How to attach the wall covering to the ceiling

Forage - artificially produced refining material. It is used not only for interior decoration but also for outdoor use. The popularity of the material due to its properties, ease of installation and durability.

This material allows you to level the ceiling "below zero", which has a positive effect on the appearance of the room. Different laying types allow you to "play" with the room, to enlarge, enlarge or reduce it.

Varieties of linings

Wooden.The wooden lining blends in perfectly with any interior thanks to its natural look. The material is environmentally friendly and therefore very popular due to this property.

Only high-quality wood is used for the production of wood fodder, preference being given to types of needles, since the processes of decay are almost unaffected. If the material is used to equip steam rooms, the resin content in it should be minimal. Without knowing the properties of this material, you will not understand how the ceiling of the wall cladding is made.

Made from pressed hardboard.For those who are new to the carton, we give it its more familiar name - MDF. There is a protective layer on each sheet of the extruded hardboard, which can have a smooth or rough surface. The obvious lack of such a material has poor moisture resistance, which makes it impossible to mount it in rooms where increased humidity is possible. Excessive steam in the air can cause the ceiling of the wall panel to swell and lose its attractiveness.

The disadvantages include the large weight of the wall plate, which makes assembly difficult and slows down installation.

Notice! Even when cleaning, the material should not be exposed to moisture, which significantly reduces its popularity, although its appearance is very present.

Made of PVC.The exact opposite of the previous version of wall cladding, because PVC panels are not afraid of moisture. Everything else, the material also has antistatic properties.

PVC shingles have a cellular structure so the panels are light and easy to attach.

Material selection

By what external signs can you distinguish high quality material, how to make a blanket from a lining with your own hands and at no additional cost? Now we're going to try to figure out the answers.

  • Assortment The colors offered by manufacturers allow you to experiment with the room and its design, but buyers often prefer the white ceiling because it can expand the space.
  • Look. The panels are matte and glossy, but the first option is more practical. It is much easier to dye the glossy ceiling than the matte one, as visible stains appear on the gloss with every touch. How the wallcovering is attached to the ceiling is also important, as you can make it unsightly at first.
  • Seam or seamless. Of course, the last option looks better, but the price of such plates is higher.


We will be guided by the fact that the ceiling in an ordinary apartment is carried out in a house with concrete walls. Changes to the base, walls or other room parameters can lead to a change in the tool list.

  • Perforator In addition to the perforator, we need a 6 or 8 mm diameter drill with which several holes must be made for the lath.
  • Screwdriver, but you can use a screwdriver.
  • Stapler We will need this tool to attach the wall plate to the prepared base. However, you can choose a more reliable method of fastening using screws.
  • Bulgarian for cutting panels.
  • Level to check the evenness.
  • Pencil for marking.
  • Saws

For boxes you need high quality material, so that the bars of 20-25 mm are perfect.

Notice! A wooden box is not suitable for damp rooms.

We will frame

When cladding the ceiling with shingles, the most important thing is to properly assemble the frame. For self-assembly with metal or wooden parts. The wooden frame is many times easier to assemble than the metal frame, and the attachment of the cotton lining is much easier. Different design and cheap.

Notice! Each wooden bar must be checked not only for the horizontal position, but also for the perpendicularity to future rows of forage. The maximum distance that the bars can be separated from each other is 40–60 cm for plastic and 60–100 cm for wood.

Focusing on these indicators, you can safely proceed to the calculation of the number of bars or metal profiles and the fastening of the wall cladding to the ceiling and the remaining nuances, which we will analyze below.

To fix the guide, all you need to do is fix it to the ceiling with screws. Both metal profiles and wooden bars can be attached in the same way. For a quality installation, you may need self-tapping screws of different lengths, since there are practically no perfectly smooth ceilings and you will have to replace wedges in some places.

Notice! If the humidity in the room increases during operation, the wooden structure should be treated with linseed oil to protect the material from rotting.

The box must be attached to the metal structure with a perforator. After finishing the work with the frame, to the end of the ceiling of the wall panel, the quality is high.

Clipboard fasteners

It is not recommended to start work on two corners at the same time, even if there are many assistants and they have nothing to do. Furniture knobs are better to use for fastening lining, as they have small caps that are almost invisible. Undoubtedly, for reliability, you will have to screw in a dozen screws, but they will not be that many. The ceiling is clad with wooden shingles.

It is best to use a construction stapler to attach plastic lining. Every sheet material must be fastened "groove in the groove". Don't forget to keep checking the horizontal.

A little effort and you can enjoy a perfectly flat ceiling. Due to the properties of the material, it can be used for many years without any loss of properties. The main thing is that the material was of high quality and free of defects.
