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.
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.
One way to add interest to a white ceiling is to create geometric focal points of color, over various spots in the home. This can include painting an oval over the dining area or a contrasting square over a seating area in a living room. This figure will most often be painted in the same colors as the walls or flooring, to tie the entire space together. This idea of unity can be carried even further by painting the walls and the ceiling different shades of the same color. If the ceiling is painted a slightly lighter shade, it will make the features fall away from the room, giving a low ceiling the illusion of being much higher up. The reverse is also true where a towering ceiling painted in a darker tone will seem to fall in on the room, making even overwhelmingly large spaces seem cozy.
