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!
If used tastefully, mirrors can improve the overall feeling of your basement. Mirrors can give the appearance of more space than truly exists. If you put mirrors on the ceiling or if you tile part of the ceiling in mirrored tile, you can make the room take on a much larger look and feel. While this doesn't really make the room bigger it does create an optical illusion of space. This is a great trick for those who are working with really small basements. If your ceiling is low you will want to make sure you don't hit the mirror and shatter it.
At the top in terms of installation cost, the professional appearance of a suspended ceiling is difficult to surpass. The same ceiling cover found in most offices, suspended ceilings allow easy access for maintenance and repairs. Also, the individual tiles can be replaced inexpensively and easily in comparison to other ceiling covering methods. There are two disadvantages with suspended ceilings: they waste space and the suspension grids are somewhat fragile, so they might not be the best choice in a space with low clearance or that will be used for rambunctious activity.
With high ceiling, you have a wide option of storage opportunities. If you have no sufficient space in the floor, you can use the space above the cabinetry as the storage space as mentioned before. It will be the right location for installing a pot rack so that you can free up the space in the cabinet. In addition, you can choose a pot rack with adjustable suspension so that you can have a low access. Open shelves can also work best to be installed above the kitchen island.
Game Room: Turn your basement into a space that the whole family will love. A great game room will first need some fun colors for the walls to give the room some extra life. This room will be all about fun and will need to look like a happy exciting place. This type of remodel will need the most comfortable furniture you can find that will also be durable. How about a refrigerator? A pool table, foosball table, video games, and pinball machines are the most popular types of entertainment. Include a bar area and you won't be able to drive away your guests. This idea will bring the family and friends together and be a positive experience for everyone.
If you choose to drywall your basement ceiling you will need to nail a frame to the bottom of the floor joist to have something to hold the drywall in place. There are many drywall tips that you can get on your internet web sites if you need help.
