What is the best kind of paint for ceiling tiles?


Answer by  SallyJ64 (3121)

Standard drop ceiling tiles are very absorbant and will crunble easily. Cheap tempra paint (like elementary schools use) or acrylic paints will work well. I would stay away from oil based paints since the ceiling tiles will suck the oil in and make it difficult for them to dry.

You can paint a ceiling almost the same as a wall. You should select a waterbased indoor paint. Waterbased paint ensures an easy clean up. The finish of the paint ranges between flat to gloss. In most offices you see a flat finish, this keeps distracting glare low.

Any good quality flat ceiling paint will work very well on ceiling tiles and can be applied with a good quality roller that is at least 1/2 inch thick.Eggshell or satin finish paints may also be used,but you don't want to use semi or high gloss.many people are using color on their ceilings as well.
