During the WW II Era, tin ceiling tiles went out of favor as metals were conserved for the war effort, and other types of ceilings were promoted. By the 1950s and 1960s, acoustic drop ceiling tiles and dry wall dominated the marketplace and could be found in homes, hotels and buildings. Because original tin ceiling tiles have such pretty designs and craftsmanship, many people like to collect these lovely antique pieces. Collectors enjoy finding tiles of different sizes, as well as seeking out tiles with unique patterns, shapes, colors and symbols.
Once you choose your ceiling tiles, you will need to get them installed. You can get this professionally done, or you can do it yourself. Just make sure that if you are going to do this you purchase an extra ten percent or so of tile to use for the edges where you can't use a full tile. You can look on the internet for instructions on how to install tine ceiling tiles, and then you will get a better idea of just what is involved. You can also find information on smooth-on and tin ceiling tiles in this manner.
Don't forget to consider the type of light you might want to put there. Some specialty lights might require certain types of fittings, and you wouldn't want the extra expense of having a new fitting installed. If the light will be controlled by a wall-switch, that requires a little extra installation, so it's a good idea to consider the type of light and whether something with a pull-chain will be your choice, which will also simplify installation.
