The design of the ceiling in the bathroom is a very important process. And the main thing here is the right choice of material for finishing. This will determine the service life of the coating, the decorative appearance, and the degree of practicality of the surface to be treated.
Figure 1. For the bathroom, the ceiling must be selected, relying on the water resistance of the material.
Today, there are many options for decorative ceiling finish for the bathroom. After all, such a room was always characterized by a high level of humidity. And from this it follows that the material must take these features into account. It is necessary to consider some of the most popular ways of decorating the ceiling in the bathroom.
Stretch and gypsum plasterboard analogues
The first option is to use a stretch fabric. If the installation of such a ceiling will be performed by professionals, then for a long time you will be completely shielded from the problems associated with sagging and other defects in the ceiling.
Now there are many design options for stretch ceilings. They differ not only in their color, but also in texture, in thickness, in the presence or absence of a certain pattern. The choice of the thickness of the ceiling is better to entrust to a professional. But let everything else be at your discretion.
For the bathroom, the use of a monotonous canvas of some sea shade will be a good option for the design of a stretch ceiling (Fig. 1). Another option - themed patterns or photographs on the ceiling. Even if you can not find a finished canvas with your favorite pattern, then you can always make it to order.

Option two - installation in the bathroom on the ceiling gipsokartonnoy construction. This method has been used for a long time. At the same time, a metal skeleton is first arranged, which is then closed with sheets of gypsum board. Only need to choose a moisture-resistant material.
After sealing the slots between the sheets, you can proceed with the definition with the design. Drywall can be painted, covered with light ceiling tiles, and also plastered with plaster. And if the first two options can be easily done with their own hands, then work with plaster will have to be entrusted to specialists.
When painting the ceiling, only use special paint for wet rooms. Painting the ceiling is better in light colors. If you have decided to hang drywall tiles, it is better to simply paste it. In the event that the color does not suit you, you can repaint it and even apply a drawing. This will emphasize the marine design of the room.
But keep in mind that the use of gypsum board construction is best only in cases of a completely uneven surface. If your ceiling is flat enough, then there is absolutely no sense in taking the height space under the frame. Moreover, in the cavities, with insufficiently good treatment, a fungus or mold can develop.
Mirror materials and glass wallpapers
The third, quite fashionable, but still not so common version of the ceiling design in the bathroom is its finishing with mirror materials. To such carry both special longitudinal rejki (fig. 2), and a mirror tile. The surface in the quality material must be hardened so that the mirror does not crack.

The mirror ceiling in the bathroom is suitable for any room. So, the room will seem bigger and more spacious, it will acquire its own originality and refinement. To emphasize the atmosphere of the sea, you can decorate the walls with glossy tiles of the appropriate motif. Reflecting on the ceiling, it will create the impression that the bath is a bottomless sea depth.
Together with this mirror ceiling is one of the most expensive options for decor. This is due to both the cost of the material and the additional costs of installation. After all, you yourself can not cope with the work in any case.
The fourth method of finishing the ceiling in the bathroom is the installation on the surface of glass walls (Figure 3). This is a very durable environmentally friendly material that can add extra lighting and ease to the design of a small room. A mandatory condition is the presence of windows or a transparent roof.
Steklooboi are relatively inexpensive, easy to attach to the surface and serve a long period. Due to the fact that such a glass is attached through the wooden frames of the frame, the design acquires lightness, reliability and the ability to breathe. Therefore, the bathroom will not be constantly filled with steam.
So, from the above it follows that the design in the bathroom can be varied. So you can choose the original design for the room.
The most qualitative are glass walls and mirror tiles.
Although under the conditions of limited resources, other, simpler and cheaper materials can be used.
