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.
Tin ceiling popularity dominated early 1900s ceiling decor as an affordable alternative to expensive, artistic plaster. The industrialization of manufacturing allowed intricate plastering and ornamental stucco decoration to be accurately replicated in tin plated steel. Tin-plated steel could be pressed with embossed designs identical to the beauty of sculptured plaster, yet tin ceiling panels could be massed produced at a fraction of the cost of custom plastered ceilings. Also, the installation of tin ceilings could be completed in a day, where custom plaster ceilings took months or sometimes years to complete.
Ceiling tiles come in a variety of textures and colors, and will typically be categorized by which room they are recommended for. If you are replacing the ceiling in your bathroom you will want to find a "weather resistant" tile that comes with a protective coat that can handle moist environments and condensation. The same type of tile would be nice for a kitchen, as the steam and heat from cooking may damage certain types of tile. They can be found at most any hardware or home improvement store in your area, and employees at each store are useful in your journey to find the right tile for you. Some stores may also offer their employees to aid you in installing the tiles for a small fee, which may be a wise option for you if you have never installed them before.
