LANCASTER, Pa. (August 27, 2013) — Want a ceiling design that will set your home apart? In just an afternoon, StyleStix™ ceiling grid covers from Armstrong Residential Ceilings lets the do-it-yourselfer add classically-detailed architectural molding to a suspended ceiling, covering old, yellowing grids simply and affordably, right on the spot.
Instead of painting, replacing, or just deciding to give up on your unsightly ceiling, StyleStix can provide a high-end, custom finished look for a fraction of the cost of custom ceiling work. You can create a brand new coffered ceiling in a matter of hours. Architecturally eye-catching, sunken panels or “coffers” add depth to a room, making the ceiling appear taller.
“With StyleStix, you can give that old suspended ceiling a fresh look without the inconvenience of having a new ceiling installed; it simply snaps over the existing grid,” says Lori Rowley, marketing manager, Armstrong Residential Ceilings. “StyleStix offers a sophisticated look that can fit almost every budget.”
It’s easy to create a high-end custom ceiling panel installation with StyleStix. StyleStix grid covers are made out of PVC, so they're lightweight and easy to install. Simply snap StyleStix right over the existing grid. The covers are designed to look like custom molding with shaped ends for perfect intersections. No need for cutting, sanding or caulking.
Part of the Custom Creations™ line by Armstrong, StyleStix is available in a 2” grid cover, a 6” grid cover and a 6” wall molding cover. This line is made to coordinate with a standard white drop ceiling and is paintable to match the look and feel of any room.
StyleStix is mold, mildew and bacteria resistant and is available to fit a 24” x 24” ceiling module with a standard 15/16th inch grid face. In addition, the collection comes with a lifetime manufacturer’s limited warranty.
If you're worried about StyleStix not matching your décor, don't be. It’s easily painted with latex paint for a stand-out look. There’s no simpler, more beautiful and more affordable way to carry the dramatic look of a coffered ceiling to your interior design.
“This is a maintenance-free solution to industrial looking, stained or yellowed grids in suspended ceiling applications. Since there are no special tools needed to install StyleStix, this is an easy do-it-yourself project,” adds Rowley.
Retailing for approximately $1.50 per foot, StyleStix lets homeowners achieve a sophisticated, low maintenance look at a low price, which is a dramatic decrease from the cost of installing custom coffer work. ”With StyleStix, an average size basement ceiling remodel might range in cost from $500 to $700; the cost of custom coffer ceilings for the same space can cost as much as $9,000,” offers Rowley.
