How To Cover A Popcorn Ceiling From Decorative Ceiling Tiles


So you have an ugly popcorn ceiling and are searching for ways to cover it up without having to scrape it because you know how messy that gets. There are some other ways to cover a popcorn ceiling but if you are looking for the most affordable, easiest and fastest way to do so than I trully believe that you will not find anything better than covering your ugly popcorn ceiling with Styrofoam Ceiling Tiles. Because I have done this myself several times and learned few things about the installation over popcorn I decided to share them with you so that you don't have to make the same mistakes I have done.

  • Does your Popcorn have asbestos? ( Houses before 1970, used to have asbestos in their popcorn ceilings and if your house was built before then, chances are that you have asbestos in it. In paint stores they sell kits that can help you determine asbestos presence. If you have asbestos, it is good to have it removed by professionals.
  • Is your popcorn strong enough to hold the tiles? ( Some popcorn ceilings may be very unstable and the best way to find it is to push on it with your finger and see what happens. If it is falling apart, you have to remove it and get rid of the dust that will be left over. If it is strong and stable, you can start your installation.
