The cardboard surface of the pop false ceiling represents the ideal construction basis for any finish. In addition, the pop ceiling in the kitchen must be closed decorating layer to prevent it from getting wet (when absorbing moisture from the kitchen). What can decorate cardboard in the sheet GKL?
The modern construction market offers so many dye compositions that you can get confused with the prop. When choosing paint it is necessary to get acquainted with its characteristics on the package.
If the paint is suitable for painting pop-design walls, then this is indicated on the metal (plastic) packaging. Therefore, before purchasing paint, you need to make sure that it can be applied to pop false ceilings and used inside wet areas.
Dyeing the pop ceiling in the kitchen is done after pre-priming. Cardboard absorbs moisture, so without a primer, a layer of paint goes deep into the paper layer. A layer of paint falls unevenly, with alternating stripes and spots.
The choice of glossy or matte coating options depends on the presence of surface defects. Matte paint hides minor irregularities. Glossy surface highlights errors in the wrong putty.
The choice of paint is determined by its characteristics after drying. The walls and ceiling of the kitchen should be periodically cleaned and wiped with a damp cloth. Therefore, the paint for the kitchen should be moisture-resistant. In addition, for natural ventilation, the walls must allow steam and moisture to pass through.
The most popular paint for kitchen ceilings - is water emulsion. For kitchen walls and pop false ceilings, latex water emulsions are used. In addition, pop ceiling walls are covered with silicone, silicate, and alkyd dye.
In the area of the kitchen sink pop false ceiling covered with silicate paint. The basis of this paint - liquid glass. It can work for a long time in conditions of regular wetting. In addition, the composition contains antiseptic components and prevents the fungus from developing.
Silicone paint combines the advantages of silicate and acrylic paints. It is very elastic (covers cracks 2-3 mm wide), forms a waterproof film, and does not require antiseptic additives.
It is important to know: pop false ceiling cannot be painted with oil paint.
When painting GKL, they follow the rule: several thin layers of paint are better than one thick. Brush-paint ceiling plinths and corners. With the help of a roller paint a smooth ceiling surface.
For a set of paint, the roller is dipped completely into liquid paint, after which it is rolled out in a special bath or on a paint grid. Rolling is performed after each dipping roller.
If the paint is applied in two layers, then the direction of painting the first layer and the second one are perpendicular to each other.
How installation of the pop false ceiling in the kitchen
The basis of the pop false ceiling finish is a framework crate on the wall or ceiling of the kitchen. It is thanks to the frame that you can vary the height of the ceiling, place it higher or lower, make it on one level, or perform one or two or more steps (level drops).
The material of frame elements is a special metal profile. It has low weight and good moisture resistance. In addition to the metal profile, it is possible to assemble a frame from a wooden bar, after installation, to coat its surface with varnish (to prevent swelling if wet steam gets under the GCR finish).
The height of the profile above the floor varies U-shaped elements. They are mounted on the kitchen ceiling and hold the supporting ceiling profiles. The same elements are used for fastening profiles to a vertical wall. The distance from the profile to the wall can be more or less, depending on whether it is necessary to lay additional sound insulation and insulation (mineral wool or isolation) under the gypsum board.
Metal profiles are mounted to the walls and ceiling of the room exclusively below the level, in compliance with the horizontal lines and verticals. From the quality of their location will depend on the evenness or curvature of the ceiling and walls of the kitchen.
The next technological stage is the installation of sheets GKL on the walls and ceiling of the kitchen. the pop design is screwed to the profiles with self-tapping screws, which are embedded in the pop ceiling.
After mounting the pop false ceiling on the wall, cut out holes for sockets, lamps, and switches. Their edges are also ground.
At the end of the installation, the joints between the slabs are spattered and glued with reinforcing tape. The sequence of operations is as follows: putty, laying tape, and another layer of putty over the tape. After drying the filler mixture, the joints are polished.
