You can always go back to the old stand-by of painting your basement ceiling if it needs a bit of perking up. It is amazing what a couple coats of paint on the ceiling can do for a basement. If you use a light color it will open up your basement, darker colors will increase the basement's resemblance of a cave. A fresh coat of paint is like giving your basement a face-lift.
Cloth ceiling covering is easily removed. This is a huge advantage to using cloth. In a maintenance emergency, being able to quickly remove the ceiling covering to make repairs could save massive costs. Repair problems getting progressively worse or collateral costs from gaining access to floor joists or overhead pipes and wires are eliminated by choosing a ceiling covering that is easily removed. In addition to maintenance, being able to remove the ceiling covering easily provides great customization of the area. A space that a 5 year old might consider heaven rapidly becomes an embarrassment when he or she grows older. Changing the space to reflect changing tastes is quick and easy when using a cloth ceiling covering.
Children Play Room: If you have a house with small children, a play room might be the perfect remodel for your basement. 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.
Once you have nailed up the drywall you will need to tape it to cover the cracks between sheets of drywall and the places where you nailed the drywall to the frame. After it is sanded smooth you can apply the paint or acoustical material.
After you've considered some of the different designs you can implement to turn your basement into a comfortable and entertaining space, it is time to get down to specifics and practicalities, such as basement ceiling ideas. The ceiling is the third dimension of your space, and is often neglected by homeowners because, well, most people don't look up all that much. But the fact is that the color you use, as well as the manner in which lighting is installed in the ceiling, is going to be the thing that decides whether your basement ever stops being a cave and becomes a room. As with any matter of interior décor, a little time spent searching online will reveal that there are thousands upon thousands of basement ceiling ideas at your fingertips; all you need to do is start looking, comparing options, and developing your own ideas.
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.
