Ceiling in the kitchen and bathroom, is it better to install aluminum gusset or gypsum line?

The kitchen and the bathroom are two spaces that are easier to get wet at home, so in most cases, these two spaces are made of suspended ceilings with better moisture-proof effects such as aluminum gussets; In addition, there is a word in the decoration industry called “gold kitchen and silver bathroom”, so when making the ceiling of the kitchen and bathroom, there are still many problems to consider.

Below I analyze those things about the kitchen and bathroom ceiling, you can refer to it!

1. How to choose the material of kitchen and bathroom ceiling?

Ceiling materials suitable for kitchens and bathrooms, mainly aluminum gusset and gypsum board, the advantages and disadvantages of these two materials are: aluminum gusset has good moisture resistance and is a more practical choice; Gypsum board, on the other hand, can maintain unity with the texture of the space, and is more suitable for people who pursue beauty.

(1) Practical aluminum gusset

Aluminum gusset plate has excellent moisture-proof performance, like kitchen, bathroom such a space that is prone to moisture, ceiling aluminum gusset will be more durable.

(2) Beautiful selection of gypsum board

The ceiling of gypsum board can be made of consistent material with the ceiling of other spaces, like many hotel bathrooms are suspended with gypsum board, which is relatively more beautiful.

(3) Open kitchens are considered separately

Now many people will make an open kitchen, so that the kitchen is connected to other spaces, this situation is more recommended to make a plasterboard ceiling.

2. How high is the kitchen and bathroom ceiling?

How high is the ceiling in the kitchen and bathroom? What issues need to be considered for ceiling height?

(1) The height of the window roof

If the windows in the kitchen and bathroom are relatively high, the top height is generally 2.2-2.4 meters high, and this suitable ceiling can be slightly higher (or flush) the top of the window.

(2) Reserved height of electrical equipment

Electrical equipment such as aluminum gusset ceiling lamp (2cm±), exhaust fan (10-20cm), bath bomb (15cm+), exhaust pipe, etc., will also have a certain relationship with the ceiling in the installation suitability, especially when the floor height is tight, the size of these equipment must be taken into account.

(3) Whether the bathroom has a caisson or not

If it is the same floor drainage, the caisson of the bathroom will generally have a height of about 35cm, according to the height of 2.7 meters, then the height of the bathroom is only 2.35 meters, if you plan to install exhaust fans, bath bombs and other equipment, then the final height of the ceiling is estimated to be only more than 2.1 meters, if the height of the family is relatively tall, it may not be installed.

3. Process connection problem:

The ceiling of the kitchen and bathroom space will have a certain connection with the wall tiles and hanging cabinets in the connection, so how to connect better?

(1) Hanging cabinet and ceiling

Like the hanging cabinet in the kitchen, the sealing plate of the hanging cabinet is generally attached to the ceiling ceiling, so that the top of the hanging cabinet will not leave a sanitary dead corner where sewing ash is left.

(2) Wall tiles and suspended ceilings

The wall tiles of the kitchen and bathroom are generally not attached to the ceiling, and the specific height is that the height of the ceiling can be planned in advance, and the wall tiles can be pasted higher than the ceiling.

4. Precautions for water and electricity:

There is a lot of water and electricity involved in the kitchen and bathroom, and the ceiling is no exception.

(1) Bath bomb wire

If you plan to install a bath bomb, then plan it before decorating, because the bath bomb has more power, and you should leave a thicker when leaving wires.

(2) Water and electricity separation

The water and electricity layout of the bathroom is generally water to the ground, electricity to the ceiling, the ground is too wet, it is not recommended that the wire go to the ground.

The ceiling of the kitchen and bathroom, you can choose aluminum gusset and gypsum board, I personally recommend installing aluminum gusset, after all, the kitchen and bathroom space is humid, the oil stain is large, and the aluminum gusset is more convenient for later maintenance; Of course, if you are more in pursuit of the aesthetic effect of the space, then you can also choose plasterboard independently.
