Antique Ceiling Tins

Designed for metal roofs, ceiling tins were tin-plated steel plates. These tins were used in Victorian-style buildings built in the 19th and 20th century in North America. While new ceiling tins are always being manufactured, antique ceiling tin tiles can be used to add a sense of age and history to a home, especially if you are refurbishing an older or historic home.

What is a tin ceiling?

As early as the 1880s, tin was used as a way of adding some style to the ceiling due to its ability to emulate decorative plaster. It was commonly used in the kitchen as it added a layer of protection against fire. The tiles used for tin ceilings come in 2-by-2-foot squares or 2-by-4-foot rectangles, although they can be cut to fit your unique ceiling. Antique metal tiles were stamped with a variety of designs to add a luxurious feeling to homes.

What can tin ceiling tiles be used for?

Like all tiles used in the home, metal tiles can have several uses:

  • Ceiling: Tin ceiling tiles are most commonly used for their intended purpose, which is on the ceiling.
  • Backsplash: Although metal ceiling tiles are designed to be installed on the ceiling, they can also be used as a backsplash in the kitchen or bathroom.
  • Cornice: Metal tiles can be used to add decoration to the walls in many rooms from kitchens and living rooms to home offices.
  • Medallion: If you do not want to add a full metal ceiling, a single panel can be used to create a focal point for a light fixture.
How do you maintain tin ceiling tiles?

Most tin ceilings have a paint or polyurethane finish to prevent it from rusting. To maintain the panels, they should first be wiped down with a damp cloth to remove any dust. The metal panels should then be washed with a mixture of warm water and dish soap.

What should be considered when looking for tin ceiling tiles?

There are several considerations you should make if you are thinking about installing a backsplash or tin ceiling:

  • Design: Metal panels that have been stamped with a pattern can add a unique look to your home. There are many different patterns to choose from. Some designs and patterns are smaller and can add an interesting touch to certain rooms. Others have a simple border pattern that can help make smaller spaces look larger.
  • colour: The finish on tin ceiling tiles can range from a natural tin colour to white, silver, and an array of other common colours.
  • Size: Although the size of the actual panels does not change much, the size of the patterns vary widely. Some have 6-inch repeating patterns while others have 12-inch repeating patterns.
