Home Theater Remodel Before During And After


In honor of throwbackthursday we are taking you back to 2008 when a talented and creative customer of ours decided to install CTBU Styrofoam ceiling tiles in his Home Movie Theater! Ultra light styrofoam tiles that provide insulation and sound protection were used in white color and then painted in a gold finish. We are in love with the result and so grateful and appreciative for all the efforts that went into providing us with these step by step installation photos! We love to see all of our awesome customers project photos! This may look like a lengthy and complicated installation process, but it really is such a breeze, and so fun. If you are into DIY or are just on a tight budget, these ceiling tiles are perfect for a super unique remodel! No project is too big or small and the options are endless.

    Is there risk of fire from the recessed lighting (or any lighting for that matter) catching the styrofoam on fire?

    if the tiles were installed over popcorn why does the ceiling look so smooth.

    Is the price quoted, per each tile or a package of tile?

    why not paint the tiles before installation? Save overhead/over the shoulder work!

    Thought these tiles were banned because they drip in a fire
