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.
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.
Suspended ceiling started being made to help with sound levels in rooms and offers sound absorption. This is made by adding insulation above the tiles, this helps to absorb the sound in the room.
In most homes people have white ceilings, either sprayed on or in the form of white ceiling tiles. This can be a little boring, even when the ceiling has some texture to it. Some people do something a little different and paint their ceiling a different color, but this isn't all that common. Another option that can really make a ceiling stand out is the use of tin or faux tin tiles.
Reproduced tiles are made from a variety of materials such as tin, vinyl, wood and plastics, and they come in numerous colors and finishes. Popular colors for store-bought tin tiles are copper, bronze, gold, black, silver, rust, burgundy, mocha and whites or unpainted for custom colors. There are many companies that carry a variet of colors and styles. A newer tile snaps locks. These tiles can be screwed into any ceiling (drop, popcorn, etc.). You can order sample tiles to evaluate before you begin a project.
