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!
While not that common a choice, using cloth as a ceiling covering provides many advantages. First, its cost completely depends on the material used.
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.
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. Hanging drywall on your ceiling will give the room a professional look if done right. If you are unsure how there are many tutorials available online and you can talk to the staff at your local home improvement store. You can also hire professionals to hang the drywall for you. Once the drywall is installed you can paint, or texture and paint, your basement ceiling to give the room a finished look.
The ideal cabinetry for high ceiling has the height of about 7 feet and 6 inches off the floor to the top. For the space above the cabinet, you can be creative in using it. You can use it for displaying art objects like potted plants or sculptures. In addition, you can also use it for storing kitchen appliances which are rarely used in attractive boxes. If you don't want empty space above the cabinet, you can install a soffit which can form a cove ceiling for mediating the difference in the height of the ceiling. As an alternative, you can consider installing deep crown molding. It is ideal for the scale of the space.
