Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by almostdone Great looking ceiling. A bit of learning curve to install as ceiling tiles...
The end result was worth it. A bit of learning curve to get a method going, but once you do, they're easy enough to install. It would have been easier with a second set of hands. The manufacturers install video doesn't supply the info you need to use these as ceiling tiles. Their estimate on adhesive usage is way off as well. While they say you can get three tiles to a tube of adhesive, it's more like almost a full tube to a tile. (10 tile install took 9 tubes of adhesive - this was on a ceiling so I applied it accordingly) I used the recommended Loctite Power Grab adhesive and it worked great. Smoothed out nicely under the tiles. They cut better with a good scissors rather than a utility blade. Until you watch the video, you won't know that the tiles need to be staggered. My room was just under 8 x10, so it was a full in the middle with two cut pieces on either side and then two full pieces with just a bit of either end cut off, etc.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CountryK This Faux Tin Tile Ceiling Completes Our Farmhouse Kitchen!
I've wanted to cover our 1970's swirled kitchen ceiling with genuine, white tin tiles but they are pricy.
I came across these faux tin tiles and wanted to give them a try. But I was concerned it was too rough to glue them directly onto the ceiling. So I contacted the company directly and was told it wasn't. Yippee!
I ordered the tiles and they arrived safely with no damage from shipping. I did purchase extra tiles and the recommended adhesive.
My husband and I took our time and completed the project over two weekends. They were easy to cut and fairly easy to install.
I couldn't be happier with the results!!! With the additional tiles, we plan to put them on the powder room ceiling off the kitchen!

These ceiling tiles look great when installed. They paint easily once installation is completed.
Each tile measures 24.5" x 48.5". This allows overlapping of each tile during the installation process. When installed correctly, the seams almost disappear and are completely hidden when painted. You will want to keep these measurements in mind for the first tile you are installing. After that, each covers a 24" x 48" area. When you have to do special cuts, make sure you test fit the cut piece before installing.
We started in the bathroom of our travel trailer with these tiles. The ceiling was cleaned and we used contact cement to install the tiles. No staples or other fasteners are required when using this method. Also, since no staples or nails are used, you don't have to go back and putty the fasteners. I recommend that you have some experience in using contact cement when choosing this installation method.
As you can see from the pictures, the ceiling tile looks high-end and classy.
Now, on to the rest of the ceiling!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sandiegohaunted Too good of a product
This is one of those genius products I wish I had known about before re dry walling my old bathroom ceiling in 2010. Luckily I moved and found this product for a redo. I moved into a 1947 tract house with no air circulate for the bathroom thus the ceiling drywall was crumbling. It became clear all I had to do was fix the joints and sand to prep for these tiles. They go up fairly easy in big sheets but can be a tad messy with the adhesive when working alone, so I enlisted a helper. Between sanding and prep I spent less time, finances, and had a better looking end product versus traditional drywall. Also because they are plastic they are pretty much water proof protecting the existing drywall for years to come.

It's very hard to review one single tile. I had hoped for enough to be able to do something useful with them. I can only tell about the appearance of the tile itself and can tell you nothing about the look of the finished product, nor anything about the installation.
It is thick/strong enough to hold its shape while working with it. It appears as though the seams are intended to overlap, rather than butt together. Not sure how that will work out when you have four tiles meeting at the same point.
Cuts easily with scissors or utility knife.

When I first ordered it was going to be used as a back splash for the stove, but I found out it's so useful in other areas, like along the sides of the toilet, very easy to wipe clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AussieLady COVERS UP AN UGLY POPCORN CEILING EASILY!
I have popcorn ceilings in my 20 year old house, and I particularly dislike the ceiling in the hall which has been patched a few times. I had considered putting in the time and effort to scrape off the popcorn, but was flinching at the prospect. Then I saw these ceiling panels!
I ordered just one of these panels initially because I wanted to see what kind of quality it was before ordering enough to cover my hall ceiling. I had some reservations, knowing it was plastic, but my concerns were totally unfounded. This is really a good looking product!
The panels are 2 feet by 4 feet and very light weight. In fact, each panel weighs less than a pound. The imprinted design is very pleasant and does indeed mimic the old-style tin ceilings, although it doesn't have an "old fashioned" look. My house is quite modern but this will still work with the décor.
What I liked most is the very clear installation instructions -- all you do is apply a quarter inch bead of Loctite adhesive around the outside of the panel, and a cross pattern in the left, center and right of the panel. Nothing around the edge where the panels will overlap. Then just press onto the ceiling. The directions even told me that if I was adhering the panel over a popcorn ceiling -- and I am! -- to make sure to knock off the low hanging pieces and the glue will then create a leveling effect for the rest! What's not to love about that?
I am thrilled with this solution to covering up my ugly popcorn hall ceiling and will now measure and order the remaining panels that I need to complete this job.
