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.
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.
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.
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.
In the event that your basement ceiling isn't the access point wires or ductwork, you can simply paint it. Obviously this is going to result in a somewhat unfinished look that won't look as modern or chic as the impression you'd achieve with drywall or drop ceilings. It is, however, a functional solution if you're short on cash, and can go quite well if you're aiming for a space with a slightly gritty, rustic appearance.
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!
