One of the biggest lighting problems in many homes is the lack of a central light fixture in large rooms. Some living rooms, bathrooms and some family rooms and dens often have no ceiling light at all, but instead use things like floor lamps and table lamps. It's most likely that these homes were built with an eye toward cutting costs, as it would have taken a little extra time and expense to install a light fixture in these rooms.
Tin ceiling tiles can be used to give a whole different look to your ceiling. They can be purchased in a number of different finishes, including white, brass, chrome, and copper. The white ones are even paintable if you would like to have another color. They come in a variety of different patterns, including floral circles, panels, fans, and vines, or they come in a variety of textures or as smooth tiles. Many have the look of antique tin ceiling tiles.
If you have a choice, you should not let your ceilings be sealed in with popcorn or other textured treatments. This limits your freedom by making painting and other decorative treatments practically impossible. Instead, choose a nice, flat, standard colored paint treatment for your ceilings, which will allow you to change the style and colors later on. If your ceiling already has a textural treatment that you want to remove, you should consult your local hardware store for the best methods.
Tin ceiling popularity dominated early 1900s ceiling decor as an affordable alternative to expensive, artistic plaster. The industrialization of manufacturing allowed intricate plastering and ornamental stucco decoration to be accurately replicated in tin plated steel. Tin-plated steel could be pressed with embossed designs identical to the beauty of sculptured plaster, yet tin ceiling panels could be massed produced at a fraction of the cost of custom plastered ceilings. Also, the installation of tin ceilings could be completed in a day, where custom plaster ceilings took months or sometimes years to complete.
In most homes people have white ceilings, either sprayed on or in the form of white ceiling tiles. This can be a little boring, even when the ceiling has some texture to it. Some people do something a little different and paint their ceiling a different color, but this isn't all that common. Another option that can really make a ceiling stand out is the use of tin or faux tin tiles.
