You don't have to limit yourself to plain, solid colors either. If you have that creative or artistic streak in you, why not paint your ceiling in pictures or themes? For a nursery, a great idea would be to paint a picture of a perfect summer sky in azure blue complete with some clouds. Sounds enchanting right? Complement this theme with a carpet in grass green and add some garden themes on the walls as well. Might as well go all the way right? Don't worry, even adults are sure to enjoy scenes like this from time to time. It's a refreshing break from your regular bedroom too!

Another idea when decorating the ceiling in a more formal basement is to hang nice chandeliers from the ceiling.
For the vast majority of residential basement ceilings, gypsum board attached directly to overhead joists is the ceiling finishing method of choice. This creates a clean, easily painted surface. Gypsum board ceiling covering is middle-of-the-road in terms of price. The method does have one major disadvantage though: any repairs or maintenance work done overhead requires destroying and replacing part of the ceiling. While not a common occurrence in most homes, the mess, inconvenience, and cost are things to consider when choosing this ceiling covering method.
