You can install a tongue-and-groove ceiling to hide a nasty ceiling in your room. Installing a tongue-and-groove ceiling is a somewhat slow process, but it is possible for a single person to do the job without help. This style is also one of our favorite patio ceiling ideas.
Surface-mount ceiling tiles are easy to install. The grid for this system is much easier that the drop-ceiling grid, and the tiles attach directly to the grid. This is another project that can be done by one person, and in most cases, the tiles that go into place can be easily cut to size using scissors.
Installing styrofoam ceiling tiles is one of the easiest ways to change an ugly ceiling into a beautiful one. The ceiling tiles attach directly to the existing ceiling using an adhesive. The beauty is that there are a number of different patterns available and they are not expensive.
Installing PVC ceiling tiles follows the same process as installing a conventional drop ceiling. PVC plastic tiles come in 24 inch x 24 inch sections and unlike regular drop-ceiling panels, the PVC panels are waterproof.
Beadboard panels are an efficient, economical way to get that popular tongue-and-groove, porchy look to cover up an unattractive ceiling. Compare wood and vinyl options and choose the one that best suits your budget and DIY aspirations. One of our favorite ideas for this material is covering popcorn ceiling with beadboard.
Here at Ceilume, we've got ceiling panels on the brain. We can't go into a building of any kind without saying \"Hello\" (we're nothing if not polite) and then looking up. The things we see are amazing - both good and... well... beyond bad!
Throughout history, the ceiling has been everything from an inspiring design element to an afterthought. It has been home to some of the world's greatest works of art and architecture, but, more frequently, to plain sheetrock and clusters of cobwebs. Have you looked uplately If so, you are much more likely to encounter the latter than the former, and you don't need a ladder to see either (sorry, I couldn't resist!).
The late 1800's and early 1900's saw widespread use of decorative stamped metal ceiling tiles - a great alternative to the fancy plasterwork of the day (which was expensive and tended to fall on people). As a result, ceilings for the common folk came into their own, and theywere really something to see. Many such ornate metal ceilings still exist in buildings of a certain age, so be sure to keep an eye out for them. A slight rabbit trail: the town of Silverton, Colorado is absolutely full of historic metal ceiling tiles. Taking the narrow gaugerailroad there and back from Durango is also a blast, and highly recommended.
Unfortunately, for the second half of the last century, designers and builders mostly turned their attention away from ceilings, and a long \"blah\" period ensued. The ceiling had become a mere footnote to the design process; a place to hang lighting and collect dust.
Beginning in the 1950's, there was a significant rise in the use of suspended ceiling panels, both in commercial spaces and homes (see \"blah\" period, above), and it was actually this long dearth of design that precipitated today's ceiling renaissance. As new people occupiedthese spaces, they were greeted with old, stained and broken tiles that need replacing, or with plain lay-in ceilings that were just plain ugly. With the dawn of the new century came a new awareness of that previously overlooked space overhead, and a renewed appreciation forthe possibilities to be explored there.
No longer content with plain mineral fiber ceiling panels or flat drywall, designers, architects, businesses, and homeowners demanded something more and those of us in the ceiling industry responded. An extraordinary number of ceiling choices are now available: stamped metaltiles (commonly called \"tin\", though they were never actually made of tin), glue up plastic tiles, and vinyl drop ceiling panels in beautiful finishes and colors. There truly is a ceiling treatment to fit every taste, every space, and every budget, and that's a good thing.
Alternatively, upload an image of your suspended ceiling panels to our Photo Upload ID Tool. Our team of experts can then readily identify your system and provide direct replacement ceiling tiles or a suitable alternative depending on your requirements.

Things to Consider:If installing in a ceiling grid, make your grid look as elegant as your tiles by painting your grid or using Our Designer Collection Grid Strips. If you are planning to direct mount these to your ceiling, you will love the way that they overlap. No seams to conceal, so there is no need to buy grid strips.
Since your ceiling will more than likely have partial tiles at the perimeter, you will have to cut your tiles to size for those areas. This can create a gap running into the wall with some styles. Since the Cathedral style has a very minimal projection, many of our customers do not find the need for a border tile. Should you decide you would prefer one, our Designer Border Tile are the perfect remedy.
