Ceiling tiles come in a variety of textures and colors, and will typically be categorized by which room they are recommended for. If you are replacing the ceiling in your bathroom you will want to find a "weather resistant" tile that comes with a protective coat that can handle moist environments and condensation. The same type of tile would be nice for a kitchen, as the steam and heat from cooking may damage certain types of tile. They can be found at most any hardware or home improvement store in your area, and employees at each store are useful in your journey to find the right tile for you. Some stores may also offer their employees to aid you in installing the tiles for a small fee, which may be a wise option for you if you have never installed them before.
You have the option of going more traditional with a smooth texture, semi- smooth, or a popcorn style ceiling. Plain ceilings can be enhanced without paint if you wish, but before launching into those aspects let's look a bit more at paint. The paint you choose should match the rest of the room's decor and the walls. It doesn't have to be the same color, but something that will meld well. Murals are still a possibility if you have a painter or you have the talent to create an image you will want to live with. A common option is Trompe l'oeil painting as it adds a bit of gusto to the ceiling.
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.
