Designers love accenting certain areas, such as on the wall behind a bar or in front of the bar where the patrons sit. The decorative designs can be found on the walls leading to the restroom or in the restrooms themselves. Many old establishments have the original tin ceilings in them and that might be where the owners, architects and designers got their ideas. The sheets are nailed on wood or glued and nailed onto sheetrock. The newest way to install them is to lay them in the grid system of a suspended ceiling, so as not to tear down an existing ceiling, but still make it look old or stylish to its surrounding.

Tin ceilings were used primarily for residential homes when they were first introduced some time during the Victorian Era, late 1890s. Since then the ceilings have found their way in the commercial industry. Many original designs are now available from Chelsea and their styles range from Americana and Art Deco to Turn of the Century and Victorian. There are different size pattern that make if more appropriate for certain areas. High ceilings can use a 24" design, where as low ceilings can use a 12" design. Smaller spaces would use a 6" design that also makes a small area seem bigger because of the 6" repeat pattern. Most all come on 2' x 4' sheets for easy installation and the material is tin-plate steel. and are nailed up. Glenn Eldridge from Chelsea recommends using the 2' x 2' size sheets if you are planning to use them in a suspended ceilings. Also newly available are hand-painted faux finishes that are extremely beautiful.

Starting with the Victorian designs in the gay 90's, then appearing in the early 1900's are the Turn of the Century designs. After that the 1920s brought the Art Deco era and after that Americana became fashionable. There is even a Country design. Pick the time period you prefer to recreate and make tin ceilings part of that recreation. Tin ceilings, just the words themselves sound like a unique alternative.
