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.
Another really cool way to cover your basement ceiling is by turning it into a solar system. Paint the entire ceiling black or dark blue. Then you can use stick on planets and stars to create your solar system. This is a great idea for family recreation rooms. Besides, you'll be able to teach your kids a lot about the solar system by just talking about your ceiling.
Ok, so not everyone happens to be a huge fan of colored ceilings. In fact, some readers might give you that bemused look if you give them this tip. But put those eyebrows down first - here are some reasons why a colored ceiling isn't such a bad idea at all...
Coffered ceilings, on the other hand, are very similar in technical terms to suspended ceilings, but differ from them in being decorated with ornate recessed panels, offering a more corporate appearance, ideal for those who plan to turn their basement into a home office or formal study. The drawback of plain old suspended ceilings, on the other hand, lies in the industrial look they tend to give a room, which can be great if you're into Manhattan-style architecture and not-so-great if your house has been designed to look like a Tuscan villa. For practical purposes, they're great, as one can quickly access any wires pipes they conceal by snapping away segments of the ceiling. Most building codes require at least 90 inches of headroom for a finished basement, so in the event that your basement has a low ceiling, you have two options - either dig up the floor, or go for drywall.
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.
