planning a renovation, we are bound to get up before a choice: what "dress" the wall of his home?Align base putty and paint?Or maybe give the texture of the walls by means of special plaster?Perform artificial stone finish?Pokleit wallpaper?Stop!After such repairs can not be surprised either relatives or friends or neighbors.And if the soul asks for unusual materials and textures, look at the well-forgotten old - fabric wall hangings.
has long royal and imperial apartments knocked expensive silks.In XIX century in Europe and Russia of the XIX century at the peak of popularity was cretonne - thick cotton fabric with ornaments: wealthy people knocked them walls and furniture, sew curtains.Even his beloved cabin yacht of Emperor Alexander III «Standart" was finished in this practical and fashionable while material.
We already told readers new denim panels for the walls.Today, wall coverings chosen as natural fabrics (cotton, linen, wool, jute, sisal) or synthetic material (polyamide, p
olyacryl, viscose).First, thanks to the good water vapor permeability, allow the walls to breathe.The second is less fade in the light, and their range is much wider.What is to stop the election - a matter of taste and objectives that you set for yourself, creating a room design.
upholster, paste, drape?
Member Beckbulat wondered if he did not drape the walls with a cloth when the walls, plastered on the glass net, in the first winter went ugly cracks.Plastering again - a pointless process: due to seasonal variations in humidity cement particle boards, which are internally lined with frame houses, much play.So, the process will be repeated again and again.
Beckbulat :
- I drape the walls at least in the rooms where it is justified aesthetically and functionally acceptable (ie it is not a kitchen or bathroom).
similar project conceived to implement the Forum member Lenok86 .The walls in her house chipped fiberboard inside - insulation of eco-cotton.In order not to hang wallpaper, under which first need to mount drywall (and therefore hire workers), new posts went out, pulling the walls of their own tissue.The heroine confused one - the dust that will eventually accumulate in the drapery.
But today, many manufacturers produce fabric with soil and anti-dust impregnation.In addition, the fabric can be vacuumed, and the wallpaper, especially the texture, too dusty over time (not to mention the carpet that covered with flooring in most homes, and some - with the Soviet chic decorated walls).
So if issues with cleanliness and choice of fabric resolved, it remains important - how to pull it (cloth) on a wall or ceiling?Or is it better to stick?Consider a few ways.
Method 1: rail-tension
act are better together - one person will hold the fabric, the other - to fix it to the surface.Fabrics take reserves - 10-15 cm longer than the length of the wall.Starting from the top corner - with dowels anchoring tissue, stretch the upper edge of the cut and fills decorative top rail fixing otrez every 20 cm. Then, the same operations perform with the lower edge of the web and the sides.
Method 2: fasten rail, pull the fabric
Tamp rails along the perimeter walls.The fabric is attached to the rails in upholstery tautly staples or nails with wide hats in a sequence-floor ceiling-sidewall.Places close fastening trims.
Since between the rack and cloth is an empty space, it can be used for the device additional insulation.
Method 3: glue
to glue the fabric on the walls is much more complicated than the wallpaper.Firstly, because a normal wallpaper paste for this purpose will not do.It will have to replace the furniture, which freezes at high temperatures.Secondly, because it will not only smooth out the fabric with a rubber spatula and hands, but also make the canvas with a hot iron (to glue started to freeze).Third, too pull the fabric when gluing can not - it can be displaced in the direction and form creases.Paste and smooth fabric from the bottom up.Fourth, the dry adhesive will be a long time - a few days, and you have to make sure that the web is stuck evenly and keep up with the walls.In general, it is rather a way for those who are not afraid of difficulties.
elegant way out - sticking textile wallpapers .They consist of several layers: base - paper or fleece, the top layer - textile fabric (jute, flax, silk, velvet, felt).They do not need an iron to smooth out and look for work for furniture glue.Fabric wallpaper glue joint to joint, smoothing squeegee.No matter what you kleite on the wall - a fabric or textile wall surface must be pre-aligned.This disadvantage of this method - our foruchanam Beckbulat and Lenok86 it is not suitable.
Method 4: draping
dreaming to go to sea under sail?You can sail on the ship home, draped ceiling white cloth air.Or turn the room into an oriental tent with the help of paintings rich, warm colors.Ceiling drapes perfectly fitting in residential interiors, and in the premises of restaurants, the hotel lobby.
Places attachment to the ceiling draperies mark out with a pencil and level.The edge of the fabric is secured to the ceiling of a small nail, pull.On top of the web with the help of screws and screwdriver assemble the wooden rail.

participant Lenok86 offers attach the fabric to the ceiling in a different way:
- Fabric bend on the edge, sew loops on the edge of the laundry gum every ten centimeters.By the walls of the ceiling at the same distance nailed, each bent like a hook.The fabric, passing to a corner angle mounted on hooks.To hide the hooks between the wall to tie pieces of wooden beams, on top of a wooden baseboard nail.If desired, after the time sheet can be removed and washed.
Method 5: assemble fabric panels
Some companies now produce fabric and leather panels to order.Rama, with stretched material on top of them, mounted on the wall or ceiling.This technique is called buaseri (from the French. - Wood paneling) and also has its roots in the Middle Ages.For the first time in such a way to decorate the interiors of steel in France.
To make such a frame is easy to own with the help of wooden slats, fabric, foam and furniture stapler.If the fabric is heavy, will look good with the panel Karetnaya tie - surface equidistant slimming buttons, getting the bulk diamond pattern.
