One of the most common ways of decorating the hallway is its paneling. Moreover, it is one of the most budgetary options and at the same time beautiful, thanks to the possibility of using them as a decor. Well, you can use it directly in any hallway, in combination with the desired stylization. What is an undoubted advantage for all lovers of sophisticated interior and decoration decor.
The process of repairing the hallway, the task itself, is not complex. After all, its main goal is to create a good, harmonious interior, which should easily be combined with the rest of your apartment. And just by using different panels, in the process of decorating the hallway, it becomes quite easy to achieve complete styling, even if it is a question of MDF panels or fiberboard.
Why start repairing the corridor
Often, the process of repairing and creating an interior, any room, is pursued not only by the goal of changing the situation, by using a decoration decor and a peculiar interior, but also a certain pastime. It is for this reason that many of us do the repairs themselves. And this requires not only a desire, but also a certain knowledge.
First of all, you need to determine all the stages of repair. After all, thanks to good planning, you can not only save your own time, but also create a first understanding of the whole future process. And this, in turn, is the most important factor on the road to success. The entire repair process can be divided into three main components:
- Selection of panels.
- Preparation for installation.
- Fastening of panels.
Each of these points has its own characteristics, due to which it is possible not only to simplify the process of repairing the hallway itself, but also to make its result more durable. A well-chosen panels will look great, like the decor of the room. In addition, with proper approach, you can easily create the desired interior in the hallway. And due to the correct design and decor give finesse and create a special atmosphere of the room.
The first, and perhaps the most important point in the process of repairing the hallway and creating an interior will be the choice of the panels themselves. There is a rather large number of possible options for socalled siding of the hallway walls, the most basic of which we will consider today. The main thing to consider all the features of the room and the possible future styling of the hallway, by using the panels as a decoration.
One of the most common options is the use of plastic panels in the basement siding of the hallway walls. Due to its physical properties, the main advantage is the possibility of finishing the premises with high humidity. That is, for the corridor this option is one of the most optimal, if we are focused, first of all, on the durability of the created interior. The plastic surface is easy to clean and is resistant to sunlight. And thanks to the artificiality of the material, there is a very large selection of both models and color solutions, which allows them to be used as decor. However, it is worth noting and one very serious disadvantage - because of artificial origin, such material is not recommended to be used in large quantities in living quarters.
The use of MDF panels is also a popular option for finishing the corridor. In part, this is a natural wood material. Due to this and their thickness, they seriously increase the level of sound insulation and thermal insulation. Moreover, MDF panels can be found with moisture-resistant or refractory impregnation, which makes them also a priority when choosing materials for finishing the corridor. And thanks to its stylization under the tree, MDF panels become one of the most common options for complete styling of the room.
Well suited for finishing the corridor and the panel of fiberboard. Due to their ecological purity, they are most often used in apartments where small children are present. Due to their properties, panels made of fiberboard are easy to clean and do not fear moisture. And for a set of its stylization under a tree are one of the most budgetary options for creating a certain wooden interior.
Fans of the same natural wood can easily find and matching panels. However, these options are far from the most budgetary, but they perfectly fulfill the role of decoration decor. Classic wooden panels impregnated with special preparations that increase moisture resistance and fire resistance. And, unlike MDF or fiberboard, the classical tree looks more noble and has higher reliability.
Preparation for installation.
The next step in the process of repair and interior design will be the preparation of the walls for the installation of the panels themselves, that is, directly siding. First of all, it is necessary to create a crate wall, to which we will attach the panels directly. If we fix the panels vertically, then the crate must be horizontal. And vice versa, if the panels are fixed horizontally, then the crate is created vertical.
The size of the crate itself is usually 20 to 40 mm. The upper and lower joists should be fastened at a distance of 3-4 cm from the floor and ceiling. The remaining bars are located at a distance of 50 cm from each other.
You can do without the crate. But it is necessary to use not only quality fasteners, but also light enough panels, for example, MDF or fiberboard. And you can strengthen them only if your wall is perfectly level.
Fastening of panels
You can mount panels in several ways. In many ways, they depend on the panels themselves, because each species has its own properties, which must be taken into account. After all, the main purpose of repair is not only the creation of a new environment, but also giving it durability.
One of the most popular solutions is the fastening of panels to the crate, by using self-tapping screws. He is reliable and simple in his performance. Yes, that's just use it can not in all cases. If the room is wet, and this is often in the corridors, the screw will not allow the wooden panels to expand, which will adversely affect. So this method is best used in dry rooms without sudden changes in humidity and temperatures.
No less popular method is the use of kleimers for fixing the plinth siding panels. Due to their physical properties and other technology, they no less firmly hold the panels on the crate and do not interfere with their compression or expansion under the influence of humidity and temperatures. Apply this method not only with classic wood panels, but also with panels made of MDF or fiberboard.
But on the glue panels are attached only to the wall. Because gluing to the crate is a very unreliable method. Moreover, the adhesive itself must be sufficiently elastic and, as in the previous cases, do not interfere with the thermal expansion of the panels, whether it's MDF, fiberboard or a classic wood.
