It’s time for that ugly popcorn ceiling to go, and you may be looking for solutions that won’t involve messy scraping. Instead of scraping, consider other alternatives for covering a popcorn ceiling. An easy, affordable, and fast option to cover a popcorn ceiling involves decorative Styrofoam ceiling tiles. This installation process is not complicated, but learning how to cover popcorn ceiling textures can help you avoid frustrating mistakes.
Is this the ceiling you want? Here are the tiles.
Before you shop online for ceiling tiles, calculate the number of tiles you will need to buy for your home. The calculation involves figuring the area of the room by multiplying the length by the width. For example, if your room is 12 feet by 14 feet, the square footage would be 168.
Enter the square footage into this project calculator and press “calculate.”

In this example, we are calculating tiles for a 12-x-14-foot room. We have entered 168 into the calculator tool. The tool calculates that we would need 72 tiles for the project with an extra 15 percent built into the number as overage in case of error.
