What is coved(folded up) ceiling? Explaining its merit・demerit and real construction work flowing
Hello everyone! This is Office recovery and restoration Dot.Com. website blog personnel in charge.
Our company is an interior decorative finishing construction company professionally of at Ikebukuro, Tokyo, at midpoint,
in all over Kanto area, in charge of all of full set interior decorative finishing construction work, such as LGS (=light gauge steel) work, board work,
cloth・floor finishing work, and so on.
This time, we are thinking of explaining the theme of,
What is coved(folded up) ceiling?
In the first place, as we were in charge of a coved(folded up) ceiling construction work of newly construction work site at a sporting facility,
so this time we are thinking of explaining it as construction work example.
Incidentally, the relative article is as follows.
At the end of our article, we will attach again.
As to other relative construction work example, please take a look at the website here.
(Sorry to say, above two lines are only for Japanese website.)
What is coved(folded up) ceiling?
Coved(folded up) ceiling means, a kind of ceiling whose part is hollowed one round step in the back.
Coving up part is not necessarily at center area. Depending on its design or usage, it may be at the room corner, or only limited to small area.
For many cases, construction work is executed for having designability. The following are main merits and demerits.
Merits of coved(folded up) ceiling
・Its room looks open(Its room looks large).
・Can make impressive ceiling by using accent cloth or painting.
・Can make soft light space by using indirect lighting.
・Can softly separate room without using partition wall.
When human being is at small space, he or she will feel locked up.
By finishing ceiling construction at one step high, open feeling occurs. Then, the room can be made to look large and wide.
Having been installed ceiling light at the ceiling, beam side surface may look brightly.
It is possible to make light contrast at coved(folded up) ceiling on purpose.
In addition, it is also possible to produce like brightly lighting by arranging indirect lighting at the side.
Above picture is the situation of executing coved(folded up) ceiling construction work on the way, explaining in detail later.
It is before painting yet, and lighting equipment is not fixed. The light at coved(folded up) part looks impressive.
With accent cloth and painting, it is also possible to finish the work space with personality by taking in impressive color to the room which seems difficult to adopt as wall paper.
This time, we regret that our explanation cannot be done by using site pictures.
However, if you should search internet for coved(folded up) ceiling, there are really various construction works. So, you can feel design possibilities.
As for the office, you can find construction work impressively finished receptions and waiting rooms and so on.
As for the resident, you can find various ideas of intentionally baring beam and so on.
Demerits of coved(folded up) ceiling
This coved(folded up) ceiling seems to feel full of good things.
However, demerits are destined to be caused naturally too.
Demerits are as follows:
・Dust is easy to be gathered, so cleaning is a nuisance more or less.
・Depending on construction work, coved(folded up) floor ceiling may become low.
・Simply to say, it is costly.
Against horizontally set face ceiling, some vertical face may exist at coved(folded up) ceiling. Dust is easy to be gathered at that part surface.
In the case of fixing indirect lighting or so, it is also necessary to be cautious of dust at that part.
Concerning the above second line demerit of the position becoming low, if the building is newly construction.
probably there seems to be no problem when the plan of making coved(folded up) ceiling is told to the construction work contractor in advance.
In the case of reforming, we recommend you to check it with the construction work contractor.
Concerning costly point, it may seem to depend on each work contractor.
On construction work purely making ceiling high, it seems to enable to introduce for relatively low cost.
However, if executing lighting equipment, painting, cloth sticking or so, that cost should be borne.
So, if you consider to introduce its ceiling, we recommend you to obtain relative quotation.
As a relative word meaning to form a counterpart of coved(folded up) ceiling, there is clipped ceiling.
Literally, clipped ceiling means a kind of construction work of making a part of ceiling by one step low from regular height.
Same as coved(folded up) ceiling, it is executed construction work for designability and for softly dividing a room. Its merits・demerits are similar too.
Depending on construction work, there is a room design which you may wonder whether it fits for coved(folded up) ceiling or clipped ceiling.
So, if you should imagine your ideal, we recommend you to tell that effect to the work contractor in the first place.
As we explained in our top introduction,
our company was also in charge of coved(folded up) ceiling construction work of sporting facility before.
So, we have uploaded relative construction work example in our website.
So, if you are interested in how actual relative construction site situation is like, then we are very happy to let you visit and see it.
We are introducing a picture used for relative construction work site example as below.
Beam can be seen at the center of ceiling. At this work site, both sides are largely folded.
We explained coved(folded up) ceiling this time so far as above.
Summarizing briefly as follows:
・Coved(folded up) ceiling means a kind of ceiling work constructed whose part is a step added coving and making high.
・This ceiling is constructed in order to make better designability and open feeling.
・Can be raised as demerits of dust easy to gather, possibility of upper floor position becoming low.
・As an opposite meaning term, there is clipper ceiling.
As for reform construction work, there are certain cases which can be done・cannot be done.
