Tips: It is important for you to mark the center of the ceiling with blue chalk to ensure that the ceiling tiles will continue to stay straight. This type of project has to have at least two people due to the height. It takes at least two people to build the scaffolding and tear down as you move down the ceiling from the peak. It makes it so much easier if someone is gluing and handing the ceiling tile to the other that is installing. Measure and triple check your measurements for cut pieces (We were proud, we only messed up two ceiling tiles). Keep your cut pieces for places you need additional cuts, it saves product.
Describe Your Project: Our open vaulted ceiling that encompassed the second floor open floor layout. It went from 8 ft to 25 ft to peak with a second small vaulted ceiling that had drywall cracks from settling and the heat/cold temperatures through the seasons. This project was a very large project to take on since it was only going to be my husband and I doing the labor. When we found Decorative ceiling tiles online, this answered our first question which was what could we use on the ceiling that would be manageable for the two of us at such high heights. Milan and everyone that I talked to were just great. They helped us through our planning stage to working through questions as the project progressed. We were able to rent scaffolding and had a great neighbor that provided the second scaffolding to accomplish this project. The ceiling had a peak where the large vaulted section met the smaller (2nd Floor) section. Milan was great with his suggestions on where to start with this type of ceiling and also how to finish the peak where the two section ceiling tiles met. We had to tile around two skylights which with Milan's help had no trouble. We added L molding and had bought the Gold touch up paint to do a dry brush on white and it matched great with the tile. The can lights and fan did not present any problems, just removed them, tiled and then put them back up. The whole project took us a day less than two weeks. We also bought a medallion to add to our entryway, which added so much to that area. We love our new ceiling and very proud with what we accomplished.
