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.
When you begin the search, you will find different types of tiles to decorate the ceiling of your home. However, do not act on impulse and buy whatever has caught your fancy. Try to gather some information about the tiles before making any decision. If you are searching for some unique quality you can opt for Acoustical tiles. This tile reduces the noise. This type of tile is famous for the ability to soak sound. It is said that this tile is made from glass and starch. White is the usual color of the tile. However, you will find this type of tile in some other colors also.
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.
