There are new types of ceilings and frames for their clearance.In this article, we will explain what are the ceiling borders and how to fix them.
Videos and photos can be viewed in the internet.Select the desired shape and construction.
There will be presented step by step guide on the choice and to the method of installation of this element.And most importantly, this work can be done by hand, without the need for outside help and reduce the cost of these works.
curbs on the ceiling, it is an integral part of the interior of any premises, the value of which is difficult to underestimate:
- complement and enhance the integrity of the interior;
- Texture ceiling moldings can be of different types and colors that complement and accentuate the structure or ceiling coverings;
- With it, you can hide defects in the plane of the joints and walls. Most often they are used for the finishing of the surface in the kitchen and bathroom, this element is perfectly hide butt tiles and the ceiling;
- If successful selection of color and pattern can be changed and the area of the room, of course visually.
Warning: Many believe that the plinth should be the color of the ceiling.This is not true.
Contrast contrary decorates the room and emphasizes the design of the plane surface.
Ceiling borders come in several forms.They vary in material manufacturing.Principle attachment is about the same.
There are certainly some details you should know before making a purchase, you can make the room above and vice versa.
Borders ceiling made of polyurethane have appeared on the market in sales recently, but have already found their fans.
This material has many advantages that you should know before starting the installation:
- This model is quite easy to clean and is not afraid of moisture.They do not need to paint, these elements have been the initial white color;
- This plastic material and it's a big plus. This design is easy to repeat the small curvature of the ceiling.
It is possible to mount a radius around the room;
- It is strong and durable material that is easy to install and maintain;
- high price, it is less material.It is far higher analogues which are made from other materials;
- Yet there is one major disadvantage is the weight of the material, it is high in comparison with PVC border.When set to the stretch ceilings, which weighs almost nothing, it can not be attached to the plane.
Installation should be carried out only directly to the base plane of the ceiling.Therefore, before using this design, you should think several times before the decision adopted.
Border ceiling of expanded polystyrene, is a robust and durable construction.
Its main advantages are:
- rather high thermal insulation, which will help keep the heat in the room;
- not susceptible to moisture, it allows it to carry out the installation in areas with high humidity;
- Environmentally friendly product in the manufacture of which does not apply harmful substances;
- It's pretty easy stuff, the installation of which is not necessary to use expensive glue.
Select plinth ceiling (curb)
Border ceiling should start to choose according to its width.
This issue should pay attention to the factors that affect this part:
- Installation of a stretch ceiling should first decide which need a plinth.It is visible and not visible.
It depends on the design decision.The visible part of the plinth is already finished and do not require add-ons, and in this embodiment, masking tape is not required;
- If you want to smooth out the edges and make the room more rounded appearance, then you should choose a bigger design .When the visual look you will achieve exactly what you want.
Investigations have proven person becomes more aggressive when a large number of corners in the room.Rounded conversely, soothe and provide comfort;
- broad elements better hide the joints in the presence of a tension ceiling;
- But there is another side of the coin, with broad design reduces visual inspection area of the room.For example, it is not desirable in a room with a small mezzanine area used, it will reduce it further;
- If low ceiling, it is desirable to choose a narrow plinth ceiling, and vice versa;
There are some features of the color selection of elements that can highlight details premises:
- height of the room by visual inspection to increase the white border;
- with a wide plinth under the color of the walls, will greatly reduce the area of the ceiling;
- Do not use the room for decoration more than three colors;
- elements of black and white colors are perfectly combined with other colors;
- When a large area can set the contrast border, it looks quite impressive;
should stop and the shape of the structure, which plays an important role:
- In this case, do not forget that the presence of multiple forms give the room pomposity.This design may come when giving the kind of antiques and here will be combined expensive materials.
But in this case, be aware that complex shapes much more difficult for finishing;
- Simple forms suited to any type of room and do not attract special attention.
Installing ceiling curb
This important stage of the work, after which you can complete the look of the room, and can ruin the entire structure.So go to work with full responsibility.
At work should be carried out some recommendations.
Warning: Do work only with positive temperature.When drying should not be a draft, otherwise material may peel off after drying.
- Border for the stretch ceiling you can choose any.However it is better to prefer a lighter structure.
film itself will not keep the items asit is light and does not have the desired stiffness;
- Curbs should begin to stand at the corner of the room.When buying is better to choose the elements of medium length, it's best to glue them;
- In most cases, glue should begin to paint the ceiling after the installation of the entire plane is processed immediately.Border for suspended ceilings must be painted before the installation, you are just in this case, avoid getting paint on the surface of the ceiling at work;
- Skirting glued to the wall and ceiling.During the repair installation is performed on the filler, which is handled by the walls and ceiling.
Curbs for ceilings are attached only to the wall on this for several reasons: the film does not have the desired rigidity, over time the coating material can be stretched, during the dismantling of the canvas cover damaged;
- plinth installation should be performed before pasting wallpaper, and not after it;
- Before installation make a mark on the wall edge of the border, attaching it to the mounting plane. After that mark should be moved to other walls is done by means of a hydraulic level and help fight off the monofilament thread.
This should be done, otherwise you will be completely installed and repeat the circuit if it is made with flaws, they will be repeated and strongly visible.When smooth pasting small gaps may remain.
After work you zashpaklyuete them and it will not be noticeable.Do not forget, the surface will still be painted ;;
- for mounting corners of the room, you can buy ready-made blanks.If they do not have to do it yourself.
To do this, press the ceiling cornice to the wall to butt end rested against the side of the perpendicular wall.Make a mark on the ceiling with a pencil.Place the
then to the other side and draw a line, as in the previous one.You have turned the corner of the intersection in the fixture.
It is now just put two points on the baseboards and trim angle.Now, to get the perfect angle correctly.
- To fix should smear side and attach the element to the surface of the ceiling and walls.In the case of installation in a room with a stretch ceiling, is processed, only one surface, the other (which is adjacent to the film), to cover the protective paper is better not to soil surface;
Warning: Never perform fixing without checking.Always apply after pruning on a dry element and determine the correct performance.
- During gluing surfaces should be pressed against the surface of the plinth.After installation, lubricate all seams putty;
- sometimes applied moldings much weight, in this case, should apply dowels.To connect to attach skirting to the surface and using a drill and drill bits, drill holes in the curb, but the drill bit to drill the wall is not necessary, you just need to identify the point of fixing.Thereafter
make holes in the surface using a punch;
- After that, the attachment point at the front of the plinth should be performed obnizhenie and apply for this larger drill bit.Easier said chamfer, to deepen the screw below the front of the plane.
After fastening screw smeared putty;
- When installing the curb to the tension ceilings should get special inserts to the ceiling.If you install them ceiling will look like a complete design;
- mixture for attaching do not do too thin, especially gypsum.Clay shrinks when dry and can lead the curb;
- If you are doing one job, whereas for securing first use glue and then can be fixed with screws.This will greatly facilitate the conduct of operations;
- installation should be done only after the full implementation of all finishing work on the walls and ceiling ;
- For use only high-quality materials.Avoid buying in the winter market.The material can be nipped by the frost and then become unusable for doing work.
curb price setting is not so high, but this is the item you want, that will make the look of the room zavershennym.Glavnoe correctly determine the structure, not to make the purchase of spare parts.
not use a lot of stucco in the construction, it will simply be a dust collector and can ruin the whole look.If you follow our advice, the design is pleasing to the eye for many years.
