Lakisha Mcdaniel Ceiling, 2018-02-22 17:09:19. One of the most challenging ideas for basement renovations are the ceilings. There are many different types of ceilings that you may choose from. There are plain ceilings just covered with drywall and painted. There are acoustical effects you can get from special paints that you apply to the ceiling dry wall. You can use suspended ceilings or other kinds of ceiling tile that gives a pleasing site to your basement rooms.

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.

Nobody was adventurous with their ceiling color - good old white or maybe even a daring cream (yes that was sarcasm) is what you came to expect in terms of the heights of ceiling décor. Your ceiling doesn't need to be boring however; as a matter of fact it can be a talking point of the room if you really want it to be. How? Simply by adding some wonderful color!

Another doozey on the list of basement ceiling ideas is to install mirrors on the ceiling, which can do wonders for a low, small space, lending itself to the illusion of a much bigger room. This can also intensify your lighting, giving it an ambient quality where it might otherwise have brought about stark shadows. Indirect lighting directed at the walls can reflect light onto the ceiling, making it appear higher in the process..

Home builders know how to remodel and finish a basement at the lowest cost possible and still make it look like a thousand bucks. You might consider making the basement a bar area or even a party room for the weekends. This is a great way to change the basement and make the most use of the space. You might even find you absorb all of the cost in the remodeling project because you will be spending more time at home and going out much less.
Willie Steele Ceiling, 2018-02-09 17:32:49. A long time ago a basement was nothing more than a cold, damp space for keeping vegetables, fruits, and other items people wanted to keep cool. No one ever went down there unless they absolutely had to get something. As the years passed, people bought homes with these old cellars. They might use them to store their holiday decorations or other items they no longer want on the main floors of their homes, but they're still forbidding places. Of course, newer homes are being built with finished basements that can be used as extra living space. In keeping with their functionality, the ceiling is just as important as any of the other décor.

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.

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.

Neva Steele Ceiling, 2018-02-08 17:09:15. 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.

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.
