        The design of the stretch ceiling is simple: a canvas / film is stretched onto the profile located along the perimeter of the room. Installation options have been developed:

        • one level;
        • layered composition.
        • A single-level stretch ceiling can be easily mounted: just fix the profile and stretch the canvas. It is easy to maintain, but it will not work to build in the lighting system and diversify the lighting in the room.

          But you can zone the ceiling space using different colors of the film. It is welded with an inconspicuous seam, forming a one-piece multicolor surface.

          The two-level stretch ceiling in the nursery looks much more interesting. It is a combination of drywall and stretch panel.

          The principle remains the same: drywall is mounted on the profile, creating a frame of the structure, then baguettes are placed and the film / canvas is stretched.

          This method has many advantages:

          1. Hides the unevenness of the ceiling surface.
          2. Removes wires from eyes.
          3. Allows you to embed a variety of lighting.
          4. Interestingly zones the space with different heights.
          5. Thanks to plastic plasterboard, the ceiling structure can be of the following forms:

            • arched;
            • wavy;
            • conical.
            • You can make not 2, but 3-4 levels.

              Important! When decorating a children's room, the main thing is not to overdo it, creating complex multi-tiered structures. Still, a children's room means space and freedom, and complex ceiling compositions clutter up the space.


              You can add variety to the nursery using the rich decorative qualities of stretch ceilings.
