The design of the ceiling in the living room decided to pay special attention. In the hall on the walls of any flaws and defects can be hidden or decorate. Modern floor coverings have become such that they are difficult to mess up, at least on the floor I lay, say, a rug in the technique of patchwork. But with the ceiling so it does not, there is a defect can not hide, and they will be permanently on view. Moreover, in the living room you can entertain your guests, and your first glance, they involuntarily throw on the ceiling.
Interesting to look at the background of the history of our country at the metamorphosis that has undergone the ceilings in the apartments. In «accursed tsarist times» they are richly decorated with stucco and whitewashed. In the first Soviet years, the stucco work still remained, but slowly began to fall off, and in the buildings of the Stalin era from the moldings left only the outlet in the center under the chandelier, and the curb around the perimeter. Do not forget that in such houses were the best apartments of the era. In the years of mass housing construction stucco gone, they just whitewashed and mounted chandelier is one of the symbols of prosperity in the Soviet families. Suffice it to recall the scene in the movie «Mimino», when in court, find out the cost of broken «Falcon» Kikabidze chandeliers.
History moves in cycles, including the history of design. It has been a century, the ceiling has regained attention and became a full-fledged object in the interior space.
It is very important! Today mandatory requirement – match the style of ceiling design with the style living room. We are talking not just about the one of the surfaces in the room and the placement of the main lighting. The ceiling is a very important part of interior room (and any room in the apartment), which also has a function of increasing visual space and zoning for different functionality areas.
With this aim, the selected materials and finishes of the decor, select the design, configuration and lighting systems. Yes, it is a combination of the lighting system, because a chandelier, no matter how beautiful and stylish she was, could not solve all design problems for the lighting of the hall.
To device single-level («flat») a ceiling using paint, tiles for ceiling, Wallpaper, decorative plaster, wood. Siblings may be also suspended construction of plasterboard or suspended ceiling.
Two – level and multilevel designs make of suspension systems lined with plasterboard, and a combination of drywall and multi-level ceilings with tension. Complex designs can be created using natural wood products made of expanded polystyrene that simulates wood beams.
For the surface decoration used plaster or polystyrene molding, moldings.
To say that a one-level ceiling is banal and boring decision, is completely wrong. The aesthetics of the ceiling does not depend on the number of levels and the quality of materials, skill of the performer and soundness of design concept. To give an example: sticked on the ceiling of a nondescript pale-colored Wallpaper will look unpresentable. Beautiful embossed Wallpaper (non-woven, vinyl or fabric) glued into the frame from the molding will look very different. Decorative elements – they are not levels of the roof, the roof remains flat and the way to decorating.
Moreover, it is impossible to name boring single-level design of plasterboard with a well-designed lighting system and fittings, or suspended ceiling. Although, no doubt, a multilevel design provides much more opportunities to make the entire living room interior design the originality and elegance. Charm and charm, if you will.
It is important! Multi-level design relevant in living rooms with a ceiling height of 2.50 meters. If the height is lower, you need to think carefully about the configuration of the ceiling structure, so it does not «Davila» in the living room. Or just to abandon it in favor of a more simple design that will better match the height of the room.
The assertion that «top» must be white or very light, is not an axiom. It can be anything. Even black. Black glossy stretch ceiling cool and stylish looks in the hall. Importantly, to match the style of living. However, Matt the ceiling the same color look great in the living room would still be grim.
In appearance suspended construction of plasterboard is often difficult to distinguish from a matte white stretch ceiling. No different these designs and features. This is one reason that quite often they may be combined together.
Suspended construction of plasterboard compared with the ceilings require much more time for Assembly and finishing. Drywall unlike most popular material of the stretch ceiling of PVC film, the moisture resistance has not and after contact with water becomes unusable.
It is important! However, the indisputable advantage of the structures lining plasterboard – able to create multi-level ceilings with different lighting systems. Another advantage of drywall is the possibility of its facing almost any materials. In addition to traditional painting, the surface of this design can be decorated with decorative items, do the mirror inserts to apply decorative plaster to highlight certain areas or to apply a technique known as «capture ceiling». In this case, part of the ceiling surface is coated with the same material as the wall surface, the transition is not allocated.
Multi-level designs allow you to organize different lighting for different areas or living room to accent with lighting single interior in the room.
The type of surface are matte, glossy or satin. Available plain or coated with a printing pattern. The type of material vary the tension ceiling from PVC film and fabric of polyester canvas. The first type is affordable and well tolerated serious leak. PVC stretch ceiling film width does not exceed 2 metres, therefore the installation is done the welds (they are practically invisible). For the installation of such ceilings requires a heat gun.
Fabric stretch ceilings are installed without joints, because the width of the fabric up to 5 metres. In the manufacture of textile fabric impregnated with polyurethane which protects the canvas from moisture. However, the fabric ceiling is lower in comparison with PVC film elasticity.
For living rooms with low height recommended for glossy stretch ceilings. They can significantly, up to two times, visually «to raise» room. Even very dark or black glossy cloth due to this effect will have on people living in oppressive experience.
The choice of colors and patterns is so great that to stay on one thing is difficult. Apparently, so worried and tormented the Soviet people, caught in the end of the restructuring of «bessovestnoi» Moscow for the first time in the sausage Department of the German or French store.
To arrange coverage to meet such requirement:
- The obligatory presence of a Central lighting device.
- The obligatory presence of Central light in cases of clearly zoning the living room.
- Mandatory lighting spotlights around the perimeter of the ceiling structure.
For the organization of lighting used classic and modern chandeliers, spotlights, led lights. Material and type of lamps selected, in accordance with the style of decoration living room.
