Pressed tin tiles can be used in any room of your home. Much the same way people use vinyl floor tiles all over the place. They even make tin bathroom tiles. These tiles would look especially good in the kitchen though, and you can get matching back splashes from many companies so you can have an integrated look. You can get these tiles from a number of different companies, including Armstrong. They usually come as two foot by two foot tiles, or two foot by four foot tiles, although some places do sell one foot by one foot tiles as well. It is a good idea to get a good quality tile that will look great and last a long time.
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.
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.
