Often basements are left partially finished. This means you have open ceilings that show the studs, wires, and the under side of the floor boards above you. The quick solution for this is a suspended basement ceiling. These are easy to install and once installed your basement takes on a more homey feeling right away. You have easy access to any wiring and/or pipes that other ceiling options would have covered up but you don't have to look at them every day.
Ok, so not everyone happens to be a huge fan of colored ceilings. In fact, some readers might give you that bemused look if you give them this tip. But put those eyebrows down first - here are some reasons why a colored ceiling isn't such a bad idea at all...
The wonderful thing about drywall is its unique versatility - unlike prefabricated ceiling panels, once you've installed drywall, you can paint it in any color you like, meaning that you can realize the most whacky of your basement ceiling ideas, be they painting patterns or glow in the dark stars on your ceiling. On the other hand, drywall is quite a bit more complicated than ceiling panels when it comes to installation, and the time it takes to complete the installation of drywalling could span into months (as opposed to the mere weeks that ceiling panel installation is likely to call for). Remember when painting that the color you choose will have a very powerful impact on the atmosphere of the room. It's ideal to go for light colors, such as eggshell, peach or baby blue, as warm, dark colors, such as red or brown, will lend the entire space an oppressive feel - something claustrophobics really won't appreciate when they're already in a confined space underground.
