One way to add interest to a white ceiling is to create geometric focal points of color, over various spots in the home. This can include painting an oval over the dining area or a contrasting square over a seating area in a living room. This figure will most often be painted in the same colors as the walls or flooring, to tie the entire space together. This idea of unity can be carried even further by painting the walls and the ceiling different shades of the same color. If the ceiling is painted a slightly lighter shade, it will make the features fall away from the room, giving a low ceiling the illusion of being much higher up. The reverse is also true where a towering ceiling painted in a darker tone will seem to fall in on the room, making even overwhelmingly large spaces seem cozy.
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.
Pressed tin tiles can be used in any room of your home. Much the same way people use vinyl floor tiles all over the place. They even make tin bathroom tiles. These tiles would look especially good in the kitchen though, and you can get matching back splashes from many companies so you can have an integrated look. You can get these tiles from a number of different companies, including Armstrong. They usually come as two foot by two foot tiles, or two foot by four foot tiles, although some places do sell one foot by one foot tiles as well. It is a good idea to get a good quality tile that will look great and last a long time.
