Since the days of Michelangelo, and before, ceiling art has been popular. This option will not only dress up your basement ceiling, it will add personality to your home. You can either paint a ceiling mural or you can hang art on the ceiling. Many dentist and doctor's offices are using this idea for their treatment room ceilings as well. The art gives you something to look at if you are laying down or looking up for extended periods of time.
Often basements are left partially finished. This means you have open ceilings that show the studs, wires, and the under side of the floor boards above you. The quick solution for this is a suspended basement ceiling. These are easy to install and once installed your basement takes on a more homey feeling right away. You have easy access to any wiring and/or pipes that other ceiling options would have covered up but you don't have to look at them every day.
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!
Ok, so not everyone happens to be a huge fan of colored ceilings. In fact, some readers might give you that bemused look if you give them this tip. But put those eyebrows down first - here are some reasons why a colored ceiling isn't such a bad idea at all...
One of the most important things to consider when remodeling your basement is the basement ceiling. People find basement ceilings a bit hideous and if you are of the same opinion, then you need to do something about it. Most people want their basement to be warm and cozy, instead of that desolate look often acquainted with an unfinished basement. There are different basement ceiling ideas to make your ceiling a place that you want it to be. Basement ceilings may either be dry walled or suspended. You can choose which kind to install but always remember to add decorative touches in order to make them look exactly like any other rooms in your home.
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.
