Which is better: stretch ceiling or plasterboard?

Question: stretch ceiling or plasterboard depends on individual needs and purpose of the rooms. Drywall is the preferred solution for unheated rooms. There, the temperature drops below 5°C (it is worth noting that in the case of foil, this often results in the loss of warranty). In the context of stretch fabrics, their properties allow integrity to be maintained even in low temperature conditions.

If we are dealing with rooms where frequent changes of decor are desirable and we strive to minimize the time necessary to carry out these changes, films or stretch fabrics present significant advantages, because the process of their installation or replacement is determined in hours, not days.

Stretch ceiling or plasterboard – ease of modernization

When hiding pipes, cables and other elements that require intervention in the future, e.g. recuperation, the use of foil or fabric seems more appropriate. They allow access without damaging the surface. Just unclip a piece of the shell to make the repair. Whereas in the case of drywall, this either requires significant intervention in the construction or can lead to damage to the material.

Indeed, there are many aspects to consider when making a choice, as even seemingly minor issues such as potential flooding can influence the decision towards one solution or the other.
