When it comes to achieving a vintage look that stands out, mixing and matching metal ceiling tile is a unique approach. When you match metal ceiling tile, you’re given the opportunity to show your creativity in interior design in a new way.
Not everyone is a designer, and this might make mixing and matching metal ceiling tile seem more daunting than it actually is. However, if you’re going for vintage patchwork, you can opt for 2 or 3 metal ceiling tile designs that complement one another and choose your coordinating colors to go along with them.
Work With Colors
A good way to mix and match metal ceiling tiles is to choose a color for each design you choose. For instance, if you want 3 different metal ceiling tile designs, you should assign a color to each of them. This will make your patchwork design cohesive, and it will ensure that everything works well together when placed on your ceiling.
When you’re selecting colors, you’ll want to choose those that complement each other. If you’re going for metallics, all the tiles should be metallic, and if you’re going for satin or colored finishes, stick with that. This will bring all of the ceiling tiles together despite having different colors and designs. Three colors that would work particularly well in each category would be Argento, Bronze Burst, and Candy Haze Black for dark metallics and Classical Gold, Cloud Color, and Copteal for colored finishes.
Keep The Overall Design Balanced
As you choose your designs, mix and match the details that they have. Picking 3 intricate designs might cause you to lose that balanced patchwork look of your ceiling, and the result may be too busy or overwhelming. Try to choose one simple design, one intricate design, and one design that rests comfortably right in the middle.
For example, a nice selection using 3 mix and match metal ceiling tile designs would be the #115 Framed Gallery, the #114 Mediterranean Pebble, and the #129 Artisan Medallion. The #115 is simple, the #114 is slightly more intricate, and the #129 is highly detailed, and they all use a similar square-framed motif.
