Ceiling tiles

For decoration of the ceiling in the apartment or house used a variety of materials, one of these practical and convenient materials is tile. Do not think that we are talking about finishing the ceiling with ceramic or tile, we are talking about the use of polystyrene foam tiles (foam).

This material is one of the most versatile and affordable for the design of the shelf. In the modern market of building materials presented a huge selection of such tiles. You can find tiles of different sizes, textures and colors, the shape of the tile also varies, although the most common is still a square shape.

We list the types of tiles for ceiling decoration:
Injection. The material for the manufacture of such tiles is obtained by sintering raw materials for polystyrene foam blocks.
Pressed (or stamped). It is made directly from polystyrene foam blocks, the thickness of such tiles – 6-8mm.
Extruded. Tile, which is obtained by extruded polystyrene strip extrusion. Then it is painted or covered with a thin film. At the exit, the tile has an ideal, smooth surface, plus, it can be given a visual appearance of wood, marble or other popular materials.
Ceiling tiles can be used in any normal environment and situation, even if the floor surface is not even. The work will not be very difficult and not much saw.

In the general case, the process of finishing the ceiling with expanded polystyrene tiles occurs in several stages:
The choice of the tile itself and the adhesive mixture.
Calculate the number of tiles required for precise surface finishing.
Preparing the ceiling for finishing.
And the last – directly adhesive tiles on the ceiling.
It is worth choosing a tile very carefully, as there are a lot of “fake-work” and simply low-quality products. The tile should be dense and strong, the edges and corners of the tile should be clear. The docking of the tiles with each other should be as tight as possible, the picture (if present) should clearly stand out and be visible, the color should be saturated and durable.

Calculate the number of tiles

For a perfectly flat rectangular surface, calculating the number of tiles is not difficult. We take the total area of ​​the ceiling, divide by the area of ​​one tile – we get the number of required tiles.

For uneven or irregular surfaces, you can split the area in parts or read the approximate number of tiles needed.

Training

The process of preparing the surface for gluing tiles implies leveling and priming the ceiling. Alibaster, gypsum and other materials are used for leveling. To prepare a smooth surface – a special primer or simple glue, it is very important to completely clean the ceiling from the previous finishing material.

After all the preparations are completed, you can proceed to the pokeke of the tile itself. To do this you need liquid nails, a little attention and patience!
