Tin Tiles

Ceiling tiles are a great solution for spaces with unfortunate but necessary drop ceilings. In basements, drop ceilings allow instant access to leaky pipes or damaged wiring. Sure, the grids can be torn out, and drywall can go up; however, that’s a major headache. And if you can’t do it yourself, it’s also a major cost. Simply swap out unsightly foam tiles for raised panel tiles. This is a great project for people with beginner DIY skills. Often, the only tool needed is a utility knife to cut the end pieces to size.
