Susanna Mathis Ceiling, 2018-02-21 17:55:53. 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.

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.

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!

Imagine having a brightly colored ceiling that, no matter what the weather may be like, will be something you can look up, smile at and admire.

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.
Mitzi Morrow Ceiling, 2018-02-08 17:09:11. Suspended basement ceilings are commercial in nature but there are also advantages. The structure helps hamper noise levels especially if you are there in your basement working. Moreover, the uppermost portion of the ceiling can be accessed with convenience. If wires and ducts run on top of your ceiling, having a suspended ceiling makes them easily accessible.
Neva Steele Ceiling, 2018-02-08 17:09:15. 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!

Footsteps from above, excited cheers from below as someone watches a game or plays video games - this sort of thing can be disruptive to people in both areas. Muffling these sounds even slightly results in a better enjoyment of the areas.
