main optionsfinish that meet most of the requirements - it harnesses, but they significantly reduce the height of the room, and then in the low rooms of their application problematic.Traditional plastering and following it works well, but time-consuming.
alternative to these types of ceiling tiles can serve as decoration on the ceiling.However, the adhesive has the features of the ceiling.
foam tile ceiling
Polystyrene tiles or foam on the ceiling - not the most ideal option fini
Benefits gluing foam tiles on the ceiling:
- Low cost - the main "trump card" adhesive ceiling;
foam is much cheaper suspension systems, or plasters.With limited financial capacity or if there is no need or desire to spend money on a thorough renovation, tile - the perfect solution.
- Easy - tile is lightweight and easy to catch on, installation of the ceiling does not require the intervention of specialists: a bit of effort and accuracy - and the ceiling is ready.
For gluing tiles need quite a bit of time (in comparison with other types of ceilings).
papered with such tiles can be almost any base.
- pleasant appearance.
Decorative tile can have a different relief, to simulate wood carvings, stone texture, fabrics, etc.
- Polystyrene is not resistant to high temperatures - tiles can be melted;
This means that lighting and heating pipes should be at a sufficient distance from the ceiling so as not to heat the tile, and in areas with high risk of fire it is better not to glue.
- tile is not resistant to light - fade and turn yellow over time;
- moisture resistance characterized as not all tiles from foam, moisture - an undesirable circumstance in a room with a ceiling adhesive;
- tile installation is really easy, but there are two "buts".
Firstly, on a very uneven ceiling tiles pokleit not - it will at least look ugly.To look aesthetically pleasing result, the ground under the tiles must be sufficiently smooth (without significant differences of height).
Second, even with a relatively flat ceiling is difficult to achieve a perfectly flat surface: that was not visible joints of tiles, it is necessary to work hard.
Last disadvantage is not inherent seamless tile on the ceiling.It differs in the absence of the rim at the edge.Instead of the usual frame tile has shaped edge, whereby the joints when gluing boards become invisible.Seamless tile ceiling otherwise no different from the usual polystyrene tiles.
should know that foam tiles are stamped and extruded.
Stamped tiles have better sound and heat insulation can be further painted, have the right shape and the seams between them are not so visible.
Extruded tiles are made from molten material, they are glossy, may be initially colored, more moisture resistant, but the joints between them are more visible, they can not be trimmed and the differences more visible relief to them.
When coating polystyrene tiles a special film obtained laminated tiles, which is more durable, easy to clean, not afraid of dampness and moisture, etc.
separate subspecies ceiling tiles - mirror tiles. It is universal because it can visually raise the ceiling and decorate any room.
Tiles made of polystyrene, and the mirror effect is achieved by coating it with paint, which consists of metal particles.Most often mirror tiles are sold in rolls and is easily glued to any surface through an adhesive layer on the reverse side.
To decorate the ceiling is often used polyurethane tile that mimics the stucco.It is particularly advantageous to use for interior, designed in a classical style.Without polystyrene and polyurethane tiles in the design of such ceilings are often not enough, as real wood and stucco elements are very expensive, and painted bronze, gold, silver and wood imitation plastic products look better than the real.
Laying tiles - where to start
As in any finishing before gluing tile directly to do, you need to design a ceiling.To do this, select the tile, special glue for it, if necessary - to complete the paint finishes, moldings for decoration lighting.
Design ceiling involves not only the choice of topography, color, alignment, and decorative lighting elements, but also the layout arrangement of tiles.
choosing how to mark the ceiling, you can pay attention to a few basic options.Tiles can be arranged in a straight row or diagonally.And in the first and in the second series can go, "tile to tile" or offset.
best start counting from the center out to the symmetry was observed.
For this ceiling applied diagonally or perpendicular to each other axes intersecting at the center of the ceiling.
Preparing for wrapping is peeled, the alignment of significant irregularities, drying it and priming the ceiling.
Depending on the recommendations of the manufacturer of the adhesive may be applied only on the ceiling or on the ceiling and on the tiles.In some cases, tiles, missed the glue must be a little lie down.Pasting is from the center to the edges, excess glue cleaned with a cloth.In late glued moldings, if possible and necessary, an additional tile is painted.
PVC tiles or PVC panels are also used in the design of the ceiling.But they are not glued and mounted on a small frame.This takes a bit of ceiling heights and good moisture resistance and its smooth surface.It is mainly used for decoration of bathrooms, kitchens and balconies.
Tile - as an option, to the ceiling, but it is rarely used.Tile is certainly more environmentally friendly than polystyrene, but also weighs more, and the likelihood that it will disappear, more respectively.Due to the fact that there are cheaper and more reliable options, ceiling tiles spread is simply not cost-effective.
How to remove tiles from the ceiling
Due to the fact that before finishing the ceiling with polystyrene tiles was all the rage, making repairs today before many question becomes how to remove tiles from the ceiling.
tile itself can be easily removed with a spatula, but to remove the adhesive from the ceiling more difficult.After removing the tiles in the same way, but with greater efforts, tile adhesive torn off along with the top layer of plaster.
If the glue is very problematic to remove, it may be the best option - to leave everything as it is and order a tension or ceiling.If a little glue residue can be primed the ceiling and align it with putty reinforcing mesh.
tile ceiling - price
As already mentioned, the low price ceiling tiles - is its main advantage.Budgetary this option trim covers many of its shortcomings.Kupitbesshovnuyu tile foam can be priced at 300 rubles per set of 8 pieces.
