Great ideas! In hindsight [that 20/20 stuff] I wish I had added tile to the ceilings in our bathrooms. They were the first leg of our total house remodel that were completed over ten years ago. I had the floors and walls covered in tile and now that it's time to repaint the ceiling again I'm kicking myself for not doing them too. Oh well. Live and learn better.

I think the tile is great but I wonder about the acoustics of a room with a lot of ceramic tile in it, as in the blue and white tiled picture. Also, a lot of ceramic tile might make a room feel cold. I think I'd try to balance it with a lot of warm textures.

I want to try broken tile mosaics in our kitchen -- trying to imagine doing a whole ceiling with that! Ours is popcorn, too, so it would be a great way to get rid of that. But I'm sure it would be a project that never got finished, as someone posted above.

In a previous kitchen we had, our ceiling looked a lot like #6. We used paintable wall paper that had a small medallion / tile look. We painted it a metallic silver with a light black glaze that was pushed into all the low areas.
