Pressed tin ceilings

While pressed ceilings might not be making a dramatic comeback, some homes look gorgeous with pressed ceilings.


Popular during the late 19th and early 20th century as an affordable alternative to expensive plaster ceilings, tin-plated steel was pressed with embossed designs similar to the costly sculptured plaster, yet tin ceiling panels could be massed produced at a fraction of the cost.

If you can dream it the sky truly is the limit when it comes to decorative touches on your ceiling. The traditional look of pressed ceilings and tin ceiling tiles adds personality to the ceiling of any kitchen or bathroom.

Tin ceiling tiles, whether plain or painted, transform boring ceilings into something to talk about and show that looking up can be quite remarkable. And while not everyone can afford to install a pressed tin ceiling, there's always polystyrene tiles, which offer a very affordable alternative and an easy way to give your ceilings a dramatic makeover.
