Tin ceilings add a touch of sophistication to any space. Fortunately, for those who like the idea of making alterations, they don’t have to be permanent. The convenient snap grid metal ceiling system is ideal for making future upgrades because the system is so flexible. Design changes are fairly easy to do and cost efficient.
Consider these ways to securely, easily, and safely re-imagine your metal tile ceiling.
- Change the Pattern. Because the installation of the snap-grid is so accessible, changing the pattern or arrangement of the tiles is also very convenient. When it’s time for an upgraded look, simply swap out some tiles and add new ones.
Tin ceilings often convey an elegant, ancient architectural style, but there are several tile options with a more modern look. If you want to take your space from old world to contemporary, it can be as easy as changing out a few tiles.
- Paint the Tiles. Because removing snap-grid tin tiles is an easy process, consider taking them down to slap on a coat of paint for a new look. Often when people are ready for a new look, an upgrade to the finish is all that is needed. A single coat of paint can enhance the entire look of a space.
Tin ceiling tiles do exceptionally well with spray paint. Spray with one coat of metal primer then spray with whatever color you choose. Another technique is to paint the tiles and then add a distressed finish for a classic look.
- Lighting. Enhancing the lighting in a room is always a good design option. This is especially true when the room has a metal ceiling. The way light bounces off tin metal tiles produces a stunning effect.
It’s important to consider different techniques to get the best results. Most metal ceilings will not allow for lighting fixtures. For those that do, chandeliers are a good dramatic choice. For the majority that do not, consider other lighting options, such as floor lamps, natural light, and table lamps.
Also consider the color of the light. Warm oranges and reds will have one effect while cool blues and whites will have another. Get creative and mix and match the tones.
