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.
First, let us begin with a little background about tin ceiling tiles. Pressed or embossed tin ceilings were very popular during the Victorian Era as an affordable substitute for the plaster-designed ceilings found in wealthy European homes. Thin metal sheets of tin, copper or stainless steel were stamped with intricate patterns and often painted white to resemble the more expensively-produced, hand-carved or molded plaster ceilings. Companies in Ohio, New York and Pennsylvania mass produced thin metal plate during the late 1800s and created numerous patterns from which buyers could choose.
Another way to make the ceiling seem higher or lower is with molding. You can paint molding the same color as the ceiling to make the room smaller, and paint it the same color as the walls, to make the room seem larger, and the ceiling further away. Ceilings are a large and important feature in a space, and should not be ignored just because they are remote, and difficult to reach. By using contrast, unity, and color, it is possible to use the ceiling to add a whole new level to your decorative designs.
