Decorative ceiling tile is an item you might want to consider for your next remodeling project, or even for a new home. Many individuals do not realize that the ceiling is noticed by others when they come into your home. Think about it when you are in a new environment don't you look up as well as around to become comfortable with your surroundings. Don't you want to make sure that your ceiling matched the design and feel of the room you tried so hard to create, remember to tie in your ceiling to complete your room design and feel!
With so many reproduced tiles available it may get a little tricky to tell the vintage pieces from the newer models. Older ceiling tin is heavier than the newer version and has surfaces showing lots of rust, dents, chippy paint, rough scaly edges and sharp nail holes. Although reproductions are made to look like the real thing, you will notice that the new items are lighter and smoother and are simply too perfect. Also worth mentioning is that sometimes old tiles appear new when they are not. This can happen when a vintage piece is cleaned and refinished or an original tile is framed with an old door or window trim.
Tin plated steel ceiling panels possessed an additional characteristic that fueled their popularity. They have an hour burn rating at 1300 degrees, which provided an effective fire retardent. In the early 20th century, many first floor stores and shops had apartments homes on the second floor. Tin ceilings installed on the first floor gave the second floor residents adequate time to escape a deadly fire.
As mentioned there are a couple of different ways you can paint your ceiling even using a white or glossy white paint. If you want a pattern, popcorn or other style ceiling you could enhance it with faux wood rafters, crown molding, and even cornices. Wood or faux wood often adds a little to an otherwise boring look, especially in cathedral style ceilings. A popular concept right now is bamboo rafters. You also have ceiling medallions which are highly popular.
