Make the ceiling of a room its focal point by installing new ceiling tiles and cover up the surface for a transforming room upgrade. For a clean contemporary look choose tiles or use a suspended or drop ceiling to conceal unpleasant pipes or wires. To add texture and personality to a room consider installing tin or faux tin tiles. All these tiles come in a range of sizes including 12-inch squares, 24-inch squares and 12-by-24-inch panels. Some are installed directly to furring strips on the ceiling, others are suspended in a metal grid system. The rough edge where the ceiling tiles meet the wall are concealed by molding.
