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.

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.

Obviously this is going to result in a somewhat unfinished look that won't look as modern or chic as the impression you'd achieve with drywall or drop ceilings. It is, however, a functional solution if you're short on cash, and can go quite well if you're aiming for a space with a slightly gritty, rustic appearance.

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!
Kirsten Montgomery Ceiling, 2018-02-13 17:35:30. 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.
Susanna Mathis Ceiling, 2018-02-12 18:22:42. 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.
Lakisha Mcdaniel Ceiling, 2018-02-13 17:35:28. You expect ceilings to be a dull part of the home. It's what you saw around you as you grew up. 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!
Aurora Ayala Ceiling, 2018-02-12 18:23:04. 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.

Amie Hines Ceiling, 2018-02-12 18:23:02. How about this idea for a thought? You can cover your entire basement ceiling with posters of family favorites, such as movie personalities, sports heroes, famous singers and bands, or anything else you can find. This can be a great family project with everyone being allowed to select posters they like best for the big collage.
