fillet (ceiling moldings, moldings, friezes, Deco plinth) - an additional element of decoration.Its main task - to make the connection of the ceiling to the wall completed form, to conceal possible irregularities and gaps.
fillet ceiling give the room elegance and perfection.
plinth ceiling - dimensions and material
There are many types of moldings (see: How do happen ceiling moldings and how to install them) .Samym common and inexpensive is a frieze of foam.
Usually he produced a length of 2 m, at least 1.3, and 1.5 m .Moldings can be different widths and pattern, concave or convex, imitating stucco or smooth, mostly not painted white.
Council.We do not recommend the use of Deco plinth made of extruded foam ball.It is poorly cut, it may crumble eventually dries out.
foam should be uniform, dense and white.The front of the plinth - smooth.
Another type of material is a polyurethane ceiling quirk.The material more rigid and durable.
Price frieze above this, and work with them more difficult.It is available in lengths of 2 meters.
If required by the design of the room, use ceiling moldings made of wood (see: How do install a wooden ceiling moldings?). It can also be used plaster products, PVC, laminated MDF and others.
Wooden fillet is used for trim clapboard steam baths and saunas.
Baguette can be not only white (paintable), but also painted or laminated.
on curved surfaces with a large radius of curvature can be used straight out of the fillet or polyurethane foam, arching them.For small radius bends apply special flexible ceiling moldings.
ceiling mount fillet
Before sticker wallpaper
The most common is a variant Deco plinth mounted to the ceiling paint and sticker wallpaper on the walls.
In this case, proceed as follows:
- prepared ceiling and walls cleaned of dust and cover with soil deep penetration.
- Mount frieze.
- close up all the joints and cracks finishing putty (if necessary).
- Stain ceiling with frieze.
- pasted wallpaper on the walls, with some overlap in the plinth.
- Slice off the excess with a knife sharp wallpapering, using a spatula to avoid damaging the frieze.
After the stickers wallpaper
sometimes have to mount a quirk after painting the ceiling and wallpaper stickers.The most common quirk is already factory finish (painting or lamination).
work must be performed very carefully, using a transparent adhesive.Preparing walls and ceilings must be perfect, because you can not cover up the gap filler.
Note.Baguette must be purchased with a reserve, as required very careful fitting joints (no gaps) and to correct errors is very difficult.
on what and how to glue
There are several ways of gluing:
- Using finishing putty for gluing and grouting frieze and crevices.
- Applications for the same purpose a special adhesive paste to foam and polystyrene (usually white).
- Bonding with a transparent adhesive "Dragon", "Titan" and the like.
- Mount acrylic sealant (white or transparent).
On putty can stick it is not very wide, easy frieze with subsequent painting.
Glue for polystyrene can withstand a greater load.They can also putty and a small slit in the joints, corners or areas adjoining to the walls and ceiling.
transparent adhesive is used primarily for installation of wallpaper.
Note.Remove excess adhesive difficult, it must be applied carefully.Then give a little to grab and then mount the decorative element in place.
acrylic sealant has one very important advantage - it remains elastic after drying.Excess sealant can be removed with a damp sponge.
He also embedded small scheli.V further cracks unlikely.
Council.The use of silicone sealant - a mistake.It is difficult to remove from the surface of the silicone is not colored.
How glue fillet on the ceiling?
starts with one of the corners pomescheniya.Rezat foam molding to the ceiling can be a sharp knife.
For other types frieze better use canvas with a fine tooth (Hacksaw).It will greatly facilitate and accelerate the use of miter box.
possible to apply an electric miter saw with adjustable cutting angle.
Corner connections are made accurately and tochnee.Snachala corner fitted without glue.
When you reach an acceptable result, adhesive is applied and adhered frieze.Excess adhesive is removed immediately after installation.Similarly
paste the following trims frieze.
Council.No need to press strongly Deco plinth installation in order not to damage it.
For fixation on curved surfaces using masking tape or finishing nails that do not achieve until the end.After bonding the nails are removed, and the holes are zashpaklevyvayut.
Video installation instructions ceiling moldings with their hands:
There are special angle for the moldings and decorative objects.They are used, if it allows the design space.
If ceiling stretch
fillets wet for suspended ceilings is adhered only to the wall (see: How do stick to the ceiling moldings stretch ceilings yourself). to the canvas baguette ceiling is not bonded, it should be able to contract and stretch.
There are special plugs for connecting the stretch ceiling and walls, but you can use fillet or polyurethane foam.
Before installing the foam (polyurethane), a baguette if necessary okrashivayut.Polotno ceiling installation is necessary to protect the masking tape.
joints carefully shpaklyuyut and stained after installation.
Framing ceiling of plastic sheeting (lining)
Suspended PVC ceiling panels or linings are used more often in wet areas (showers, toilets) .They use a special PVC profiles are installed along the perimeter.
panels at the edges of factory installation in a groove profile.
use baguette ceiling lighting for the organization
If fix decorative ceiling moldings on the wall, retreating from the ceiling, and put him LED strip, you can get a beautiful and sophisticated lighting.
fillets Also there are many different accompanying elements from foam (PUR).
Fretwork polyurethane interior.This allows your hands to solve virtually any design problem.
