Ceiling in the apartment. How to make it non-standard?

What can be interesting in a ceiling? Still rather recently, except the whitewashed, other options of ceilings just did not exist. They were succeeded pasted over with wall-paper and painted in the beginning. And today the set of other ways of finishing and ceiling designs appeared.

Oval, step, not horizontal - what there are only no ceilings today! However some still prefer classics, considering that snow-white and ideally plain surface over the head is a standard of good taste.

It collects dust on a ceiling and over time can turn yellow. With paint there are no such problems. Modern structures quickly dry, do not smell, are rather economic, the surface after drawing can be washed.

To coat ceilings in the apartment, it is possible to use simple white acrylic or structures with additives, for example, of a marble crumb. For each room it is possible to pick up the color of a ceiling shading it an interior.

Nevertheless, the plastered ceilings too so far remained. However, today they not usual, and with decorative structure. Plaster here not homogeneous mass, but structure with addition of a stone crumb, pieces of mica or wood fibers which give ceiling surfaces the original invoice. After putting such decorative plaster the ceiling can be painted.

The ceilings executed in equipment sgraffito are unusual. It when on a surface is applied by several plaster coats, and different flowers, and then, without having allowed them to dry, on a crude surface protsarapyvat a pattern.

The gypsum plasterboard in itself allows to hide all cracks and roughnesses of a draft ceiling and to receive an ideal surface. Besides, all communications can be hidden behind gypsum cardboard on a framework. However the false ceiling will take away not less than 10 cm of height of the room too.

It is much more difficult to finish a multilevel ceiling in the apartment. Besides he demands the thought-over lighting. But also looks much more effectively flat single-tier. Steps, niches for illumination, a combination of the rounded-off and direct forms - these methods of finishing of many-tier ceilings draw attention. The line of a ceiling design can be duplicated on a floor surface for zoning of the room.

Several words about stretch ceilings which became fashionable recently. If it is short, then the stretch ceiling is the fabric or a film tense on a framework. Its installation is made quickly, and even in the presence in the room of furniture. And the cloth of a stretch ceiling can be color, glossy, opaque, white or have the invoice of suede, skin, marble, fabric or a mirror. At desire it is possible to apply any photo, drawing or a reproduction of a favourite picture on a ceiling film. And if it bothers, there is an opportunity to quickly replace this cloth.
