Have you ever been in a house built in the early 1900's that had the original pressed tin ceilings? My great grandmother had them in her bathroom and I remember being fascinated by her "fancy" ceiling even though the metal tiles were rusted and chippy. Did you know you can buy faux tin ceiling tiles at a fraction of the cost of the real thing that are incredibly easy to put up? We installed some in our small half bathroom and I just love how it adds a vintage flair to our new room. To read all the details along with where to find the best deals on the products we used, head on over to my blog: https://www.simplicityinthesouth.com/how-to-install-faux-tin-ceiling-tiles-bathroom/
Dress Up Your Ceilings With Faux Tin Ceiling Tiles
BEFORE- We started off with a blank space when we added a downstairs half bath room. My vision for the new bathroom was to incorporate materials that would have been original to our home built in 1915.
Since the panels are plastic, they work well on ceilings in areas that get high humidity such as bathrooms with showers. Since they aren't real tin metal tiles, you don't have to worry about them rusting.

I love it! We have a 100+ year old house and have been considering ceiling treatments. I appreciate that you included stores and online sources for the best pricing.
Answering another comment, you can get moisture retardant paint to use on the ceiling drywall before hanging these panels.
