Many of the more popular basement ceiling ideas incorporate the use of a drop ceiling, which comes in many different styles and is easy to install - in fact, it's so simple that you might just as well take on the task of installing it as a DIY project. You might also take a look at suspended ceilings, which are similarly simple to install and can offer an even greater degree of acoustic insulation. Suspended ceilings are made up of tiles that attach to a metal grid, a 3-dimensional frame that's light and easy to handle.
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.
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.
The use of drywall to build your ceiling isn't as difficult as it might appear. Drywall is fairly inexpensive so if you break a sheet you don't have to cry yourself to the poor house.

The same ceiling cover found in most offices, suspended ceilings allow easy access for maintenance and repairs. Also, the individual tiles can be replaced inexpensively and easily in comparison to other ceiling covering methods. There are two disadvantages with suspended ceilings: they waste space and the suspension grids are somewhat fragile, so they might not be the best choice in a space with low clearance or that will be used for rambunctious activity.
