The wonderful thing about drywall is its unique versatility - unlike prefabricated ceiling panels, once you've installed drywall, you can paint it in any color you like, meaning that you can realize the most whacky of your basement ceiling ideas, be they painting patterns or glow in the dark stars on your ceiling. On the other hand, drywall is quite a bit more complicated than ceiling panels when it comes to installation, and the time it takes to complete the installation of drywalling could span into months (as opposed to the mere weeks that ceiling panel installation is likely to call for). Remember when painting that the color you choose will have a very powerful impact on the atmosphere of the room. It's ideal to go for light colors, such as eggshell, peach or baby blue, as warm, dark colors, such as red or brown, will lend the entire space an oppressive feel - something claustrophobics really won't appreciate when they're already in a confined space underground.
The ceiling is one of the important aspects of your basement, we may find it ugly but don't worry because there are a lot of products available that can turn your ceiling into a work of art. The basement is naturally dark, cool and uninviting and people want the exact opposite which is warm and cozy. People can be very creative and achieving this is not a big deal anymore. There are several types of basement ceiling finishings and it's often confusing what works best for you. Basically, basement ceilings can be categorized to either be dry walled or suspended. Decorative touches will be a part of your finishing steps. Don't be afraid to experiment, be creative and think outside the box.
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.
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.
If you choose to drywall your basement ceiling you will need to nail a frame to the bottom of the floor joist to have something to hold the drywall in place. There are many drywall tips that you can get on your internet web sites if you need help.
