Luisa Nixon Ceiling, 2018-02-20 17:53:21. If you are looking for basement finishing ideas, one of the things you can do is look at homes for sale. Look for homes with a finished basement in the sale papers. Obviously, you aren't going to buy a home but you just want ideas. However, open houses are a great place to see a basement and what the seller has done with it. Open houses are free for people to come in and look around. This will require you to travel around to different homes but it is a great way to see some of the different decorating techniques people use. In most cases, you will find great ideas because sellers want to sell their home and they go out of their way for it to look nice.

Many people see decorating ideas in magazines that are super simple to follow. You don't have to copy an exact design but you can get excellent ideas for decorating. The web is a convenient way to find ideas for remodeling and basement finishing ideas from home. You don't have to travel outside of your home to find ways to decorate and redesign the basement. In addition, the web allows you to get ideas for design when it is convenient for you. This means if you are extremely busy and only have late night hours available, ideas are still available.

Because a basement often provides a blank canvas with which to work, a play room could easily be made with any style and any budget depending on the needs of your family. This is the perfect time to get more creative with paint-polka dots or stripes on the walls, hiring someone to paint a mural, etc. Bean bag chairs for reading, or small tables for tea parties will provide hours of entertainment for years to come.

You can spend a very small amount or you can spend a slight fortune. The best thing however is that, a large extent of the work you perform will augment your home's worth and appeal at any time you might come to a decision to sell it.
Michael Holmes Ceiling, 2017-11-03 02:54:50. A dropped or suspended ceiling is another option for your basement. 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.

Shelly Lindsey Ceiling, 2017-11-17 02:29:34. There are many places you can find great basement remodeling ideas. You might consider finding basement remodeling ideas in homes for sale, by talking to architects, and looking online and in home magazines. A basement should never be left unfinished because there are so many possibilities.

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.

For most people, walking into a room with dark red walls topped with an intensely white ceiling can be almost shocking! It isn't comfortable and cozy at all. To solve this problem, opt for a ceiling color that blends better with your wall color. If you have walls done in shades of jade, why not select a ceiling in ivory or beige? It's a softer hue that complements rather than contrasts with your walls.

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.
Susanna Mathis Ceiling, 2017-11-09 10:00:00. 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.
Shanna Marshall Ceiling, 2017-11-13 21:49:50. In the event that your basement ceiling isn't the access point wires or ductwork, you can simply paint it. 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.
