Metal ceiling tiles are a very versatile option and can be used nearly anywhere in your home. They are a pretty unusual option when homeowners choose to use them on furniture. Here is a quick look at how to attach metal ceiling tiles to furniture.
Tin ceiling tiles are a great way to extend the lifespan of an old piece of furniture, giving it a refreshing new look.
Fortunately, the process of attaching metal ceiling tiles to furniture is easy enough to complete in a few short hours.
Why Metal Tiles Are Great For Furniture
Instead of re-staining or repainting furniture, you should consider attaching tin tiles instead. Tin tiles are an ideal option because of their durability. When cared for properly, tin ceiling tiles can last for years.
Whereas you would need to re-stain or repaint furniture every few years to keep it fresh, metal ceiling tiles merely need to be installed once. All you need to do to care for them is wipe them down with a damp rag every so often to remove any dust.
Additionally, metal ceiling tiles are much more susceptible to the elements than wooden furniture. If your furniture is outdoors or in the sun, it can fade quickly. It can also be vulnerable to moisture damage, which could ruin the furniture. Metal ceiling tiles, on the other hand, are resistant to both sun and moisture, dramatically increasing the lifespan of your furniture.
How To Install Metal Ceiling Tiles
To install metal ceiling tiles on your furniture, you’ll first need to measure the areas where you will be installing the tiles. Knowing the size of your tile beforehand could help you narrow down your options when choosing a color and pattern, which you can do so from our online store. There are hundreds of options available. If you cannot select one while looking online, order a few samples to see which ones will work best.
After you have selected and ordered your tiles, you will need to cut them to size using tin snips. If you are not comfortable doing this, you could take them to your local metal shop. After they are correctly sized, use a nail gun or glue to install them to the furniture’s base.
