Replacing Ceiling Tile

What is the best solution to replace an old home with the 12" celing tile used in the 70's? It is an old home and we want to restore it to the original victorian design. It has the original plaster and then wood strips that the tile are stapled to.

We created the look of an old pressed tin ceiling by wallpapering over the ceiling tiles with an embosed paterned wallpaper. It looks great and

we get a lot of complements.

At Lowes and Home Depot you can actually buy ceiling tiles made of plastic or vinyl that look just like the old tin ceiling tiles when painted. I think they are applied to the ceiling with some type of adhesive. The previous post suggested the wallpaper which sounds like a great idea with less work time overall and maybe easier to remove with less damage to the ceiling when you want a change. Tori

We got ours from http://www.ashtonclarke.ca and it was cheaper (and looked better) than doing it with the foam ones at home hardware!
