The ceiling in the children's room should be a reflection not only of the overall interior, but also of the child's inner world. For children under 10 years, the design of the room does not really matter. Everything, as far as interior decoration is concerned, is at the parents' discretion. For older guys, the room becomes a way of self-expression. Therefore, psychologists recommend to update the interior in the child's room every 5-7 years.
Traditionally, the ceiling is finished in bright colors. A pretty classic solution is to make a blue or blue ceiling in the boy's bedroom or pink in the girl's bedroom. The yellow ceiling of a light shade (closer to beige or powder color) will be relevant for the design of a common nursery.
The modern design of the ceiling in the nursery is a non-trivial idea and original decor. It will be interesting to look blue ceiling, imitating the sky: with large clouds during the day and glowing stars at night. Starry sky can be done with the help of luminous paints based on the phosphor.
The original idea is the use of photo printing. It can be a starry sky, a continuation of the wall decoration (for example, a green jungle) or an illustration to your favorite fairy tale. For photo printing, you can use conventional wallpaper or stretch ceilings. Photo printing looks great in rooms with high ceilings.
Multilevel hinged ceilings should combine light color with more saturated: green, pink, blue, violet, yellow or blue. You can make a bright colored ceiling with the original pattern. For two-level false ceilings, it is better to choose a white base, adding it with colored details. Psychologists recommend using clean colors to decorate children's rooms:
- Green is associated with nature, develops a sense of justice and responsibility. Green helps to find contact with each other.
- Yellow - tonic and invigorating, stimulates mental activity.
- The blue color calms, gives a sense of security.
- Blue - a cheerful color of creative impulses, reinforcing aesthetic perception.
- A gentle pink personifies modesty and femininity. Pink color affects such qualities as charity and sentimentality.
To decorate the ceiling in the nursery can be beautiful wallpaper. The assortment is so great that you can choose the desired shade and the pattern will be very simple. Types of wallpaper are diverse: from flat paper to wallpaper with a volume soft bas-relief. The matte ceiling, pasted with wallpaper, can be made more interesting by adding mirror elements, colored neon lights or funny stickers. These simple methods of decor will help diversify the interior. Stickers come in a variety of shapes and sizes. To make the room a starry sky, you can buy wallpaper with a picture or phosphoric stickers. The child will certainly enjoy watching the starry sky at night, lying in his bed. Which of the options to choose is up to you.
An example of another idea - the use of wallpaper in the central part of the ceiling, and around the perimeter make a hinged structure, equipped with lighting. Such a ceiling design will look like an attic window through which the sky is visible. This will make the ceilings visually slightly higher, and the room - more spacious.
Paint is used for decorating monophonic wallpaper, painting wooden or plasterboard structures. The question arises: which paint should I use? When choosing a paint, it is worth remembering its chemical properties. The ceiling in the nursery should be covered with harmless quick-drying paints, forming an even matte or glossy surface.
Water-based paints are perfect for finishing the ceiling of a children's bedroom. They are not toxic, easily cleaned for new staining. For material costs - a fairly economical option.
Acrylic paint is unpretentious to surface irregularities. Quick-drying option, devoid of unpleasant odor. Very resistant to sunlight, so it can be used in a children's room located on the sunny side of the house.
Latex and silicone paints are extremely durable. These types of coatings do not smell. Painted with such a paint ceiling can be left for 5-7 years, without worrying about the appearance.
Suspended ceilings are very popular. The design can be either two-level or multi-level. For the production of voluminous compositions of a suspended ceiling, a drywall is used. Variants can be very different, from playing around the perimeter of the ceiling, to bizarre curved shapes like a flower, a crescent or a cloud. The surface can be covered with glossy or matte paint.
This ceiling finish bedroom can boast good noise insulation, spot lighting and local lighting. The presence of a spotlight will help to avoid problems with vision due to insufficient illumination. And the child will certainly like the idea - to choose the lighting zones by yourself.
The stretch ceiling in the nursery is a creative solution. You can choose any color glossy vinyl sheet or draw a picture using photo printing. But the stretch ceiling can not be installed independently, unlike other types of finishes. The design requires professional skills and special equipment.
Stretch ceilings can be combined with gypsum boards. This allows you to create more interesting lighting, defeating the details of the decor. But the stretch coating is suitable only for the room of an adult child.
Under the fabric ceilings are considered three types of coating:
- Ceiling the ceiling with a cloth (fabric wallpaper).
- Decor the ceiling with a cloth.
- Stretch ceiling from the fabric fabric.
Which one is better to choose?
The first view is suitable for a children's bedroom made in the Baroque, Empire or Rococo style. These styles are suitable for decorating a girl's bedroom. It is nece
ssary to use dense fabric wallpaper. Natural fabric - tapestry, brocade, velvet, satin (for a glossy surface) - should be used only on perfectly flat wooden surfaces.
The second kind, the ceiling decor with a cloth, will suit the style of Provence or Shebi-chic, actual for the girl's bedroom. In the sleeping boy this way of registration will fit into the pirate or naval theme, reminding the sail of the ship. Especially if you add blue lighting. Fabric drapes on the ceiling with beautiful folds, creating a kind of cloud. Semitransparent fabrics are used - organza, veil, bugger. The fabric can be colored or monochrome. Lighting in the room should be as bright as possible, because the fabric absorbs light. The decor will look very impressive and unusual. But remember the dust that accumulates on improvised clouds.
The third type of fabric ceiling, tension, is described in the paragraph above. Figures and ornaments fit well on the fabric fabric, which is suitable for both the boy and the girl. Matte polyester fabric is used, which is characterized by increased strength.
In the children's bedroom, the wooden ceiling creates coziness, dispelling warm yellow light, allowing you to move from a high-rise building to a village house. Wooden ceilings are typical for rooms in loft style, country, chalet and modern classics. Wooden ceilings absorb noise well, which is important for a child's room. On a flat wooden surface, stickers for decor are easily glued.
Simulation of wooden floors is relevant for rooms with high ceilings. If you use the dark wood in the finish, then visually the space of the room will decrease. The use of light rocks will help to optically make the ceilings higher.
