What Houzz contributors are saying:
6. Classically tiled dining nook. A tin ceiling is a classic style found in older homes, and it looks great whether left in its natural metal color or painted white. Here, a natural tin ceiling distinguishes the dining area from the adjacent kitchen. In combination with the rustic table, it softens what is otherwise a sleek, white, contemporary kitchen, bringing a sense of warmth and character to the space. Another bonus of a tin ceiling is that it’s budget-friendly, since there are many affordable tin and metal ceiling tiles on the market. In addition to classic tin, tin-like decorative vinyl is available with an adhesive backing.
Make a feature of it. Whereas painting your low ceiling a light color will help disguise its height, you could decide to bring it to the foreground instead. Think of your low ceiling as a design feature and paint it a bold color, cover it with wallpaper or adorn it with stunning tin tiles, as shown here. The ceiling’s shimmering metallic finish defines the dining area, and turns this otherwise simple white room into a cozier and more enjoyable place for a meal.Browse metal ceiling tiles
