It is said that "Everything Old Becomes New Again". It reinvents itself and becomes fashionable again, perhaps because it was so fashionable in the first place. Fashion goes in and out of style as modern ideas are introduced to the market. But the popular styling's of the past always cycle back into modern contemporary culture. The Tin Ceiling exemplifies this concept.
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.
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.
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.
