You have the option of going more traditional with a smooth texture, semi- smooth, or a popcorn style ceiling. Plain ceilings can be enhanced without paint if you wish, but before launching into those aspects let's look a bit more at paint. The paint you choose should match the rest of the room's decor and the walls. It doesn't have to be the same color, but something that will meld well. Murals are still a possibility if you have a painter or you have the talent to create an image you will want to live with. A common option is Trompe l'oeil painting as it adds a bit of gusto to the ceiling.
First, let us begin with a little background about tin ceiling tiles. Pressed or embossed tin ceilings were very popular during the Victorian Era as an affordable substitute for the plaster-designed ceilings found in wealthy European homes. Thin metal sheets of tin, copper or stainless steel were stamped with intricate patterns and often painted white to resemble the more expensively-produced, hand-carved or molded plaster ceilings. Companies in Ohio, New York and Pennsylvania mass produced thin metal plate during the late 1800s and created numerous patterns from which buyers could choose.
If you have a room that could benefit from a ceiling light but there's no existing fixture, you shouldn't let that discourage you. Have a professional contractor or electrician come in and give you an estimate of the time and cost involved. You won't want to do this type of job yourself. Not only is working with high-voltage wiring dangerous, it's often prohibited in some areas. You'll have to check with your local building authorities about any code requirements before you begin.
