If you’re looking for a home renovation that’s affordable or one that you can do yourself, a great project is to refurbish your ceiling! Even slight changes to the ceiling can add a touch of charisma and grandeur to the room, so an entire ceiling renovation will certainly have a magnificent effect. With so many ceiling options such as Styrofoam, metal, wood, paint, and more available, how do you choose the best option?
Of all the ceiling options available, faux tin ceiling tiles and Styrofoam tiles are among the most popular options. If you’re debating which option is best for you, consider the advantages and disadvantages of working with each.
While faux tin ceiling tiles provide many benefits, Styrofoam ceiling tiles can be more of a headache. Because of their material, Styrofoam tiles are more difficult to maintain. They stain easily and once the material absorbs the stains, they can be difficult or impossible to remove.
Furthermore, Styrofoam tiles are much more fragile as compared to faux tin ceiling tiles, which means that not only are they more difficult to install, but they also need to be replaced and maintained more frequently. Since a special paint is needed to coat Styrofoam, coating options are limited when compared to faux tin ceiling tiles.
Faux tin ceiling tiles provide benefits such as:
Unlike many of the other ceiling covering options that visibly age with time, faux tin ceiling tiles are strong and are basically maintenance free. Unlike Styrofoam, paint, or wood, you don’t have to worry about cracking, fading, or moisture damage with faux tin ceiling tiles. While accumulated moisture in the room can damage the other coverings, you can rest assured that faux tin ceiling tiles will withstand the elements. This saves you money in the long run.

Designed to look just as lavish as their metal ceiling tile counterparts, faux tin ceiling tiles are available in endless designs that add charm and elegance to any room.
