Armstrong Offers a Cure for the Common Ceiling with Budget-Conscious Paintable Tin Look Ceilings

Inspiration starts at the top. A great ceiling design, whether in the kitchen, bedroom or any room in the home, gives a room that special, individual quality – and makes a lasting impression.

Online PR News – 12-September-2013 – Lancaster, Pa. – Love the look of vintage tin ceilings but not the modern-day price tag? Tin Look™ Ceiling Panels, a faux tin ceiling from Armstrong Residential Ceilings, provides the look of metal without the expense. Cover drywall, plaster or popcorn ceilings with a classic look that will completely transform a commonplace ceiling from flat to fabulous.

“It’s an elegant, simple remodel at a price people can afford,” emphasizes Marketing Manager Lori Rowley. “Our Tin Look tile not only allows you to re-imagine your home while staying on a budget, but also lets you totally change up the look of your room just by painting the ceiling tiles.”

Our Tin Look tile not only allows you to re-imagine your home while staying on a budget but also lets you totally change up the look of your room just by painting the ceiling tiles.

Easy enough for a do-it-yourself weekend project thanks to the tongue and groove ceiling installation system, Tin Look ceiling tiles come in several ornamental styles that can be left unfinished or painted to change a room’s look or match the style of any home. Tin Look tile is painted white during the manufacturing process and can be custom painted before installation.

Style a ceiling using decorative painting techniques, a simple project that any DIYer can do. Paint tiles in a flat, latex neutral shade like champagne then dry-brush a neutral iridescent paint to add dimension. Create the dramatic look of a true tin ceiling by using shimmering metallic paints in copper, pewter, bronze or silver. For a more contemporary look, paint ceiling tiles in a dark, dramatic shade. The ceiling instantly will become the room’s visual centerpiece.

While the tiles have the appearance of real tin, they actually are made of a durable mineral fiber with 40 percent recycled content. Mineral fiber is made up of recycled fibers, perlite, natural starch, recycled paper and recycled ceilings.

The ceiling tiles are equipped with a vinyl-coated surface for durability and can be installed directly over any existing ceiling using Armstrong’s Easy Up® guaranteed installation system. These easy-to-install products come in 12”x 12” tiles in a variety of decorative styles, both traditional and on-trend. Tin Look has a 10 year limited manufacturer warranty; however, when installed with Easy Up, the warranty extends to a 30 year system warranty.

Retailing for approximately $2.00 per square foot, Tin Look tiles lets anyone achieve a sophisticated, low maintenance look at a price that’s up to 50 percent less than the cost of a real metal ceiling.

Armstrong ceilings are available at home improvement retailers nationwide in the United States and Canada. For more information, call 1-800-233-3823 or visit Armstrong Residential Ceilings.
