Most people are lost when they have tochoose the option of finishing the room, especially if they are going to make hanging ceilings with their own hands. This is not surprising, considering all the variety of offers of suspended structures that are present on the market. But each solution has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it is worth considering them in more detail.
To date, one of the most popularmaterials that are used in the finishing of ceilings, there are slabs of plasterboard that consist of a modified gypsum bonded on both sides with cardboard. Mounted this material on a special frame of metal or wood. The composition of such plates can be different.
If the production of drywall is addedsilicone, then moisture-resistant plates are obtained, if glass fiber is added, the material will be refractory. There are also flexible sheets, which are used for decorative finishing of the finished structure. In this case, figured hanging ceilings from plasterboard are obtained, photos of which can be seen in any publications on construction and design.
In addition to gypsum boards,Other models that represent a suspension system with special modules - plates, slats or cassettes. The composition of the tiled ceilings includes mineral fiber and gypsum base. Usually their size is not more than 60x60 cm. The cassette modules are somewhat similar to the plates, but they are made of metal. But the lath ceilings are a construction that consists of load-bearing profiles, hangers and metal panels that are made of aluminum. Make these hinged ceilings with their own hands is also not particularly difficult.
It is worth to learn more about the benefits anddisadvantages of all the above systems. All of them are sufficiently ecological, have sufficient fire resistance and provide good sound insulation in the room. But in case of flooding from above none of the systems will not protect you. Especially it concerns the drywall ceiling, which will have to be completely replaced.
Therefore, in the bathroom or in the kitchen is betterinstall tiled suspension systems, which include mineral fibers and silicone, or give preference to metal cassettes or slabs. They will reliably protect your room from the flood. In addition, tile ceilings are more practical, and in case of damage it will be possible to replace one or more slabs, and not the entire ceiling.
In terms of aesthetics, all suspension systemsEnsure a sufficiently even surface of the ceiling. Drywall, for example, allows you to realize almost any design ideas - create a ceiling of arbitrary shape - stepped, bent, broken, etc. And tile, rack and cassette systems make it possible to decorate the ceiling with various patterns and conduct experiments with different colors and shades.
In addition, any suspended structure is excellentsuitable for "masking" all communication devices - cables, water or sewer pipes and ventilation boxes. But keep in mind that if you intend to make hanging ceilings with your own hands from plasterboard, then access to the hidden objects may become a bit complicated. Especially if the design has a large area. Therefore, if you plan to provide unhindered access to utilities, it is better to give preference to modular suspension systems that are easily dismantled and assembled.
Regarding cost, plasterboard ceiling alreadynot one year is the most economical option of all existing on the market. This is if you take conventional single-level blocks. And if you plan to install hinged ceilings with your own hands, while realizing bold design intentions, special gypsum plasterboard modules will cost even more than rack and pinion structures.
From the foregoing, it can be concluded thatgipsokartonnye ceilings are more attractive not only appearance, but also their low price. It is recommended to use them in small offices and other rooms with normal humidity. Modular systems are more expensive than plasterboard, but not worse in terms of decorative ceiling decoration. Suitable best for large areas (shopping centers, for example), but you can use them for ordinary rooms in the house.
Now you know how to make a false ceiling with your own hands.
