An Economical Choice for Your Suspended Ceiling Installation
Drop Ceiling tile can get expensive quickly! You don’t necessarily need to spend an exorbitant amount of money for a quality ceiling tile. Basic drop ceiling tiles are your entry-level ceiling tile and are typically purchased as a 2x4 flat panel and made from a compressed fiber-based material. The 2x4 flat Drop ceiling panel is the most economical choice for any dropped or suspended ceiling installation, especially if you have a a lot of square foot area to cover. Most basic drop ceiling tile designs offer you a porous look and are typically what you would find in school classrooms, hallways and cafeterias.
If you want a slightly different look while still maintaining your budget, you can also choose a 2x2 flat basic drop ceiling tile. All basic ceiling tiles are also offered in the tegular version, or more commonly known as a tegular or reveal-edge version. The reveal-edge tile sits below the grid work a little bit and will give you a 3-D dimensional look. Basic reveal-edge drop ceiling tiles will typically cost 50% more than basic flat ceiling tiles. As you look through the Strictly Ceilings® Drop Ceiling Tile Showroom, you will see that the textures from different manufacturers are usually the same or at least very similar to each other for the basic ceiling tiles.
As the least expensive option, basic drop ceiling tiles offer you the most wiggle room for your budget. Consider finishing your basement or office by covering up intruding pipes, beams, and ductwork without intruding on your wallet.
