What would be the best way to go about this? It must be able to withstand moisture. I have seen vinyl ceiling tiles for a drop ceiling but there is not really a lot of head room (90"). The over all area is 97 x 110 and there will be a jacuzzi tub there.

I have used tin squares on basements and you could get screws that match the tin finish.

Did you attach directly to the joists? – user20717 Apr 2 '14 at 16:03
Yep. Had to put some crosses in every once in a while. It is a really good look but the tins that look seem to cost a bit. Also if you can get hex head screws in same finish it can look really good - I have been able to do this with stainless steel and satin. – DMoore Apr 2 '14 at 16:18
You have to figure tins are perfect here because the go with a bathroom and can take a little water on them. – DMoore Apr 2 '14 at 16:20
There are also vinyl tin-look panels that give a similar appearance but are more water resistant. – bib Apr 3 '14 at 12:25
