Everyone wants to create a beautiful and harmonious interior in their home or apartment. When decorating a home, the ceiling plays an important role. Currently, there is a wide variety of ceiling coverings. Today we’ll talk about the cassette finish of these bases.
The cassette ceiling is a suspended coating consisting of individual tiles. Some consumers believe that this type of design will be suitable only for business offices or stores. But this is far from the case. Quite often, designers offer to trim ordinary living quarters with similar materials.
The standard length of each individual cartridge is 595-600 mm. The width of the part, as a rule, is 600 mm. But at the same time, the dimensions of the parts of the ceiling can vary. Sometimes consumers use tiles with smaller parameters. Indeed, in some design projects of small rooms it is best to use smaller materials.
Cassette ceiling has a number of significant advantages.
- they hide communications and wires. You can hide any cable under the cassette, however access to it will always be free. To do this, you can simply remove a certain part;
- ease of installation. To install a cassette ceiling coating, no special foundation preparation is needed. It is also not necessary to mount the product on the profile;
- low cost. Many buyers purchase this particular type of material because of the low price. Laying a similar foundation will be affordable for everyone;
- simple replacement. You can easily change any element on your own. It should also be noted that lighting devices can also be easily removed or installed new ones;
- security. Cassette ceilings have high fire resistance, so they fully meet all the necessary fire safety requirements;
- not subject to mold and mildew. These materials are quite resistant to external harmful influences (moisture, mechanical damage), which is why it is often the cassette structure that is used to decorate saunas, bathrooms and pools;
- durability. Cassette cover can serve its owners for a long time. However, it will not lose its original appearance.
Despite the large list of positive qualities, cassette ceilings have disadvantages.
- To install this type of coating in the room there must be a sufficient wall height. After all, when laying a cassette product, 15-25 cm is lost;
- high cost of frame construction. Despite the fact that this material is quite cheap, a profile cassette frame for it will cost much more than fastenings for other types of ceilings.
Today, manufacturers offer a large selection of different cassette coatings.
- wooden ceiling;
- coating with a mirror surface;
- perforated cassette ceiling;
- mineral fiber coating;
- aluminum tile ceiling;
- cassette coating with a glass surface.
Many consumers prefer this material because of the beautiful aesthetic appearance. When installing such coatings, a certain type of wood is processed and divided into different cassettes. Often, the frames around the edges of each individual element make frames that give the product elegance and elegance.
False cassette ceiling with a mirror coating is a popular option for interior decoration. This type of decoration can completely change the decor of your room. Often such a foundation is made in spaces of a small area, as it is able to visually expand the living area. But it is important to note that noticeable stains and spots quickly appear on mirror surfaces.
This view is a metal cassette with a specific geometric pattern. The pattern on the material can be very different. As a rule, when choosing this coverage, buyers rely on their own preferences and desires. According to most designers, a perforated ceiling is a great decoration for living spaces.
From mineral fibers
Silicate or mineral fiber ceilings are ideal for providing good thermal and sound insulation. This material is most often used in the arrangement of interior decoration. Often, such ceiling coverings are supplemented by special metal inserts.
Quite often, cassette ceilings are made of galvanized metals (aluminum, steel). But it is worth remembering that before installing such a design, it is necessary to apply a special solution or powder paint on it. Often, such details are polished using modern technology. This is necessary to give the product a beautiful mirror shade.
With glass surface
Ceilings with glass surfaces in many ways differ from mirror options. Similar items are made using acrylic glass. The result is cassette coatings that have a beautiful aesthetic appearance. Also on a similar ceiling, you can apply a beautiful pattern of any size. This technique will make the foundation brighter and more interesting.
Currently, design specialists have developed various design options for cassette ceilings for living rooms in an apartment or a private house. When buying material, you must always consider in what style you are going to create your interior, what size your home is. Indeed, for each type of arrangement, their own finishing coatings are suitable.
For small-scale spaces, a white smooth ceiling is best. With this technique, you can easily visually increase the living area. On such material, it is quite acceptable to have a small drawing made in darker shades. But at the same time we must not forget that too large a pattern or too many small elements of an ornament can overload the interior.
Many designers offer matte cassette ceilings in their projects. Sometimes aluminum or steel inserts are embedded on the surface of such coatings, which give the base a beautiful appearance. Ceiling coatings made in this way can fit almost every design project.
Popular news in the building materials market are cassettes. As a rule, they trim the outside of the room. Such products are most advantageous to choose in one color, or to alternate two shades in a certain order. They are ordinary cassettes without embossed surfaces and decorative patterns. The most common colors of these details are yellow, beige, blue, gray, white.
Some designer sketches show carved wooden cassette ceilings. These coatings should be used in rooms with a large area. Also, we must not forget that the most profitable such material will look in interiors designed "antique". On wood substrates, a large drawing of a darker color shade is acceptable.
Another popular form of decoration are coatings with mirror or chrome smooth surfaces. Most often, such products are made without ornament and various inserts that could overload the ceiling and make it ridiculous. This type of basement is ideal for interiors of small-scale rooms.
