On the ceiling under the curtain is mounted hidden box-groove. The best thing to do to use the most ordinary plasterboard primed and glued film. You can even install it on a regular screws or anchors, only caps should also be hidden (the ones that are part of the profile).

The hidden niche in the suspended ceiling is done with wide rims only 5-10 centimeters. You can do more if the curtains will close it window opening or, for example, access to the balcony, loft ladder. They are installed and ceiling cornices, which are the most common metal profile with a groove.

It is necessary to pay attention to the so-called baguette cornices.

From the usual, they are different:

  • presence decorative front side;
  • curtains wound onto the ledge in several layers;
  • the sides are projecting parts of baguette (and the characteristic curve of the tree).

But this option is suitable only if you are installing on a very wide window or balcony face hides. In the latter case it will be necessary to carefully select the composition of drapes and curtains to exit and was comfortable, and hid behind a decorated canvas.

Niche under the curtain in Stretch Ceilings: Options

If you plan to hang the curtains is a hidden niche, then mount the cornice in this case, the ceiling on capital. Close it can whitewash or that of the film itself (better to glue based on polyurethane). You can generally leave the slot just a few centimeters, which will be closed by a wooden beam or oil paint.

Another simple option for niche - is the installation of a piece of wood. Fastened to the wall it is not, namely the ceiling. In the cavity of the metal profiles is easy to install wooden beam and attached to it the right ledge. Deepening niche in this case will be minimal.

But to tie a hidden eaves-profile screws for better concrete (or brick). That's only necessary to choose the color such that it completely when combined with a touch of stretch film (or plaster ceiling finishes if it was done).

In this case, will be:

  • open access to the window (where you can place potted plants);
  • the possibility to open the window;
  • also set and blinds (to adjust the sunlight in the room).

Deficiencies in the hidden niche only one - the difficulty in attaching the curtains themselves. The procedure just takes a lot of time, because the hooks will be located in a small and narrow niche.

How to create a niche itself? Of the same metal or plastic profile rails with grooves (when the film assembly carried thereby). The easiest option - to set the profile perpendicular to the capital ceiling. Empty his chamber at the same time turned into the ceiling. If the width between the film and the substrate is too small, the transverse profile groove is created with the selection of the thickness (no less than 12 millimeters). But when the projection is scheduled to make less - the better of him and did refuse to pay attention to the design of other eaves. What fit in this case? If you want to get the result when the curtain falls down without a gap to the ceiling, it is best - Framing option.

Niche inside recommended decorate building foam or mineral cotton fiber. If the ceiling recess, it will improve its sound insulation. Otherwise, it will fall drastically in the apartment.

You can create a niche and on the basis of wooden decorative timber that is mounted on the ceiling. With its back side mounted ledge that represents the same metal protruding above the groove in the tongues. In such constructions mount curtains advantageously performed on the rivets.

At what distance from the ceiling to hang the curtain: the choice

In principle, you can hang the curtain at any distance from the ceiling. When using open eaves do not have to guess - there indent adjusted automatically (because the ledge is attached to the ceiling and not the wall).

If you use a hidden niche out there to fix the curtains should be at the highest possible levelIf you use a hidden niche out there to fix the curtains should be at the highest possible level

That is, the external fasteners in general will not be visible and will have an impression that the fabric falls straight from the stretched ceiling film. Allowed to indent only in the case of baguette eaves. But he will still be concealed trim strip (wood or plastic).

So, when choosing curtains fixing distances can use the following guidelines:

  • Ideal - the same level of a stretch ceiling.
  • Hidden niche too close the curtains, close to the box.
  • Himself cornice can also hide stretch film. In this case, only the groove is visible. There will be no padding at all.
  • If the composition is supplemented with lambrequins, then there is better to consult with the designer. For example, the decorative cloth is better to hang up, whereas curtains or drapes can be omitted below. There is already to consider the style of the interior.
