Two ways of illumination devices for drywall ceilings:

  1. Installation of integrated luminaires a chuck placement and wiring in the gap between the roughing and finishing ceiling;
  2. Installing LED Tape in a specially provided niches.

Using the integrated lighting, can make spotlights, can not do without in the kitchen or in the office. LED lighting - is a more versatile option, as with the right approach it can provide not only comfort, but also an intense room lighting.

In some cases it is combined ceiling, in which the above methods the lighting device can be advantageously combined.

Backlight can be hidden in the ceiling of a sibling - the thing is, how it is omitted with respect to the overlap

What should be the ceiling with lighting

Construction drywall ceiling can be single-level or multilevel. And in fact, and in the other between the ceiling and the ceiling trim clearance remains sufficient to install a full integrated lamp.

table_pic_att14954919201 Neon lights. Set intended for this niche.

It is a versatile option that provides not only comfortable, but also the intense lighting of the room.

To mount the LED strip is preferred to use duplex ceilings, as a side section on differential levels can be applied as a niche.

table_pic_att14954919202 Combined lighting. Combined the ceiling, which are simultaneously used spotlights and LED strip.

It is the most functional, but also the most difficult in the performance option.

As combined plasterboard and stretch ceiling with lighting? And he and the other option has obvious advantages, but the stretch vinyl design can only be purchased on order, while the ceiling of plasterboard can be made with your own hands.

On the other hand, why plasterboard ceilings with lighting not combine with tension inserts made of vinyl or fabric?

Materials and tools for assembly plasterboard ceilings

Before you make a false ceiling with lighting:

  • We carry out measurements of the perimeter of the room;
  • Making drawing ceiling structure;
  • We calculate the amount of material that is necessary to prepare.
Most of the tools for working with plasterboard is, in any home, but have to buy materials

Most of the tools for working with plasterboard is, in any home, but have to buy materials

Materials required:

  • Drywall ceiling with not more than 9.5 mm thick;
  • Profile ceiling;
  • Self assembly for bearing metal for plating plasterboard sheet metal structures;
  • Serpyanka sizing of joints;
  • Latex primer;
  • Plaster finishing gypsum-based;
  • Latex paint.

Of the tools you need:

  • Hacksaw with fine teeth undiluted for cutting sheet of drywall;
  • Screwdriver with a set of bits;

If the installation of the ceiling of GCR their own hands for the first time, I recommend using a bat with a limiter that prevents the tug of self-tapping screws.

  • Plate shears and pliers for the profile;
  • Level and measuring tools;
  • Plaster and paint tools for finishing.

Wiring diagram, on which you can make a ceiling in the style of minimalism

The design shown in the diagram consists of three levels:

  • The first. This perimeter wall, which is 120 mm away from the rough ceiling.
  • Second. Located just behind the first level, the least removed from the ceiling, only 50 mm.
  • Third. This center of the ceiling, which extends from the overlap of 80 mm.

LED strips can be positioned in a niche, which is made in the rim of the second level. Spotlights can be installed around the perimeter of the first level, as its most remote from the surface of the overlap.

In accordance with the operating features are two types of LED backlights:

  • monochrome (Monochromatic) light in which all diodes are lit in one color and the only thing that can be adjusted, so it's brightness;
  • multicolor scheme where on the tape present red, green and blue (RGB) LEDs.
Multi-color scheme much more complicated one-color, but they allow the controller to select different color combinations

Multi-color scheme much more complicated one-color, but they allow the controller to select different color combinations

To build the system of the LED strip will need a set of screwdrivers, scissors and soldering accessories.

backlight assembly rules:

  • Chunks LED strip can be cut only by a special mark to the icon in the form of scissors;
  • Connecting one chain more than two five-meter tapes from one power supply is not recommended, as it will be insufficient voltage;
