At Decorative Ceiling Tiles, we not only offer the world’s largest online selection of high-quality 2x4 ceiling tiles, but we also help you through the process of making your walls and ceilings beautiful. With different colors, styles, and designs, there are plenty of options to choose from. Here is a closer look at our decorative 2x4 tiles for walls and ceilings.
How to Choose the Right Ceiling/Wall Tile Type
Our 2x4 tiles are available in three different installation types: drop-in, glue-up, and nail-up. People mostly choose the type based on their installation surface. In commercial applications and basements, a common choice is our drop-in type, which allows easy access to pipes and electrical work. Glue-up, on the other hand, is convenient for solid surfaces such as drywall, stucco, limestone, plywood, or concrete. Nail-up is only available in our real metal selection; the substrate needs to be either wood, plywood, or furring strips, but installation is still simple.
Benefits of Decorative 2x4 Drop-in Ceiling Tiles
Our drop-in 2x4 ceiling tiles are the most popular type of decorative 2x4 tiles, as the size is used by standard-size grid systems. Even though the size is already set, you will still get to choose a color and design. Installers love them, as their size makes them easy to work with and easier and faster to install.
- Access to home plumbing pipes and electrical
- Large size allows for faster install
Our drop-in 2x4 tiles are exceptionally popular in hotels and restaurants, where a perfect calm and warm ambiance is required. They are also perfect for basements, offices, churches, and stores as well, bringing more life into your space.
Benefits of 2x4 Decorative Glue-up Tiles
As the name suggests, glue-up decorative tiles are glued to walls and ceilings. Our glue-up tiles are popular, as they offer a clean finish, easy installation, and significantly large design variety. If you are looking for quick-installing ceiling tiles, 2x4 glue-up tiles are a great option.
- Easy installation
- Seamless look
Moreover, our 2x4 ceiling tiles are simple to cut, allowing you to fit them perfectly onto any ceiling or wall. This ensures durability and proper sealing. However, they can be tricky to remove.
Nail-up tiles are popular mostly because steel, aluminum, and copper should be nailed to a wooden substrate to ensure secure installation. The lightest of them all, aluminum, can be easily adhered as well. When you are looking for durable ceiling tiles, 2x4 nail-up tiles are a good option.
Think Color and Material
At Decorative Ceiling Tiles, we not only offer the world’s largest selection of high-quality 2x4 ceiling and wall tiles but more than 100 colors to choose from. Not all colors can be applied to all of the 2x4 ceiling panels. Here is a quick overview of what colors can you expect on which material for your home or commercial project.
- Copper (solid copper or solid aged)
- Tin-plated steel (unfinished, white, or lacquered)
- Aluminum (75 colors)
- Faux tin (12 colors)
