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 artist I am familiar with, looks for tins that are more than 100 years old, in good shape and require minimal prep work. The artist I am referring to generally passes up tiles that have holes or dents, preferring instead pieces with unusual designs or shapes which inspire her to use the background as part of her subject matter and design work.

Of course, any time you work with wiring of any type you have to cut the power for safety, so you might think, given that, this is a job you can do on your own. But once the power comes back on, if you haven't installed the ceiling light fitting correctly, you can have a short, a blow-out or worse, a fire. It's not worth the risk to do this job yourself.

This can be a little boring, even when the ceiling has some texture to it. Some people do something a little different and paint their ceiling a different color, but this isn't all that common. Another option that can really make a ceiling stand out is the use of tin or faux tin tiles.

The industrialization of manufacturing allowed intricate plastering and ornamental stucco decoration to be accurately replicated in tin plated steel. Tin-plated steel could be pressed with embossed designs identical to the beauty of sculptured plaster, yet tin ceiling panels could be massed produced at a fraction of the cost of custom plastered ceilings. Also, the installation of tin ceilings could be completed in a day, where custom plaster ceilings took months or sometimes years to complete.

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.

This limits your freedom by making painting and other decorative treatments practically impossible. Instead, choose a nice, flat, standard colored paint treatment for your ceilings, which will allow you to change the style and colors later on. If your ceiling already has a textural treatment that you want to remove, you should consult your local hardware store for the best methods.

For example, you get artificial ceilings that add to the look and feel of the house, like shining stars and even the moon. These are a very good way to decorate the ceilings of the children's room. In some cases, you can add some romantic facades to the bedroom, etc. artificial ceilings were the talk of the town a few years ago, and some of them even come with atmosphere control, which means that they are bright and sunny during the day, and cool and calm during the night.

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.

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.

They have an hour burn rating at 1300 degrees, which provided an effective fire retardent. In the early 20th century, many first floor stores and shops had apartments homes on the second floor. Tin ceilings installed on the first floor gave the second floor residents adequate time to escape a deadly fire.

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.
