To make an interior room can be more functional with the help of a stylish niche gipsokartonaShkafy and hanging racks have always been and remain relevant, but people who want to experiment in the design of their premises more relevant option would be - a niche of drywall with using the backlight. The main advantage it is possible to allocate a harmonious blend with the overall interior room. In addition, niche saves space, does not protrude inward and does not create discomfort when moving people. And thanks to the built-in illumination it is possible to highlight significant items that will be in this niche.
How to start creating a niche in the wall of plasterboard with backlight
If you have already decided what kind of design you want to make a niche of drywall, before starting work, the first step is to determine the materials.
The main list of materials is as follows:
- Metal profile;
- Screws for gypsum boards and quick installation;
- Mounting adhesive;
- Caulking (for finishing);
- Paint or wallpaper (the final stage of the work).
Before you begin to install the drywall niches are kindly requested to prepare all the necessary materials and tools for the job
You will also need some tools, such as screwdrivers, drill, building or writing knife, spatula.
Tips on choosing materials
The most basic element is a niche plasterboard and its reliability depends on how many will be able to serve a niche. Special requirements to it is not shown, except that it is desirable to use a water-resistant gypsum board type which is used in bathrooms and kitchens. Then you should not be afraid of the impact of evaporation and high humidity.
An important factor is the reliability of skeletal parts, namely profile fixtures.
Especially if you plan to put on the shelves of such heavy items as TV, music, sculpture and other things overall. Here the material is not necessary to regret and once is better to do thorough than to remodel, spending more money, time and effort. For niches, which are mounted in the ceiling, on the strength requirement is slightly lower, because they do not feel a special burden. Therefore it is sufficient to use plasterboard 9 mm, and the creation of a wavy form is better to use sheets of 6 mm thickness. If after a preliminary blending drywall on the profile, you have doubts about their exact location, to screw the screw into it, you can use a little trick - hold a magnet and "find" its location.
A bit of illumination for niches
Creating a niche with their own hands, do not be amiss to take care of a suitable light. Especially due to the large interior space, the problem will not hide all the cables and power supplies, without spoiling the external aesthetic appearance.
Uses of luminaires can be set. Each type is different exterior design, efficiency and durability of LED lighting.
If necessary, cover certain niche areas are ideal for spot lighting or execution in a simple "eyes". Most popular LED ribbon. Why do many opt for LED tapes?

And everything is very simple, given the weight of its advantages:
- Quick and easy installation;
- Safety (power, directly suitable for the tape itself is safe for human use);
- Tightness (variants having silicone-based shell);
- Efficiency (scanty power consumption);
- Versatility (some variants have different modes of color and light illumination).
As you can see, the advantages abound, and negative qualities to oppose them is difficult, provided that the LED ribbon purchased from a quality manufacturer and will be used at their nominal parameters. I would like to add a few words about the installation safety. The cable used for the refreshment must be double insulated, and in those places where it passes through the metal profile - is additionally used corrugated pipe in order to avoid mechanical damage and possible fire.
Benefits niche plasterboard for ceiling lighting
Despite the fact that the niche in the ceiling is not practical functions, such as the construction of the wall - it is not deprived of its popularity when creating a modern design. Many people who remember the Soviet times found the same type of whitewashed ceiling with a chandelier hanging in the middle. But much more interesting to look more complex design by step transitions.

And here it is worth noting the decisive factors of this approach:
- Possibility to hide unevenness ceilings;
- Simplification subsequent installation spotlights;
- Hiding ceiling wiring;

To date, the creation of a niche in the bedroom - it is a popular design solution for any interior. Thanks to the LED lighting installed it can be used as a nightlight.
Why do I need a box of plasterboard with backlight
In addition to the main lighting will not be more than the installation of LED strip along the duct. And he is going to so that it formed a niche near the ceiling, which will be attached LED lighting. Thanks to such a reception occurs smoothly diffused lighting, which gives the ceiling of mystery and thus the light source itself will not be visible from below. The best option - is to create a three-color (RGB) tape with the attached controller and the remote control, so that it is possible to achieve any color by a combination of colors, depending on their brightness.

The most important thing when installing the boxes - it is correct markup level and robust frame structure, then sheathe its drywall is not difficult.
However, the bright lights do not all have to like - many quite enough standard white color. But even here, some manufacturers have provided the possibility to adjust to each person - adjustable brightness and hue (warmer or cooler). The box is made of plasterboard - it is a universal design, which in addition to the decorative properties, can carry and practical.
- Hiding the wires;
- The formation of the cavity for the subsequent installation of fixtures comfortable;
- Hiding ventilation pipes, as well as various irregularities and defects in the ceiling;
- Additional insulation and thermal insulation (if appropriate under the drywall underlay materials).
After these advantages would be desirable to directly take up the construction of plasterboard niches for illumination.
