For many people renovating their homes, deciding to use metal tiles for their ceilings becomes an appealing option. The tiles add class and impressive design while adding their own benefits to the home. However, since tin ceilings can be a potentially costly renovation, it’s important to know when to renovate you ceiling with metal tiles. There are three main reasons why it might be time to upgrade or renovate with tin tiles:
- Update looks. Perhaps you’ve lived in your home for 15 years and it’s just time for an update. You’re sick of the ceiling or you want a room to have a different feel. This is a legitimate reason for getting ceiling tiles and keeping this goal in mind will help you determine what tiles to get. Are you looking for lighter tiles that will help brighten up the room? Do you want fancy elegance? Or simple patterns to give a more relaxed atmosphere? Know what you want and then go for it!
- Your ceiling is damaged. As long as your ceiling maintains a strong structure and is only damaged aesthetically through smoking stains and other eye sores, metal tiles are a great option. Not only do they cover up existing discoloration, but they are non-porous so they typically don’t stain and are resistant to the wear and tear of normal ceilings.
- You’re thinking of moving. If you’re preparing to move and sell your home, you’ll want to renovate it in ways that can strategically add worth and value to the home’s market value. A simple metal tile ceiling renovation can be the difference between thousands of dollars for a home with a stylish, new ceiling versus one with plain old plaster. Since you’re selling the home, it would be best to pick neutral colors for the ceiling tiles so that you create an environment most appealing to a range of potential buyers.
If you face one of these three situations, it might be time for you to seriously consider renovating your home with metal ceiling tins. Also, knowing which of these three reasons has spurred your decision to renovate will help you determine your budget as well as the selection of tins that you can look at. For instance, if you’re just wanting to update your looks, then you can select any ceiling metal tile you want, versus selecting more muted tiles for a home renovation for a house that you want to sell.
