Old-fashioned tin ceilings have been around for over a hundred years, but they have become popular in modern times, as well. They are durable and aesthetically pleasing due to their shine and the variety of designs and patterns that can be stamped into them, and they lend a sense of culture and classicism to any space. The following are a few of the ways that metal ceilings can affect the ambiance of a room:
- Brightens the room. Metal ceiling tiles are reflective and will shine back down into a space. For parties or occasions when the room needs to be kept bright, the metal ceiling will illuminate it from above, especially if it can reflect lamps or other lighting sources below. This is best in large rooms, where light needs to be spread and reflected as efficiently as possible.
- Improves the aesthetics. A tin ceiling with designs and patterns pressed into it will draw the eye and add another dimension of decoration and style to the room. Visitors and occupants will be impressed by the extent to which your room’s style is brought together and will look at your home as being a haven for unique and interesting styles.
- Keeps the home cleaner. Wood, sheetrock, and other typical building materials can be a breeding ground for insects and will trap dust and cobwebs over time, which may cause allergy problems. Metal ceiling tiles are not susceptible to damage or infestation by insects, and dust, dirt, or cobwebs can be easily and quickly swept off if they accumulate. This makes for a healthier home for allergy-prone occupants.
- Keeps the home drier. Traditional ceiling materials trap and hold moisture, which can lead to rot and mold or mildew growth in addition to weakening the infrastructure of the ceiling. Metal ceiling tiles are resistant to moisture and do not collect or absorb it, meaning they will be much less likely to grow mold or mildew and will not trap water to rot the wooden ceiling infrastructure.
