Previously, the fireplace in the house served only for one purpose - the heating of the room. Today, a fireplace will be an ornament of any house.
Now the fireplaces are a very popular decorative element, which can create the feeling that you are not in a simple city apartment, but in the hall of a chic mansion. It creates a warm and cozy atmosphere in the house, brings to each interior its specific zest.
In the building shops now you can buy a ready-made electric fireplace. However, it will be much more pleasant to make a drywall fireplace with your own hands. It's quite simple.
When using gypsum cardboard, it can create a virtually complete imitation of a traditional wood-burning fireplace. In addition, the decision to create a fireplace from plasterboard can be dictated from a purely practical point of view.
After all, after repairs in the house, there are almost always pieces of gypsum board and metal profile – they can be used to create a fireplace with your own hands.
Below is a fairly detailed instruction for the work.
How to make Drywall fireplace
To collect a fireplace from plasterboard you need the following materials and tools:
- metallic profile;
- metal screws;
- screws for gypsum board;
- angle grinder;
- scissors for metal;
- building level;
Mounting the frame of the fireplace takes place in three stages:
- Measurement and marking of the necessary pieces of the profile.
- Their cutting.
- Connecting profiles in a single structure
- Measure tape measure on the frame.
- With a pencil mark the desired size on the drywall.
- Using the knife, cut out the appropriate pieces.
- Screws attach the plasterboard to the frame.
Now you can do the finishing. Usually the masters advise:
- Apply artificial stone or tiles.
- Putty and paint.
- Decorate with decorative film.
In addition, decorative plasters can be used to decorate the fireplaces. On drywall sheets a layer of plaster is applied. On still not hardened plaster trowel or spatula form stones orbricks.
Also, the fireplace is decorated with heat-resistant ceramic tiles.
The drywall fireplace will always be a wonderful decoration in any home. He gives solidarity to the room, introduces a unique charm of aristocracy. The fireplace perfectly fits into any interior styles, perfectly emphasizes all the design features.
Decorative fireplace made of plasterboard with their own hands is easy to assemble, and this design can perform a practical function – serve as an additional source of heat.
