We take pride in our ability to source the best materials and turn them into stunning ceiling tiles that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

The Inspiration Behind Dakota Tin

At Dakota Tin, we strive to create unique and sustainable products that enhance the beauty and functionality of any space. Our flagship product, the Barn Tin Ceiling Tiles, was born out of a desire to upcycle old barn tin roofs and give them a new life as functional and stylish ceiling tiles.

The inspiration for Dakota Tin came from our love of the rustic, industrial aesthetic that is so popular today. We saw a need in the market for high-quality, authentic barn tin ceiling tiles for homes and offices, restaurants, and bars. 

We wanted to create a product that was not only beautiful but also sustainable. And because our tiles are from real tin, they are durable and long-lasting, ensuring they look great for years. 

But our inspiration goes beyond just the materials we use. We pull inspiration from the people who use our products. We love seeing how our tiles can transform a space and bring a unique character and charm to any room. Whether you are a homeowner, a designer, or a contractor, we are here to help you create a truly one-of-a-kind space. 

We are proud of our Barn Tin Ceiling Tiles and the inspiration behind them, and we look forward to continuing to innovate and create new products that inspire and delight our customers.

Our Foundation Started With Tin Ceiling Tiles

Barn Tin Tiles were the first product we created. We wanted to upcycle old barn tin roofs, which are limited and harder to source, into something that could be in modern homes and businesses. 

We started by salvaging old barn roofs from across the Midwest, carefully selecting the best pieces of tin to turn into ceiling tiles. We then developed a process to clean, cut, and shape it to create our signature Barn Tin Tiles. Each tile is unique, with its history and character, making them a perfect fit for rustic and industrial spaces. 

Over time, we realized that our customers wanted more than just barn tin tiles. They wanted a variety of metal products. That’s when we developed our Colorado Steel Line, which includes corrugated metal products with a completely different feel, color, and mood than our Barn Tin Tiles. 

Today, we offer two unique collections of corrugated metal products: the Dakota Barn Tin and the Colorado Steel line. Our products are perfect for bars, industrial lofts, man caves, rustic-style kitchens, and dining spaces.
