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.
Remodeling your home is a tough task but is worth the time and money put into the project once you see your home's new found beauty. If you are looking for a quick make over in one room, you may want to consider just adding a coat of paint and some new ceiling tiles. This can prove to be an inexpensive way to change the feel of a room without putting more than a day's time worth of work into the project, and will save you a pretty penny. If the room you are considering upgrading seems a bit dark for you, try switching the colors to a lighter, brighter and more radiant shade. This will not only cheer up the feel of the space, but also enlarge the appearance of the room.
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.
