There are many different types of drop ceilings that use lightweight ceiling panels but may not have considered metal ceiling tiles before as they’re not the “norm” for standard issue houses. But, that’s exactly why we love them and think you will too. These drop ceiling tiles coming in a wide range of designs and materials and can be used to create any aesthetic that you please. The end result is an elegant, expensive-looking, and unique interior. Here are just some of the reasons that you should opt for metal and faux metal ceiling tiles to transform your home:

If you’re unhappy with your current ceiling, perhaps its tired, discolored or has unsightly watermarks, or is just plain boring, then mixing it up with metal ceiling tiles is a great way to quickly and cheaply bring your home back to life.

Whatever look and feel you have in mind, metal and fauxmetaldrop ceiling tiles can achieve it. Whether you’re dreaming of a Victorian effect suspended ceiling, prefer an art deco touch, want to get Gothic or have a modern style in mind, then there is a wide range of great options to choose from. If your home changes style in the future, then there’s no need to replace the tiles; they can simply be repainted to suit your new color theme.

Once you’ve installed metal ceiling tiles, the elegant look will instantly make your home more desirable. So, if you ever come to sell up, your home is likely to have gained value.

Standard plaster ceilings are actually quite structurally weak. They can warp, crack, and start to peel over time, which leaves you needing to redecorate and repair and, if the damage is particularly bad, then even reconstruct your ceiling altogether. Luckily, metal ceiling tiles are made of tougher stuff and can put an end to your ceiling woes completely. One of the main advantages of metal ceiling tiles is that they are moisture resistant. Water and condensation are plaster’s worst enemies—but leave metal completely unscathed so damp patches are a thing of the past.

What’s more, both our metal and fauxmetal ceiling tiles are also fire-resistant, which makes your home significantly safer and in the event of a fire and can stop flames spreading from floor to floor as quickly. What’s better than a design feature that looks great and helps you sleep at night?
