Stretch ceiling type is very practical, moisture resistant and very decorative. And he can perfectly fit into the design of any room. After all, the types of stretch ceilings shine with such diversity, which even the "never dreamed" ceilings of other types. The person who first encountered the choice of stretch ceiling can easily get confused in all this diversity. To help you figure out, we suggest finding out what types by type of fabric, construction, form, and design of stretch ceilings are and what are their features.
No matter how many stretch ceiling options there are, they can be made of PVC film and fabric.
A thin PVC film is welded from individual strips - this is done on special equipment. For mounting the floor space is heated with a heat gun to 60 - 70 degrees. The film stretches and slightly sags, after which it is tensioned onto a pre-assembled frame. When cooled down, the PVC ceiling will become tight and smooth. The type of film will determine the texture of the ceiling surface, as well as its color and pattern.
PVC fabric used for mounting suspended ceilings.
This elastic fabric looks and feels like women's stockings. The desired color of the canvas is achieved by coating the fabric with an appropriate polymer, and moisture resistance - with a varnish coating. Such a ceiling is safe, very light and very attractive in appearance. And he "breathes". The width of the ceiling of the fabric can be any, but it serves properly for many years.

In general , all these structures are attached to the walls equally - with the help of a baguette. This is such a special profile, mounted around the perimeter of the room. It is inserted into the ceiling of the canvas and fastened harpoon (PVC ceilings) or bezgarpunnymi (fabric and PVC ceilings) method.
It is easiest to make such a ceiling, and the costs will not be very large. And this design also serves for a long time and regularly, is not afraid of temperature changes, is easy to maintain (only occasional dust is required to wipe). There is an infinite variety of colors and patterns, various textures, there is an opportunity to make photo printing. Therefore, you can always get something original. And if you want more creative options, you can combine materials of different types. This will divide the room into zones, using only one level. If this is not enough for you, then read on.

Different levels of such a ceiling can be formed in two ways. With the use of drywall constructions or with the use of special profiles allowing to make multi-level ceilings solely with the help of tension cloths. The second method is cleaner and more quickly realized than the use of drywall constructions.
Usually, such constructions consist of various canvases (both in texture and in color), the combination of which gives very interesting results. Suspended elements, the shape of which can be smooth, straight or curved, a variety of lamps, fabrics, PVC film - everything is used. In addition, any defect (even substantial) multi-level ceiling reliably hide. The most popular constructions of this type are bunk.
A multi-level ceiling made exclusively with the help of PVC fabric.
is heard in our high-rise buildings almost all sounds from neighbors. In addition to soundproofing walls and floors, ceilings also require sound insulation. In the case of installation of a tension structure, you can mount a special acoustic ceiling. It is made of polyester fiber - it is a sheet with tiny numerous holes (there are about 200 per square meter). Otherwise, it is a peculiar membrane through which the sound waves are absorbed by the mineral plates (laid under the ceiling).
The sound insulation layer over which the canvas will be stretched.
This is an ordinary flat (mostly glossy) ceiling, which is equipped with special lighting equipment. Fiber optic cable allows you to show the stars, planets and galaxies in all its glory. The effect of star twinkling makes it possible to feel among other worlds. The main detail of such a ceiling is a light generator. It is hidden under the tensioned surface.
There are two manufacturing techniques of this ceiling - with a puncture of a cloth and without a puncture.Each technology has its advantages. The method of manufacturing without puncturing the fabric ensures its integrity and is most suitable for ceilings with glossy and satin texture. As for the technology with the puncture of the fabric, it is used for fabric ceilings that transmit light worse.
Now consider what types of suspended ceilings are in form.
Most often, when arranging stretch ceilings, people choose this option. This is a classic, which allows you to adequately and skillfully disguise all the irregularities, as well as to hide the elevation differences. Under the ceiling cannon all cracks and uneven coloring will disappear. The plane can be positioned parallel to the floor or the base of the ceiling, and you can at any angle to it. See photo above.
How many levels to make exactly depends only on the idea of the customer and the designer. In principle, their number is unlimited, as well as the number of colors and shades. If you can also fantasize with textures, then you can get something absolutely fabulous and unusual. This type of ceiling allows zoning of the room. See photo above.
When the strict rectangular lines of the rooms seem somewhat boring, you can arrange an original smooth transition of the tension surface to the walls. Or you can make a vaulted ceiling shaped like a dome (one or more). Walls are an indispensable attribute of such a construction. The rise can be arbitrarily high, and the radius of curvature can have any value. The advantage of this option is that communication can be hidden in the corners of the arches.
The crests of the waves look very interesting on the ceiling. They may be like shallow swell, a storm at sea or a slightly waving water surface. These waves have the same or different height and amplitude, they can go around the ceiling or along its perimeter. Especially spectacular wavy surface on a dark glossy stretch ceiling.
This option may be needed when there are columns in the room. A conical ceiling (of any color, diameter and texture) will smoothly flow to them, completing the overall picture. In this case, the cone can either "grow" out of the common plane, or it can be a separate element. Its base is drop-shaped, rectangular, rhomboid, oval or round in shape. There may be several cones on the ceiling.
The bell of the three-dimensional shape in which this ceiling is made really looks like a sand dune . By varying its depth and diameter, you can get very interesting effects. And if you also successfully arrange the lighting, the ceiling will be mysterious and unusual. Glossy planes, illuminated at different angles, look particularly good - they reflect light very interestingly. Dunes can be alternated with various ceiling elements, while the transition from them to the main plane make both smooth and sharp.
# 1. The cheapest (by the way, and the most popular) option is a dull stretch ceiling. It is very reminiscent of a virtuoso plastered surface. One of the most popular types of ceilings, very well combined with straight planes and a classic interior. Those whose views can be called conservative will especially like the dull stretch ceiling with a rough surface. With it, and the eyes do not get tired, and comfort can be felt in full.

# 2. A glossy (otherwise lacquer) ceiling can visually make a room larger. It is good for a small room, bathroom, pool. An interesting effect can be given by the use of a glossy surface when zoning a room. Particularly well looked finish this texture of dark corners. It should be remembered that the furniture in the room with a varnished ceiling should be a bit - otherwise the room will look coarse.
# 3. Satin ceiling looks like a surface covered with paint with a slight sheen. Unlike the matte surface, satin has a reflective effect. But it is not a mirror, like a gloss, but very soft. In a room with such a silky ceiling, it is cozy and homely, which is why it is often installed in bedrooms. By the way, it is also easy to care for the satin surface - to wipe with a dry cloth, and only.

The color range of the stretch canvas is almost limitless.There are two basic palettes - it is warm (sunny colors) and cold (blue, violet and green tones). The latter will make the room taller and wider (visually). Warm colors are good for rooms where windows face north. Bright colors will enhance the person, acting as a kind of irritant. Therefore, it is better to use them, for example, in the hallway. But in the bedroom or nursery you need to pick up something calm. It can be a pure white ceiling, soft green or blue.

Photo printing can be performed on both the fabric and the PVC ceiling. A wide format printer helps. This way you can perfectly decorate the room. For example, a delicious still life will perfectly fit into a kitchen interior, a frame from a cartoon - into a nursery, and a reproduction of your favorite picture - into a living room. However, you can decorate the ceiling with your own family photos - why not.
One caveat: when ordering a similar service, contact the place where they use really high-quality paint. So you give your ceiling a long life.
Here, perhaps, all types of stretch ceilings based on which you can choose exactly the ceiling that will appeal to you and your whole family.
