Choosing a material for ceiling design in the kitchen, many buyers prefer drywall. Possessing a lot of advantages, it allows you to create a unique design of the ceiling space, while often emphasizing the affiliation to a specific interior stylist. The material of this article will introduce the reader with the varieties of plasterboard ceilings, their forms and will tell about the care of plasterboard.
Gypsum Carton is a building material with a slight weight in the form of large sheets. It is performed from plaster and supplemented with lightweight components, due to which it becomes flexible. On both sides, each sheet of plasterboard is saved by construction paper or specialized cardboard. It is the components (gypsum + cardboard) explain the name of the material.
Due to its characteristics, the material can be used regardless of the complexity of the design.
Ceiling overlap can be not only simple, but also complicated constructive features. Ceiling drywall differs from the wall less sheet thickness, and therefore it does not create a large weight load. The material is not deformed and not strifted during the service life, may have different sheet dimensions.
Its fixation is carried out on a wooden or metal frame. In other cases, the sheets glue on the prepared surface using plaster based mastic as a retirement. The sheets themselves are characterized by special performance characteristics, which make it possible to use them in kitchens with different conditions. For example, manufacturers produce material with fire resistance, moisture resistance, noise insulation.
Plasterboard itself contributes to the preservation of heat in the kitchen. It is characterized by plasticity and is able to take any shape designed by design. And therefore it is often bent, creating figures with smooth edges. If desired and comply with the rules for working with materials, plasterboard can be bending to sharp corners.

- Due to the frame, the height of the walls is reduced, which is unacceptable in the kitchens of a small-sized type (for example, “Khrushchev” and “Brezhnev”).

Ceilings from plasterboard in the kitchen can be classified by the number of tiers. Based on this, they are:
In fact, single-level structures are nothing but the cladding of the ceiling by sheets in the same plane without any protrusions. Two-level analogue already has constructive protrusions. For example, it can be a box of a square or round shape, protruding beyond the first level by several centimeters. Level width can be different, but it is always small (than it is less, the higher the ceiling).
If bunk options have only one step separating them between themselves, then multi-level modifications are sometimes similar to the ladder. This design is performed by means of a frame attached at different heights. It is for him that she lists, thereby forming the different height of each level. Multi-level plasterboard ceiling in the kitchen – rather rarity, it is permissible when there is a sufficient wall height and quadrature. Otherwise, multi-quality creates the effect of gravity in the kitchen interior.
Plasterboard ceilings can be completely made of one material or be a kind of boxes for other ceiling decorations. In essence, such structures are called combined. At the same time, the combined ceilings can also be both one- and two-level. In addition, the designs may be so-called suspended, or soar.
They look very impressive, are used in most cases to highlight the dining space or bar counter. Externally look like the ceiling is hanging in the air. This effect is explained by the presence of suspensions and special illumination, reinforcing design perception. As a rule, such ceilings have a square or rectangular shape.
Some varieties are performed on the axis, and therefore they provide a turn of construction.
The manner of performing plasterboard ceilings in the kitchen can be linear, framework, as well as figured. Linear type design is nothing but a classic ceiling with straight shapes. Frameworks are a design in which the plasterboard is assigned the role of a frame framing, say, tensioning canvas or racks, as well as ceiling panels. In fact, there is a plasterboard here, the spotlights of the perimeter are embedded in it based on the direction of the LED light flow.
Curly ceilings from plasterboard are considered one of the most interesting. However, to implement such a design in the kitchen there should be enough space, for in a limited space, curved lines, waves, zigzags create an interior weight gain effect. Figured ceilings in the kitchen are a two-level design at which one level is located below another. In this case, the form of the protruding level can be geometric or fantasy.
For example, it can be a circle, oval, rhombus, spiral, flower with illuminated each petal. Advanced options include the ceiling design under the well-known Apple brand logo. In addition, the form can be an abstract framing inner insert from the ceiling PVC film. Hinged structures are often equipped with built-in backlight. Also lighting can be the most diverse (from point LEDs to sofaths, spots, chandeliers, luminous panels).
The combination of drywall with tensionable canvas is considered the best solution for the kitchen. The filled film is not exposed to deformation, it does not respond to change in temperature and humidity, which is characteristic of most kitchens. At the same time, the film does not lose its original color and allows the use of photo printing at the request of the customer. It looks in the interior of the kitchen it is quite appropriate, when the plasterboard becomes especially expressive.
An interesting option for designing the cuisine ceiling space is a design with a transition to an accent wall. For example, it may be an design of a composite type with insert in the dining area zone (selection of part of the wall). As for the design of the ceiling, then it may be the most different. Say, for Loft Stylistics This is necessarily imitation of communications and beams.
For classic – focusing frame stucco, moldings, golden venselters.
During the operation of plasterboard, as any other type of finishing, covered with dust, as well as other contaminants. To prevent typical errors, you need to know the main nuances of cleaning. Such ceilings have a different type of surface. For example, if it is matte, then you can not use a wet either with a dry cloth: when you get on the ceiling of the sliding light on it, all movements performed by a cloth will be visible.
With this wiping, a layer of paint is removed, and the microrelief is prefixed. Matte plasterboard ceiling needs to be cleaned exceptionally dry brushed. Glossy and half-one painted surface can also be stitched when cleaning. Wash such coatings will not work: the cardboard can swell. Such surfaces can be wiped with a dry cloth that leaves the porce.
If the ceiling is made of high-quality material, such a plasterboard can withstand the surface treatment with a vacuum cleaner. The brush used must be pre-washed and dried. Washing vacuum cleaner for cleaning plasterboard ceilings is not suitable. Do not try to climb complex contaminants with water or soapy: it can spoil the appearance of the coating.
So as not to suffer when disguised the blurred spots, you can simply paint them. For this, you can leave some paint at the repair stage, which stained the ceiling. At the same time, the same sponge or a roller coated with plasterboard covered. When pollution is either properly a lot, it is advisable to cover the ceiling with a layer of new paint.
So that the ceiling remains fresh and beautiful for a long time, you should not smoke in the kitchen, such a plaster from drywall is not mounted at all. If yellow stains appeared around the lamps, they can be masked by special corrector selling in construction stores.
The lamps themselves should be wiped several times a year: their appearance will also make it possible to refresh the ceiling design.
