From acoustic to tin, glued-up or suspended, there’s a ceiling tile to suit any room or need. Need soundproofing that looks good too? Look no further than acoustic ceiling panels.
Ceiling panels with sound-dampening properties are used to keep unwanted sound from getting into or out of a room. Home movie theaters are an ideal residential application of acoustic tiles. Sound reduction is only one of the purposes of ceiling tiles. Another is decoration, which is where tin ceilings excel.
Tin Ceiling Panels
Tin ceiling tiles have ornate, embossed patterns on them that evoke the Victorian era. These tiles’ uses aren’t limited to the ceiling either: they can adorn walls or backsplashes. If the cost of real tin tiles is too great for you, don’t worry; there are plenty of faux-tin alternatives that cost less.
Suspended Ceiling Panels
Suspended ceilings were traditionally confined to an office setting where they simultaneously conceal and grant easy access to wiring and ductwork. Now, they are gaining traction in the consumer sector thanks to the ever-increasing variety of materials from which they're made and the many decorative options they present. In the home, they’re often installed to hide a damaged or otherwise-unattractive ceiling. They rest inside of a metal grid.
Glued-Up Ceiling Panels
As the name suggests, these panels are attached directly to the ceiling with glue. They are mainly decorative, acting almost as wallpaper for the ceiling. Speaking of wallpaper, some of it is designed to replicate the look of tin ceiling tiles, but that’s a whole other article. . . .
