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.
While not that common a choice, using cloth as a ceiling covering provides many advantages. First, its cost completely depends on the material used.
Your basement ceiling might not be the first thing you think of when the subject of basement redecorating comes up. This is often a forgotten area although there are many possibilities that can actually give your basement a nicer overall look and feel. Here are a few tips to help dress up your basement ceiling a bit.
Office or Study Area: Turning your basement into a home office is a great way to provide a quiet, tucked away workspace in your home. A basement turned home office provides a perfect "work away from work" space when you need to be at home or just need a change of scenery.
You don't have to limit yourself to plain, solid colors either. If you have that creative or artistic streak in you, why not paint your ceiling in pictures or themes? For a nursery, a great idea would be to paint a picture of a perfect summer sky in azure blue complete with some clouds. Sounds enchanting right? Complement this theme with a carpet in grass green and add some garden themes on the walls as well. Might as well go all the way right? Don't worry, even adults are sure to enjoy scenes like this from time to time. It's a refreshing break from your regular bedroom too!
Color and texture are as simple as choosing a material. A fairy castle for a little princess, a cowboy theme for a man-cave, an exotic harem - these are all easily created by choosing an appropriate cloth and color as a ceiling hanging. Building a comfortable, immersive theme provides an environment that is more relaxing and fun.
