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.
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.
Materials used to make ceiling tiles are now certified and safe for your home, which is a common misconception about them. You will not have to worry about any bad chemicals that can potentially make you and your family sick, which gives you piece of mind especially if you have an older home.
