If it is time for your next home renovation or home project to help transform or upgrade your space, then you should definitely consider the benefits that can be derived from using unfinished tin ceiling tiles.
Tin ceiling tiles became popular back in the 1800s to early 1900s and are experiencing a rise in popularity today due to its aesthetic appeal, limitless design potential, and affordable installation. When you use finished ceiling tiles, you are getting tiles that are already glazed and mixed with pigment, metal, and polyester resin. Since they are already finished, you don’t have room for any further customization options.
However, with unfinished metal tiles, you will have tiles that are able to retain their beauty, but also offer you wiggle room when it comes to choosing personalization options.
Benefits of Unfinished Tiles
One of the benefits of unfinished tiles is the price you pay for each. Finished tiles will cost a bit more because they are finished and ready to go. Unfinished tiles, on the other hand, do not have a finish which means you are not only saving money but opening up more options when it comes to finishing them yourself.
Even if you just finish the tiles with a clear coat, you will be left with a beautiful accent for any room that shines and reflects the light. Or, you can opt to paint the tiles which means your color options are practically endless.
Painting Ceiling Tiles
When painting your unfinished tin panels, you will want to avoid using any darker shades. Instead, you should opt for lighter colors, and you should be applying two to three shades after a primer has been used.
You can also choose to distress the tiles by using two different paint colors. One color is for weathering and the second color is what you will see peeking out from underneath.
As you can see, when you choose the unfinished option you are saving money and have much more in the way of design options to choose from to personalize your space.
