And again, I welcome you, friends! Today we will consider the solution to the hidden cornice problem on the problem ceiling. There are times when all repairs are completed and it is time to nail the cornice in a hidden niche. And there is a ceiling whitewashed with chalk-based paint or another problem (we will not understand the reasons why we did not immediately prepare it). Everyone wants a clean and painted ceiling in this niche, but in order to achieve this, it is necessary to clean off all the chalk, primer, putty, sand, paint. – In general, a very dreary, long and dirty task. Consider an alternative to a quick, not very dirty and aesthetically beautiful niche.
Here is a whitewashed ceiling
We buy MOISTURE RESISTANT GYPSOKARTON, we cut to the size of a niche with a margin of 1 cm more (it will go under a stretch ceiling), if for example, the width of a niche is 20 cm GK we cut 21 cm, we use galvanized self-tapping screws with a large hat, we nail 6 x 30 mm sockets on the dowel.
We beat VGKL by flipping it the other way around so that a smooth edge lies close to the wall.
it is not necessary to putty, the wallpaper is glued immediately to drywall and the galvanized screws under the wallpaper will not rust.
Gently prune around the pipes
We begin to glue the same wallpaper as on the walls (we use Kelid glue in this case)
Wallpaper is also trimmed 21 cm and glued to the wall with an even factory part
Now we nail the ceiling cornice closer to the edge of the stretch ceiling so that the curtains are on top of the heating radiators.
VGKL DOES NOT TOUCH TO A 1-2 MM WALL – THIS SLIT WILL PROVIDE SAFETY FROM DAMAGE IF THERE WILL BE A FLOOD FROM TOP. So everything is on Feng Shui.
We collect all the tools, clean up after ourselves and go home. The result is clean, aesthetically and quickly. Good luck to everyone, bye.
