I had no idea how easy it is to change the look of your ceiling. This DIY ceiling tile project is really very simple and quick. I think the tiles would look nice on a bedroom or bathroom wall or instead of wainscoting in the dining room. Thanks to EPBOT for the inspiration I had for my kitchen.
If you’ve never heard of this product before, then I’m about to blow your mind:These are Styrofoam ceiling tiles you can glue up right over popcorn ceilings! No prep work required! I’ve already used tiles like these in my office and bedroom closet, and I freaking LOVE them. There are dozens of different designs you can choose from, they’re surprisingly cheap (no more than $4 per 20-inch tile), and they go up in a matter of hours…You can barely see the seams for this design, which makes it look like a big mass of swirlycircles up there. So fun!…Pretty, huh? We’re aiming for a vintage industrial vibe back here, but of course nothing else is finished yet – not even the light. Stay tuned for updates as I have them.
Ok, resources: there are several sites selling these tiles (just google “Styrofoam ceiling tiles”) although most seem to have all the same styles. Almost all of the sites have every design at a set $3.99 per tile, but I price-shopped around and found mine for only $2.18 per tile over at StyroDecor. (SOLD!) Shipping was $14, so the whole ceiling only cost me about $65. And the tiles were here a day and a half later – that’s the fastest shipping of anything I’ve ever purchased online!
And since I’m gushing, let me assure you I’m not being reimbursed in any way for anything in this post. (If only…) I’ve also purchased from Ceiling Tiles By Us in the past, and that was an equally awesome experience. I think they even e-mailed a week later to ask if I needed any help, and to see how the install went.
K, that’s all for now! Hope you guys enjoyed seeing what we’ve been up to the past week!
