Once you have nailed up the drywall you will need to tape it to cover the cracks between sheets of drywall and the places where you nailed the drywall to the frame. After it is sanded smooth you can apply the paint or acoustical material.
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.
If you're using your basement as an area to entertain guests in or as guest rooms, it's likely you'll want a more traditional type of ceiling. Using a lovely ceiling fan as your focal point will both look nice and keep the air in the basement moving. If your basement is large enough, you may want to add more than one fan. Another idea when decorating the ceiling in a more formal basement is to hang nice chandeliers from the ceiling.
The main thing to remember when doing your basement ceiling is to think about the way you're planning to use the basement. Who knows? You might just come up with a brand new idea of your own.
