The basement is usually the most neglected part of your home, and the most neglected part is the basement ceiling. It is where you can find pipes, ducts and wires that keep your house running smoothly. Nowadays, a lot people now want to utilize the space and one of their huge obstacles is the ceiling. There are some common ways to conceal an ugly ceiling that have proven to be effective. Although you have to exert some effort to see beautiful results, it is worth it. One of the easiest solutions to your unsightly ceiling problem is to install a suspended or dropped ceiling. They consist of a grid work of metal bars in the shape of an upside-down T, which are suspended on wires from the overhead joists.
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.
Unlike older tiles which rust, newer tiles are often made with a special powder finish which is rust-proof, allowing for indoor and outdoor use. But even "cleaned up" older tiles look and feel differently than new ones. Collectors who handle lots of these detailed works of art learn to distinguish the differences. While true collectors mix and match their collections with different examples of tiles, homeowners who may want to remodel a kitchen ceiling or frame a fireplace need to find multiple tiles. They generally look toward new versions of these handsome decorative items.
