This could be a challenge. (Paintable, textured ceiling wallpaper)

My wife thinks that paintable/textured wallpaper would look good on our bedroom ceiling. Is there a certain type of paper made especially for ceilings? I would imagine that each piece would need be cut long enough to go from wall to wall for less seams, so it’d be a major challenge getting it up there. There must be an easier way to apply this than the nightmare I envision. Suggestions? yes, there is paintable textured wallpaper. it looks sort of like the old tin ceiling tiles once hung. there are 2 different types though. the real stuff is called Anaglypta and is papery. it’s texture is puffed out on one side and concave on the back side (hope that makes sense) so when you hang it, you *could* actually flatten out the pattern ruin it easily. avoid this kind. the other kind is more like thick vinyl. it’s got the relief design on the one side, but the back side is smooth flat. so you can’t smash it flat. it’s kind of spongy in a way. i recommend this kind. the adhesive you use is key. it’s gotta be really good heavy stuff. no pre-pasted wet-the-back easy-to-install situation here. yes, your strips will have to run from one side of the room all the way to the other. unless the pattern would allow you to piece it together. yes, it’s difficult to hide the seams because the design is in relief. yes, it’s miserable to work overhead. i would think you almost couldn’t do it without a helper’s extra set of hands. and then, IF you get it hung successfully, you get to PAINT. yes, this might be the situation to call in a pro. good luck! P.S. from a decorating standpoint, this stuff might actually be too much for a large room like a bedroom. a compromise might be to just use it in the bathroom or an entryway or a powder room or maybe kitchen. Easier would be to get painted ceiling tiles. These look like the old tin ceilings but are available painted. You can work at your own pace, not having to do an entire strip at a time. You probably won’t find them at the local big box. The internet might be your only source. Armstrong is one company that makes them. Annette; Thank you, because this decorating request was my wifes idea (guess who’d be doing the work), your P.S. from a decorating standpoint, this stuff might actually be too much for a large room like a bedroom. just might save me some back ache when she reads it BobF; The Ceiling tiles you mention sound a whole lot easier than a 15′ piece of wet paper overhead. We have some good home decorating stores locally, so sourcing these tiles through one of them should’nt be a problem. Regards Originally Posted by BobF Easier would be to get painted ceiling tiles.

The internet might be your only source. Armstrong is one company that makes them. There are actually quite a few different types available on the internet that range from plastic to styrofoam to be installed by adhesive and can be done by just one person working alone. HOWEVER, they are VERY VERY expensive for what you are getting. Actual tin was even more expensive. After looking for quite some time the cost of those tiles was so far out there that we opted for the wallpaper which we got on a closout deal at one of the big box stores. We are still in the planning stages for our build so I can’t tell you how difficule it is to actually install the wallpaper on the ceiling. Will it be a bear, I already assumed it would be. M. I have rented a home recently, and I am planning to decorate it. I have the plan to decorate it, but I think I don’t have sufficent budget right at the moment to decorate it. I don’t have enought experience with decorating the ceiling via the wallpapers, but afterall its an great idea to decorate the home.
