So put away that outdated beige, white or cream ceiling idea. Put away that stippled/popcorn type finish. Most people neglect their ceilings when they're redecorating their homes. Why hold yourself back? 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.
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.
Another basement ceiling option is to install ceiling mirrors. Installing mirrors on the ceiling enhances the lighting that you have in your basement. You can use mirrored tiles in an ingenious way for your basement to appear larger than its actual size. This is an effective optical illusion for smaller basements. Make sure that your ceiling is not so low to avoid accidentally smashing up the mirrors.
What are we going to do about these duct-work runs, and all these pipes and wires running 10 different ways? We can't just cover them with new drywall! What is our next plan of action for hiding the UGLY \"ceiling-scape\" of our basement to make it both functional and pleasing to the eyes?
Basement ceiling finishing is not that difficult except if you do not have any experience at all when it comes to this kind of project. You may want to read about the general types of basement ceilings to get you started. The first one is the dry-walled ceiling. The drawback in this is that it requires a lot of labor and some rental equipment. It's harder to install and it can be quite messy than basement ceiling finishing systems. If you're worried about having access to pipes and wires running along your ceiling then you can integrate it in the design or provide an entrance. To emphasize the ceiling, you can use trimmings and attractive tiles.
