    I have this sunroom that is built-in
    It used to be a veranda and has a low ceiling which is sheeted in Masonite or fibro or something it just doesn't feel right. I was going to sheet over it with that faux 20160907_112126.jpg 20160907_112103.jpg VJ panel just to blend it in a bit but then recently I started thinking about the option of pressed tin and then paint over it has anyone ever done much stuff with pressed tin?
    Other ideas were a ceiling rose or some kind of feature on the vertical bit above those blinds (since removed) eg something fan shaped ie the wall equivalent of a ceiling rose?

    Even if you size the ceilings with backing paper, use an expert paper hanger etc the joints will become apparent over time - this isn't a DIY job.

    Exactly it's not something that I would want to learn on it seems to me that it would be just as easy to put up pressed tin as hang wallpaper but the tin would be better/stronger but I need to check the costs

    Maybe just try a skylight first and bring more natural light into the room..

    It's actually a pretty light room. Gets loads of morning sun.
    The problem is a skylight on one side would look funny and on the other side it actually would just look on to another Gable I got a skylight guy around and he wasn't keen he seem to think it would look a bit weird perhaps I could talk to a different skylight man get another opinion

    Very nice.

    You could go modern and architectural and use plywood with express joints (with the backing batons painted black)
