Our Polystyrene Tiles can be installed over popcorn ceilings or any flat solid surface
– sharp utility knife,
– caulk gun for adhesive,
– adhesive (like Styro Pro or Acryl Pro),
– straight edge to make nice cuts
Prepare the surface; remove loose plaster, paint, wallpaper etc. and draw a chalk line in the middle of the room (preferably through light fixture electrical box, if you have one).
Apply the adhesive; we recommend you use the Styro Pro glue that you can find right here in our store. Installation of the tiles over popcorn ceilings requires more adhesive than for plain drywall or plywood ceilings.
Install the first row along the chalk line; take your time and make it as straight as possible, join the tiles side by side. Work your way to the sides; first install all the whole tiles, then cut the tiles as necessary and install the cut pieces at the end. If you decide to fill in the joints; use paintable silicone to ensure that the ceiling will still remain paintable in future.
