Features kitchen ceiling
Kitchen - a special zone

is therefore important to choose the right materials for finishing.
part of the problem
Of course, now there are different mixes, coating of which is able to withstand the adverse effects of the environment.But in this case the kitchen they are not
- Imagine you have leveled the ceiling mixes and painted it.
- after a certain time because of the soot and smoke arising from cooking cover lost attractive.
- way out of this situation is the washing of the existing pavement (see: How do wash the ceiling just expert advice).
- But due to the uneven impact on the ceiling coating of soot and grime, it formed sections with different degrees of contamination.
- We must understand that in this case, certain parts of soot and smoke soak into the coating itself and after bathing in the ceiling formed unsightly stains and spots.
What to do, what to do
In this case, a good option would be a plastic ceiling in the kitchen:
- First , modern plastic panels allow you to create a pretty nice ceilings.
- Second , these panels are very easy to maintain during operation.

two main terms
As you can see, ceilings in the kitchen of plastic has many advantages, which it is impossible not to take advantage.
But before proceeding with the installation, it is necessary to solve several problems:
- selection of the suitable panels
- And the way mounting frame
Let's look at both questions in order.
Choosing panels - what you should pay attention
correctly choose the plastic and is easy and difficult at the same time:
- simplicity lies in the fact that the plastic panels are relatively expensive and provided a widerange in almost any hardware store.
- wide range of colors allows you to choose the panel to suit every taste.
difficulty lies in the fact that not all the plastic panels commercially available, can be used in residential areas .Sadly this is our reality.
In pursuit of profits, some shops selling low-quality products that not only are durable, but in some cases simply unhealthy.So
- conceived to mount the ceiling in the kitchen made of plastic, very responsible approach to the choice of its elements.
- sure to inquire about the availability of certificates of conformity and quality.
- If you purchase the panels have an unpleasant, pungent smell, do not pay attention to the assurance of the seller that it will disappear with time, give up the purchase of this product.
type frame - an important factor
Another important factor for the suspended ceiling made of plastic is the material of the frame.
sometimes arranged frame of wooden bars. If the rest living rooms, this approach has a right to exist, in our case it would be a bad choice.
It should be understood, arranging the plastic ceiling, kitchen or bathroom is humid:
- tree is known and moisture, bad neighbors.Over time, wood constructions very quickly formed a mold and harmful fungus.It
odor and rapid destruction of the structure.
- course, you can treat the wooden parts with special protective means, but it certainly more a waste of time and money.
important detail - isolated space
Everything else in this device ceiling coverings, there is one small but very important nuance:
- Any false ceiling, and a plastic ceiling in the kitchenis one of its variants, is arranged at a distance from the ground overlap.
- As a result, the ceiling frame is in a closed and poorly ventilated space.
- from below through the cracks penetrate plastic panels evaporation, moisture and teplo.Soglasites, ideal conditions for the breeding of various bacteria harmful to the human body and can destroy in a few months wooden structure using tiny untreated plots.
- Therefore, in this case use as a frame of a special galvanized profile is justified, especially as the price of these products in our time is not very high.
other words - do not let mold, fungi and harmful bacteria do not stand a chance.

What is most interesting, the disease is almost cured and before that apparently healthy people each year begins at a certain time of year to experience severe allergy attacks.
Why is this happening
Although we said that when choosing a plastic panels should be inspected various certificates, etc., but this fact is valid only on plastic in a calm state. When you perform cutting or drilling, you hereby apply to material mechanical effect, which is why in certain parts there are areas that are beginning to allocate harmful elements, and the smallest plastic chips can get into the respiratory tract, causing such phenomena.
