A playroom for the kids, a man-cave for poker night, and an office for a home business - a basement can serve all these functions. Choosing the right basement ceiling ideas can be geared to the space's specific purpose.
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.
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.
One of the most important things to consider when remodeling your basement is the basement ceiling. People find basement ceilings a bit hideous and if you are of the same opinion, then you need to do something about it. Most people want their basement to be warm and cozy, instead of that desolate look often acquainted with an unfinished basement. There are different basement ceiling ideas to make your ceiling a place that you want it to be. Basement ceilings may either be dry walled or suspended. You can choose which kind to install but always remember to add decorative touches in order to make them look exactly like any other rooms in your home.
Guest Room: Decorating a guest room or in-law suite is a great way to utilize your finished basement. It adds extra space as well as provides an area for out of town family and guests to relax while visiting your home. This type of room should be filled with tranquil, comfortable furnishings. It should provide all of the conveniences of a home away from home. It should also provide a place for your guests to retreat after a long day.
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.
