Metal Ceiling Tiles

Create Old-World Charm

For a sophisticated dining room ceiling design, nothing compares to the romance cast by the soft shimmer of an antique metal ceiling. Create the timeless elegance of a 19th century tin ceiling with today’s decorative metal panels.

You’ll find a visual to match your unique style in a selection of exquisitely detailed patterns and lustrous metal finishes in (paintable) white, chrome, brass, copper, and lacquered steel. Add matching cornices to complete the look.

Coffered Ceilings


Coffered ceilings with their dramatic gridwork and sunken panels make a grand statement in a dining room. Easy Elegance™ coffered ceilings capture the geometric symmetry and classic motifs of ancient Greek and Roman architecture in a look that is luxurious and detailed – a look that perfectly captures modern elegance.

This coffered ceiling style may look like a professionally installed custom ceiling, but it's actually a ceiling you can create yourself if you're an experienced DIYer.

Beadboard Ceiling


Late-colonial style placed an emphasis on refined and well-proportioned rooms painted in natural, earth-toned hues, like mustard, forest green, blue-gray, taupe or brown. The walls were then framed by cream-colored crown moldings.

Recreate this dining room design idea on your ceiling with a WoodHaven® white beadboard ceiling surrounded by Metallaire decorated cornices painted a few shades lighter than your wall color.

Dining Room Wainscoting



Colonial style simply demands wainscoting on your dining room walls. If you plan to use this decorating style in your dining room, you can easily install WoodHaven beadboard wainscoting or WoodHaven painted white planks. Either style can be painted to match or contrast with the colors in your room.
