Foreign and domestic manufacturers offer systems from different materials, the variety of textures and colors is striking. It is difficult for an inexperienced buyer to make the right choice, so expert recommendations will be useful.

How to choose a stretch ceiling

  1. Canvas type. Today on the market of finishing materials there are three types of canvases. The most affordable and popular is PVC film. It is often used by owners of private houses and apartments to decorate kitchens, bathrooms, toilets and some living quarters. It is preferable to finish bedrooms and children's rooms with eco-friendly satin fabrics. In the overall premises, you can make a seamless ceiling using a fabric based on polyester and polyurethane. Only the price of such a material is quite high.
  2. Texture. Any stretch ceiling has its own texture. Matt surfaces create an imitation of the base, with a perfectly even layer of putty. This texture is optimal for spacious rooms with a classic interior. The modern style of decoration involves the use of glossy stretch ceilings. Such canvases visually enlarge cramped rooms.
  3. Colour. Ceiling coverings with a certain color palette will look harmonious in different rooms. The most demanded is white linen. It is suitable for most interiors, calmly affects the psyche, combined with inserts based on photo printing. For the bedroom, romantic shades such as pink, blue and beige are suitable. But bright ceilings (green, purple, orange, blue) will be appropriate in children's rooms. Dark colors are used in the decoration of offices.
  4. Features of installation. Experts attribute the fear of high temperatures and sharp objects to the disadvantages of stretch ceilings. Mechanical damage rarely occurs during operation, but at the installation stage it is quite easy to spoil an expensive canvas. Therefore, it is necessary to immediately determine the number and location of lamps, cornices and other interior elements. Another nuance is important to consider at the design stage of the ceiling decoration – this is the gap between the base and the canvas. If you plan to install built-in lights, you will have to sacrifice the height of the room.
  5. Additional features. Stretch ceilings are versatile, but some products have unique properties. Music lovers should take a closer look at acoustic paintings. They combine sound and heat insulation qualities. For residents with low immunity, antibacterial linens are optimal. And in production rooms or laboratories, it is recommended to install moisture and frost-resistant ceilings with high resistance to dirt.
