When you start looking for decorative ceiling tiles, many people find tin ceilings to be their favorites. These were originally made popular in the 1880s because they were cheap and offered some fire protection, which was a significant factor back then. Though the tiles are not as popular today, they are making a comeback. You can put them into almost any room and completely change the way the room looks and feels.
If you’re interested in installing some decorative ceiling tiles, start by finding tile patterns that you like. Amazingly enough, some of the original patterns might still be available. You can usually find these by looking at photos online. If you find an old pattern that you like you can often search for it by name or ask your installer if they still make it. Even if they don’t make that exact pattern today, you should be able to find one that is very similar.
You should also make sure that decorative ceiling tiles fit into your budget. They can range drastically in price, from about $2 per square foot for plain metal to up to $17 per square foot for ones that are painted or made of copper. Most of them are somewhere in between.
You’ll also want to measure your ceiling to see just how much space you need to cover with tin. This will help you determine how much you’ll spend, too, because you’ll pay by the square foot. Once you know how big your room is, you can multiply that by the cost of each tile to figure out whether you can afford to install decorative ceiling tiles.
You might also want to consider the current look and feel of your room before you choose decorative ceiling tiles. If your room feels modern, make sure your ceiling tiles enhance that feel. If it looks older, you can also find tiles to add to that. Just make sure your tiles don’t clash with what you’re going for in the rest of the room.
Copper ceiling tiles are fun, but they will cost you more. If you really want that color and can afford it, go for it. Otherwise, see what colors of tin ceiling tiles you can get. You may be surprised that you can go lighter, darker, or even find more nuanced colors. You should be able to find one that’s perfect for your room.
