A dropped or suspended ceiling is another option for your basement. These ceilings have a grid work of metal bars in the shape of an upside-down T, these are suspended on wires from the overhead joists. A dropped ceiling is great because there is no need for you to move wires, pipes or ducts and the joists don't have to be straight for the finished ceiling to look flat. This type of basement ceiling finishing will give you easy access to heating, cooling and electrical systems. Adding some lighting fixtures can be done with ease as well. In addition to that, a dropped ceiling shields unwanted noise from above. However, one of the biggest disadvantages of a dropped or suspended ceiling is that it eats up too much head space so if you already have a very low basement ceiling then you might want to look into this first.
There are so many uses for a finished basement. It can be a wonderful area in which to entertain guests. If you have teens in your house, it's an ideal place for them to entertain friends while you live your normal life above ground. Some people choose to turn all or part of their basements into recreational facilities where the family can get together to enjoy many activities. Still others use the basement area as a place for guests to stay. When choosing the right ceiling for your basement, make sure to consider the function you're going to be using the area for.
Office or Study Area: Turning your basement into a home office is a great way to provide a quiet, tucked away workspace in your home. A basement turned home office provides a perfect "work away from work" space when you need to be at home or just need a change of scenery.
Game Room: Turn your basement into a space that the whole family will love. A great game room will first need some fun colors for the walls to give the room some extra life. This room will be all about fun and will need to look like a happy exciting place. This type of remodel will need the most comfortable furniture you can find that will also be durable. How about a refrigerator? A pool table, foosball table, video games, and pinball machines are the most popular types of entertainment. Include a bar area and you won't be able to drive away your guests. This idea will bring the family and friends together and be a positive experience for everyone.
After you've considered some of the different designs you can implement to turn your basement into a comfortable and entertaining space, it is time to get down to specifics and practicalities, such as basement ceiling ideas. The ceiling is the third dimension of your space, and is often neglected by homeowners because, well, most people don't look up all that much. But the fact is that the color you use, as well as the manner in which lighting is installed in the ceiling, is going to be the thing that decides whether your basement ever stops being a cave and becomes a room. As with any matter of interior décor, a little time spent searching online will reveal that there are thousands upon thousands of basement ceiling ideas at your fingertips; all you need to do is start looking, comparing options, and developing your own ideas.
