If you have ever tried to paint a textured bathroom ceiling then you know what a tediously boring home renovation task feels like. Your bathroom suffers from constant high humidity levels and therefore needs regular attention, especially its walls and ceiling. If neglected for a long time, the ceiling’s paint will bloat or peel off and that’s one thing you definitely don’t want. This is why you need PVC ceiling cladding, which is easy to install and doesn’t require any maintenance work at all. The cladding looks great on your ceiling at all times whether in the bathroom or elsewhere.
So What Exactly is PVC Ceiling Cladding and What Makes It So Unique?
PVC ceiling lading is not a new phenomenon in construction. It was created in the 1970s as a decorative style of giving interior walls a fine glossy finish. The unique properties of PVC panels made this form of cladding more popular than other types of cladding at the time. For instance, PVC panels come with hollow cores which make them lightweight. PVC panels also have a smooth surface which makes them ideal for decorative purposes and can be designed with a seamlessly fitting tongue and groove system for easy installation.
You can use these PVC panels to cover up any form of imperfection on your ceiling. They also require less maintenance than painted ceilings. Our ceiling cladding is quite affordable and doesn’t compromise the quality of your home. The cladding is also available in a wide range of colours, styles, and finishes to suit your home’s decor.
Maintenance-Free PVC Ceiling Cladding Panels
We have high-quality interior PVC ceiling cladding panels that give you a maintenance-free solution to the traditional plastered ceilings. We stock both standard white and white gloss PVC ceiling panels featuring silver inset strips that add a touch of class to an otherwise plain ceiling. The panels come in varying lengths, ranging from 2.7 meters to 4 and 5 meters long profiles that are made to reduce the number of joints in large rooms. Our PVC ceiling cladding panels are Class 1 Fire Rated. You can use them with downlights safely. We recommend you use LED lighting when you have this type of cladding installed.
Ceiling Cladding Installation
Ceiling cladding is easy and quick to install. There’s no complication involved. The panels can be fitted over any existing ceiling including plaster, a combination of plaster and Lath, and Artex. If you already have a more fragile type of ceiling such as polystyrene tiles, we recommend that you remove it before installing PVC ceiling cladding. Alternatively, you can use mechanical fixings such as long screws, long staples, and nails to fix the cladding on the existing ceiling.
PVC ceiling cladding is the perfect choice for new buildings because it can easily be installed directly to the plasterboards. You don’t need plaster when installing on a new building, which saves you money, time, and effort. If you have an uneven ceiling, you can install cladding on battens using staples and adhesive. Use the staples to hold the ceiling in place while the adhesive sets.
Common Types of Bathroom Ceiling Cladding
If you’re looking for an easy way of enhancing the neat appearance and style of your bathroom, then try ceiling cladding. Cladding adds character and smooth texture to any room. It makes your bathroom look neater and more comfortable.
There are many types of ceiling cladding from different manufacturers but the three most commonly used types include PVC planks, tiles, and wood.
PVC ceiling cladding panels are quite popular today because they come at a lower cost and have a wide range of choices and varieties to suit your interior decor. The panels are waterproof and hardly require any maintenance, which makes them very convenient. A majority of PVC planks mimic the look and colour of wood but they are also available in other colours and styles.
Another big plus for PVC ceiling panels is the fact that they don’t require paint. They’ll last for years without ever needing a coat of paint. They have a tongue and groove design which makes them easy to install. They can also be fitted on different types of existing ceiling including plaster and gypsum wallboard. Their joints are cleverly designed to give the installed ceiling a smooth and flawless effect.
Some homeowners prefer to install tiles instead of the long PVC panels. This type of cladding is used to create beautiful artistic designs for your bathroom ceiling to match your shower wall panels. It gives a smooth, flawless, and artistic modern look to your bathroom using stone or ceramic tiles. The tiles are maintenance-free and will save you the trouble of painting your ceiling every few months or years. The downside to this type of cladding is the high cost of tiles and the intricate process of installation.
PVC ceiling cladding panels may be cheaper and convenient but it can’t beat the natural look of real wood. Ceiling cladding made of wood panels gives your bathroom a classy spa-like look and atmosphere. If you can afford its cost of installation and regular maintenance, then install wood panelling. It will increase the value of your bathroom and home. However, the durability and appearance of your wood ceiling will depend on the type of wood and finishing that you’ll use. You can also stain the wood while painting your bathroom to retain its natural look.
Benefits of Installing PVC Ceiling Cladding
You don’t necessarily need to spend a lot of money to create a neat looking modern bathroom. A few slight changes can make a huge difference.
