Tin ceilings are an absolutely addition to any home.They are without a doubt the one extra expense I would Anne up for. This type ceilings really ads depth to a trey ceiling. They come in all kinds of custom colors and you can get them painted to match any room in your home. If you like the look of doing the whole ceiling this is OK or you can just do part of the ceiling and trim it out. I especially like this because this makes them so versatile to use. Their are companies that will custom paint your tin panels and custom paint your tin crown molding to match. Tin panels can also be used for the back splash in your kitchen. The uses for them are limited only by your imagination. These ceiling were used a lot in the 19Th century era. Consider working them into your interior design. Start by looking at pictures of tin ceiling and you will see what the big deal is for using them to ad beauty to your home. Below I have listed 3 reasons to consider tin ceiling are your unique ceiling designs of choice.
Well we are going to FRAME our way right around all of it, and it's really very simple to do! Looking at it now it might seem a little overwhelming, but what we will do is break the ceiling framing down into a few stages, starting with the framing of the duct-work 1st!
Remember to tie a piece of caution tape on any water shutoffs, gas shutoffs, outside faucet shut offs, or anything else that you will want to access later after the drywall is permanently hung! Otherwise you will never be able to access these important items at a later date. Just tie caution tape right on the handles or the center of all of the items you will need to access later, then when the drywall ceiling is being hung, just cut a 2\" hole out of the drywall so that the caution tape can be pulled through that hole. After the drywall is finished and paint-ready we will be installing finished plastic access panels at each of these locations so we can easily access all of our mechanical items forever!
3. Efficiency Value of Tin Ceilings Besides the ornamental beauty of the tin ceilings they also ad efficiency to your heating system. Even after your heating unit kicks off the tin ceiling will help hold the heat longer. Tin tiles beside and above your fireplace can catch and reflect heat. They are also valuable for their flame resistance.
A dropped or suspended ceiling is another option for your basement. These ceilings have a grid work of metal bars in the shape of an upside-down T, these are suspended on wires from the overhead joists. A dropped ceiling is great because there is no need for you to move wires, pipes or ducts and the joists don't have to be straight for the finished ceiling to look flat. This type of basement ceiling finishing will give you easy access to heating, cooling and electrical systems. Adding some lighting fixtures can be done with ease as well. In addition to that, a dropped ceiling shields unwanted noise from above. However, one of the biggest disadvantages of a dropped or suspended ceiling is that it eats up too much head space so if you already have a very low basement ceiling then you might want to look into this first.
