How do you paint a drop ceiling grid?
Just so, how do you paint drop ceiling panels?
Place paint from the paint can into a paint tray. Dip a narrow roller into the paint. Roll paint onto the ceiling grid to paint it. Use the same color as the ceiling tiles, or select a contrasting color if you prefer.
Secondly, what is the best paint for ceiling tiles? Kilz and CoverStain are primers that also work to hold back water and other stains. Once the Kilz is dry you can apply any type of paint over it without using any other primer. I've always used a flat latex paint for ceilings.
In this way, how can I make my drop ceiling look better?

- Paint them. Using matte paint in a dark color can help your ceiling recede, which not only makes the tiles less noticeable but gives the impression of taller ceilings.

- Wallpaper them.
