How to glue the ceiling plinth: installation features of fillets of different types


Only to a person who never glued a ceiling plinth, it may seem that it is easy and simple. In fact, as in the case of wallpaper, baguettes and wall tiles - the corner is the most important and difficult place. Today we will talk about the practical nuances of how to properly glue the ceiling plinth in the corners, so that you can do it, like the professionals.

Selection of materials

Initially, you need to decide on the material of baseboards. Today they are made from:

Most likely you bought a plinth of polyurethane or foam. They are lightweight, inexpensive and have a very wide range of variations. However, skirting foam plastic bend badly and "do not like" moisture, that is, they are not suitable for the bathroom.

Narrow baseboards are used in a room with a low ceiling, and wide ones with a high one.

Polyurethane also retain their functionality in rooms with moist air, and are very flexible, but they are more expensive than foam.

Wooden and plaster plinths can be installed only if the walls and ceiling in the room are perfectly smooth. But in some cases, as a rule, only wood or plaster products are suitable for creating a unique interior.

When choosing a material, it is necessary to take into account not only the interior of the room and the recommendations of the designers (if you use their services), but also the height of the ceilings in the room.

Here is one of the masters in detail about the tricks of scoring skirtings and gluing them in the corners:

You can use this composition both as glue and as a putty, sticking baguettes and smearing the gaps between the walls and baseboards for two hours. The resulting adhesive is based on water, therefore it has properties that are inherent in acrylic glue, and is not suitable for rooms with high humidity.

The procedure for sticking molding

At repair, as a rule, two ways of installation of a ceiling baguette practice. The first technique is that the baseboard is glued after gluing the room with wallpaper. In the second method, the molding is installed after leveling the ceiling and walls and priming them. The second method is certainly preferable, although it is more laborious.

First, you do not have to re-install the ceiling baguette when changing wallpaper. Secondly, in the presence of uneven walls, the gap between the fillet and the wall will look very ugly, which is much easier to close up before pasting with wallpaper, since there are no fears that you will stain the walls. Therefore, before you glue the ceiling plinth, it is not necessary to glue the wallpaper, so you can get a much better result.

Before fixing the plinth, you should definitely pay attention to the choice of the place for gluing the first plank in the corner, because the next one will be glued to it. How to glue, and the angle will look. It is better to glue the plinth in such a sequence: first, glue the segments in the corners and only after that you can glue the baguette around the perimeter. If the strips in the corners are glued exactly, then there will be no difficulties on straight sections of the wall.

In the case of stretched canvas, it is definitely better to glue the plinth before pasting the surface with wallpaper. Choose a better PVC plinth, which has a small weight. Do not attach the baguette to the stretch ceiling - only to the wall. Better cloth pre-protect with polyethylene. The rest of the technology of fixing the plinth is similar to that described above, with such an amendment that it is better to take a special glue instead of a sealant or putty.

If you decide to equip the decorative lighting of the room with the help of the ceiling plinth, then remember that there are no radical differences between the plinth gluing procedure without the illumination and with it, in general. If you want to decorate your room in this way, then, before fixing the ceiling plinth, lay electrical wires for the backlight.

As a rule, LEDs are used. Next, the wires must be closed with a plinth, while remember that we glue the ceiling plinth not to the ceiling, but to the wall. From the ceiling baguette to the ceiling surface should remain some distance. That's all the tricks in sticking plinth in different cases.

For sticking moldings you can apply a finishing putty or glue. In the first case, the manufacturing company does not have much value. If you want to hide communication communications under the ceiling plinth, attach them to the wall or ceiling in advance. In this case, as with the arrangement of decorative lighting with the help of a ceiling profile, the baguette will be attached only to the wall. If the wire is to mount the profile during installation, it will be very difficult to glue it.

Immediately before installation, moisten the place of attachment with primer or water on the ceiling and wall. This way you can prevent the substance from drying out quickly and ease the mounting process. Next, dilute the putty and apply a thin layer with a small spatula across the entire back side of the fillet, so that there are no voids in the corner when it fits.

Plinth attach to the ceiling with one side, the other - on the wall and press it. Remove the putty gently with a finger or a spatula. Then remove the putty from the baguette with a moistened cloth. The joints of moldings also smear putty and wash up with a wet cloth.

In addition, you can glue the ceiling plinth with glue. Sticker ceiling plinth using glue is easier than using putty, but needs to invest additional funds. Putty almost always remains after leveling the ceiling and walls almost, and the glue will have to buy. For example, for a room with a size of up to 20 square meters you need two packs of acrylic sealant.

Remember that for fixing the plinth on the glue, the walls and ceiling must have a high-quality surface for adhesion. Glue is usually applied with a spatula or a pistol. Glue a thin strip on the back side of the plinth, which is intended to fit to the ceiling or wall. If you have a stretch ceiling, then the adhesive should be applied only to the bottom of the baguette, which will be directly pressed against the wall.

After you have stuck the ceiling plinth, wait a bit, and then firmly press the strip to the place of gluing. Clay grabs quickly. After pressing by hands during the fastening, traces and dirty spots may remain on the ceiling plinth. To avoid prints on the baguette, you need to wash your hands more often.

Speaking of excess composition must be wiped with a dry cloth. To make the corner of the plinth, use the cut piece of fillets in such a way that it repeats the profile of the already cut, and glue them together. Repeat gluing technology until you stick all the strips across the entire ceiling.

How much should I buy a plinth?

It is necessary to measure the perimeter of the room. For example, take a room of 5 by 4 meters (20m2). The perimeter of the room is 18 meters. The length of one fillet is 2 meters, which means you need to buy 8 fillets + 1 in stock, for a total of 9 pieces.

The higher the ceiling, the wider you can buy a fillet, and she won't seem overweight. If the ceiling is about 3 meters high, then a 5 cm wide fillet will do.

Types of baseboards and their cost

  • polyurethane 300-500 rubles apiece
  • plastic from 40 rubles apiece
  • expanded polystyrene from 20 rubles apiece

When buying a plank you need to pay attention:

  • To the plinth were the same color from one batch
  • Without defects
  • No curvature

How to cut a corner and make the workpiece?

First you need to understand what the angles in the room and mark for each type of their workpiece (they are different!).

  • Outer corner - in this case, the length of the base of the workpiece will be equal to the length of the span, and the cut angle will be blunt (that is, the upper edge of the workpiece will be longer than the length of the lower edge, 135 degrees).
  • Inner corner - in this case, the length of the base of the workpiece will be equal to the length of the span, and the cut angle will be sharp (the upper edge of the workpiece is shorter than the lower edge, 45 degrees).

Blanks are cut with the help of the miter box and a hacksaw on the markup. To verify the correctness of the cut blanks, you can dock “your creation” on the floor. If all the angles converge correctly, then you can proceed to gluing and dock them already in place.

To verify the correctness of the cut blanks, simulate "your creation" on the floor. If all the angles converge correctly, then you can proceed to gluing.

If the corners do not converge, we make a new billet - for this we bought the fillets with a margin.

Often the angles between the walls in the rooms are not equal to 90 degrees. In such cases, you need to mark the workpiece "in place" and cut off the angle without using the miter box. To do this paper and cardboard patternsand then the fillet is cut out with a sharp stationery or a shoe knife.

How to glue the ceiling plinth before pasting with wallpaper


  • Do not stain your wallpaper
  • It is more convenient to stick a plinth evenly, if the wall is uneven, leveling with putty on the go (we wrote about finishing putty for wallpaper in this article)
  • To change the wallpaper, you do not need to dismantle the plinth (by the way, read a good article about liquid wallpaper here)
  • The fillet sticks to the bare wall more than to the wallpaper.

Preparation of putty mixture

We prepare a mixture of putty and PVA glue for gluing the ceiling plinth to the wall and the ceiling, as well as for sealing up the slots and corner joints. 4 pieces of plaster and 1 part of PVA glue knead water until sour cream, let stand 5 minutes and mix again. After that you can use the mixture for 1.5 hours.

Apply the putty in the center of the fillets along the entire length, press for 10 seconds, let go, remove the excess mixture.

  1. Dust-free workpiece and wall / ceiling section before applying glue.
  2. Apply the putty in the center of the fillets along the entire length, press for 10 seconds, let go, remove the excess mixture.
  3. We start to glue on the corner and from the wall opposite the door.
  4. You can apply a line around the perimeter with the help of a laser plotter and glue a fillet on it.
  5. We join in the corners of pre-made blanks. If a spans of more than 2 meters, we make a straight joint of fillets.
  6. The cracks in the course of gluing close up the prepared mixture.
  7. The next day after the putty has dried, sand the bumps and cover the baseboard with water-based paint.

  • Can be done at any time and even with existing repairs
  • No need to get dirty and mix
  • You can change the skirting at any time, if you are tired
  1. Dust-free workpiece and wall / ceiling section before applying glue.
  2. We start to glue on the corner and from the wall that is opposite the door.
  3. Apply glue in the center of fillets along the entire length, hold for 1 minute, remove the excess glue.
  4. Well presses in corners and joints.
  5. Fill the gap with acrylic sealant, remove the excess finger.
  6. The main goal is to create the most even seam. If a smooth seam does not work on the eye, it is necessary to glue the masking tape and create a seam along it.

Masking joints and coloring

If, after gluing the ceiling plinth between the planks, there are small gaps, it is absolutely not scary, because they can be easily eliminated by rubbing white sealant. If you have not whitewashed or painted the ceiling, then the next one will be the best option.

Light putty need to go through all the glued strips, promazyvaya them as a dyeing compound, and after drying, you should remove the excess with a small skin or a special sanding sponge for plastering. After such a final finish, the ceiling and moldings will become one, and you, in turn, will not find a single gap.

After you have stuck the ceiling plinth and have eliminated all the flaws, you can proceed to painting the plinth. The process of painting the plinth is optional, but if you want your ceiling to give a finished and more attractive look, then you need to paint the plinth.

But if the plinth is white, then it must be painted, otherwise it will begin to acquire a yellowish tint over time. For this purpose, as a rule, water-based, acrylic or latex dyes are used. You can take and paintwork, but the surface of the baguette before applying should be primed.

As a rule, the coloring for the best setting of the glue should be done not earlier than a day after the pasting procedure. The most practical coloring composition is acrylic or water-based paint. Gently brush each fillet with a brush so that everything around does not paint over. The best would be if you do this before the wallpaper sticker.

We have now figured out how to glue the ceiling plinth. Consider with this all the subtleties of installation, be sure to carry out the installation before the final wall finishing, start from the corners, and then fix the baguette in a straight line. When fixing the molding under the decorative lighting or tensioning fabric, the technology will be different, but not fundamentally, it is important to remember some nuances, and the work will go like clockwork.

How to smoothly cut off the corner of the ceiling plinth

When we evaluate a new repair, we unwittingly direct our eyes, first of all, at the ceiling. No matter how breathtaking the interior would not be, its assessment from the curves of the joints of the finish will fall sharply. In this article we will describe the instructions about the ceiling plinth - how to make the angle of the dock perfectly smooth.

Having completed the decoration of the walls and the ceiling, there will unwittingly remain ugly transitions between them. To do this, and use fillets in the transition of the two materials. When installing them, it is important to maintain the evenness and accuracy of the joints.

The first method - using the cloth

Professional barrels with a swivel hacksaw For a long time already carpenters have come up with such a special box with cuts - the barrow. It is easy to recognize it, among the variety of repair equipment, by its characteristic appearance. This is the most convenient and indispensable device in the decision, the question that has arisen, how to cut the corners of the ceiling plinth.

The body usually looks in the shape of a tray with vertical holes for the hacksaw. It can be made of wood, metal or plastic. This tool represents the most ancient and simplest tool of a carpenter, for cutting wooden parts at an angle of 90 and 45 degrees. There are types of such a device for professional work, with a turning mechanism, in which the cutting tool can be rotated and fixed in any position.
How to cut off the ceiling plinth
Ceiling corners can be divided into internal and external, the method of docking on them is slightly different.

If necessary, you can make a half case with your own hands. To do this, you can use 3 scraps of plywood or boards of the same size. First you need to attach them in the form of an inverted letter "P", and make a marking of the corners. Then, according to the marking, cuts under the hacksaw are cut almost to the very bottom, and the boards are twisted.

Inner corner

  • We make the right measurements.
  • After that, we set the baseboard plinth into the block so that this position exactly coincides with the placement on the ceiling.
  • The plinth should be firmly pressed against the opposite wall of the squander. Hold and hold down with your left hand.
  • Put the hacksaw at an angle of 45 degrees in a special hole and cut off the part.

  • Adjacent detail must be cut in the same way, only in a mirror image, as shown in the photo.
  • When cutting soft materials (PVC, polystyrene foam), use a hacksaw or a regular construction knife. Then your work will be neat and with smooth edges. For precise cutting, you need to start cutting it off the front.

    Outer corner

    • Measure the length of the plinth from the nearest wall to the outer corner, leave a line on the inside of the pencil, indicating the desired length. Keep in mind that the edge (its top) should go out a bit.
    • Move the baseboard into the trunk and cut it.
    • The adjacent bar should also be measured with a margin, and cut to the first part in mirror image.

    We try on the ceiling plinth - the docking of parts should be perfectly flat. If the result is not achieved, and there are protrusions at the joints - you can trim the edges with a regular knife to a perfect docking.
    Check the smooth docking
    На видео в этой статье, хорошо описаны все нюансы:

    Способ второй — без дополнительных инструментов

    Для внутреннего угла можно использовать самый простой способ идеальной стыковки – путем разметки на потолке. Еще один пример, как вырезать угол красивым и ровным.

    1. Attach the fillet to the ceiling, tightly pressing its flat edge into the corner.
    2. Draw a line along the long side of the skirting board on the ceiling.

    Do the same with adjacent parts on the other side.

    Mark the intersection of the lines.

    The result is a flat angle of 45 degrees, if you draw a line from the point of intersection to the edge of the part. This way how to cut a plinth is available to everyone, without special tools.

    other methods

    With a good eye and accuracy of the hands, you can use a homemade pattern, reminiscent of the imitation of the cloth. To do this, take a thin plank or thick plywood, and draw a layout in the form of a horizontal rectangle. Using the protractor, mark 45 degrees on the right and left side of the rectangle. Draw the lines connecting the opposite edges.

    Now you can solve the problem of how to cut off the ceiling plinth using this layout. The actions are simple and similar to the description above in the first version. Only the ceiling parts should not be inserted, but overlaid on the drawing and combine the hacksaw with the layout layout.

    Special components for docking
    Installing ceiling plinth, you can bypass the question of how to cut the corner side. In a situation where you do not want to cut anything, if you are a woman and love beauty, not carpentry, you can go the other way. Pick up a plinth for your decoration, to which you will find in the store a suitable part for the joint covering the joint. This way will save your time and effort.

    How to glue the ceiling plinth in the corners?

    The best way to prepare ceiling fillets for mounting in the corners is to use a canister. This is a special stand with markup for cutting baseboards. U-shaped form with deep slits in the side walls allows you to make cutting at a right angle and an angle of 45 degrees. The workpiece is placed in a certain position, a special saw or a hacksaw for metal is trimmed.

    The position is selected depending on the type of angle: external or internal.

    Getting Started:

    1. We start from the left side of the outer corner. The lower part of the ceiling should be on top in the box. Cutting is as follows:

  • The right outer corner is cut off like this:
  • For the left inner we lay the panel with the bottom part upwards, the trimming is done in this position:
  • The inner right corner is done like this:

    The general scheme for cutting will simplify the process of preparing the corners. Practice your work on short pieces before starting work.

    Attach the workpiece to the ceiling. Apply the adhesive mixture to one side of the panel, then to the other. For joints it is recommended to use special mixtures. Usually they are sold in cylinders with a gun. Such a solution will not allow the seam to crack when temperature drops. Skirting can slightly expand and contract.

  • Check the position.
  • Remove excess glue with a spatula and washcloth (cloth).

    How to glue the corners of the ceiling plinth without the bunk?

    To trim the fillets, you can do without the body in two cases: by making a markup on the wall or by drawing a body. Choose a way that is more convenient for you.

    Algorithm "wall" trim baseboards:

    1. The edge of the plinth is cut at an angle of 90 degrees, applied to the corner. Draw a line along the contour with a pencil.
    2. The first bar is removed, the second is applied. Again, make a mark on the wall.
    3. Now you have a point of intersection of the lines, you need to transfer it to the baseboard. We connect this mark with the edge of the element - we get a line for the slice.

    You can draw a drawing sheet on paper, cardboard or blackboard.

    1. On the selected basis, draw 2 parallel lines, using a protractor, set aside angles at 45 degrees.

  • Markup will be enough for work. The work is as follows: a fillet is applied along a parallel line, cutting is carried out under one of the corners.
  • Note that not always the angle between the walls is 90 degrees, respectively, and trimming is not 45 degrees. Before you glue the ceiling plinth in uneven corners, you should use the drawing of the miter box.

    If you make a mistake when joining corners, the situation can be corrected with the help of special fittings - internal and external corners. The ends of the panels are inserted into the product.

    Fittings can be decorated with decorative.

    Cutting and sticking ceiling skirting does not take much time. The main thing is attentiveness. If the surface after glue is slightly damaged, glue remains, all these places can be corrected with the help of fine-grained grinding.

    Upon completion, an effective wall / ceiling transition is obtained.

    How to properly glue the ceiling plinth - instructions

    The junction of the ceiling and walls often requires additional decoration with decorative elements. Most often for these purposes are used ceiling plinths. Such a simple element can significantly soften the line of fracture of two surfaces.

    In this article, we will talk about how to properly glue the ceiling plinth, as well as how to dock it on the inner and outer corners of the walls.

    Ceiling fillets can be made of wood, polyurethane foam, gypsum or foam. Regardless of the type, the ceiling skirting sticker is carried out on the same principle, only the cool composition is subject to change (read: “The Galtel is what it is”).

    Installing the ceiling plinth

    For installation of foam, polymeric and wooden fillets used different polymeric adhesives.

    They are divided into three groups:

    • adhesives based on aqueous polymers and dispersions,
    • adhesives based on plastic polymers and organic solvents,
    • adhesives based on liquid polymer hardeners.

    In most cases, the gluing of the ceiling plinths is carried out with the help of adhesive substances of the first and third groups. These include adhesives PVA, Moment, Dragon, Bustilat and silicone sealants (more: "How to glue the ceiling plinth - instruction").

    But on this method of installation of ceiling plinths are not limited. Plaster and foam fillets can be glued to the putty (read: "How to glue the ceiling plinth"). The prepared solution is also used to seal the gaps between the profiles and the wall. Wooden plinth is installed not only on glue for ceiling plinth. but also on screws or screws.

    Sticker ceiling plinths on polymer adhesive

    First you need to properly prepare the ceiling and walls, as they must have high adhesion rates. To achieve this goal, surfaces are primed if they have been plastered and filled. If the base is wooden or plastic, then it is necessary to remove all possible grease stains from it (read also: “How to glue the molding to the wall”).

    Docking internal and external corners

    Joining adjacent elements, it is necessary to avoid the formation of gaps. Let's take a closer look at the installation of baseboards on the inner and outer corners of the room.

    First of all, it should be remembered that when joining the ceiling plinths in the inner corner, the lower part of the elements will be longer than the top. When docking fillets on the outer corner, everything is exactly the opposite - the upper side will be longer (more: “How to kill the ceiling plinth”).

    For cutting corners, a special carpentry tool is used. Its use allows you to cut corners on a pattern of 45, 65, 67.5 and 90 degrees. It is not recommended to cut the plinth "by eye". Even professionals can not always pick the right angle, not to mention amateur (how to cut the ceiling plinth in the corners).

    How to stick the ceiling plinth on the inner corner? First you need to install the plinth of the left side of the corner in the box. It is inserted on the left side, while pressing to the neighbor side. In the stencil angle of 45 degrees insert a hacksaw for metal and cut the fillet from right to left. To cut the corner of the right side of the plinth, it is inserted from the right side, while the cutting direction is from left to right (read also: “It is important to know how to join the corners of the ceiling plinth”).

    For cutting outside corners do the same, only in this case the cutting direction changes. For the left side - from left to right, and for the right side - from right to left.

    If you do not have a flush and you do not want to waste time searching for it and acquiring it, then the plinth can be cut according to the stencil drawn on the table. To do this, two parallel lines are drawn on the plane, which are 85 mm apart. After that, these lines mark the square in which the diagonals are drawn. It is these segments that will be the stencil of the angle of 45 degrees (read: “How to cut off the ceiling plinth correctly - it is useful to know“).

    The procedure for cutting corners is identical to working with a mute. Plinth expose the level of the line and it is cut diagonally. At the same time, it is necessary to ensure that the fillet does not block the line, but only comes into contact with it (read also: “How to glue the plinth on the stretch ceiling”).
