Decorative Ceiling Tiles >> An Overview

Metal ceiling tiles are a decorative element popularized in the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as an alternative to the expensive and ornate European ceiling plasterwork.  Tin became a uniquely American alternative — decoratively exquisite yet affordable. Today,  in addition to tin, solid copper, and aluminum decorative ceiling tiles are also available in  faux tin (feather weight PVC plastic), and ultra thin and light foam ceiling tiles (styrofoam / polystyrene) options.  Once you choose which product suits your project and budget, you can then shop for a style and finish that fits the look you want to achieve.

So what exactly are the differences between the various decorative ceiling tiles?

In addition to individual ceiling tiles, many installations also include filler and molded fillers or cornices.  Most often fillers are used as a border around the room much like a framing mat is used when framing a picture however fillers can also be used as an integral part of the design element. Using a filler can cut down the project costs by allowing you to buy fewer expensive tiles yet still achieve the wow factor.  Add molded fillers to your design for extra elegance and to frame your space.

How and Why to Use Decorative Ceiling Tiles

Decorative ceiling tiles can be glued or nailed to just about any ceiling surface, assuming the ceiling is in structurally sound condition. Most styles also work great on drop ceilings and can cover popcorn ceilings without the mess and headache of popcorn ceiling removal. Plus, these stunning decorative squares can now be enjoyed without looking up. Use ceiling tiles on your walls, as a kitchen or bathroom  backsplash, as photography backdrops, as a headboard for your bed, and even on your tables as you entertain friends and family. Most tiles are available for quick delivery and installation wherever you live including the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, the UK, Ireland, and Australia.

    i have recently purchased a flat that requires ceiling covering, i have all ready removed old polystryrene ceiling tiles throughout, Are the stilofome tiles shown fire proof and do they come up to the latest building regs for rentable properties.
    many thanks awaiting your reply.

    • Good Morning!

      Thank you for your comment on First, congratulations on the purchase of your new flat and for getting right to work on making the improvements.

      I checked with Milan, my “go to” guy at Decorative Ceiling Tiles and he said that there is no fire rating on Styrofoam / polystyrene ceiling tiles but that the PVC (sometimes known as faux tin) and metal ceiling tiles do have “class A” fire ratings which should satisfy the latest building regulations for rentable properties. Having said that, before you install any product, I would definitely check and double check your local codes to confirm that a “Class A” fire rating conforms to your specific regulations — maybe even call over to the office charged with building code compliance to triple verify.

      I hope that helps and if you have any other questions please feel free to contact me!

      Make it a beautiful day!
