There is a Tinman in Houston, Texas and his Company Manufactures and Distributes Tin Ceilings Throughout the WorldPosted:
Glenn “The Tinman” Eldridge of Chelsea Decorative Metal Company has a website that is as unique as the product he sells, tin ceilings.
Available are styles that range from Art Deco and Turn of the Century to Americana and Victorian. The site will take you through the different patterns that are carried in those styles. The tin panels can change a boring room into an elegant room by using this wonderful product. Just as room sizes vary so do the size of patterns that the company offers. The sheets come in 3", 6", 12" and 24" repeat patterns to accommodate any size area or any room. A page is dedicated to 6-inch designs, one for 12-inch designs and another for their 24-inch designs.
Kitchens and dining rooms are the most common, but bedrooms, playrooms, game rooms, halls and even bathrooms can be victims of tin ceilings. The Tinman's weapon of choice is the tin ceiling. He doesn’t fight crime just ugly interiors, and that isn't just residentially. Commercially tin ceilings have been used in restaurants such as TGIFridays, in sandwich places like Potbellys, ice cream parlors, hardware stores, bars and even in motion pictures like “Coyote Ugly”, where it was above the heads of all those bar dancing waitresses. His company has supplied tin ceilings to film and production companies in Hollywood for their movie sets for years. The first movie Glenn remembers suppling was when the company was operating in New York in the late 70s and that was "Between the Lines", which was a story about a newspaper such as the Village Voice. Since Hollywood is always doing period pieces, tin ceilings can help set the scene, whether tin is put on the ceilings or put on the walls.
Three relatively new features are now available.
One: There are a few new finishes for an already attractive product. Chelsea has found a new dramatic way to make the attractive pressed tin panels even more attractive. Having the designs accented by complimentary colors makes them even more striking to the eyes. The hand painted faux finishes have names like Plantation Charm, Copper Patina, Gothic Gold, Medieval Wine as well as many others. A bright copper finish is also available.
Two: Chelsea now offers the decorative sheets in the new size of 23 3/4" x 23 3/4" (2 x 2 sheets) to fit in the grid system for a drop-in ceilings. This now allows one to have access behind their ceilings when needed and at the same time decorate their ceilings with a multitude of designs instead of using the plain perforated tiles.
Three: The company, which has been selling tin ceilings in the United States for over 65 years and opened their doors to sell to Canada in the 1980s have also decided to market their tin ceiling product internationally.
Tin ceilings were introduced to North America as a less expensive way to decorate ceilings. The labor to carve out designs in the plaster was replaced by tin sheets that had the designs pressed into them. The sheets could be easily installed on wood and painted white to match the color of plaster. Today what also mades the tin ceilings desirable to consumers is the light weight of the metal, the durability, the fire resistance quality and the affordable pricing.
Besides ceilings many people are using the tin sheets for a back splash. The site offers instructions for both ceilings and a back splash, but the Tinman and his consultants at Chelsea are happy to help with any questions when you call and the Tinman himself does diagrams when room dimensions are sent. So his drawings are specific to your areas.
The Tinman name brings a smile to everyone’s face and is not to be mistaken for any other tinman, since Glenn has a heart.
