where the contact elements of different colors.Thus it is necessary to use rail, as described earlier.If
have undercut elements, then it is done on a material not from the joint line, and the opposite side.
- Then do the layout of the central figure.We draw diagonal and put tile, as described earlier.
Now we know how to mark the plane and how to do it, if the pattern is applied.Prepare a solution.
the quality of its preparation will depend on the lifetime of the structure.You can not make a mixture of highly dense, in which case it will not provide the required material shrinkage.
In the manufacture of a liquid solution, the material will go, and you do not soak the accuracy of placement of elements.So
- Take the dry mixture and passed through a sieve.We need to remove debris and clumps peremyat.It is to achieve uniform mixing without lumps and stones;
- Pour dry mixture in the prepared container and start adding water.This is mixed into the solution;
- Then take a mixer or a drill with paddle and mix the solution completely.If necessary, add water.We are making a homogeneous plastic mass, without stones and lumps;
Note: In cold weather, do not make a purchase on the market of the dry mixture.It can be nipped by the frost and is not suitable for use.
Just pay attention to the expiration date of the material if it has expired, then the chances are that you will not be able to prepare a high quality solution.
As mentioned before, do not forget primed reference plane and it is desirable to make twice.Without this it is impossible to do the work efficiently.
tile for the kitchen ceiling in different packages may have a slightly different size.For a start it should reorder.
During measurements lay it in three different packs.Spread size: small, medium and large.The largest number of turn of the second size, with him and should start work.
ceiling tile for the kitchen is placed on the base adhesive, which is applied in two ways:
- on the tiles;
If you are doing a job for the first time, then you will be more convenient to put on the ceiling.
- We have signs, and we start laying from the center of the intersection lines.Take one item and applying it to the place of mounting.Do
fitting, which is always performed in the dry.Look, that we do not interfere.Tile fits snugly against the surface;
- Then take a comb spatula and applied to the element mixture.When applied to keep the trowel at an angle of about 45 degrees, and apply the mixture evenly.
ensure correct folding ridges that are on the spatula.The thickness of the layer should be about 5 mm;
- now putting a rail along the line and pressed tiles.Doing a little rotational movement to the cavity is completely filled and the item is placed firmly on the cover;
- At the edge of the tiles will make the mixture, which should be removed with a spatula;
- Then apply the mixture to the next element and applying it.Only at the junction with the tile inserted cross, which provide the right angle joints and uniform throughout the length of the seam fasteners;
- and continues laying tiles on the entire length of the line.The final element is likely to be required to trim.This is done using the Tile or grinder with cutting wheel;
Locations installation of lighting need to make round holes.For this purpose the nozzle purchase drills called "dancer".
Or there is another option, buy a cup of diamond-coated.They are sold under a certain size.But the dancer is more practical, you can do it on a different radius cut.
To do this, mark the center of an item using the core diameter.
Attention: nakernivanii glossy surface of the tile, do everything accurately enough.You just have to skalupnut little luster to the leg does not move dancer.So take your time.Do the job accurately.
- After nakernivaniya, put the item on a perfectly flat surface, put the foot to the center and turn the drill on a low speed.Do not just make great momentum.In this case, the gloss will shear and damage the plane surface.
ceiling tile for the kitchen in the order laid out to the end.
Note: Elements during attachment should be immediately cleaned from the excess mixture.But do not wipe the adhesive completely.It may be a small plaque.Which after drying becomes white and is easily removed with rags.
After processing the entire surface of the ceiling, waiting for the complete drying of the items.When this happens, wipe the tiles are preparing to seal the seams.
To do this you can use a mixture which was placed on the tile.If you want to do it a certain color, then buy putty desired color scheme in the retail trade.
seams are sealed:
- with a spatula clear the joints between the tiles.This is an angle of the tool;
- Knead the solution in the right quantity, as mentioned earlier;
- Apply the prepared mixture to the joints using a rubber spatula.Making the application of the mixture, it should be dent on the tile joints to fill the void it is completely seamless;
- Next waiting about 20 minutes, when the mixture just grab, wipe with a cloth seams;
- We wait complete drying and completely wipe the tiles with a dry cloth.
ceiling tile installation is complete.It remains easy to glue skirting on the edge of the tile and cover the seam.
This material has a free-retailing, where you can choose the desired width and the desired pattern.If you do the work according to the rules of technology.
design will serve you for years to come.
