Faux Tin Ceilings using Armstrong Ceiling Tiles
Approaching the Grandeur of Real Metal. Faux tin tiles are the perfect complement to even the busiest foyer. Because these versatile tiles can be painted to mimic virtually any metal, they bring a bit of sparkle and into the room, drawing the eye upward. They can also be painted in solid colors, antiqued, and pearled finishes. We use Armstrong ceiling tiles, but any polystyrene, fiberboard, resin, or plastic-based tile can be used.
Our ceiling tiles come in bright and antiqued finishes, and in nearly any metallic hue you could desire. We also create painted and fantasy finishes.

Our gilded tiles appear as if transported from the Medieval era. We go to some lengths to create a base (typically red, charcoal, or green) covered with a gilded finish with wear patterns, for the look of ancient royalty.
