Of course, any time you work with wiring of any type you have to cut the power for safety, so you might think, given that, this is a job you can do on your own. But once the power comes back on, if you haven't installed the ceiling light fitting correctly, you can have a short, a blow-out or worse, a fire. It's not worth the risk to do this job yourself.
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.
If you have a choice, you should not let your ceilings be sealed in with popcorn or other textured treatments. This limits your freedom by making painting and other decorative treatments practically impossible. Instead, choose a nice, flat, standard colored paint treatment for your ceilings, which will allow you to change the style and colors later on. If your ceiling already has a textural treatment that you want to remove, you should consult your local hardware store for the best methods.
