An easier solution for ideas for basement ceiling is a suspended ceiling. Here again you will need a frame to suspend your ceiling tiles from and a frame around the outside to determine the area you need covered. There are many advantages to the suspended ceiling. One big advantage is your accessibility to the wiring and lighting in your basement ceiling.
Using heavy cloth as a basement ceiling can actually create a minor sound barrier between the living areas above and below the ceiling. Footsteps from above, excited cheers from below as someone watches a game or plays video games - this sort of thing can be disruptive to people in both areas. Muffling these sounds even slightly results in a better enjoyment of the areas.
One of the most challenging ideas for basement renovations are the ceilings. There are many different types of ceilings that you may choose from. There are plain ceilings just covered with drywall and painted. There are acoustical effects you can get from special paints that you apply to the ceiling dry wall. You can use suspended ceilings or other kinds of ceiling tile that gives a pleasing site to your basement rooms.
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!
So put away that outdated beige, white or cream ceiling idea.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.
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.
