If you have a room that could benefit from a ceiling light but there's no existing fixture, you shouldn't let that discourage you. Have a professional contractor or electrician come in and give you an estimate of the time and cost involved. You won't want to do this type of job yourself. Not only is working with high-voltage wiring dangerous, it's often prohibited in some areas. You'll have to check with your local building authorities about any code requirements before you begin.
When you begin the search, you will find different types of tiles to decorate the ceiling of your home. However, do not act on impulse and buy whatever has caught your fancy. Try to gather some information about the tiles before making any decision. If you are searching for some unique quality you can opt for Acoustical tiles. This tile reduces the noise. This type of tile is famous for the ability to soak sound. It is said that this tile is made from glass and starch. White is the usual color of the tile. However, you will find this type of tile in some other colors also.
Unlike older tiles which rust, newer tiles are often made with a special powder finish which is rust-proof, allowing for indoor and outdoor use. But even "cleaned up" older tiles look and feel differently than new ones. Collectors who handle lots of these detailed works of art learn to distinguish the differences. While true collectors mix and match their collections with different examples of tiles, homeowners who may want to remodel a kitchen ceiling or frame a fireplace need to find multiple tiles. They generally look toward new versions of these handsome decorative items.
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.
Don't forget to consider the type of light you might want to put there. Some specialty lights might require certain types of fittings, and you wouldn't want the extra expense of having a new fitting installed. If the light will be controlled by a wall-switch, that requires a little extra installation, so it's a good idea to consider the type of light and whether something with a pull-chain will be your choice, which will also simplify installation.
