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.
Besides using tiles for the ceiling, homeowners often add tile as a kitchen backsplash or a medallion for hanging fixtures. Some creative folks even use ceiling tiles as faux headboards. Another group of individuals who look for vintage tiles is artists and crafters. These talented folks make handsome objets d'art out of these architectural salvaged masterpieces.
Playing with ceiling shape which aligned with the concept of building design will create the impression of space which is not monotonous. This concern becomes attention for many people when they got bored with the conventional form of flat ceiling. Ceiling shape is basically influenced by several factors such as the concept of building design, space interior, ceiling materials to be used, the elevation of ceiling height and size of space that will be shaded by ceiling. To help you in choosing ceiling, you should first determine the basic form.
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.
Doing this will make sure that all of the colors that are in the room you are redecorating or remodeling will all tie together in the end. Be sure that you do not choose the same color for the ceiling tiles that you will have on the walls. When you have too much of the same color in the room, you will find that it can be domineering and takes away from the feeling and comfort of the room.
