Faux Tin Ceiling Tiles

You can install faux tin ceiling tiles over your existing ceiling with ease. These tiles are available in numerous designs, textures and finishes. Some of these tiles are available painted while others will need to be painted either before or after installation. You can either staple or glue the faux tin ceiling tiles on to the existing ceiling. Some tiles also have a tongue and groove technique that is very convenient. Faux tin ceiling tiles are quite durable and hardy. As such, they may last longer than the wallpaper.

Faux Tin Ceiling Wallpaper

Wallpaper tiles are also very easy to install; however, it is much more important that the surface being covered is flat when you are using wallpaper. You also have to cut the wallpaper in the required dimensions, whereas with the tiles you can just purchase the required number. Once the wallpaper is glued on to the ceiling and has cured properly, it must be painted to achieve the desired look.
